first my laptop was out of commission due to an unfortunate passive aggressive moment on my part and then my camera went on hiatus (later to be found in the depths of my diaper bag) now that everything is back in working order here's some Miss K awesomeness...
it really is amazing how big they get and how quickly that happens...I've already had to say farewell to some of my favorite outfits when I realized that she couldn't straighten her legs (technically it was when Mr. Awesome who realized she couldn't straighten her legs because I felt she could straighten them just enough).
So because they grow so fast and because one of my personal words for 2011 is DOCUMENT I've made a plan to keep track of all these milestones in several ways...
1. 52 Week Project
over at Young House Love
I absolutely love this idea by John and Sherry and hope to have the perseverance to make it through the whole year! However, since I didn't start with her first week I'm going to just document every week of 2011 with a weekly photo. To make it even more awesome my bestie is doing the same thing so each of us will just be buying two yards of fabric a month (instead of four) and at the end of the year each of our girls will get a quilt and the grandparents will get an awesome coffee table book. Booyah!!
2. Month in Review
What can I say I love a good template and I am a frequent reader of Kelly Purkey's blog. Her clean, simple aesthetic really appeals to me so I'm super excited about this project as well. Since I can guarantee that I take at least ten pics a month this will serve as an easy way to document our year along the way. And while Miss Purkey does hers as a year in review, I hope to finish each two page layout at the end of each month.
3. 3 People 12 Times
over at Tara Whitney
Go check this project out!! Last February Tara decided that she loved getting pictures of all six of her family members together and so she made a plan to, once a month, make sure that they got a family portrait. The results are just awesome and she actually made it through the whole year. I chose this project because after looking through the last 5ish months of pictures I only have a couple pictures of my whole little family together. What a bummer! But not this year people...I'm all over this:)
