So I fell of this project for a few weeks. Eeee. I guess that was inevitable. But I’m hoping to start again this week.

We spent the weekend in Palm Springs, at one of our favorite hotels. The grounds are so lush and big. Perfect spot for little boys to explore while their parents pretend they are on “vacation”.

Forrest being the delicious dumpling that he is.

That time Brooke Schwab came to town and shot a bunch of gorgeous photos of my guys.

Lots more over on Cakelet!

We visited a different park this weekend. How adventurous! Forrest naturally runs to the farthest corners of the park, stomping in sprinkler puddles and chewing on seed pods. While Dashiell works intently at the excavator in the sand box. It wasn’t the greatest week for photos, but I imagine some will be like that this year.

Forrest is (if I do say so myself) a pretty amazing self-entertainer for his age. I’ll give the credit mostly to birth order, but he really does surprise me on the daily.

And Dash, my funny goofy guy. As four approaches I’m sense some changes for him. New boundaries to push, more questions than I could possibly ever answer. Just doin’ his job, every day.

I swear I don’t normally dress them like twins, it’s just with hand-me-downs and all, they end up wearing the same clothes all the time.

They’re both totally digging the sunglasses we picked up at the Honest party last week. It was really fun, and even though I am generally in the habit of flaking at the last minute, especially when it involves an event that I have to drag both kids to after a full day of work, (not to mention make myself look presentable), I’m so glad we went.

And a quick plug for their products because I can’t resist… we’ve been using them since Forrest was born and I really genuinely think they’re a great company. So if you’re curious… you should totally give them a try!

I’ve already fallen off the wagon, people. Last week I didn’t get any photos that I love of the guys. But do you know who did? Jamie. She stopped by for a bit on Sunday, to shoot some photos of our newest family member, Melanie‘s baby Huck, and the rest of our families too. She’s quickly becoming our official family photographer and that’s perfectly fine with me.

Thank you, James.

Gorgeous weather last week made the third week easy. There’s just no place more entertaining for children than the beach. Why must I forget this for such long stretches of the year?

I think I am supposed to post just ONE photo of each kid, each week. But I’m kind of digging more of a little photo story instead. Also it’s incredibly difficult to get an actual portrait of these two. Moving moving moving all the time.

I feel like I deserve a tiny medal for actually following through with the second week of The 52 Project. This probably doesn’t bode well for my success with the year, but I will take it week by week and see how things go.

Last year I remember seeing lots of mamas I follow on the internets participating in a weekly project documenting their children every week for the entire year. I clicked around a bit over the weekend and finally traced it back to Jodi of Practicing Simplicity (I have been out of the blog loop for-ever!). So here we are, almost the first week of 2014 has passed, and just in time I’m starting.

I’m excited to have a little project for this blog and one that makes me use the big camera once a week. I’d love to turn this into a tiny photo book next January. We’ll see if I can stick with it. I will probably always be a bit behind, but I will do my best.

I’d like to think that this will keep me focused on what’s important for reals, vs what appears to be important on the internet. Which is kind of weird since I’m posting on the internet. But it’s going to be real life, you know? The stuff that has always been interesting to me, before everything had to be perfectly styled and professionally photographed and Pinterest worthy. Don’t get me wrong… that’s part of my job too, but it’s not my *life*. I’m going to try my best to remember that in 2014.

Anyone else joining in?
