Tomorrow's the big day!

So tomorrow is August 1st, and I'll be starting my project of posting a picture a day!!

I thought, since my "subject" is of course, my son, that I'd catch up any new readers (har har) to Zane's life.

Without further ado, I present Zane, from birth to 10 months. :)

A couple of hours old...

3 days old...

4 weeks old...

2.5 months old

3 months at Christmas

4 months

5 months

6 months

7 months

8 months

9 months

10 months - these were taken just the other day!

He's growing up so fast. :(

Sorry I haven't been posting - My best friend is visiting from Europe, so I haven't really had the time to post!

I'm sooo excited for the 1st - getting close now!

I figured out my flash drive! All is well in the world... at least on the camera front.

Zane channels Linus van Pelt pretty well, wouldn't you say?

Oh, snap!

I totally told Carissa I'd do this!

Well, clearly to start off - I did NOT totally forget about my very first NOT ME MONDAY post. Such a clear thinker such as myself would never forget an important milestone such as this.

I also did NOT choose to skip folding laundry for the 5th day in a row, leaving 2 piles of clean laundry in the laundry room, even though the time to do more laundry is fast approaching -- NOT ME!

I certainly did NOT read blogs instead of walking the dog this morning while Zane was napping. That would have been inconsiderate of me - something I'd never do - NOT ME!

and lastly, i did NOT fall asleep while rocking Zane to sleep this afternoon. I am always fresh and peppy throughout the day, and never need naps myself! NOT ME!

Hooray, I made my first NOT ME monday post - with 12 minutes to spare! I think come August 1st, provided I get my camera issues straightened out, I'm going to make Not Me Monday a tradition... with a picture of Zane doing something totally NOT ME worthy. Not that he EVER gets into trouble, not my precious child... ;)

technical difficulties.

I'm having some issues with cameras of late. First, my handy camera that has been so good to me for 2 years just stopped working after it fell to the floor (it wasn't a hard fall and it was on carpet, so I'm not ENTIRELY sure what happened there). The camera "works"; it takes pictures, but the screen doesn't communicate with the lens. I can take a picture and it ACTS like it works, but the pictures show up blank.

My sister was a doll, and gave me her camera, but this one is also a bust; the flash doesn't work, and any picture I take indoors comes out dark or blurry.

So just this past weekend, some friends of ours offered the use of one of their old cameras. "Jackpot!" I think. I take a few pictures today and they come out adorable - Zane is channeling Linus and clutching his blue blanky in his mouth. But when I go to plug in the flash drive to the computer, it seems it doesn't recognize that the memory card is in it. I can't download those pictures to my computer, either.

I can't win for losing! I really hope I can get this all resolved by August 1st. I would hate to not be able to start this project with the rest of the ladies simply because of some technical difficulties!

I'll leave you with a picture though... just messing around on :)

Just playing around with my templates and settings...

I love the header, don't you? He's grown up too fast already.

Cross your fingers...

... that I can keep this going!

My goal is to post one picture a day, for 365 days. My pregnancy blog didn't quite work out the way I wanted (I stopped at 8 weeks... way to go, me!) so I hope to keep this one going for, well... a year, at least.

Watch in awe as my little monkey man grows up, day by day.

Thanks Melissa for the idea! :)

Carissa, I know you're excited for this development.

I'll be starting August 1st, but I think I'll be playing around with it until then.
