Project 365 | February


Day 32 | February 1, 2017

We made it back to Michigan today. While his daddy was napping, AJ had to play with Mommy's lotions.



Day 33 | February 2, 2017

After almost two weeks away from home, Goobie got to enjoy his own room. Which consisted of laying all his tracks out for his trains and cars.



Day 34 | February 3, 2017

My Friday night; consisting of getting a workout in while watching The Vampire Diaries on TV. I am so not prepared for it to end here in a few weeks.



Day 35 | February 4, 2017

Dad's first day back at work. Which meant that we, meaning AJ and I, get to have a lazy Saturday together. 



Day 36 | February 5, 2017

Today, we started potty training. AJ got a pair of big boy undies to wear as we sit him on the potty every hour. He officially runs away and smiles when you ask him, "Do you have to go potty?" haha 



Day 37 | February 6, 2017

Our life is consumed with trains. Between Thomas on the TV, stepping on little wooden trains on the floor, or having to put together tracks every two seconds, they fill up AJ's room. I'm glad he loves using his fine motor skills to play with these little things, but holy moly they hurt to step on lol. 



Day 38 | February 7, 2017

There are very few moments when I get to take a long shower by myself without having to worry about using up the hot water. When those happen, I take full advantage of them.



Day 39 | February 8, 2017

Nap time is always a fighting moment. I think every excuse in a 2 year olds book is used, without speaking of course. AJ boycotts that, so it is just whining and pulling on his clothes. Normally, that means I lose his socks... actually he does, but I think it is on purpose.


Day 40 | February 9, 2017

Today was the last day of potty training. We decided to give up and wait until later to try again. The struggle is real and boy was it a pain in the ass. I will take diapers for a couple more months and not complain anymore.



Day 41 | February 10, 2017

I have always struggled with my weight. Years battling an eating disorder has never made accepting post baby body any easier. I am slowly learning to accept my body the way it is, but I keep a dedication to making it the healthiest body I can, not the skinniest anymore. And I am okay with that.



Day 42 | February 11, 2017

When mom has free money to Victoria's Secret to spend, she bribes her toddler with play time so he will let her shop. It failed incase you were wondering. AJ got to hang out with grandma a little bit earlier than planned today because of it too lol.


Day 43 | February 12, 2017

When you have a two year old that decided to all of a sudden hate everything in the world food wise.. you compromise with donuts.


Day 44 | February 13, 2017

AJ loves spending time with daddy before he goes to work. Normally, they end up wrestling around the living room and making messes with toys, but at least it's a cute sight to watch. 



Day 45 | February 14, 2017

We rarely celebrate Valentine's Day in my household, normally because we forget about it and secondly, because we're both working. This year was no different, while Daddy was at work, we enjoyed the semi decent weather with a walk. (Well, I walked, he slept)



Day 46 | February 15, 2017

This is how every morning goes. I attempt to do my make up and AJ has to destroy my area. I have my own closet to avoid this, and he still loves playing in it. 



Day 47 | February 16, 2017

It's the little things that mean the most as a parent. As we were getting ready for bed, AJ gave me the biggest hug and kiss. It was perfect, and even though he drives me insane many days of the week, those make up for it.


Day 48 | February 17, 2017

I barely slept today. I was up all night on call for a birth and then had consultations and appointments all day. This is how AJ treated me in the morning. Not a moment of peace exists in parenthood, even when you have to go to the bathroom you always have a buddy. I swear peeing goes from 10 seconds to two minutes easily when he decides he wants to climb. 



Day 49 | February 18, 2017

We got to play at the park today before mommy did some sessions with other photographers. He was determined to climb this damn thing. Nothing I did to talk him out of it worked, so I got to hold his silly butt as he attempted to scale the bridge.



Day 50 | February 19, 2017

A lovely lazy Sunday. Nap time is a struggle though, because do you nap with him when you are so tired... or do you forget the sleep and get everything done in that time? I feel like I never make the right decision.



Day 51 | February 20, 2017

Mondays are boring, I feel like this is always how it goes. The beginning of the work week, another 5 days until some semi relaxation. Ugh, I just hate Mondays lol 


Day 52 | February 21, 2017

When you have to run errands so you don't forget to do them, you bribe your toddler with Magic Milk from Biggby to get them done. 



Day 53 | February 22, 2017

Goobie loves to run over and visit with the neighbor when he is at Grammy's house. He is such a little chatter box, even though none of us know what he is saying.



Day 54 | February 23, 2017

When it is 70 in Michigan in February, youtake full advantage of it. Since we both had the day off, we went to the park and played on the slides. 



Day 55 | February 24, 2017

We went two weeks without internet (Thanks Comcast) and finally got it back today. Four hours of installation and finally we are back on the face of the earth. Which is why I am finally catching up on posting all of my days.



Day 56 | February 25, 2017

It decided to be 20 out today after a week of 60s "tease Michigan" weather in February. I hate the cold, so we stayed in all day. AJ loves my camera, so for his first Christmas, I got him this one. I keep trying to convince him that it is just like Mommy's, but he knows the difference. Smart kid lol.




Day 57 | February 26, 2017

I have been so thrown off with my days this past week, I kept thinking today was Monday. It certainly felt like a Monday, with a crazy rambunctous child, and much needed coffee to even remotely function.




Day 58 | February 27, 2017

AJ wanted me to lay with him and watch cartoons today, which rarely happens. I took full advantage of his snuggles and cuddles.




Day 59 | February 28, 2017

Oh, mom life. I swear there is always a huge blow out diaper so close to bed time. AND it stunk! Antonio came home from work and could still smell it. bahaha
