I’m taking a photograph of Eleanor each day until the new baby arrives, to document our last 4-6 weeks as a family of three. I explained the project and posted the first photograph in the series here: The 4-6 Weeks Project. Today, I’m back with the rest of the photos from week one.
Clementines are in season and you love them. You kept asking for more, pointing up at them and saying “ball”. Later, mama cleaned out all of the kitchen cabinets while you helped. You loved it because normally we have to tell you NOT to take everything out!
You played with your cousins while mama went to the doctor for a checkup. Mama is 36 weeks along now and very uncomfortable, but she and your soon-to-arrive baby brother are doing well. You’re going to be the only girl out of seven kids on daddy’s side of the family (so far, at least).
We all went to your great-great-uncle Bill’s eightieth birthday party today. His cake said “Congratulations, you’ve made it to the halfway mark!”, and a lot of family members were there that we don’t see very often. Everyone thought that you were very cute, and so well behaved.
Pre-dinner dance party! Daddy was cooking his pasta dish, but you brought your baby doll over to him so that he could make her dance with you. You love to spin around until you’re dizzy, and then you bust out the breakdancing moves.
This picture cracks mama up! You’re such a little cutie. Your mama and daddy both wear glasses sometimes, so you want to wear them too (but yours are just for fun). You call them, along with everything else that goes on your head, a “hat.”
Your grandparents gave you a lot of cooking toys for Christmas, and you’ve been having so much fun with them. You come up with some interesting combinations (cupcakes and ketchup, anyone?), and then you bring them over for mama and daddy to eat. You like to share with the dog too!
