Project Life 2012 - Week 10

Welcome to Project Life 2012! If you are new to my blog, welcome! I hope you will stay a while. 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 bottom of this post.
And finally, my POTW (pictures of the week):

Sunday - Maddie definitely loves food. When she sees us eat or drink ANYTHING she stops and stares at us and then makes mouth eating motions. We gave her asparagus for the first time today. I think she liked it better than even the squash. She literally tried to throw herself at the spoon and didn't just open her mouth but stuck out her entire tongue. LOL! She ate 2 ounces the very first time. She is really starting to get distracted with her bottle though. She babbles a lot while drinking, so she is making quite the mess. Maddie has also started laughing a LOT. We gave her a little crocidile that says colors in english, french and spanish and she laughed hysterically at us for about 30 minutes. It was so cute.

Monday - We finally put Juan's house on the market again. Here's hoping it sells quickly!

Tuesday - I made a ton of baby food today for Maddie. This round was asparagus, green beans and zucchini. Hopefully she likes them!

Wednesday - We gave Maddie green beans for the first time today. She ate them, but didn't seem to be too impressed. She also is using her fore finger and thumb to pick up things. She layed on her pink mat today and picked up her bug and turned it over back and forth looking at it and putting it in her mouth. She is starting to reach for things.

Thursday - Grandpa has been coming to visit Maddie 2-3 times a week in the afternoons. They both have a great time. This afternoon, Juan fed her green beans and she choked most of them back up. She was pretty much gagging herself the entire time and only ate about 1 ounce. I don't know if she didn't like them, wasn't hungry, or was confused because Daddy was feeding her.

Friday - Juan wanted to go buy Maddie some new clothes, she has grown out of everything again. He wanted to go to Off the Rack and Nordstrom so I told him I waanted to go with him.  We bought her a few things at each place and then decided to stop in at Old Navy. We hit the jackpot and found a TON of cute things, super cheap. We went a little crazy, but since we were buying 12-18 months we thought she would have plenty of time to wear them...... wrong we were. A couple of the pants are already too small! My girl is growing like a weed! Today Maddie sort of reached for Juan. She was sitting on my lap and he asked her if she wanted to "come with Daddy" and she flapped her little arms and kicked really hard. I think she did want to go with Daddy. She later did the similar with me.

Saturday - Today Maddie and I went on our first road trip. Nana road with us and we went to Tahlaquah, OK to a scrapbook retreat. Joining us was Angie and little Kayla (8-1/2 months), Aunt Vanessa and little Ashlyn (15 months), Shannon, Debbie, Carrie and little Lauren (2-1/2 years), Sabrina and Joselyn (6 years), and friends Sabrina, Michelle, and Michelle. It was about a 4-1/2 hour drive and we left at 5:30 am. Maddie did great in the car until about the 3-1/2 hour mark. It was slightly crazy with so many little ones, but they all did really great and enjoyed each other.

Thanks for visiting!!!!
