Project Life 2012 - Week 6

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 Project 366 Rewind is hosted by Sarah at Naptime Momtog and Gina at Chic Homeschool Mama. They both host a linky for readers to link up their pictures. So if you want to join in or want to see others POTW, just click the buttons at the top of this post.

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

Sunday - Maddie is just about to roll over on her own. She only needs a teeny tiny push to make it right now.  I think she is going to roll from back to front first. She has also discovered that she loves this little plastic fish. She can easily grab onto the rings and usually can manage to get it to her mouth.

Monday - Daddy decided to play Maddie Cri Cri Mexican music.  She seemed to like it so Daddy has been singing it to her ever since.

Tuesday - Maddie has really became profficient at holding objects and mostly getting them to her mouth. Her little fingers still amaze me!

Wednesday - Maddie hasn't figured out how to jump in her jump-a-roo, but she has figured out how to spin the froggy.  Look at that concentration. Everytime she would spin it, it seemed to surprise her.

Thursday - Diapers, formula and wipes....$260 and we'll be lucky if that lasts us the month. On a brighter note, Maria said Maddie rolled over from her back to her tummy 3 times today. I spent hours this afternoon trying to get her to do it again and she came close, but no luck!

Friday - Maddie rolled over for Daddy today. I missed it by 3 minutes! Then we tried to get her to do it again and Juan and I were talking about the Mylar balloon that is still gracing our ceiling and we completely missed her rolling over AGAIN! I think shes got it down.  Now if she can just figure out how to roll back. This photo cracks me up, she loves to eat the butterfly's tentacles. So strange.

Saturday - Today Juan had a photography gig to take bridal portraits, so Maddie and I went shopping with Mom. We pretty much spent the day with her and then Juan met us in the afternoon to take her to dinner to celebrate her birthday tomorrow. We ended up at Outback Steakhouse. Maddie was a peach the entire day.

Thanks for visiting this week and a special thanks to those of you who leave a comment. They mean SOO much to me!
