Had a pretty hard time holding her still today. She figured out that when she hears the camera lens click, if she runs over to me, she can see herself on my screen. I’m not sure if she completely understands what is happening, but she seems to be enjoying it.
Love this picture; she is especially happy because she just got to eat a cookie.
If you notice her red eyes it’s obvious she was crying shortly before we took the photo. I believe she had been playing with something she wasn’t supposed to so I took it away. I tried to let her have my scarf to compromise with her, she didn’t seem too interested so I just wrapped it around her. I think she looks pretty stylish; not quite a scarf, not quite a poncho, it’s the baby Sconcho! 😉
I absolutely adore this little outfit. I bought this a while back at Target, it was part of Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku Kids collection. Some of the clothes were a bit questionable, but when I saw this outfit I knew Sofie had to have it! Today was the first time she tried this outfit on, the jumper was a bit short so I had to stick some leggings underneath to keep her legs warm. I also got those sweet little owl shoes at Target as well.
Trying to get caught up on these pictures! I was only a day behind so that’s not so bad right?
Managed to get a pretty good pose out of her today, the lighting was pretty decent too.
It was raining today so we were getting ready to go play at an indoor play yard at the mall in Bellevue. She had a lot of fun running around and climbing, I was hoping she’d be able to expend all of her energy there and be mellow by the time we went home. Lots of bigger kids running around, screaming, yelling… oh, the things I have to look forward to…
Was able to get her to hold still (briefly) to get some good shots on her own. She found the paint brush you see her holding shortly before we took the photos. Sofia kept trying to paint my face with the brush… I guess she takes after me more than I thought!
Even harder to get her to hold still this time. I had to resort to letting her hold a sponge and having Jason keep her still once again. We will get better at this! I wanted to make a note about her outfit too, I think yellow is a great color on her. 🙂
Last Saturday was Sofia’s first birthday, (pictures and posts to come very soon), and with that it got me thinking. Sofia has grown so much this past year, and it all seemed to go by so quickly. What would be a way for me to document her and remember her as she grows? This is how my idea of “Sofia 365” came about.
This is going to be my major project for the year, I realize I’m already behind on posting for a few days, but I will catch up with this post and the subsequent. Yes, the project title is quite literal, I will be taking one photo a day of Sofia for the next year. By the end of this project there will be 365 photos of my daughter, and the perfect way for me to document just how much she has grown, and will continue to grow. I’m sure it will take me a bit to get a swing of things; things like getting her to hold still long enough to snap a photo, matching the lighting, etc., but I’m sure it’ll be just fine. 🙂
As photos begin to collect I will put a link on the blog’s homepage that will go directly to the category “Sofia 365”, that way you can view a day by day snapshot of her growth.
I hope that you can join me on this little venture of mine as I am very much looking forward to it, so with that said, it’s time for me to stop typing and start snapping memories.
