Week in the Life 2014 – Monday

I guess I didn’t do week in the life last year? I can’t find anything about it in my archives. That makes me more excited than ever to participate this week, as it’s the first time Bennie’s in the mix! See my archive of Week in the Life posts here. Inspired by Ali’s project.
9:19 AM
The only time I get to watch something for grown-ups, but Bennie’s almost catching on so it’s not going to last.

Tuesday is already in her leotard, starting rest time by looking at her book, “When I was a baby…” And asks me to get down the big scrapbook full of layouts of her (we keep it in her room now).

Working on the binding. I should start Halloween costumes (yes, start), but I just can’t help myself I guess.

Noticed: The day bookended by technology. Still lots of nursing going on, first thing in the morning, and at naps, falls, etc. I need to plan for meals. It always falls apart when I don’t. Harder to lug the big camera around with both the girls. I might have to give into Bj saying I need something smaller. Also I need more tops with pockets.

  1. Love this post!! I love all the photos of you and the girls, and your house. You are doing a great job taking photos throughout the day. I am attempting to participate this time, but I really need to beef up my photos. I’ve posted on the Instagram my only photos so far, but I also need to post on my blog. I’ll try to do better tomorrow 🙂

  2. Looks like we barely missed you at roth’s! LOL like by minutes (we were there around 5:15).
    You didn’t take any pictures of our lovely rain??? Our favorite activity currently is jumping in puddles.
