Weeks 5 & 6 of my 52 week project – sickness and the city by the bay

Sickness, sickness, and more sickness in our house… Pink eye, sinus infections, upper respiratory infections, high fevers, viruses, and the dreaded GI bug! We started off week 5 getting ready for our first trip away from our boys. We vacationed in our old city of San Francisco for 4 days and 3 nights. We walked past our old building in SF where we lived in Pacific Heights, and had our favorite pizza from Pizzeria Delfina. It rained the entire time, and we had to fly home early on Sunday because our boys were missing us and dealing with pink eye. It was a terrific trip for us, but we were so very glad to be home! Week 6 Tim got to spend his vacation week home bound with sick boys… I think he was secretly wishing he was at work.

Week 4 & 5 of my 52 week project

We’ve been super busy this pas two weeks, so I had to merge these weeks together to capture everything.  I attended a photography workshop where I learned to photograph posed newborns. My photography style has been lifestyle in concept, so there was definitely a learning curve for me and how I would incorporate these into my newborn sessions. The boys were sick for parts of week 4 and 5, so a lot of their photos are not happy ones. I have been sick this entire past 2 weeks. It seems Memphis weather and my sinuses are not cohabiting well.

Bennett Price seems to be terrorizing Grey and I… he only throws Grey’s favorite dragons, turns the TV off frequently, and takes off up the stairs any time I forgot to put up the gates. I found the new toothbrushes I purchased for the boys in the toilet this past week. BUT I must say that I love every single minute I have with these little ones. We have a lot of fun. This past week Grey was invited to a birthday party at a horse stable and it was a blast. They rode ponies, hit a piñata, and ate candy. What 3 and 4 year old doesn’t love that? Little brother was a bit upset that he wasn’t involved, but don’t think he didn’t find some dirt and horse poop to get into. I also photographed the boys this week on a white seamless backdrop, so that I could make them some Valentine cards. By looking at the photos you would think they were cooperative, BUT THEY WEREN’T! Today Greyson had parent teacher conference at his school, so Bennett Price went to Parent’s Day Out  and Grey and I had a date at a candy store. So fun! It was a great way to end our week.

Tim Jancelewicz - Great stuff E!! FYI that pic of me is right after he hit me in the lip with the handle of that whisk.

Week 3 of 52

This week started off rainy in Memphis, so we played in the playroom a lot and visited the Children’s Museum. The Children’s Museum of Memphis is so much fun for the kiddos, but pretty darn expensive… so we can’t do it all the time. We went this past Monday while is was really ugly outside, so there wasn’t many people there. For anyone who has never gone, it has a huge FedEx plane inside the museum for the kids to climb in and play around with the buttons. I have to admit I was a bit intrigued myself. I had to sit in the pilot seat just once. Bennett Price terrorized all of the kiddos and parents in the “grocery store” section of the museum. He threw everything off of the shelves that he could get his hands on. We had so much fun! Then we visited the zoo. Yep, we go all the time. Greyson has started telling me about the animals. My poor husband has been on-call this past week, so he has been super busy at work and tired when he gets home. My 52 week project is a great way for Tim to experience the boys through my lens. _MG_5917_FB_MG_5836_FB_MG_5864_FB_MG_5782_FB_MG_5899_FB_MG_5904_FB_MG_5649_FB
