Project 365 {Week 10}

Otherwise known as our last week as a family of three.

As I mentioned yesterday, this week has been full of chaos and stress.

But I didn’t take pictures of chaos OR stress because that is not what I want to remember about this week.

March 4: Lovely friends let us borrow a bassinet for Charlie.


March 5: Baby bottles are washed and ready to go


March 6: new quilt and pillows made just for Eddie by his great grandma Sluiter


March 7: Eddie pulls on my boots and informs me "I mommy. This my coffee. I go to work now."


March 8: new (to me) diaper bag!! (thanks for the deal, Jill!)


March 9: My last day of work for the school year


March 10: We fill up the "free books" shelf with your donations!


This week we begin a  new chapter in Sluiter Nation.

A family of four.

Can’t wait to share with you all.

About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.


  1. Yay!!! It is almost time! I am so excited for you.

  2. So excited for you! And for me–My Charlie will be arriving home from Afghanistan just as your Charlie comes into the world. Charlies are good babies!

  3. Looks like you’re almost ready! Just need baby to make it complete. Can’t wait to read your happy news!

  4. Is it weird whenever I read that you’re going to be a family of four THIS WEEK, I get the chills??? Yeah. Probably. Oh well. I’m so excited! I can’t help it!

    In relation to your photos, I LOVE Eddie’s quilt! Beautiful! 🙂

  5. i love your diaper bag! And look how grown up Eddie is! I bet now he looks HUGE compared to your new bundle!
