100 Days of Holidays

Back before Kate was born, around the beginning of the year, I debated whether to tackle a cool memory-documenting concept called Project 365. It's a scrapbooking thing in which you take a picture a day all year, essentially documenting a "year in the life" of your family. Since Kate would be born in January, it seemed like a good thing to try, to document our first year of parenthood. Alas, it seemed too daunting. I figured I wouldn't stick with it, and the fancy "Project 365" album and kit were sold out anyway.

My "scrapbooking guru," Jessica Turner, from whom I learned of Project 365, also did something last year called Daily December, in which one takes a photo every day of December to document the fun holiday festivities leading up to Christmas. That sounded much more do-able, and I planned to do it this year for Kate's first Christmas.

THEN, I signed up for an e-newsletter through Parents magazine called "100 Days of Holidays." Each day between Sept. 24 and Jan. 1 (100 days) Parents sends a message with fun ideas to celebrate the holidays--Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. It's not a scrapbooking thing, but since I love fall and life is pretty much one big festival from here through New Year's, I decided I would try the picture-a-day thing to document Kate's first fall holidays and Christmas season. That's still 27% of the way-too-daunting 365, but I'm going to tackle it anyway. I don't know what I'll do with these pics scrapbook-wise, but for now I'll post them to the blog on a weekly basis!


(1) Thursday 9/24. Granna gave Kate this fun set of first-holiday bibs--what a perfect way to kick off 100 Days of Holidays! (You can also see the shininess below Kate's nose--she had a runny nose.)
(2) Friday 9/25. I came home from work early to relieve a sick Matt in his caring for a sick Kate. She had fun taking all the diapers out of her diaper bag and playing with them.
(3) Saturday 9/26. Kate had her first finger foods (other than puffs). I don't think she got any of the banana pieces into her mouth, but she can pick them up and she can eat them if I put them in her mouth--it's just getting them from her own hand into her mouth that's the problem!
(4) Sunday 9/27. NaLa and Popi came down to visit so they could see Kate before they leave for Ireland later this week. They arrived just in time for church and left early Monday morning.
(5) Monday, 9/28. Kate is 8 months old today! That means it's time for her monthly Marcel photo!
