catch the moment 365: week four

Week four is complete and we are almost a month into 2014 and a month into this photo project.  I have to admit, I’ve struggled a bit this week.  It’s been so dark and cold and just gross outside, which can make it a challenge to get decent pics inside.  Also, SURPRISE! I was sick with strep throat and then the flu for this entire week of photos. It was all I could do to remember where my camera was most days.

22/365: January 22nd. I was preparing oven shrimp and thought the colors were so bold.

23/365: January 23rd.  I’m not sure if I ever moved from the couch on Thursday so I had to snap this one while admiring Dexter’s cute blonde curls after the bath. I think he was in the middle of saying “curl” when I took this picture.

24/365: January 24th. And this is what the sink looks like after Ryan has been a single dad for 36 hours during my incapacitation. Luckily I felt well enough to tackle this mess on Friday.  P.S. Props to actual, literal, for real, single parents… I don’t know how you keep up!

25/365: January 25th.  Theo, just lounging around the house on Saturday morning.  I don’t normally let him sit on the arm of the couch, but what the heck?  Shew that hair needs to grow out!
26/365: January 26th. This little prize is what Dexter earned after tolerating a chest x-ray, nasal swab, and throat swab. All to diagnose the flu and a tiny collapse in his right lung.  Yes, he had his flu shot. We all did.  And we all got the flu. Don’t get me started.

27/365: January 27th. Snuggling with dada, still fighting 104+ temps. 

28/365: January 28th.  Roasted Piquillo Pepper Alfredo with meatballs over linguine.
I know I keep saying this, but I really cannot wait for Spring.  Bleh.  I’m feeling very bleh, and very OVER this stupid sickness crap. A whole post is coming on this topic but I haven’t felt like writing lately.  If I have to pick a favorite photo, it’s day 25.  Theo just thinks he’s such a big boy these days and I’m in denial, but the truth is — he’s right.  His 4th birthday is in 5 weeks and 2 days. GAG.
Which photo was your favorite this week?
