Project 52

This last year I came across a fabulous Mommy-photographer-DIYer-and all around great person that opened my eyes to the Project 52 idea. Thank you Shawna from styleberryblog. What a beautiful way to chronicle the year and share the feelings that only motherhood can open your soul to. I want my daughter to know what joy she brings into our lives and the lessons she teaches us. I don't want to miss one minute of it or let these sweet memories fade. This is for you Aubrey... My daughter, my joy, and my life.

Project 52:8 | excited

"Look Mama, Look!"  She can't get enough of showing us things, of sharing her excitement. I love it that when something interests her she wants us to be a part of it.

Project 52:7 | having an Oma

Not just ANY Oma but Aubrey's Oma. I never had grandparent relationships because we always lived too far away from them but I get to experience it now and... wow... Watching these two together, seeing what Mommy is teaching Aubrey... It's what shapes a person. It's her legacy being passed to me, to Aubrey, and one day to Aubrey's children. Their bond is unique and special and funny and beautiful to witness. Even when Oma sneaks her extra treats saying "but that's what grandma's are supposed to do!".

I snapped this one day while Oma was telling Aubrey about the day we brought her home from the hospital. She held her just like this, in this very spot. I look forward to many many more Oma stories for Aubrey. She's a very lucky little girl.

Project 52:6 | appreciative

She plays hard... She sleeps hard... It's all or nothing with my girl and I love it. Her passion for life. The way she finds joy in the simplest things. The way she has of making me slow down and appreciate what I've been blessed with. Thank you my sweet baby for showing me what's truly important.

Project 52:5 | cuddly

There's nothing better than morning cuddles... Giggles and grins. Laughter and hugs. Kisses that don't stop. This is what makes my world go round.
