Project Life 2012 - Week 5

Naptime Momtog

Welcome to Project Life 2012! If you are new to my blog, welcome! I hope you will stay awhile. I'm Jessica, wife to Juan, mommy to new baby Maddie. I am also an electrical engineer by day and I am participating in Project Life, a different way to record our lives by taking one photo a day. This was inspired by the fabulous Becky Higgins who has put together a wonderful kit to make this challenge easier.

I am using the digital Cobalt kit, find it at This digital version uses Shutterfly and is SUPER easy to use! See my completed pages for 2012 at

Each Monday/Tuesday, I will post my pictures/journaling from the previous week. Project Life Tuesday was created by Jessica Turner over at The Mom Creative and she hosts a linky for readers to link up their pictures. Project 366 Rewind is hosted by Sarah at Naptime Momtog and Gina at Chic Homeschool Mama, and they also host a linky for readers to link up. So if you want to join in or want to see others POTW, just click the buttons at the top of this post.

Before I post my pictures this week, I wanted to post my finished layouts for January:

And finally, my POTW (pictures of the week):

Sunday - Grandpa Navarro came to visit. Maddie was a little reluctant to go to him at first.  He needs to visit more!

Monday - Maddie can almost get the ring into her mouth. When she can't quite manage it, she just licks it instead.

Tuesday - Maddie and Daddy waiting for me to come back inside.

Wednesday - Things I love right now...little tiny shoes and the little tiny feet that go in them!

Thursday - Travelling today for work to Kansas City. This is the first time I've flown since Maddie was born. Still flight delays, full flights and annoying flight attendants. 16-1/2 hour day by the time I arrived home at 11pm. YUCK!

Friday - Maddie is really trying to hold her bottle. Unfortunately when she does, it falls out of her mouth. She usually grips it around the nipple and pulls it out more than she helps to keep it in.

Also, Aunt Vanessa visited this afternoon. Maddie was a bit leary at first, but was smiling and even laughing at her before she left.

Saturday - We went to Nana's to put up her Elfa in her garage. Nana played with Maddie so everyone was happy.

Thanks for visiting this week!

It's so nice to see shutterfly layouts! They are few and far between, so glad to see yours as a reference. I am going to do the shutterfly book for last year, as I didn't actively do PL last year so do not have nearly the amount of pictures I do this year. If I would just sit down and do it, I am sure I could get it done in a weekend!

Thaks for visiting and leaving sweet comment on my blog.
Your pages look amazing - the digi layouts are so clean yet so creative.
And absolutely heart-stoppingly gorgeous pics of your little one!

Hi Jessica, what a lovely PL you have got there. It is such a precious time with a baby in the house - you will have so many memories saved now.

Your baby is beautiful.

Thanks for dropping by my blog.

Ooh this is the first time I've seen the Shutterfly option done, it's fabulous! You make great pages! I wasn't sure what to expect of the shutterfly books, but you've proven they can be amazing! Love it!

I am always so impressed when someone with a baby is keeping up on PL.
I love your digi layouts. Full of great ideas. I'll be coming back over to look when I sit down and work on next week's layout.

Love that shelving. So great. I really love your pages so far.

Gina said...

I love your layouts. I LOLed when I read your daughter has the best documented life. I often wonder if my boys will think that when they look at my pages when they are 20.

Enjoyed your blog.
