365 Love Letters Week 16

Ugh! I love my baby so much. Every day in these love letters I get writers block and can only think of saying what I tell her every day several times a day “I love you I love you I love you!” I know she loves me too and sometimes that’s what gets me through the day.

I tried to be more creative this week with taking photos. I took some indoors, some outdoors, and played around with the editing more this week. I’ve been processing these differently. I used to take [dozens, then choose] a photo a day and write and edit it that night. But lately I’ve been taking the [dozens of] photos each day, and choosing a daily favorite at the end of the week, then writing them all together. This next week I’m going to try to go back to the old way and upload them each day on my facebook page each night. There’s something special about completing one each day.

My favorite this week is probably Day 112. By habit I’m normally trying to get her whole little body in frame but with this shot I zoomed in to get her little hand going for a dandelion and I loved the way it came out. I took two quick shots and the one before you can see more of her hat, but I liked this one more, which focused more on her hand. My advice to her came naturally after editing this photo.
Thanks again for letting me share these with you. There’s another Etsy find and giveaway at the end of this post! 🙂 Happy Easter! From me and my little bunny. PS: 3 photos don’t seem to be appearing via some browsers. I’ll try to fox it in the morning but I promise all 7 are here! 🙂

Precious! Number 109 is my fave… so ladylike and fierce at the same time…awesome!

Flat Nipples says:

These are all awesome! Day 112 and 109 are my favs, I love the way you tell a story. Do you think of the caption the photograph or the other way around?

Wendy* says:

I think this is my favorite week thus far. I think her personality is shining through so much as she gets a lil’ older each week. Her pictures by the end of the year are going to be a trip!

Breanna says:

Jenn she is just GORGEOUS! I absolutely love her creamy skin & think curly hair…such a doll. And your photographs & quotes are awesome! I love reading these every week. In fact, I saw the post for it on Twitter & started to read it, then tried to talk myself into saving it for my normal reading times (during pumping nonetheless!) but couldn’t resist haha! Great job! Keep it up 🙂

Em says:

Amazing, as always. I will be doubly impressed if you manage to do this for your next child too.

Casey says:

I love day 112, too! The picture and the words are beautiful!

Haha Em, I don’t think I’ll be able to do this with #2, this is HARD. But I’ll try to do something special for him/her 🙂 Just have to think about what! haha

rose says:

109 and 110 are my favorite. Keep bringing us these adorable shots.

Tricia says:

I love reading these. Now I just want to know, who’s closet is bigger hers or yours? She is too cute in all her outfits!! My tween loves the pictures too! 🙂

Haha Tricia!! Hers is catching up to mine very quickly!! If I didn’t need so many suits for work she would have already passed me!! 🙂

melissa t. says:

Your little baby is so precious. I have to say, I love your photos! Keep it up!

I like day 111 best I think!

LiciaLee says:

Love these. the bunny is def. my favorite

I liked her page and showed her some BMM love 🙂

Stacie Lou says:

I looooove the bunny. Talk about adorable. Of course Little J looks adorable in every picture. I can understand why you are addicted to those bows. I kind of want them in big girl size too!

Mrs. K says:

I like them all. And her hair is beautiful.

I love coming across your page, it’s like a piece of sunshine on a gloomy day!

I mean it when I say, “Thank you so much for cheering me up today!”

111 is the best I think. Way cute!!

Love the pics, and I love the bows too! She has a cute headband with roses on it, which would look great on my daughter (her middle name is Rose)!

Mrs Scratch says:

Oh my gosh…I love Day 112 too. Hope you get the pictures fixed, I can’t wait to see the others.

melifaif says:

I just adore how Lil J’s hair is growing out!!!! So soft. And I just went and checked out that fantastic shoppe….oh yes!!! Sign me up…super cute stuff.

Heidi says:

If you have another child, its going to be really hard for you to do as much as you are doing for little J, like picture wise? You post so many things about little J what are you going to do when you have another baby, make a 365 for them too, so when they are older they don’t ask, why don’t i have all these pictures like my sister.

Anonymous, I do worry about that to be honest, but should I pass up doing something on one child just because I fear I may not be able to do the same for subsequent children? What if I can’t have any more? I will do something special for them too. It may not be the same, but it will be equally as special 🙂

Natalia says:

I love pic 109, makes me smile

maddy says:

I love them! very cute! love your stuff. Thank you very much for sharing.


Kristen says:

Picture 109 is definitely my favorite since I’m a dog freak…love that you didn’t throw the dog outside when you had a baby!! Drives me insane when people call me to put their dog in rescue just because they’ve had a baby! Thanks for showing that you can have a baby and a fur baby at the same time.

Oh and I would love to win something from Little Smash – Ca-ute stuff! Also, liked her on Facebook.

Erica says:

Love the smile in day 107 🙂

Thanks for sharing! They are all so cute – you always make me try harder to catch those perfect (or even better – imperfect) pictures of my baby girl!
