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.
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.
Eek! We’re just a day away from breaking the half-way point! And perfect timing, it’ll be her 18 month birthday tomorrow!
Sofie is just growing up so fast, it’s absolutely crazy. Can’t believe half a year has already gone by since I started this project. We are almost half way through and it’ll be all down hill from here!
Today was a nice slow day at home, neither Jason or I had work, so we just mostly lazed about all day. One exciting thing is that we did get accepted to an apartment up on Capitol Hill, so that’s definitely something to look forward to.
The weather was significantly cooler today, but it was nice to get a little break from the weather.
Despite not doing very much today, Sofie still took a significant nap in the afternoon which allowed me to get a little bit of work done.
Jason’s dad came over and bought us all Chinese for dinner, seems like it was just a take-out weekend, but I don’t mind not cooking…
Here’s the little goof, making faces as usual.
Have a good night ya’ll, see you when we break our half-year mark tomorrow!
