I got busy last week and couldn’t get Week 2 out last Friday so I’m combining them this week.
This was another unplanned image, you big girls just couldn’t help but jump in with your baby sister while we were taking Hero’s 6 month photos… a few days shy of 7 months. Oops.
My Juliet (on the right) is obsessed with these stupid looms! I’m finding rubber bands all over my house.
First ballet class. <3
Seahawk fever, y’all!
A long time ago my friend Shalonda Chaddock took a similar photo of her daughter while they were grocery shopping. It’s always spoke to the momma in me and I decided to recreate it when we went grocery shopping the other day, which happened to be perfect since Ophelia serendipitously wore her favorite princess dress.
Ophelia looooooooooves Lambie. Loves loves loves LOVES her Lambie. Hermione is becoming attached to her very own “Raffie.” Ophelia frequently remembers to make sure it is close by for her. I love that she puts this significance on it even though Hero probably doesn’t really care that much at this point. Something about the empathy of “I would be sad if Lambie wasn’t here.”
We’ve been taking ballet classes at Twirl and yesterday Ophelia and her friend decided to play a cute little 20 questions type game after class.
Oh, Ophelia. You try me in ways I never thought possible. Sometimes it seems you defy gravity with your antics and mischief. But sometimes you are calm and still and sharing blueberries with your imaginary friend, Ariel.
I love looking back on these and find myself doing it several times a week. I thought this project was going to be stressful, but instead I quite enjoy it and am finding that it is changing the way I view my days. It is so easy for me to get lost in the monotony of every day moments and to forget the beauty that is also there. This project is forcing me to see the photographs in my every day and I am so thankful for this gift.
