Hopefully Sofie will stay napping while I wrap up with these posts!
I had to go up to Everett to meet a bride for a trial session on Thursday so Sofie went over to her other grandma’s house for the afternoon. It was over at my friend Hannah’s house who owns her own beauty company as well, we had two trials happening at the same time, so it was a pretty fun experience. I was actually pretty proud of the work I did, and I can’t wait for the wedding!
After getting home I had almost forgot to take Sofie’s photos again, and she wasn’t being all too cooperative either. I had let her play with these holographic dog cards and she has been obsessed with looking at them since. I think it’s cool to her (or maybe just trippy) that the pictures move. I was trying to lure her over to the wall with the cards but only succeeded in having her hold still if she kissed the picture of the dog on the card.
So there you have it, all you can see is Sofie’s bright blue eyes!
My mom was excited because she had wanted Sofie to wear this outfit for a while (and it’s adorable!), but was worried she would get too big for it before the weather was nice enough! For a while it seemed like the sun would never come out this summer… glad it finally decided to! (Also glad it’s not 234923857 degrees like in some other parts of the country!) I’m using a lot of exclamation points!
Left my parents house with Sofie in the early afternoon, Jason was glad to have the whole family back home.
Took these photos before leaving, Sofie wanted to put her sun hat on, she also wanted her doggy backpack/leash in the picture. I mean, look at that face, who could say no to that!
Spent another day at my parents house on Tuesday, I also got a chance to catch up with my bestest friend, Katie, as she was also in town with family.
I was so excited to see her and catch up, we’ve known each other for ages, but with school and work, plus living in different cities, we haven’t had a chance to see each other much the past few years. We spent a nice afternoon chatting and went down to the Poulsbo waterfront to get some yummy crepes and cider. My mouth is watering just thinking about them… Nutella crepes are probably one of the best gastronomical inventions ever.
After spending the early evening at Katie’s family’s house for dinner, I headed home to spend a little time with Sofie before passing out in bed.
I snapped this shot of Sofia before heading out for the day, she had gotten into my hair accessories so I put a little clip in her hair. She looked so cute with it on, look at those chubby cheeks!
I had a short job on Monday doing makeup for a portrait session in Seattle, and afterwards headed down to my parents house to get Sofie and stay the night there.
The weather was a little gloomier and not so sunny out, but it was so humid it hardly made any difference… to my hair.
I got to my parents house just in time for dinner, I was so excited to see Sofie, but I was also pretty hungry!
Last Sunday was another busy work day, not only did I have a wedding in the morning, but I was also meeting with a bride for a trial session in the afternoon!
After working hard and playing hard all weekend, all I wanted to do Sunday night was just crash and sleep. A quiet night at home was exactly what I needed.
Looked like Sofie had another good day with my parents; I know they had bought her a little mini pool, not sure if they had used it, but the weather was certainly opportune!
I love her little mismatched outfit, stripes and polka dots, classic!
Yikes! It’s been over a week since I posted last. Time to blast through these photos and catch up to the present!
Sofie was over at my parent’s house all last weekend as I was working, and also spending my evenings enjoying some time at the Capitol Hill Block Party with Jason.
Saturday was a beautiful day out, wish I was able to spend some more time outside, but after having a bit of a stressful morning doing hair and makeup for a wedding it was nice to unwind a bit and enjoy my night out with Jason and some good friends. Heard some good music, caught up with old friends, and got quite a good amount of socializing in, which rarely happens in this household!
Sofie was reportedly causing a little trouble at my parent’s house, not wanting to pose for photos and what not, but I still think they got a pretty decent one. What a colorful shirt!
Today I met with my mom downtown to drop Sofie off with her for the weekend. I have another busy weekend of work and also hoping for a bit of fun and relaxation at the Capitol Hill Block Party. Work hard all day, then play at night!
My mom, Sofie and I went out for lunch at the Cheesecake Factory, we were stuffed full of food, and did a little shopping downtown.
Afterwards I dropped my mom and Sofie off at the ferry and headed home to eat dinner and get ready to head out for some music with Jason.
Here’s Sofie’s photo from this morning before we headed out, she had gotten into my mail and was attracted to the pink shiny envelope, of course.
I heard on the radio that Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis were going to be in town to promote their new movie The Campaign. The rumor was that they’d be at a coffee shop in Pike Place Market to serve coffee for a short time in the afternoon.
I thought it might be a cool thing to check out with Sofie, so decided that I’d take her out that afternoon to Seattle. The weather had cleared at that point and it was actually pretty nice out. I walked down from my beauty studio with an acquaintance from my film projects that actually lives in the building as well. By the time we got to the market it was packed! There was no chance of getting through the crowds to see anything, it was so hot, I actually saw somebody faint. Sofie wasn’t a fan of the crowds either, she was pretty upset so we got out before the celebs even arrived.
I was hoping to catch even a glimpse, but the only hint of their arrival and departure were cheers from the crowd. Apparently they didn’t even stay to serve coffee like it was said, they breezed in and out within a few minutes.
Well, in the very least, it was a nice day for a walk…
Here’s Sofie’s photo from after we went home, cool drinks and food in her belly, and much happier.
And another week gone by, just like that! Now it’s time to catch up on photos again.
Wednesday I had a few trial runs at my beauty studio in the afternoon so Sofie went over to her Grandma’s house for the latter half of the day.
Snapped this photo of her before we headed out, she wanted to make sure her blankie got a photo op. 🙂
Besides some Target shopping this afternoon, it was a pretty average day in the household.
I had a few groceries as well as some items I wanted to pick up for the studio so after Sofie’s afternoon nap we headed over to Target to do a little shopping… Sofie is probably the friendliest, most talkative little baby I’ve ever met. Even before we got into the store she was yelling “bah, bah!”, and pointing at the big red Target “balls” sitting outside of the store. She tried climbing on one, “No, Sofie, we have to go into the store”.
She never sits still in the cart, she likes to stand up and wave at people, she yells “Hi! Hi! Hi!” as they walk by. Young, old, man, woman, black, brown, white, dog, if you have a pulse, it’s most likely she’ll tell you “Hi!”.
Every time we push the cart by the music section she starts “singing” loudly and dancing on the cart, at this point I’m not even embarrassed, I’m kind of impressed and awed by the fact that she is completely oblivious to everybody watching her. She doesn’t care that she’s drawing attention, she doesn’t even notice, she’s just a baby, after all.
We go into the grocery section and she starts yelling out names of fruits and vegetables she knows, “Nana!” at the bananas, “Booberry” for the blueberries. She wants those blue berries, she wants them bad. And heck, she’s a smart kid, if she wants to name fruits and veggies, she can go right on ahead.
It’s incredible how distracting she can be, I wasn’t even tired or feeling spacey, but the minute she starts talking at me she doesn’t stop, I probably spent a half hour longer in that store than I needed to… going back and forth through the store, trying to remember what I came in to buy… and she talked the whole way through, even at the check out counter she was talking up the teller. “Booberry” this, “Mama!” that… I think Sofie is certainly deserving of the “Friendliest Baby” award, she’s so outgoing, I wonder if it’s something she’ll outgrow?
