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 when somebody is around to catch her & the blocks when she knocks them over. I do love capturing all her adorable expressions- she’s got so many great ones.
I”ll warn you that I got a big carried away with the Week 6 photos. She was just sitting to pretty & so happy that I couldn’t stop snapping away.
A big yawn and lots of derp faces, she’s always moving her mouth, eyes, and eyebrows to create silly faces.
She gives me tons of what I call “Yoda faces” where she looks like a grumpy old man & she was just starting to play more with her tongue this week.
The eyebrows kill me the most- when the raises them or furrows them, I crack up every time.
It was around this week too that she seemed to be getting a lot longer- noticeably bigger in her carriers and swing.
We didn’t get too many of the Week 7 photos & I had to photoshop over the number on the other block, but there are some pretty hysterical faces.
I caught her on a good day for Week 8 photos, albeit 2 days late & we initially had the 8 block upside down!
Eliana’s eyes were really open & alert, watching me & H the whole time we were taking pictures.
One of my favorites of all time!
I’ve really been struggling with editing all these photos- getting the skin tones and grays all the same and matching white balance, but I signed up for an editing lesson with a blogger I really admire & I can’t wait to get better at post-processing on all these so they look more similar.
I’m having tons of fun taking these so far- guess I’m in it for another 44 weeks! (plus our monthly photos!) It’s already fun to look back to her first few weeks & see how much she’s already changed.
GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: Got a busy, exciting week lined up & I can’t wait to dive in & make it to Sunday.

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...]
So, what feels like a million years ago, when I was pregnant & researching all things baby, Husband decided he wanted to cloth diaper. I was interested in it & I think I just caught him committing to it on a good day, before he fully realized what he was in for by doing cloth diapers. … [Read More...]
So...we're a family. We generally travel in a pack. Thus, Mia follows us around. So while we were taking Eliana's photos in her room, Mia was living it up & rolling around on the ground with one of her bones. She's still only slightly interested in Eliana- sometimes she will go and sniff … [Read More...]
