donyaluana Just over a month to his second birthday, he all of a sudden hates nap/bed times, loves playing rough with Ephram, refuses to sit in his highchair, & tells me diapers are for babies. If only that meant he'd potty train. But he has the sweetest, most polite, little heart. & he loves to eat. 6h

  •   amandafelber Oh to be a normal person.... Great shot btw. How do you get a clear shot of what's in your mug without shadows getting in the way?? I want to do that but never get it right. 😕 13h
  •   donyaluana #fmsphotoaday in my cup. 8h
  •   donyaluana @amandafelber I think in this case it was bc it was early in the morning, the light was filling the room and reflecting off the ceiling and walls. 8h

donyaluana Master of the pout lip. 4d
  •   analogpaper Ha! I was wondering if you caved... That face must have been hard to resist 4d
  •   flutterby_33 More importantly...what was dessert? ;) 4d
  •   donyaluana @flutterby_33 ice cream cookie sandwich. 4d
  •   kristymakes I am immune to the pouty lip, my oldest uses it far to often on his nana with success. He's a master manipulator. 4d
  •   donna_gibson Hubby used to tell the pouting kids to watch it or a bird would sit on their lip. I never understood that. 4d
  •   andreacollects haha, my boyfriend says, I'm the master of pout lips. But he's pretty good as well. 4d
  •   taryn_too Why must you deny him joy in life... cutest face ever! 4d

donyaluana Home from Meet the Teacher for Ephram's preschool and I'm pretty sure Alwyn thinks it's him who is starting school next week instead, not big brother. How is he almost two?! 5d

donyaluana Five minutes of journaling each morning has been super helpful in getting more stories into my #ProjectLife pages lately. Sharing week 32 #ontheblog today. 7d
  •   andreacollects I like that journaling idea. And beautiful spread 7d
  •   40eighteen I think I could even find 5 minutes every morning. What a great idea! 7d
  •   paintpaperstudio I like that idea 7d
  •   bigcityquiet Looks amazing! 7d
  •   carolchastain05 Yes, you totally have to set aside the TIME to write, or pray, or anything you want to do! Stop,drop,and write!inspired as always! :) 7d
  •   scatteredconfetti Looks great! 7d
  •   paperbeauty Since I had my second baby three months ago my time for journaling has drastically decreased, yet these are the times I want to remember more than ever! I started making myself do some simplified journalling through lists; once a week I force myself to make a "currently" list with five items. And each month I do a list of "five things about..." For each of my kids. And each day when we were on vacation I did "five things about our vacation today". It works! It's quick and easy and at least I'm writing SOMETHING down! 6d
  •   donyaluana @paperbeauty that's awesome! As long as it's something, right? Lately mine are very short and sweet entries. 6d

donyaluana So excited for @aliedwards and her new site/direction. I broke up with scrapbooking after college but my love for photos and stories never went away and I continued to follow Ali's blog. It was her who brought me back to scrapbooking in 2012 and introduced me to #projectlife. She is such an inspiration. Go visit her amazing new site! #craftthestory 2w
  •   beckyhigginsllc We are so glad you're back Donya! 2w
