After reading about the 52WeekProject from Bekka I thought it would be fun to do... but I haven't posted any of my photos..... Plus I wanted to have a few of my own rules... so for me and this project I'll be doing... photos of Me - once a week... photos of Rainee - once a week (yeah right... one photo a week are you kidding me??? lol!!!!)... Plus my goal was to do a photo of Rainee & I together each week... but I forgot to do them the first 2 weeks... I think because I'm so use to us not being a photo together, it didn't cross my mind when we were taking these first 2 weeks... so here is my own rule... take a photo together once a month... AND I'M NOT GOING TO FORGET.... THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN!!! And my other rule is I can take the photo ANYTIME during the week... this took the stress off me to get it done on a specific day... so anyway here are the first 2 weeks of the my 52WeekProject.

Rainee Week1 ~ so this... is January 8th... 2 days before Steve's birthday... and the ToysRus balloon he received... which of course is really for Rainee!

Rainee Week2 ~ the before and after of her new hairdo... I love the new 'do' photo... she was pretending to be a model.... pursing her lips... hand on hip... you should have seen her... it was crazy-cute!!! Anyway... this one showed her 'do' the best... but you can bet I'll be scrapping the others of her striking a pose!!! 

Me Week1 ~ Rainee & I were playing board games... and I mentioned that I needed to take my photo... and she stopped everything and took this photo of me...

Me Week2 ~ I too have a before and after of hairdo photo... My hair had been bugging me... and I've been feeling a bit 'shaggy'... so I decided to cut it shoulder length... but the scissors kept going... I love how it turned out and Nikki did a great job... but it is shorter than I was thinking... at least it will grow, right??? Yeah for new hairdo's!!!

Now some of you may be wondering... What about Steve???? Well, I did try... but he didn't want to have anything to do with it... besides it's hard enough trying to get him to do the once a year family photo... that I decided to pass... it's not worth the struggle to get a photo... plus (I'm hoping) once the year is up he'll see how great it would be to do and do it next year with us... well, a girl can hope can't she???? 

Well, that's it for my first two weeks of the 52WeekProject I know I'm going to enjoy seeing all the photos at the end of the year... especially of the changes in Rainee. So... have a delightful Thursday... and I'll see you tomorrow!

I'm glad you're doing this! The photos look great! (PS - Steve sounds like Mike.) :)

This is going to be a wonderful "snapshot" in Rainee's childhood and by including photos of the two of you together you will be grateful years from now.
I'm going thru photos from when my kiddos were little and really regreting the huge gaps.
Have fun.
