When I shoot pictures for Sarah’s new weekly photo I probably take between 50 and 60 pictures (depending on how long she is willing to lay there and squirm around). Sometimes I take more, sometimes less, but each week I have to narrow down which photo to feature. There are a few that I delete because she is blinking, or I accidentally cropped her arm out, or it’s blurry from her moving around. Then there are the remaining 40 or so that I go through to make the final cut.
Here are a few of the past 2 weeks runner-ups:
- week 15 -
Right here she look like her Uncle Matt when he plays basketball.
He always plays with his tongue sticking out to the side of his mouth…
Sucking on that bottom lip
Smiling at me while I talk to her and say “Come on Sarah, smile for the camera”
- week 16 -
Giggling and pulling those knees up tight
Eating her hands
aka: her favorite hobby
Looking at them again makes me re-think her week 15 choice. It’s always so hard to choose. I think she looks tinier in week 16 than the week before… she most have gotten taller and slimmed up a bit. More likely is the fact that her onesie was way too big the week before. She’s in a weird size spot because newborn things are too tiny and 6 months are too big, and I dont think they make 3 month onesies. They grow SO fast!!
I’m excited that we only have one more day until the weekend, a 3-day weekend at that. I’m hoping to finally get some sun on my skin, but without turning pink or red. Basically I want to spend as much time outdoors as I can, while Stephen has informed me he plans on taking as many naps as possible. Have I shared the stories of our first couple dates and how Stephen made me think he liked the outdoors?? Remind me to tell you sometime, he tricked me reeeeeal good. Clever guy.
