Welcome to Project Life 2013! If you are new to my blog, welcome! I hope you will stay a while. I'm Jessica, wife to Juan, mommy to 1 year old 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 kit on shutterfly (hopefully Olive once it has been released), find more info at http://www.beckyhiggins.com/blog. This digital version uses Shutterfly and is SUPER easy to use! See my completed pages for 2012 using the Shutterfly Cobalt kit HERE.
And finally, my POTW (pictures of the week):
Tuesday - Daddy and Maddie went to the Butterfly Farm today and then walked around Fair Park. Daddy bought Maddie this backpack so she couldn't run away from him. I'm not quite sure how well it worked.
Thursday - I finally finished Sarah's baby shower invitations. Now to get them in the mail....
Friday - We took Maddie to the playground at Merriman Park Elementary school. We tried to get her to slide down the slides, but she kept saying, "no, no, no". Then I put her on my lap and slid down the big circular slide, but we really didn't fit. We headed over to yet another set of playground equipment and for some reason she slide down that circular slide by herself. I caught her high and made sure she slowed down. Then she ran up and continued to slide down it 4 more times alone. She also had a blast chasing the birds. She really thought she could catch one!
Saturday - We had a very busy day today. We started out at the Dallas Zoo where Maddie fed the Giraffe's and rode on the Carosel although she was not happy about it. Then we had a play date at Mrs. Abby's with Ellie, Alice, Kaitlyn and Ryan. There was a lot of "roaring" going on. Then we came home and Juan BBq'd for us, Abuelito, Abuelita, Adam and Adam's friend Lisa. Maddie was all excited to slide down our slide by herself. She did great. I guess her sliding down the big slide yesterday gave her the confidence to try our slide. She continued to climb up and slide down the slide over and over. Abuelita and Abuelito just returned from 2 weeks in Mexico and brought Maddie a broom. She rode it around the yard like a horsie.
Sunday - Today we moved Maddie out of her highchair and into a big girl booster seat. She did great on it and hasn't fallen out of it at all. Maddie said her first two word sentence today, "Super Baby". Maddie and I went out front to play while Juan walked the dogs and we went over to talk to Le Anne and Charlie next door. Charlie gave Maddie a flower and then the kiddos chased Juan and the dogs into the backyard. Charlie and Maddie started playing on the swingset and Juan called Maddie "Super Baby" while she was climbing the stairs to the slide. She immediately repeated it.
