Zollie: "Mommy have you ever been on a date?"
Kingston: (comforting Zollie) "Don't worry Zollie, it will be okay, we will figure it out." 
Kit: "I want to get up/out." His new favorite phrase + he now jumps on the bed.

a photo of my boys every week in 2016

I almost wanted to redo this week's photos b/c technically, they aren't my favorite. The lighting in my home isn't ideal, especially at the hour we took these photos, but then I remembered: this project isn't about me. It's for my boys, I want to preserve these memories for them and our life isn't perfect, so the photos don't need to be either.  

Zollie: Big brother torture mode is in full effect, but so is teaching mode
Kingston: All about telling people what a great job they did on the potty. "wow! great job mommy, that was a big one."
Kit: On the move. This guy started walking this week! (my mommy heart can't take this)

Zollie: Snow is officially is favorite thing. Oh, and his baby brother Kit. Can you say all the kisses? 
Kingston: Eating snow is his favorite thing. Actually, eating every ting is his thing. Food is his def his love language. 
Kit: A little peeved that he couldn't play in the snow. But he did watch from the window and grunt loudly.

Excited to challenge my creativity this year with the 52 project. I can't wait to look back over the year and see the growth and progress my boys have made. At the end of the year, I plan to create a book of the year's photos. It will also be a special keepsake for our children one day to see how they looked looked through my eyes. There is nothing like embarking on a new creative journey, especially when you have support.  I'm happy that my talented friend, Aspen ReneĆ© Cross is kicking off her 52 project as well, so we can cheer each other along. I hope you will follow us on this journey and even start a project of your own.
