Project Life 2014: Week Two

Goodness...I didn't realize just how far behind I am on sharing until today. I'm "behind" on my books too, but I'm okay with that. I've got a lot on my plate, but I have figured out a flow...and I'm loving it. Somehow it helps keep me from feeling completely overwhelmed. 
 Yep....still working on 2013...but again. TOTALLY okay with that. 

So here is week two of 2014:
I think I pretty much went with Coral for this entire spread. Which is unlike my usual mix and match of kits. I only have partials of Coral, but it's totally my favorite. I think might have to break down and just get a full kit. 

page one:
Can I just say it's weird looking a preggie pictures of me while the little mister is rolling all over the floor...it's weird. I introduced the boys to The Doctor, Nox took a bunch of photos of Munch (LOVE LOVE LOVE including their photography in my albums) and the boys played games on napkin phones...who needs technology?

insert:
John got me a remote for my camera for Christmas and we were having a REALLY off day so the boys and I decided to try it out. SO much fun was had...probably a full hour of pictures and giggles. Goodness the boys look SO little. I cut down a coin protector sheet and cut the pictures down to 2x2...perfect.

page two:
We had uncommonly fantastic weather this week and Munch got to ride his new bike. I love nice days in the middle of Winter. I also included a currently card (from Rukristin). Such a great way to give a general view of what you've been doing that week.

I am a little late to the party, but I'm linking up with Day to Day

I'll Eat You Up

I haven't digi scrapped in a while, but I felt inspired by these pictures I took of Nox the other day. I've had this kit forever and while I have plenty of pictures that would work perfectly with it, I haven't done a thing with it until now.

6 Months

Happy turned six months this past Sunday. 
He has some weight issues going on, but is otherwise is a healthy boy. 

There are two little teeth coming up on his bottom row. You can't see them yet, but you can absolutely feel them. 

Happy reaches up to touch my face now and he will sit for a minute so we can examine each others faces. My heart swells every time. 
He loves his Daddy. His whole face lights up when John walks into the house. 

Workouts consist of mostly strengthening his core. 

Naps are ridiculous...WHY he has to nap and his brothers don't just escapes him completely. 

I love this stage of babyhood. It is so much fun to watch him explore and interact with his surroundings. He loves to experiment with sounds and it cracks us all up when he talks to his reflection. Love this sweet boy so much.

Currently 10.24.2014


Watching: Reign on Netflix. It's about Mary Queen of Scots...and I would never call it historically accurate...at all...(seriously there are things that made the history lover in me flinch.) BUT I am enjoying it.

Reading: The Custom of the Army - Diana Gabaldon The book is a short little novella following an adventure of Lord John Grey (one of the Outlander characters). After getting caught up on The Outlander series I just wasn't ready to move completely on. While Jamie and Claire are not in these books, it does help me get my fix. Just a little. 

Listening: To Nox belt out Dynamite by Taio Cruz in the back seat of the van. EVERY time we get in the car. 

Making: A quick photo album for Nox's  preschool teacher. She's retiring after more than 20 years and we are so sad to see her go. The picture above is one that a grandmother of one of the students sent me. She took it at one of our early Mommy and Me classes. Look at Nox's sweet cheeks! It's really amazing how many times you can fall in love with your babies. 

Feeling: Off...I can't for the life of me figure out why, but today something just doesn't feel right...and so far I haven't been able to shake it. 

Planning: A road trip to Missouri just after Christmas. I cannot wait to see my sister, brother-in-law and my new adorable little niece. 

Loving: October. The slightly cooler weather...the fact that I was able to organize the little boys and Kaiser yesterday for a walk.

Six...Almost Seven

My Munchman turned six yesterday. I have been a Mama for SIX years. 

He ran in to our room in the morning so excited to tell us he wasn't five anymore....he was six and THAT is almost seven. He is in SUCH a hurry to grow up. Last week he asked how long it would be till he got to drive, because he wants a red truck, so he can drive his kids to school. 


He is so curious about the world around him. We watch documentaries on King Tut and Dinosaurs. We talk about bones and science and sometimes he stumps me with his questions. I hope he never ever loses his love of knowledge. 


Red is his favorite color. He talks about his wedding party, because he's convinced that someone will get him the Lego Death Star if he has one...we like practical registry items. He loves watching Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit and Harry Potter and I hope one day he'll love the books just as much. He enjoys Doctor Who almost as much as I do. 


Munch has always been laid back, relaxed and outgoing. He has his bad moments, but he is such a good, sweet boy. His brothers could not have asked for a better big brother. He reads them books, plays with them for hours, is more patient than I am sometimes. He is such a big and wonderful help and I would be lost without him. 

Happy Birthday Munch.
