I really should give up on trying to count her weeks & correspond that to a calendar or her age….I’m lost! These were all generally taken the first full week of October- right before and after she turned 7 weeks old. I love this silly little expression of hers above- she was just starting to play more with her tongue.
We made our first big adventure out in real public when we went to the Wine & Art Festival in Spring on Sunday. We convinced my parents to come along & we all had a great time together & it was nice having an extra pair of hands.
The festival itself was really disappointing- not much art & really awful wines. My standards are generally pretty low & I was so happy to be “off duty” and able to drink for the afternoon, but I still threw out several glasses & there were a ton of fruit-wines offered (YUCK!).
Overall, we had a great time tough & Eliana did really good most of the time- just sleeping or happily chilling in her car seat.
It was my first week back at work, but I was so thankful to have mom stay with her at our house. She did some tummy time & enjoyed staring at her monkey.
Approaching Halloween, I picked up a few adorable holiday related outfits & baby girl was back to enjoying her RnP again for naps.
She was still sleeping swaddled in a blanket for naps & in a swaddle-sleeper at night. It was great to calm her down if she got too fussy & crazy.
Several of my friends said their kids really enjoyed this infant activity gym with a piano, so I couldn’t resist buying her one too. She loves to kick in general, but still hasn’t figure out it’s her feet making the noise, but she does enjoy staring at herself in the mirror above her.
GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: We survived another night alone with just the girls- even managed a bath & her first bedtime story before going to sleep at 8:30!
September 21 - October 21 I could say I was waiting for her 2 month pediatrician visit to write this & get her official vitals, but I'd be lying. We've just been so busy lately & I'm trying hard to keep up on editing photos & completing my weekly Project Life layouts. I'd say our first … [Read More...]
I've been pretty good so far (all 8 weeks) of taking weekly photos of Ms. E. I've only missed on week (Week 5) b/c I couldn't get the blocks to work out- just like week 7, but I decided to photoshop those. It's not easy timing these- you have to get her in a good mood, during the daylight, and … [Read More...]
Most of these were taken around the first week of October- just before & after Eliana turned 6 weeks old. We've been doing a mix of baths in her little baby tub & a few in the big tub with H or myself. I sneakily asked my mom to come over & help so I could take a few more … [Read More...]
So on my last week at home with E, I grabbed the camrea more & she was totally obliged to pose for me. This is one of my new favorite photos of her & I think I'll have to dedicate a separate post at the end of the year just for favorite photos of Eliana in addition to my usual favorite … [Read More...]
I successfully made it 75% through 2014 while keeping up with my weekly photo spreads for Project Life. Of course, it was much easier before baby arrived! We shall see how these last 3 months go with having a baby, the holidays, and returning back to work! Although we were very busy with baby … [Read More...]
