What a long weekend! Now it’s time to catch up on photos again, it’s starting to become a bit of a bad habit of mine. Another week gone by again…
Last Thursday was a long day of chores for me.
Sofie had gone to my parent’s house and I had all day to do chores and work that I had been putting off for ages. I cleaned the bathroom until it was sparkling – made a mental note to never let it get that nasty again – cleaned some of the kitchen, mopped, dusted, and organized. All before I had to head to Seattle to meet a bride for a trial session.
I hadn’t felt so efficient in ages.
Besides the whole missing Sofie thing, I did have a pretty good day, and felt pretty accomplished.
What a little straight face.
1 more month and summer will be pretty much over. How crazy does that seem?
Wednesday my parents came into town, and as it was convenient they took Sofie back to stay with them for the rest of the week. I have a bit of a slammed schedule this weekend and although I would have preferred her to stay with me, it just made sense that she’d get more attention over there. I actually have a wedding to do over on my parent’s side this coming Sunday so it worked out pretty perfectly.
I did miss her this week though, it’s definitely always going to be a weird feeling not waking up with her in the morning, no matter how many times I do it.
Took this picture before taking her in to meet my parents on Wednesday.
It looks like she’s sporting an innocent smile, but unbeknownst to most, she was actually signalling that she needed to go “potty”. 😉
And another week gone by, just like that! Summer is flying by at a pace that I just can’t keep up with!
No where were we?
Catching up with a couple photos tonight. I’m getting so bad at updating!
Tuesday was a fairly plain day, the weather started warming up again. Sofia and I actually spent a little time playing outside around the complex. She had fun running around, she didn’t want to go back home. I eventually was able to lure her home for a nap, the sun can really suck the energy out of you sometimes. 😉
Overall, a fairly good day. I love seeing her excitement every time we go outside. Hope she doesn’t turn out to be too much of an outdoorsy type, I’ll be totally out of my zone!
Anyways, here’s her photo from Tuesday, she got this new book from my parent’s house. It’s filled with pictures of dogs, she can’t read it, obviously, but she likes to pretend she can. 🙂
Just another slow and lazy day at the homestead yesterday. It was actually a bit chilly when we woke up, I don’t remember the sun coming out all that much. I don’t really remember doing all that much either, haha.
I was just one of those days; I feel like it’s been “one of those days” a lot lately. Must be something in the water…
Don’t know why Sofie’s feet are way more in focus than her face, oh well, she’s looking serious again… staring off into the distance (more like the tv).
Sunday was a rare day off for me (for a weekend anyways). Aside from a few errands and grocery shopping in the afternoon, it was a fairly lazy day. It was a bit hot out, but we didn’t spend much time outside.
I did some laundry.
Not that exciting…
Well, Sofie found Jason’s sunglasses and was trying to put them on. Except she had them upside down… made for a funny picture though. Threw in an extra one again too, cracks me up!
I hope everybody had a great weekend! I can’t believe July is already over…
Where has this summer gone?
Anyhow, Saturday I had an unexpectedly long work day; but it was okay. What was only supposed to be a couple hour job turned into a bit longer, but oh well, I get paid and that’s all that matters.
Sofie spent most of the day at her grandma’s house, but I picked her up later in the afternoon.
We were invited to a bbq with a few other makeup artists/hairstylists so went by to hang out for a few hours. There were other kids there, although a bit older, and Sofie had a chance to be in a social setting with people she didn’t know. I think it’s good for her to be able to expand her comfort zone and be in new environments.
It was a fun night, good socializing, making new friends and just getting out of the house in general. We even made some s’mores, and we know how much Sofie loves s’mores. 🙂
Her little picture though is a bit serious, she was being a bit of a grouch all afternoon, but definitely was happier by bbq time.
Yay! We’re all caught up again. It’s a good feeling.
Yesterday (Friday) was a lazy day. After all the working and running around I ‘d done the past week I just wanted a day to stay in my sweats, not worry about looking presentable or putting my makeup on. Did do a little laundry though, and spent most of the day rolling around on the floor with Sofie… Yes, really, I would say 50% of the day was spent on the floor in some form or another.
I’d gotten a little too lazy and almost forgot to take Sofie’s picture again, remembered after dinner though and was able to get a few good shots. We decked her out in beads and she also wanted to have her shoes for the photo. I thought she looked pretty fly.
Threw in an extra one today too, it’s a bit blurry, but her face is pretty fantastic.
Hopefully Sofie will stay napping while I wrap up with these posts!
I had to go up to Everett to meet a bride for a trial session on Thursday so Sofie went over to her other grandma’s house for the afternoon. It was over at my friend Hannah’s house who owns her own beauty company as well, we had two trials happening at the same time, so it was a pretty fun experience. I was actually pretty proud of the work I did, and I can’t wait for the wedding!
After getting home I had almost forgot to take Sofie’s photos again, and she wasn’t being all too cooperative either. I had let her play with these holographic dog cards and she has been obsessed with looking at them since. I think it’s cool to her (or maybe just trippy) that the pictures move. I was trying to lure her over to the wall with the cards but only succeeded in having her hold still if she kissed the picture of the dog on the card.
So there you have it, all you can see is Sofie’s bright blue eyes!
My mom was excited because she had wanted Sofie to wear this outfit for a while (and it’s adorable!), but was worried she would get too big for it before the weather was nice enough! For a while it seemed like the sun would never come out this summer… glad it finally decided to! (Also glad it’s not 234923857 degrees like in some other parts of the country!) I’m using a lot of exclamation points!
Left my parents house with Sofie in the early afternoon, Jason was glad to have the whole family back home.
Took these photos before leaving, Sofie wanted to put her sun hat on, she also wanted her doggy backpack/leash in the picture. I mean, look at that face, who could say no to that!
Spent another day at my parents house on Tuesday, I also got a chance to catch up with my bestest friend, Katie, as she was also in town with family.
I was so excited to see her and catch up, we’ve known each other for ages, but with school and work, plus living in different cities, we haven’t had a chance to see each other much the past few years. We spent a nice afternoon chatting and went down to the Poulsbo waterfront to get some yummy crepes and cider. My mouth is watering just thinking about them… Nutella crepes are probably one of the best gastronomical inventions ever.
After spending the early evening at Katie’s family’s house for dinner, I headed home to spend a little time with Sofie before passing out in bed.
I snapped this shot of Sofia before heading out for the day, she had gotten into my hair accessories so I put a little clip in her hair. She looked so cute with it on, look at those chubby cheeks!
