“A portrait of our daughter, once a week, every week, in 2014″ – A photo project …

This project has made me see how very quickly time flies by. In the early days, Al just had to be where we put here. Now, she chooses the moments when she wants to cuddle. There’s absolutely nothing that warms my heart quite like seeing Al with her papa.

“A portrait of our daughter, once a week, every week, in 2014″ – A photo project …

The loveliest moments happen when we get to spend time with the family. The first week of November, we secretly jumped on a plane, and surprised my sister for her 16th birthday. It was a wonderful trip, and I loved this moment with Gigi (my mom) was giving Al a sink bath.

A few weeks back, we headed to Lincoln City with our friends, Sara, Shawn, and Declan. Baby Declan and Alba are just 4 days apart in age, so it’s always such a joy to see them together. The weekend was a bit rainy, but when it mattered, it was beautiful. Such a great weekend … here are a few snaps!

I never knew how hard it could be to get two babies to look at the camera at the same time. I literally took 23 photos, and there wasn’t a single one where both of them were looking at the camera! Ha. Also, I don’t even want to know how much sand Alba ate.

Bathing beauties. AKA, pure chaos. Al fell almost immediately, and started crying. By the time she was ready to go back in Declan was pretty much over it. It was perfection.

Alba-and-Mama-1

A few weeks back, my mama, step dad, and sister came out to visit for a long weekend. Even though it was 3 short days, it was so full of love. I absolutely love seeing my family interact with Alba … There’s no better family. Let’s all take a vote to tell them that they need to move to Oregon!! Also, my sister took the photo above, and I am so in love with it.

Also, ALSO … Today is my baby sister’s 16th (!!!!) birthday. Haley, I love you so very much, and I am so very proud of the young woman you have become. It still scares me that you’ll be driving soon, but hey, I’m sure I scared my “elders” too! I am so excited for the year ahead of you. You are such a beautiful beam of light! I love you!!
