happy 1/2 birthday to jack!

Our sweet Jack turned 6 months yesterday. Half a year already flown by! His well visit happened to be yesterday as well so, his stats are up to the minute. At six months he:
  • weighs 16 pounds and 26.5" long
  • is wearing size 3-6 clothing and size 2 dipes (soon to be 3's)
  • started solid foods this past weekend with sweet potato, followed by squash
  • is sitting unassisted
  • loves being outside for walks and our park trips
  • is not even close to sleeping through the night
  • is super ticklish and has the best belly laughs
  • is super happy and smiley
  • loves to play with his feet
  • chews on his thumb or first two fingers
  • has no sign of teeth but is full of drool
  • is attempting to scoot around but, not quite there yet (I can wait!)
  • reaches for us
  • gets super excited when Baba comes home from work at night
  • babbles and shrieks through the day
  • likes to be cuddled and carried
  • is strong and likes to stand (holding our fingers) for long periods of time
  • is an absolute sweetheart!


project life: up to date...phew!

As promised, I photographed and am sharing the last five weeks of my Project Life album. Done. Through this past Sunday, July 29th! I've been keeping with my scheduled Tuesdays to complete each week and it's been a good plan.

You may notice in the last few weeks that I have been using many more digital cards and elements. Time is short and the most important thing about this project is that I document our life right now, record the bits that would otherwise be long forgotten and take photos each day. Using our computer as a "supply" to keep on top of this album is sometimes just an easier way.  As much as I love using all kinds of fun paper goods, I'm okay with that. Again, Project life is about documentation - however that works for YOU! One week that may mean lots of handcrafted elements and others it may be lots of typed journaling. I don't feel that my album has to have a cohesive design. The "design" is our family. It's what works for me.
