project life 2012: i'm doing this...

this is my third year with project life
complete honesty: years one and two are incomplete.
i will get to them, likely in a monthly/major event format but, i'll get to them. one day.
today, my focus is on this year. staying current. making the most of year three.
doing things differently.

i'm taking a lot of iphone photos and processing them through instagram. instagram syncs to a great app called momento that pulls together those photos plus my facebook and twitter feeds in a calendar. why is this important? this way, my journaling is nearly done for me in a virtual format. i go in and make notes about milestones and anecdotes but, the rest is there and ready for me to draw on when i sit down with my album and photos on tuesdays.

my approach this year is fairly simple.
use the amazing, colorful cobalt kit and design a page protectors.
add a bit of washi tape and a sticker here and there (pulled from my "extras" box, pictured below) and, most importantly, just get it done.
even with a toddler and a newborn underfoot, i am doing just that.  i'm making documenting their lives, our family, a priority and i'm enjoying it. 
without stress.
i love that.


one month of jack...

My sweet, tiny baby,
Somehow it's been a full month since you wailed your way into the delivery room and captured our hearts. You have a sweet disposition, are easy going and a good sleeper and eater. You truly are the most perfect addition to our family!
At one month you:
  • weigh 9lbs, 5oz and are 20 3/4 inches long
  • are wearing newborn clothes but, not much longer
  • wear size 1 diapers
  • eat about every 3 hours during the day and cluster feed in the evenings for a few hours before bed
  • have a head of straight, dark brown hair and your front hairline has just started receding
  • have beautiful grey-blue eyes, for now
  • only cry when you are hungry or need to be changed
  • sleep best when swaddled tight and in your snugabunny rock and play
  • nap in your bouncy seat a couple of times each day
  • like being worn in the Moby Wrap
  • started smiling at us around three weeks, the sweetest sight :)
  • get kisses good morning and good night from your big brother and like to watch him play
  • have excellent head control and like to look all around when doing tummy time on our chests 
  • track us across the room when we are walking around or you hear us talking
We love you so much and are so grateful you have joined our family.
I love you to the moon and back, and again,
