Project Life - Week 27

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 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 brought some work home today and Maddie had a great time with the binder clips. She is so inquisitive and was determined to figure out how these thing work.

Wednesday - Maddie loves balloons and definitely has Mama's legs, poor thing.

Thursday - Today is the fourth of July. To celebrate, we went to Summer Adventures at Fair Park. It was discount day, only $15 each and Maddie got in free. She had a blast in the water, there were very few people, and unlimited rides. There was also a train building and a sand box area. We were there for about 4 hours and didn't even do half of what there was to do. Great place! This evening we walked to the corner to watch the Country Club's fireworks. Maddie tried desperately to stay away but didn't last long. The fireworks started at 9:15pm, but after her long day out, she was exhausted.

The video of the fun she had playing in the water is here.

Friday - Today I met baby Ian Kuchera.  He is just two weeks old and new Mommy Sarah is doing well. This afternoon, Maddie and Daddy ate popscicles, but Maddie wanted Daddy to understand that his was "orange". She knows all her colors, so smart.

Saturday - Daddy put together a little table and chair set for Maddie and she was right there "helping". This afternoon she had a strawberry cucumber popscicle that Mommy made with cucumbers out of the garden.

Sunday -  We took Maddie to the bookstore so Mommy could get the new Charlene Harris book. Maddie loves books and had a blast "reading" and digging through all the books in the children's area. She was very upset when it was time to leave.

Monday - Last season's Dexter is finally out on DVD. We watched the entire series in about a week.  This is the final season, don't know if I can wait a whole year to see how it ends. Also Maddie is suddenly counting! She's been counting to two for sometime, but three always seems to trip her up. She figured out three this past weekend and went straight to five!

The video of her counting to five is here.

Thanks for visiting!
