Sofia 365: Day 187

Day 187: 9.14.12

Yikes, I just realized that as of today, I’m 2 weeks behind! It’s just been a summer of procrastination, but I PROMISE fall will be different!

I’m sure you all want to see those Sofie pictures, so I need to start busting out these posts. This is our last moving weekend and we will be getting all the loose ends tied so we can start settling back into a routine, so I will have no excuse! Man, this month just flew by.

Two Friday’s ago, Sofie was still spending time at my parent’s house while we slowly but surely began the transition to our new apartment at the start of the weekend.
Looks like Sofie had another day exploring with her new finger puppets, she really seems into them doesn’t she?

Day 186: 9.13.12

Holy Crap. The sooner I can get these pictures posted, the better I will feel! It’s just been such a wild few weeks, there’s still much work to be done…

Anyhow, let’s recap…

Thursday, Sofie spent another day at my parent’s house and I spent another day organizing and doing moving prep.

My grandma had spent some time living in Ecuador this summer so sent Sofie a set of finger puppets from there. By the pictures, it looked like she really enjoyed playing with them!

Sofia 365: Day 185

Day 185: 9.12.12

Wow, it’s been another busy few weeks. I’ve got some catching up to do (yet again, and again). What with moving and settling in to our new apartment, it’s all just a blur to me. We’re finally starting to get somewhat settled down, which is great, but we still have quite a bit of organizing to do… Not to mention painting and cleaning our old apartment, the next week or so is still going to be super busy!
Last Wednesday, we had just signed the lease on our new apartment and Sofie had gone over to my parent’s the day before so it was time we started packing and getting organized for our move while Sofie was away.

Sofia 365: Day 184

Day 184: 9.11.12

Tuesday was a fun and busy day. My parents had another appointment in Seattle and my friend Autumn was having her birthday party that night. I also had leasing paperwork and keys to pick up for the new apartment!
So that morning after I woke up I got ready to go then started packing up things since Sofie was going to be staying with my parents since Jason and I had a birthday party to go to. After Sofie and I met up with my parents we went down to get some lunch before parting ways.
Once my parents left to the ferry with Sofie I headed to meet up with a friend, Anna,  for a little pampering and relaxation and got an awesome facial and massage (my first ever!). It was a nice little detox before heading out for the night to drink and be merry.

It was a fun night and great catching up with friends, just another reason to be excited about moving back to Seattle! We have friends everywhere, and in such close proximity! That’s definitely one of the things I’ve really missed this last year.

I also just realized, since we’ll be moving the majority of our stuff this weekend, this may be one of the last photos we take of Sofie in the old apartment. What a weird feeling! Half a year accomplished with her and this project; now we’re transitioning to a new place for a fresh start for the rest of the year.

Sofie was playing with my accessories in the morning as I got ready so I decided to finally do something with her hair. Not quite sure if it was a super “stylish” choice, but heck, you could put a pair of swirly horns on her head and she’d still look adorable.

Baby Hair.

Sofia 365: Day 183

Day 183: 9.10.12

Wow, it ended up being another bit of a busy day today. Mostly organizing paper work and preparing to sign a lease on our new apartment, which I’m getting very excited about! Sofie, Jason and I all went back to the apartment today to give it one last once-over before making our final decision on it; it’ll be a smaller space than we have now, but since we are taking an apartment manager position in the building, the money we’ll be saving will be worth it. Sofie definitely seemed to like it, she couldn’t stop running around and sliding on the hardwood floors.

We’ll be back in our old neighborhood and close to everything, I can actually walk to places again and live close to my friends! It’ll be great.

And not to mention! Here we are: the year and a half mark.

I can’t believe Sofia is already a year and a half, she has grown up so fast, and I have the pictures to prove it!
Aside from the stand-alone picture of the day I also edited one  with a side by side from day 1 to today.

When you’re posting pictures day by day, sometimes you don’t realize the gradual change, but  to have those two images right in front of me is just another solid reminder of how quickly she’s developing, and learning. She’s getting smarter and cuter by the day.

It’s been a crazy 6 months, heck, a crazy 18 months! Now, here’s to another 6 months ahead (And then she’ll be TWO, what in the world!)!

I know it’s going to fly by fast, and I hope you all can stick around and join me for the next half. It’s been quite the journey and quite the project, but I’m glad that I decided to do this and stick with it.

Well then, until tomorrow! Have a great night everyone.
