this much [17 mos] | Personal Project

This month has been a month full of of imitation. This girl does everything I do. Right down to the inflection in my voice. She may look just like her father, but she is ALL ME. Heaven help me. I know what kind of dramatic teenager I was.

She is stirring pots. & kissing babies. & giving “loves” to rusty boy with a pat, pat, pat. Her fuse is SHORT. (can’t imagine where that came from.) & I find her wandering off to quiet when she is in busy social situations. She has very definite opinions & knows exactly what she wants. & what she doesn’t. & what she doesn’t want is to wear any other shoes but these owl shoes. She grabs them from her shoe drawer every day & brings them to me saying “whooo whoooo” and then tries to put them on herself. I melt every time. :) It’s adorable.

My little helper spent a couple long mornings without me when my parents were in town. My dad & I tackled the construction of my fun feature wall in the playroom & my mom took care of the babes. She liked to come out & see what I was doing every so often. & of course, she wanted to dive right in. I figure it’s never too early to let a girl get her paint on.

This image is courtesy of my hubby (!!). We are putting the final coat on 12 foot picture ledges that span wall to wall above the 4 ft high magnetic chalkboard paneled wall, that also runs wall to wall. It’s perfect. I love it. I just need to order the images. BIG images. :):):)

Now who is still with me? Link below if you are joining me in this project! It’s never too late to come along for the ride…’cause every mama needs pictures of her & her babe.

I am contemplating doing Project 52…a weekly image project. I am not sure I can commit. Thinking about it…anyone else doing it?

  • shannel - I’m due March 19th, and though I’m not a photographer, I’m thinking about joining up on this monthly image project later this year! I’m assuming I’ll be taking a million pictures of our baby girl anyway, and what a nice way to capture the details of her growth and changes. :)ReplyCancel

  • Jodi R. - I’m going to do Project 52…they let me in even though I signed up late, but I’m a little vague on the details. I’ve narrowed down a theme. You should totally do it!! C’mon. :)ReplyCancel

  • Tori @ FIToriBLOG.com - Doing a project 52 but some weeks I’m sure the pics will just be in the house & others I’ll venture out for a challenge!ReplyCancel

  • Chelsea McCown - My this much post for this month! http://mcbabybump.blogspot.com/2011/01/this-much-12-mos.html

    And I am doing Project 52, no real theme, just what comes to me!ReplyCancel

  • Sara - Here is mine! This is so fun… it makes me look through all our pictures for the past month and then it gets hard choosing just one!

  • Colleen Sheehy - I love this photo. Too cute. My little is 28months and I am expecting a second in June. I haven’t been taking to many picture lately because morning (all day) sickness has gotten the best of me, but I really like the idea of a project 52. It takes some pressure off of a project 365 (which I couldn never commit to). I really want to capture the time I have withe my daughter before baby number 2 comes. Thanks for the inspiration and motivation. I need it right now.
    Oh, on a side note, I’ve been looking for double strollers for a toddler and newborn, but am not sure what to buy. Have you heard anything? I can’t afford the bugaboo (boo!).ReplyCancel

  • Shannon - I might do it but I might call it Project Me instead of 52 in case I can ‘t commit too! I know I can take the pics, it’s just getting them ready and loaded that I struggle with!
    Just do it though-it’s always fun!ReplyCancel

  • Lauren - Already painting?! Would she be willing to come stencil my baby nursery for me? I could use the help. ;)ReplyCancel

  • Rosina - ….and I was going to tell you…I love this image. I love images that tell stories, it’s always been a passion of mine. :) Don’t be too hard on yourself–I would LOVE if you would do the 52 project! But if not I totally understand…because I quit my 365 last year. :\

    Anyway, don’t restrict yourself to certain rules–you are only supposed to take ONE picture per week for 52 weeks. You don’t have to blog anything until you feel like it! I’ll be following you! :)ReplyCancel

  • Casey - Jumping back on the band wagon..was working on my photo wall tonight and am seriously lacking some pics of me and my kiddos!!!
