Project 52:2

Technically this is last week's photo, it just happens that I took it this week. Oops. I kinda love it. This is my life in one quick snap. A little crazy (Mason screaming) a little sweet (Sutton's suprisingly innocent face) and a little wanna-be hot mamma, as evidenced by my attempt to look 'hip' with my tangled, ratty-looking t-shirt scarf. Wow.

Project 52:1

So I have no idea how it started or what it means, but Project 52 is apparently where you take a picture of something every week for a whole year. It apparently revolves around a theme. What an amazing idea! So, here I go. Pic one of 52 for 2012:
Of about 15 pics of us, this was the best. :\
My theme for 52 pictures? Me and the boys. I'm the picture taker in the family. Therefore most of our pics are of one or both of the boys or Rusty with one or both of the boys. By the end of 2012, I will have 52 pictures of the boys with their Mama that they will (hopefully) treasure. This is such a wonderful time in my life. I get to stay at home with our two beautiful, intelligent sons.
On a non-Project 52 note: Uh, we obviously had another baby since my last post. Mere days after my last post, Rusty forced me to put down my beer and take a pregnancy test. Much, much, much to our suprise, we were pregnant after less than a month of trying! Since it took a year to get pregnant with Sutton, we were certainly not expecting it to happen that fast. Fast forward through 9 months of a very easy pregnancy, me quitting my job at UTSA, Sutton's 1st birthday and an amazing delivery and overall birth experience, we have Mason Hayes Brown. Red-haired, blue-eyed Mason. I'm sure people see me with this baby and my brown-haired, brown-eyed mini-me, Sutton and think I stole this baby.
He's such a happy, easy baby. He loves to cuddle and eat (and eat and eat and eat and eat) and smiled for the first time at only 5 weeks old.
Sutton is almost 2 now and is soooo much fun. And knows exactly when to stop being a turd and give me a kiss when I'm about to lose it. Here are some fun things about him:
  •  He calls Mickey Mouse "Hot Dog". I'm assuming because they sing the "Hot Dog Song" at the end of every episode of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
  • He loves hotdogs. He calls Sonic "Hot Dog" every time we drive by.
  • He has an amazing vocabulary. He picks up about two words a week and doesn't forget them. We rarely have trouble understanding what he wants or to what he's referring.
  • He's in the 93rd percentile for height. He must get that from his grandparents, because he certainly didn't get it from Rusty or I.
I am so excited about my Project 52. At the end of the year, I'm hoping to put together a book for each of the boys with all the pictures. Until next week!
