Well, we're a tad bit late on the monthly photos, forgive me!  The beginning of February really got the best of me, but now with my birthday over and Valentine's upon us, I've had a second to snap a few photos of my growing daughter:

This month, Sofia has been starting to string her constants together, ("ta-ta, phl-phl," and what Erick is sure was "da-da.")  I'm not so sure, though! ;)
She also has been eating thicker textures, army crawling all over the house, clapping her hands to the english and spanish versions of "patty-cake" and waking up a little earlier in the morning.

Weight: 23 lbs. 99% percentile
Height: 71 cms. 90% percentile
Head: 44 cms. 84% percentile
*right on track for everything, we're super happy.

Honestly, I'm almost in shock that it's already been eight months.  This entire first year of hers has flown by even though I've been holding on to it so tightly. Before I blink, she will be turning a year old already, we'll be helping her destroy her first piñata, and she will be face-first in birthday cake.  What a whirlwind these months have been, full of happiness, tears, struggle and accomplishment.  Erick and I are so proud of everything Sofia is becoming, and everyday are reminded of how blessed we are to have such a happy and healthy baby.


  1. Ohhhhhh my gosh the photo where she's turning around and smiling at the camera?! So cute I just died.

  2. She's so adorable!!!! Already playing it up for the camera!!

  3. 8 months! She'll be hitting those milestones in strides soon! So exciting! Adorable photos, adorable baby : )

    Love, Jazmyn

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 Niño 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…

Hi friends. I wanted to take a minute to catch up together and fill you in on a few new things! To anyone new to our space, thank you for visiting and I'm glad you're here. You may have noticed the look around the blog has been much simpler and clean. It's something I'm trying to do not only in just the blog, but with my life itself... a bit of a spring-cleaning, if you will. My Facebook feed filled with "friends" I haven't talked to in ages, a twitter name that no one could pronounce or understand, blog columns and categories I couldn't keep up with, even pressure to post when I know I should just be enjoying my time with my family. The list is seeming never-ending for a lot of us out there, and I just wanted to be honest and say that I too have gotten "stuck" one time or another, and here's a few things I did to streamline my way out of it:

• Keep as many things cons…
