Remember when I began the year so strong with the 52 Project, “A portrait of my children once a week, every week, in 2014”??? And then….my camera was packed away…the move…the pregnancy…I found my camera again but didn’t feel like taking pictures…and yada yada yada. I have a big pile of excuses if you want me to keep going. No? Darn it.
I believe it is week 30/52. So we’ll just pick it up where we left off.
Emma still loves to help me in the kitchen and since we make blackberry cobbler every week she’s practically got the recipe memorized. Her eyelashes in that photo kill me.
Shiloh has grown up so much this summer. Still my little four-year-old, but oh so close to being five and wanting to be responsible for big girl chores and spelling words on paper. One day she asked for “honey sandwiches” and I was so tired I told her she could make them herself if she was really careful. I couldn’t believe it but she counted out all the bread – enough for each of us to have one – and made peanut butter and honey for our on-the-go house hunting lunch. She had just a smidgeon of peanut butter in her hair when she was all done and was sooooo proud of herself.
Then there’s my little man. Oh, Keller. He can’t go anywhere without running and we were headed out the door for church this past weekend when he stumbled and fell in the mud – as it was raining, no less. There was mud everywhere and we had to give him a full shower, making us late. Again.
We have a birthday and an anniversary coming up and I couldn’t tell you where this year has gone. What a blur life has been. Hold me to this project at least every other week because I love seeing these schooners change and grow.
And psssst. Madewell has an extra 40% off their sale items with code ENDLESS. I ordered this sweatshirt that can be layered with skinnies or yoga pants for my stay in the hospital and when I’m trying to lose the baby weight this fall.
