366 project

Well, I’m doing pretty well on the Photo A Day project. I didn’t miss any days in January or February, but did miss 2 days in march when Jackson was sick.

My freezer drawer contains only baby food and vodka. Coincidence?

Jackson is pretty excited about riding on Mike’s shoulder!

 I liked how the crane was reflected in the water in the morning.  Though I wish I wasn’t up so early in the first place!

Construction on the bridge has stopped for the Chinese New Year holiday. Everything in China grinds to a halt over CNY except the transportation system. This is the largest human migration in the world when everyone goes home over the holiday.

This is the most neglected member of the family. Poor Boots. She used to be the only ‘child’ that got all of the attention.

My baby’s first tooth broke the skin today! So I got out my DSLR to snap some photos of that toothless grin before he is no longer toothless.

Fabric at the fabric market.

Almost up on his hands and knees!

One of the Chinese characters for ‘man’ is the character for ‘field’ above the character for ‘power’.

Man = field power. Awesome.

I played the punk at an 80’s murder mystery party. Happy birthday’s Claire and Casey!

Today at Starbucks, I looked up at the ceiling of the grocery store next to us. It had been painted with a roller and about 1/4 of the amount of paint that was needed to cover the ceiling properly. Ah, China.

Jackson attempting to get a Cheerio into his mouth. He was successful! Also successful at gumming it and eating it.

Oysters are pretty gross looking, and my iPhone certainly didnt do them any favors

So here’s my other photo today, of my clingy, drooly baby who I expect to sprout teeth any minute.

My Chinese teacher Dongdong and the first three Chinese sentences I could read all by myself!

Chenchen came over to visit Jackson today. He was a little more enthused about her than she was about him!

4/366 – the Post Office

This is the room where I pick up packages above the post office. First, I go to the post office with the slip I’ve received in my mailbox, and the guy points up to tell me to go to the second floor.

I go out and around the building, in a little alley, and carry Jackson’s stroller up a few stairs into the back entrance of a building. I show the paper to the elevator lady and she tells me 2nd floor and pushes the button for me.

On the second floor is the standard dingy whitewashed walls, dirty floors, men smoking and what seems to be random rooms. It’s so weird. I walk back a ways, show my paper to a smoking guy with a China Post uniform on, and he hollers at someone else who apparently can speak English to me (but only says ‘name’, hands me a pen and points to the place on my paper where I need to sign for the package.) The big empty room has a little locked cabinet that contains my package.

I really wonder why my little packages usually come to this back room and not the main area of the Post Office. (My package was a photo book that I ordered from ArtsCows.com, in case you were wondering.)

After seeing that my friend Erica took the leap and committed to doing the photo-a-day challenge this year, I decided that I could do it too! Except I’m just going to do it via Instagram and my iPhone. I think I can manage that. It’s a leap year so it’s 366 days of photos.
