project 365-2017; days 85-91

Holy smokes! I am almost to 100 days of this photo challenge. I am surprised that I have been able to keep up with it as life seems to get busier by the day. Subsequently, the busier we are, the lazier I feel (I don't know how that is possible, other than the fact that I am 30+ weeks pregnant with 3 other children who need me, so any free time I have involves a lot of lying down and watching the iPad).

I did have an innocent slip-up this week that I must confess. Luke was out of town for a few days, which means we all managed to function in a fog of chaos, Netflix, take-out food, and extreme exhaustion for this mama. I thought I had taken a photo each day this week, but when I was toggling back through them on my camera, I realized I missed a day in there when he was away.

Had I actually taken a photograph, it probably would have been of multiple unbathed children running around in just their underwear counting up all their new Happy Meal toys because they visited McDonald's 4 times in 3 days. Nothing worthy of preserving in a photograph for years to come, let me tell you.

So, I took two in one day to make up for it. I know, I know. Tell the Project 365 police that I cheated, but two years ago a misstep like this would have caused me to throw in the towel and quit completely. I didn't want to do that this year. I have come too far to give up now. Forgive me, will you?

Bedtimes without Papa are not anyone's favorite. I think was singing to Shiloh in this moment, but no one can do it like he does.

You would have thought the girls hit the lottery when I dug out two, new, unopened packages of markers for them to use. I seriously hate markers, but they seriously love them...so this simple joy made for hours of fun for them. And can we just look at that grip? Way to go, Shiloh! :-)

The light was right, and I just wanted to capture a couple of my favorite features of Charlotte's face. Her tooth gap is so amazing. With an identical gap on the top and bottom, she has the perfect little smile. And then a cleft chin that would make Clark Griswold jealous. She is so different and unique-looking.

Papa returned from his trip, and the girls couldn't wait to "shoot hoops" with him. They look forward to it and enjoy it as much as he does. Shiloh had the perfect dunk with the perfect assist from Luke.

I caught Charlotte watching TV like this. I don't see how it would be comfortable at all, but she stayed like this for quite a while. Whatever floats your boat, I guess.

A rainy week meant we were happy to be outside in the sun and watching the clouds over the weekend. Noelle and Charlotte were pointing out the shapes, and Shiloh was in her own world looking in the opposite direction.

I give him the hardest time. I am not the best wife at all times. I have been a pregnant monster for several weeks. But he is so good to me...them...us. They love him more than anything and these moments remind me that I am so lucky.
