Little one woke up so early, excited for the day ahead. Too early, as she is now asleep. Sweet dreams, big dreams. #babynarratives
Another day at Vargas Museum with my students. This is truly my favorite part of the semester. #museum #artstud
Tried an early morning shoot with Leia's 6 month cake. Actually, that cake is for her Mommy. Lol. Gluten-frew, vegan, and nut-free dark chocolate cake by @jertieskitchen. Photo did not do the cake justice. Leias's pretty dress and shoes also didn't make it. Lol. We want cake! #cake #babynarratives
Today at baby school, I was finally able to put the little down for a nap. We haven't been able to do that in the past 2 months, she insists on napping on our arms or chest. Whew. Sometimes, its the little moments that matters most. Especially when times get so very difficult. Onwards, little one. May you dream great dreams. #babyschool #babynarratives
Our little potato is now 6 months old. She really loves mashed potatoes! She grabs the spoon and puts it inside her mouth! Lol. The road to 6 months is a tough one, but we made it! She also hit so many milestones. She started baby school, made friends, got held by her teacher, and got left for a few moments at a time in school. She got held by her titos and titas and spent some time with them. She chased bubbles and reached out and popped them! She started her solids and had sips of water. She had a tantrum last night because she got confused with the water in her bottle, so today, we all went shopping for a sippy cup, even though we were supposed to stay in. The shoes that were given to her finally fits without falling so she's gonna try and wear them as much as possible while they still fit. But the little one is more interested in eating her shoes rather than looking pretty. Lol. She also had her fever for the first time, which was scary, but not so bad as it was gone in a few hours. Onwards little one! Hopefully, you'll eat plenty of different yummy food and have eating adventures, just like yout parents. Also, here's to hoping you'll start sleeping better again. Please? #babynarratives
