20130810-231437.jpg“A portrait of my child, once a week, every week in 2013”

I didn’t photograph much this week. Or cook. Or bake(well actually I made some mini cheesecakes that I will have coming your way shortly). I was tired before the week even began. I knew all along I had to work an extra shift this week and I think I psyched myself up to be tired. I can’t imagine what would happen if I actually went back to work full time. But this baby is only little once and I don’t plan on going back to work more until she hits preschool or elementary school. Hopefully by then I have some sort of career plan, since I’ve pretty much decided to throw everything up until this point out the window. I have a lot of dreams, and a lot of ideas, but somehow they all have a missing piece which I just can’t seem to figure out how to put together. Frankly at this point in my life, a career is simply not that important to me. This girl and my family, is.

I love this long flowy dress on her. It’s funny, when she was born I dressed her in so many boyish outfits, because I simply just did not see her as delicate and feminine. I still love boyish clothes on her, but now I also love putting her in dresses and even(gasp) pink. Not that she is all that much more delicate or feminine now, but there’s something about this dress on her that I just love. And that hat. She does not care for that hat however. And that little pensive look. I love this face. It’s just so much who she is.

Last week this was my favorite photo. I tried all week to get a good shot of us nursing for breast feeding awareness week, but a crappy iPhone “selfie” was just not going to cut it for me. This photo on the other hand, is quite beautiful.
