The 52 Project 2014: 41/52

the 52 project2“A portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2014. My goal for the year: highlight her most recently acquired and/or favorite skill, activity, or milestone, in hopes to document her blossoming personality and mind as well as her physical appearance. ” See my series HERE.

41 week 2014Holy…..moly…..

I’m like, 11 weeks behind on this portrait project!!!!!! It’s already ended, actually, and week 1 for 2015 has already begun. My 1st trimester knocked me on my ass big time, and I’m still trying to get back into the swing of things. Instead of just forgetting about this project, I decided to complete it since I have a tendency to quit things easily. This may be crazy late, but….get over it.

This was a phone photo (poor quality) that’s actually up on my Instagram feed of Mia attempting to sweep up the backyard. She got some mighty strong cleaning skills from my mom since my mom is an anal cleaning fanatic. Grandma really rubbed off on her during the 2 years Mia was under her care while I worked. And I’m also convinced that the cleaning bug skips generations because I don’t even come close to my mom’s strong need for order and cleanliness. That spirit does pop out of me from time to time, just ask my husband. I can get on his case just as well as my mom did to me, I know she’d be proud :)

Anyways, Mia doesn’t have the sweeping motions down pat just yet, but that doesn’t stop her determination to get the floors clean. Anytime she sees me bust out a broom she says “My turn! My turn!” The same thing goes with cleaning rags and any kind of cleaning spray (relax, I don’t hand chemicals over to my 2 year old). I’m stoked to have such a good little helper around the house.

Okay now just for fun, here is the portrait from last year’s week 41 in 2013 with her “stinker face” in full effect.
