Tuesday pics... Brought to you by things a baby probably shouldn't be playing with

Just some miscellaneous so I can maybe get back into the habit of blogging again on a regular basis.

I bought a camera strap off of Etsy and I'm completely in love with it (from here). It even has a lens cap holder sewn in! I'm probably more excited about it than I should be. We have a trip coming up and I know I'll take more photos since I won't have to physically hold my camera anytime we go out.

And my baby is adorable. We've been having a good week. That sixth tooth finally popped through and a mysterious rash on her leg cleared up, so we aren't teething, we don't have any rashes, we're getting back on track, sleep-wise, and the princess is a happy little one lately.

So serious....

And then she cracks a smile!

Robert says it doesn't count, my mom says it does. But today she "took her first step" by herself! She was standing up, I let go of her, she took a step, and she fell down on her knees. And then she did it a few more times later in the day. I'm not sure if it counts as a first step when you faceplant immediately afterwards, but regardless, it was pretty neat. She's so good at walking when we're holding her hand that she's almost trying to run sometimes, so she'll be all over the place before I know it.

So she'll be able to make her very own piles of diaper inserts.

Maybe even sort them herself.

She'll be able to reach for Mommy's camera...

Chew on electrical cords.

A lot.

Eat toilet paper.

And play with all the dog toys.

I can't wait.


  1. lol. Love this post. Especially the last picture. Anna takes Layla's rawhide away from her and I find her chewing on it all the time. Gross!

  2. That first smile pic... she totally looks like you! They say all babies are supposed to look like their dad so cavemen can know what kids are theirs, so as she grows up, it appears she's going to have a lot more of you in her! Looks like it's time to start baby-proofing.

  3. I can't believe she has 6 teeth already! Zoe still has 0! And I love that big curl in the middle of her forehead....so precious! Question...what kind of camera do you have? I love all your closeups of Julia...the pictures are so clear. I've been contemplating getting a "real" camera but don't know if I'm savvy enough to figure them out. Are they easy?
