The culmination of everything I have been working toward for the last year is here.
The reason why I was the “crazy mom” on Facebook that posted pictures of her daughter every day, it all now (hopefully) makes sense.
Living day by day, sometimes it’s hard to notice the changes of your little one growing, but they happen, and they happen faster than you think.
Sometimes you take it for granted, and once that moment is gone, it’s gone; they will never be this small, or sweet or innocent again, so cherish those moments.
All the hours and time I spent on this project with Sofia has been condensed into less than 8 minutes of a beautiful, wonderful, transformation.
Every day, every photo, every frustrating moment, every laugh, and every emotion in between had been captured day by day for an entire year.
After rounding the home stretch this past month, I thought I’d try something different with Sofie’s pictures, and I just ended up waiting.
Maybe to build anticipation, or just laziness on my part, but I held off on posting any of Sofie’s pics from the last month and just waited to compile them and just do a month in review leading up to Sofie’s birthday, and the anniversary of this project. One big bite before dessert.
I know I might sound like a bit of a broken record, but jeez, Sofie has changed so much this year, and even month to month she changes and grows.
Mid February and early march has been full of a lot of work, adventures, chapstick and lipgloss (much of it on Sofie’s face.)
Living with an almost-Two year old child the past month has given me it’s fair share of challenges and frustrations, she’s more demanding and moody, but also more playful, and she’s been growing into her own little “person”. It’s been awesome to watch and be a part of that growth.
I’m saving her very last photo from this project for it’s own post. Her birthday was a certain success, and I can’t wait to share all of our adventures from the weekend.
In the mean time, check out set of photos from the past month leading up to the very, very end. I was also very excited to get my camera back from the repair shop (or at least part of it) so that I could finish off my project with the same “quality” equipment that I started it with. Boy, did I miss my camera…
Anywho… What a month it’s been! Do you have a favorite image from the set? I sure do. 🙂
