Sofia 365: Day 180

Day 180: 9.7.12

Friday was yet another warm day. I spent most of the morning continuing our apartment search although we had already put an application in on a place. I made an appointment to see another apartment later that day.

So, that afternoon I dropped Sofie off at her grandma’s and I headed to meet Jason after work to see the apartment, which ended up being quite spacious and nice, but we’re not sure if it’ll work.
It looked like Sofie had a good afternoon swimming in the kiddie pool; although it wasn’t the pool in our complex, she still got to cool down and have fun, lucky her.

Here she is – stylin’ in her summer romper.

Sofia 365: Day 179

Day 179: 9.6.12

Ack, it seems I can’t seem to stay caught up! I need to develop better posting habits.
Thursday was a fairly quiet day at home, as far as I can remember. It was also very hot.

Because it was so hot, I decided that it would be a good day to take Sofie down to the pool in our complex, because we have only been out there once, and it was an opportune time.

Kids were back in school so no splashing or noise, it was the middle of the day on a Thursday so most people would be working, it was going to be perfect!

So, I gather Sofie up, get towels, get her in her swimsuit, grab some sunscreen, get in my swimsuit pack up snacks and juice and head down to the pool. Lo and behold, it’s closed for a photo shoot.

What the heck? The one day I actually make an effort and it backfires on me!

Oh well, so Sofie and I trekked all the way back home, both of us bummed, and still no way to cool down.
It ended up being fine though, we just hung out in the house and tried our best to stay cool.

Here’s Sofie’s photo of the day – she looks a bit shocked, not quite sure by what, but I think it’s a funny photo. Her expression and body language is priceless!


Shock Baby.

Sofia 365: Day 123

Day 123: 7.11.12


Last post and I’ll be all caught up!

Yesterday was so hot out! We tried keeping cool in the house for the majority of the day, but I ended up taking Sofie out to get some pool/swimming gear so I could finally take her to the pool that afternoon/evening.

Sofie was all ready and adorable in her swimming gear and vest, she was also rocking a cute swim suit courtesy of my mom.
She didn’t really take to the water at first, but by the end I had her splashing around and having fun. ¬†She was all puffed up in her little swimming/life vest, it was cute; it’ll still be a long while before I’ll let her swim on her own, but it was a good start!
