I'm woken up at 8:30AM daily to the cutest, most painful fistful of my neck caught between the fingers of an adorable 7 month old girl.  Sofia now figures out that by grabbing on with full force and pulling toward her mouth, she can get anything her little heart desires

Holy cow.  Can I just start off by saying this has been one of the funnest months we've had so far?  Cuz it has been. Sofia has been skilled, yes SKILLED I tell you, at using those tiny paws of hers lately.  Whether it means waking me up in the morning, grabbing for my boobs, grabbing the spoon out of my hand (or water bottle I'm drinking) the girl knows what she wants, darnit.  It's been hilarious to see her scootch across the floor reaching as hard as she can to try and get the toy that happens to be so ironically just out of reach.

My Current Stats:
Weight: 20lbs
Teeth: none
Hair: longer
Tricks: sitting up by myself

We're closer than we've ever been to getting Sofia to sit alone without me having to be nearby.  She's been getting really good at it, but I still don't trust her enough to walk away.  One of the funniest things Erick and I have noticed her doing lately happens as she gets frustrated... she'll be laying on her stomach looking at her toys, realize she can't grab onto the one that she wants and then consequently bury her face in her blanket and mumble something along to herself as loud as she can.  We were laughing so hard that now, this is a funny game.  She'll say something into the blanket, we laugh, then she laughs.  Cause and effect.  It's happening.  ALL OVER THE PLACE.



Gosh, little lady.  You sure are becoming your own adorable little person.  I love you.

** PS- little adorbs owl plush was made for Sof by a good friend and you can find them here!

Easter Weekend

Hello! Happy mid-week to you. This is the roll of photos we shot over our Easter weekend, and oh what a wonderful weekend it was. It was so nice to have family here to visit - even if the weather was cooler than we anticipated! We visited the redwoods in Felton, ate vegetarian burritos, went to the epic shoreside in Montara, and the brewing company in Half Moon Bay. Our hearts are full and our home is feeling quite empty now ;)

As a side note, I've found a renewed love with film. This is a post for another time, but it bears mentioning here! There has been much on my mind re: photography, and hopefully this will be the space I can share that.

For the curious, all the above were shot on a Nikon FM10 with Fuji Superia 400 speed film.

The Long And Short Of It

Hi, friends. How was your weekend? After having non-stop rain for nearly a month, we finally received a short break in the El NiƱo weather to head to the coast. Even though it's not in our backyard, I still feel like twenty miles to the beach is a good compromise. It really is lovely here and it makes me happy to see the girls so at home in the sea.

This week we are gearing up for Easter and some very special visitors -- my Mama and my sister! It will be the first time Mom has seen our new home or visited the Bay Area, so to say we are excited would be an understatement. We cannot wait. I've even kept it as a surprise from the girls, so I'm sure the look on their faces alone when they see Grammie and their Auntie will be the highlight of the whole trip.

What about you? Any special Easter plans or crafting?

We made some hot crossed buns for the first time last year, and I'm hoping I can bake a little something special this year too. We're going to try this recipe a…

Made It To Another Weekend : The Table

Oh, weekend. We are so happy you're here. It's been a doozy lately. I won't put you through the pitiful details, don't worry-- but I'm just happy to exhale a little bit and am welcoming these days of togetherness with open arms. PS- look at me using unfiltered iPhone photos in a blog post. Who am I? Sometimes I don't even recognize myself. Truly a measure of just how exhausted I really am both mentally and physically ;)

And while I've been seriously down and out in every other area of my life, we've actually been doing some pretty cool things at home. I'm so proud of Sofia and her desire to soak up new information, to learn, and to think of me as a pretty cool "teacher". I'm so in awe of everything she does. But this is all part of the inevitable fact that these kiddos of ours are growing up. 
Most days we'll do some kind of worksheet, practicing our letters and cutting skills and getting to color.... other days we'll just spe…
