Project Life - Week 17

Welcome to Project Life 2015! If you are new to my blog, welcome! I hope you will stay a while. I'm Jessica, wife to Juan, mommy to 3 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.

I am using a digital kit on Shutterfly. This digital version is SUPER easy to use! See my completed pages for 2012 using the Shutterfly - Project Life Turquoise Edition HERE and my 2013 album using the Shutterfly - Project Life Childhood - Mayfield Edition HERE I will hopefully be posting my 2014 pages soon.

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

Thursday - Our last day in Wimberley. We started off with another wonderful breakfast and then headed out for home. We decided to head up 35 and stopped at the Texas Hill Country Olive Company. They make their own olive oils. We got to taste a ton of delicious oils including some fabulous flavored ones. Juan ended up buying a jalepeno and a pineapple oil, while I selected a lemon and a couple of regular oils. We should not have returned along 35N. It was a traffic nightmare and Juan never does well with traffic. It ended up being a very stressful 5 hours.

Saturday - Baby Chloe turned one this weekend and we joined her to celebrate at Harrington Park in Plano. Maddie had fun playing on the playground and playing with the other kids. Juan spun Maddie, Kaitlyn, and Ryan on the tire swing. They were having a ball and Juan was spinning them as fast as possible. Maddie got off and immediately fell head first into the playground pole. When we finally called the kids in for cake and they stopped spinning, Ryan lost his lunch. Danna and I had just been commenting on the fact that one of them was going to get sick. Juan helped clean Ryan up and then we watched Chloe dig into her cake.

Monday - We bought a new shelf from Pottery Barn for my scrapbook room. It is perfect store Maddie's games, playdough, trains, legos, etc. It is much more organized and gives her a place to put stuff back. I think it is going to work great.

Tuesday - Maddie made a catepillar for the end of their "buggy" lesson.

Tuesday - Today was Maddie's first dental appointment. She was very excited to sit in the big chair. She was absolutely amazing. Ms. Sandra explained every tool to her an let her try them out. Maddie was enthralled and loved using the water pick, air pick, mirror, and even the spinning brush. They started with X-rays and Maddie followed directions to a T. Then she opened her mouth as wide as possible and let Ms. Sandra count her teeth (20), polish her teeth, and even let her give her a fluoride treatment. Then Dr. Janelle Bicknell came in and looked at her xrays and counted her teeth again. Maddie wasn't scared once and did everything they asked her to immediately. Ms. Sandra then told her she could get five treasures from the treasure chest. She ended up with about 10, but Ms. Sandra said that was fine since she was so fabulous! Dr. Janelle said Maddie had perfect spacing between her baby teeth and the xrays showed that her big girl teeth are already formed. She even has one tooth in the front on the bottom that is a bit loose. She did say her top right front tooth is crooked and not to freak out when it comes in. She said it is possible her mouth with push it into place correctly. She also said that her top teeth come clear over her bottom teeth and cover them completely. She said that may change completely with her adult teeth, but she may need some sort of orthodonics if it doesn't. The best news was that she did so fabulous that Dr. Janelle said she would probably never need to go to a pediatric dentist. Maddie even asked, "when will it be my turn again" when I was getting my teeth cleaned. She also kept saying, "I want to go see Tooth Brain." We didn't know what she was talking about. I assumed it was something in the treasure chest. Once we left she was asking about Dr. Tooth Brain, saying how much she loved her. I finally realized she was talking about Dr. Bicknell! I have no idea why she was calling her Tooth Brain. We celebrated the afternoon by going to see the "Monkey Kingdom" movie with Daddy. 

Wednesday - Maddie's art project.
