365 Self-Portrait Project (week 22nd)

I am so confused lately that I forgot to post Thursday’s picture last week. I just figured that out. I’m just not feeling very good lately.

So here we go:


On Thursday I was on Skype talking with my parents in Poland. They are not really an “Internet people” so each time I call I send them link to my blog. They love to look through the pictures of me and their grandkids.


On Friday I was hanging out in a pool area with the kids. No 2 while wiggling her legs and arms was enjoying the fresh air blowing on her. No 1 was running around the pool in circles. For about an hour non stop ๐Ÿ™‚

She still does not want to have anything to do with the water. She just LOVES to play around it.


On Saturday we went to a playground. I didn’t take my camera with me so I used my husband’s phone to take those shots.

Our No 1 just loves swings. She always has. Now she is using the regular swing and watching her I was just thinking that it seems like it was just a few months ago when she had to be in that secured “infant” swing chair.

Time just flies by when you have kids.


On Sunday I made “carrot pate” and here you see me mastering I CAN DO ANYTHING WITH ONE HAND WHILE AT THE SAME TIME HOLDING MY NO. 2 style.


I think that the fairy would claim a bankruptcy if she worked with me this past week. Almost no smiles what so ever. No matter how hard everybody tried. At the same time I feel like instead of blood there is a green tea and honey flowing in my veins. I drink only one coffee a day (because of the nursing) and while I don’t want to drink more of it I do need some kind of boost to get through the day. And it’s a green tea. A LOT OF IT! Cup after cup. MANY CUPS.


Tuesday was kinda pajamas day. For me and for NO 1. And a walking barefoot day, too. We like to walk barefoot.


On Wednesday I had a delicious veggie-fruits smoothie for dinner.

After that while husband and NO 2 were napping I took NO 1 outside for some shooting.

and more:

And I swear for my mother… we are rising a future archeologist or a miner ๐Ÿ˜‰ This girl’s best toy when she is outside are stones and rocks. She always sneaks them to the house where I find them hidden all over the house… .

Anyway, today’s selfie is not taken yet, and it’s 6:30 pm already. It’s really been a struggle to keep up with this project lately but I am committed to finish it.

Have a wonderful Friday, my friends.

Add yours

  1. So many great black and whites in this lovely post. Hope you regain your energy soon. It’s not easy being the mom of two little ones. Hang on … You certainly will look back on all these wonderful photographs documenting your days, and remember how precious this time was. Thank you for sharing with Photo Art Friday.


  2. Great shots of number one! So funny. My dad always complains that I never share anything about my life. I tell him, if you would stop being so stubborn and learn how to turn on the computer, you could look at my blog. My whole life is on there. He refuses. So I refuse to share.
    You are one talented one-hander. Don’t think I could cut so well!


  3. Just reading your post and looking at your photos reminds me of the mom exhaustion we all experience when our children are little ones…I love all your images! What wonderful snapshots of your life. Thank you for sharing! Your photography is lovely.


  4. Wow you have a busy life for sure. The photo session you had with No.1 turned out great. She has such expressive eyes and I can see where she gets them from. The B/W Shot of you with the Tea Cup shows though same gorgeous eyes. Hang in there.


  5. Okay, first off I’m thinking your one talented mom to hold your baby, cut carrots AND capture that with your camera! lol Oh, it’s something that at the time is so tedious yet we older moms look back on as the good old days sometimes. Such hard work, so many rewards. My youngest will be a freshman next year, and all I swear all I did was blink! Love you submission to PAF, well love them all! (and that quote gave me a much needed laugh this morning, thanks!) Kim


    1. that quote made me laugh as well ๐Ÿ™‚ when I saw it for the first time I knew I must use it somehow ๐Ÿ™‚
      I realize that with the kids time flies by much faster. It seems like a few months ago I had our first baby… but actually its been more than two years already !


  6. Give yourself a break, mom of 2!!! I’m in awe of your daily (hourly) accomplishments! I can just imagine (well, not really) me trying to chop vegetables while holding a newborn. I’d likely have toes in there! YOU are amazing!

    Great shots of No. 1 – she is too cute!
    Thanks for stopping by!
    Blessings on your day!


  7. I smile every time I come here because I just love the way you are documenting your children’s young years with these photos. Beautiful photos of your oldest, i just love her hair! ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. first of all.. thank you for coming back each week ๐Ÿ™‚
      second of all… I had no idea that this project will turn in such a “journal” for me and my kids when I first started it. I am really happy how it’s turned out for us.


  8. The cautious first child…ours is still fearful of the water. She finally gets in, but she’s almost 6!

    I know what you mean about the smiling. It’s exhausting and sometimes you want a break from it all (especially the nursing because I feel like she’s attached to me), but you can only have a short one.

    You’ve got mad cutting skills. No way I could do that while holding my #3…she’s such a wiggle worm.


Don't be shy and let me know what's hiding in your head!
