365 Love Letters Week 20

| | |

These are probably my favorite photos to date. I know I’ve said that quite a few times, but I hope that means these are getting better all around. There are a couple iPhone photos mixed in but overall I tried to be more creative with these and pull out my inner-Anne Geddes.

I didn’t post these on facebook last week day by day and thought I’d make them all a surprise. I’m not sure I’ll keep doing that though because editing 7 or 8 at once takes longer. I may start sharing these on Monday instead of Sunday though. We shall see!

Just one more week and we’ll be half way through the year. I can’t believe I’ve made it this far!! I can’t wait to show her these, and hopefully get them organized in a book for her.

It’s really hard to choose a favorite this week, but it’s probably 155 or 153. Have a favorite?

I didn’t want to leave Snoop out this week. We were rolling and playing on the floor and these two just love playing together.

Polkadot onesie by Carters; Owl hat from Mary Sue $11

I found this nest at Goodwill for $3.50 and bought the owl hat just for it. I’ve seen these on kids and really wanted Lil’ J to have one. Too bad it’s going to be over 100 degrees for the next few months. I took this one morning before it got too hot.

Mudpie Giraffe Dress from Lollipop Moon; Bow from London Blue Designs

I’m trying to find things around my house that I can use as photo props instead of having to go out and buy more. Especially since I don’t have space for these things. I had this bucket in my kitchen and thought “Lil’ J can fit here!” The advice couldn’t be more true at this point in my life.

Mommy and Me Bows from Bella Rose; Sweater dress from Old Navy

Some more self-portraits with child using my good old tripod and remote. She was trying to get away from me here. Usually that’s not the case but I fear these moments will get more prevalent. Notice our matching bows?

Polo dress via Ebay

She loves trying on hats and sunglasses. We picked this up for a quick shot at the store. She is so fun to tote around.

She came to visit me at work during my break and I fed her in the make up room. I ws rubbing her feet and snapped this photo on my phone. They are so tiny and mine are huge and ugly.

Tutu and hair bow from London Blue Designs; Tutu top from Halo Heaven

Lil’J modeled this tutu that reminded me of a Disney princess, and it’s very sweetly named after her stage name “Journey” called “Cinderella’s Journey.” I thought this advice seemed fitting.

Ruffle Leg Warmers from Happy Crawlers (discount code”BABYMAKINGFRIENDS”); Hair clip from Chloe and Maude

Am I a bad mom for letting her eat a couple girl scout cookies for the sake of a photo prop? Good news is she wasn’t a huge fan and didn’t beg for more. I’m not trying to create a picky eater, but this advice is perfect for any woman.

And there you have it! My new favorite week of photos.

  1. Her owl hat is awesome. And, I love how serious she is wearing her Cinderella tutu.

    She is that freak of nature kid that gets cuter and cuter and cuter and cuter. When she was little, I could barely imagine that. She was already as cute as they come.

    Thanks for the advice about Paint The Moon today. Very helpful!

  2. Can I just say that I think the 365 photo idea is the neatest thing, and you are SUCH a talented photographer – I hope I can be half as cool a mom as you when I have kids!

  3. You already know how much I adore these, but I think Day 153 is my favorite. FOR TODAY!!! Hahahha…you capture my heart with these. They are so sweet.
