ordinary moments at our house…

it is no secret that my favorite moments to capture in photos are the simple, every-day moments that are so easily forgotten or completely overlooked… the day to day rituals that make up the rythm of our lives.

here are a few of my favorite, ordinary moments of recent…

doing “the tebow”…

we moved our dining table against the wall to make room for everyone coming to sophia’s first birthday party, we have found that we love having it there because it gives us so much more space in our dining room, so we have not moved it back to the middle of the room, yet… (& i’m not sure that we will).  i brought up a few bouncy balls & other toys for sophia to chase around & i let her explore the dining room while i was cleaning & cooking.

she has never really been “set loose” on the dining room before, but now that there is more room for her,  (and i re-organized & better baby-proofed it last week),  it is a great place to play with her cars & balls & grocery cart & baby stroller that we found at a garage sale a few days ago. (for $0.50).

she had all of those toys around her but of course she was having the most fun crawling in & out from under her high-chair & in & out of the curtains & “pounding” on the back door…

oooh sophia, you are such a busy girl & you keep me busy & running all day long. i wouldn’t change this for anything though, you are uber healthy & curious & inquisitive & learning new things by the minute… soak it all up baby girl, you are a sponge for new information right now…

baby girl, every-day is a good day for a party hat!!  sophia, every-day life is a celebration… if you live grounded, you will find so many reasons to celebrate on any given day…

snack time…

you are actually starting to use those cute front teeth of yours… so now you are able to try more “real” foods & you have moved on to “toddler stage” snacks. your favorites are banana or sweet potato puffs & your oat, granola & fruit “cookies”. you have always had water in your sippy cup, but now you are also drinking vitamin D milk & juices. so far you have had organic pear, apple juice & also organic banana, strawberry juice. the juices have not been your favorites though, you would much rather have milk or your favorite is still good-old-fashioned-water.

oooh sophia, you are so awesome!! you wore this party hat all afternoon!!  i don’t know why we didn’t do any self-portraits of the two of us because i wore my party hat too… next time we will remember.

since you have discovered how fun it is to feed the dog your snacks, now biggs is always right in your face, waiting for you to hand over the treats…

he knows if he just waits long enough you are going to want to feed him…

all of these photos & stories are from a perfectly normal friday afternoon…  May 18, 2012.
