Tuesday was a nice day off after a long day on the road. After taking Sofie to a quick doctor’s appointment in the morning, (she is in the 98th percentile for height for her age!), and after having to take 4 shots (poor baby) we headed back home for the rest of the day to take it easy.
Sofie was a pretty good trooper despite being poked and prodded all morning, she hardly cried after her shots but took a pretty solid nap in the afternoon.
I had gotten some ice out to help soothe some of my mosquito bites from the day before, and she had taken them from me when I got up to take her photo.
Monday was my first day on set for a photo shoot series with a local photographer. We were expected to be gone all day so Sofie went over to her Grandma’s house for the day.
As for me, after gathering at a parking lot in Redmond to carpool, myself, model, photographer, assistant, and wardrobe stylists all hopped into a super cool production RV and drove out to the middle of nowhere to do a very awesome fashion-y photo shoot with really expensive clothes and accessories.
We ended up being out there a little longer than planned, so I got home a bit late, and pretty bitten up by mosquitoes, but in good spirits otherwise.
After I came back to pick up Sofie, we gave her a bath, and she fell asleep on the ride home. I had hoped to try to get a picture once I got back, but she was totally zonked out, so I just got a picture of her sleeping instead. How peaceful, right?
Sunday, we took another trip down to the local farmers market to get some fresh fruits, veggies and general yummy food. Sofie had another great time seeing lots of dog dogs and eating up the samples of awesome local foods.
After the market we went home to eat all of the deliciousness we bought and had a nice quiet (as quiet as you can get with a baby) evening at home.
As always, Sofie was being a little goof for her photos. I threw in a little extra action shot of her since it was so good. 🙂
After weeks of running around and losing track of time it was nice to have some quality time with Sofie. We went out to the park to play for a few hours, then treated ourselves to some delicious ice cream before heading back home.
Even with it being an uneventful day, I still managed to get distracted enough to (almost) forget Sofie’s picture.
After getting her a bottle and lying down for bed, I shot up realizing what I had forgotten. Sofie was still wide awake, luckily, so we got up quickly to snap a few shots before turning in for the night.
Yesterday was another day of little errands with Sofie. It’s so nice having pretty much everything I need within walking distance. All I have to do is walk out the door, stick Sofie in a stroller, and wham, we’re there! Grocery store, park, shopping… it’s pretty sweet.
Sofia has had so much energy lately, she’s been staying up a little later than I’d like, might have to start cutting down on her naps…
I also have a little something extra today. Sofie’s current favorite song is “Gangnam Style” by Psy, she can’t help but dance to it when she hears it – so I made a little video of her dancing the other day. It’s soo adorable. You can watch it down below. Enjoy!
Welp, it feels great to be all caught up.
It’s time I started getting back into the routine again… I still have a lot of organizing to do, but now that the busy Summer season has past, I will have much more time to focus on what I have been slacking on.
Speaking of slacking… today was a bit of a lazy day, but I think a much deserved one. With all the running around I’ve been doing the past few weeks I have been so exhausted! Sofia and I spent the whole day inside just tinkering and playing, it was nice to have a lazy day with her though, and I think she would agree.
We read books and practiced words, she’s getting very good at imitating my sounds and small phrases. Pretty soon, she’ll be talking in whole sentences!
Here she is, right after waking up from her (very long) afternoon nap; but thanks to her (very long) afternoon nap, I was able to catch up on all of my picture posts, so hooray for that!
