Project 365 {week 20}

If it weren’t for Instagram, I am sort of positive I would fail at Project 365.

As usual, pics taken with the DSLR are marked with a *

The week had more happen than this, but I was either wrangling two kids and couldn’t get my phone out…

or I was forgetting to practice with my camera.

We were busy.


*May 13: Mother's Day. BIGGEST. SMILE. EVER.

*May 14: Charlie is learning that he has hands. flurry of blurry.

May 15: Still looks so little in the bounce seat

*May 16: Baby presents from Sew Curly Designs!

May 17: I cannot stop eating these, so I need to stop making them.

May 18: Skipped nap to go to final Wyoming Park pep assembly with me.

*May 19: when did this Big Kid move into my house and start searching my fridge?

This week Charlie also had his 2 month Well Child Checkup.

At nine weeks he is 12 lbs, 9 oz., 24.5 inches long, with a 41 cm head.

(for reference he was 8 lbs, 10 oz, 21.5 inches at birth)

(at the same age, Eddie was 14 lbs, 25.5 inches, with a 43 cm head)

We grow ’em big in Sluiter Nation.

This week we could also finally get my brothers and their families together to celebrate my dad’s 62nd birthday.

Three weeks late.

Cort’s best friend from high school (and really, one of my very best friends too), was in town from Denver.

Life is busy, but so good.


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. Ok I need the cookie or whatever it was. Love your smile on Mother’s day.. I know all about growing them big my youngest was the runt of my 3 births coming in at 8lb 10 oz. Middle child weighed 9 even and oldest was 8 14. I can’t complain though about labor with the last 2. Oldest tried to blaze his own trail through areas marked do not enter and left me with 30 something stitches. His brothers were nicer despite being bigger.. and shorter labors 3 hours with middle one got to hospital dilated 9 with last one. Yeah this momma don’t play I don’t hurt till it is show time lol.

  2. Yay for a good life!!

    And I’m totally failing at Project 365. Sigh.

  3. Your boys are just precious. I kind of want to know what that cookie is. Though I also kind of don’t…

  4. Love your Mother’s Day pic… it’s just too adorable. Sounds like you did have a busy week. I feel the same way about Instagram… so glad I have that and my camera phone. I love my camera but the phone is just always handy! 🙂
