JANUARY 26 : Hello sweet, happy girl. You are a lover of life. Easy-going. You are just a few days shy of your first birthday. Almost-walking without any assistance (you actually ended up walking on your own on the 27th). Silly. Those blue eyes.
I am excited to watch life unfold for you.

and carrying around Food Rules
(loved Michael Pollan's other books). Up next: The Happiness Project
JANUARY 28 : Thursday lunch. Turkey, avocado, and some cheese. Pineapples. Most days I try not to eat lunch at my computer. I go to the table. I spread out the paper...and read the news that I have already heard on NPR in the early AM.
We have this spot between our kitchen and dining room where we have been measuring him (and now Anna - who is also like a weed) since we moved in a few years back. He loves being measured. He loves seeing how tall he is getting. He often talks about being "as tall as Mom."
JANUARY 29 : This morning I took three pairs of sweat pants (his pant of choice on no-school days) out of Simon's drawers because they are way past the point of being way too short.
I think he thinks there will be a prize. I need to ask him what will happen when he is taller than me...
All these words & photos are going into my Project Life
album. I am uploading and writing daily (or almost) on Flickr. You can read more about my approach to this project here.
