Week 5

I feel like I’m obligated to admit this – it’s getting harder. To take a picture every day, I mean. In fact, I completely missed a day during week 6. Oops! But I’m very determined to stick with it. I think the fact that I’m stuck inside without a car this week is making it harder. I feel like I have very little variety, and where’s the fun in taking a picture of the same thing everyday? I think it’s good to be a little frustrated though; hopefully it’ll help me push my boundaries of what I generally take pictures of, and force me to look at things in a new light in order to make it more interesting for myself. Here’s hoping, anyway!

Sorry this is 4 days late. I might be without a car, but for some reason this week has been BUSY! I’ll try to get my Week 6 post up on time. Smile

Jan 29

Jan 29 – Yummy homemade wheat bread. Ben’s Aunt Chris’ recipe – she’s a great baker, and I love her bread. Hers is better than mine, but since she’s in Utah, I’m stuck with mine. Winking smile

Jan 30

Jan 30 – Michael’s introduction to the potty! Lol, he loved it! Hasn’t done anything in it yet, but he thinks he is the coolest kid ever when he sits down on it. We’ll be waiting quite a while yet before we do any real potty training, but we figured introducing him to the concept couldn’t hurt.

Jan 31

Jan 31 – Lily had been begging to go outside and use her chalk she got for her birthday for awhile. We finally had a good sunny day with dry sidewalks/driveway, so we took her chalks outside while Michael napped. She thought it was great for about two minutes, then just kept telling me what I should draw.

Feb 1

Feb 1 – Sweet little Michael, reaching for the birds up in the sky. Or as he calls them, “Tweet-tweets.”

Feb 2

Feb 2 – Lily showing off her awesome outfit! The mittens and glasses really make the look, don’t you think? She actually let me do her hair that day, too, so please admire while you can, cuz I can hardly every get her to keep her hair up for long enough to take a picture.

Funny fact – I made Lily go outside just for this picture. The light in my house makes for wonky pictures sometimes, so I really wanted to use the little sun we had that day. She was actually really cold, and didn’t want to smile, but I promised her a cookie or something ridiculous like that if she would help me get a good picture! Smile Motivation, bribery, call it what you want, but it works! Feb 3

Feb 3 – This was taken while we were at my parents house. My mom made an apple cake with streusel  topping, and Lily took a spoon to the extra streusel. She was nice enough to share with Michael. He doesn’t usually let people feed him anymore, but this time he was perfectly content to let Lily feed him spoonfuls of sugar.

Week Five 074

Feb 4 – Yummm. We love grapes, but it seems like we’d always forget about them in the fruit drawer in the fridge. We started taking them all off the stems at once and placing a huge bowl of rinsed grapes in the fridge. Problem solved. We eat them up so quick now! They are a perfect snack.

Ooooo, I just had a fun idea! Since I’m getting tired of trying to think up new pictures, you guys should tell me what to take pictures of! Week 6 is basically over, but if you comment and tell me what to take a picture of, I will make sure to get a picture of it for Week 7. Deal? Please comment, I would love some new ideas!

Have a great weekend!

I always think taking pictures of food is a great thing. Maybe you could try an alphabetical theme, like photograph something that starts with A on day one, B on day two, etc. Or a numerical theme, or colors? I Love the picture of Lily with those rad sunglasses, what a sweet girl!
