I started my daycare business at the first of the year. I am lovin' it! I watch 5 kids all under the age of 5. Not all at the same time though! Usually 2-3 kids a days, plus Orion. I always knew that I would have a career that involved children but didn't know what until I had Orion.
Speaking of Orion, he is walking, more like running, and getting into everything! He is becoming quite the vocal little guy with words like: dada, mum, ish (fish), nack (snack), nana (banana), shosss (shoe), jshuice (juice), shisha (auntie tricia) and ba (bottle). I'm sure I probably missed a few. It's quite amazing how he will try to say a word after he has heard us say it!
Has anyone heard of Project 365? It is the "cat's meow" in scrapbooking this year. Well, I learned of it from Becky Higgins Blog but can also be found here http://kitofthemonth.blogspot.com/ I have taken on the task of participating and have found it challenging but very interesting thus far. The concept of the project is to "Preserve a piece of your life every day." I am doing this by taking a picture of anything, literally anything, throughout my day and then journal about it. By the end of the year I will have a Scrapbook!
Here some pictures that are included in my album:
Just a snap shot of Orion and I.
Orion throwing the pillow down and then himself on top of it. (Humorous to watch)
A banner I made for Valentine's Day

He refused to let me put his diaper on and get him ready for bed.
I will have to post a pic of my album and what some finished pages look like. I am very pleased with the results.
