Project 365: Week 39

Sunday, September 19, 2010

Well, the big news today was that Gabriel's alligator hatched out of his egg. It was a very exciting moment.

Lately, Atticus has been saying, "Mommy, watch me!" a lot. Today he'd tell me to watch, then he'd count...

"2, 3, 9" or "3, 2, 9" or "9, 2, 3" and then take off mowing.

Don't ask me why those particular numbers or why they kept being rearranged. That's definitely not the point. Cuteness. Cuteness is the point.

(DISCLAIMER: The above pictures of a child whose shirt looks more like a dress may or may not be entirely due to his mommy's laziness. Just...please overlook.)

My daughter has quirky food issues. Always has. The good thing is they're inconsistent and ever-changing. Right now, she is unhappy with just about any fruit. Except for grapes. (Ironically, grapes used to be her most HATED fruit, while she adored practically everything else!) She's gotten to where she eats around the fruit on her plate. It's just the fruit; vegetables aren't a problem. (I know! Weird, huh?) For a while she would eat the fruit better if she or I cut it into bite-size pieces she could eat with a fork. But even that hasn't helped lately. You know what works now? Having me feed it to her. (What's that all about?) desperate times, her baby brother.

Traveling with four kids. It's not for the faint-of-heart.

Game Day (again!). Watched it with my parents. (Note: Mom likes giraffes a little bit.) We put up a good fight, but things didn't end well for the 'Backs today.

Atticus and his pal, Cubbie, enjoyed their time together by talking and sharing the "pa-panes."

It was a fairly laid-back week, but I still managed to get myself properly exhausted, which is scary considering the next four weeks are going to be C-R-A-Z-Y!!! If my "Project 365" is going to suffer, now is when it will be the most likely. Good thing we can count on Sara, our wonderful hostess to keep things moving on despite life's busy-ness. And now, I am onto what's next! Oh, dear. Here goes...


  1. I remember hating all tomatoes except for the cherry ones when I was a kid - & I can almost point to the day when that changed & I could eat any tomato. Who knows what goes on in the mind of a child!

    All the kids were cute this week, but that Atticus mowing & counting takes the cake LOL.

  2. she gets a variety of foods, just a ways apart. hahah
    she looks healthy to me
    enjoyed the doggie pics especially, so sweet

  3. My daughter would love all of those giraffes. The counting pictures are definately cute! And I may have been just a little bit lazy like that when my kids wore onsies when they were littler.

  4. Great week...loving all of those smiles! My oldest is a non fruit eating boy. It kills me that he used to LOVE fruit. Not now! I try to hide it in some things, but he can always taste it and complain and then not eat it! Maybe I should try feeding it to him! lol That carmal corn looks delish...YUM.

  5. Love love love Carmel corn! It is an all time fav. I used to make huge batches of it for teacher gift back when mine were little!


  6. Love all the kid shots this week! At least Sayolor's pickiness rotates! :)
    Your caramel corn looks yummy.
    I hear you about traveling with 4 kids.
    Don't get too busy and crazy!!!

  7. the onesie-turned-dress is fabulous! eh, it's the fourth. by now we've realized that there are far more important things. at least that's what i keep telling myself. ;)


Whatcha' think?
