"A portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2013."

Maile: Marmee and Papa took our girl to the bookstore as a special treat. (The bookstore and the zoo are Maile's two favorite places.) One of the new books she brought home is the classic Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? She's already memorized the book, and knows which animal will be around the next page, before you even turn it. Her treasure has hardly left her side at all, even in sleep.

As an aside, I know Maile's face has been swollen from teething, but I didn't realize just how much until I saw this picture. Poor little love.

Part of Che and Fidel's 52 project.

Last week, I particularly enjoyed the portraits posted by Endearing Life, and April. Please, pay their beautiful pictures a visit.

I feel it's important to note that I am working without any editing software; any photos you see here are SOC images.

  7. Sweet, sweet girl. That's what I think nearly every time I see her, I know, but it's just so true!

    I love when you get glimpses into how their little minds work too, like with book memorizing and pointing and things. It's amazing.

    1. Hehe. Thank you so much, Christina!

      I agree. Maile has had a bit of a language explosion recently, and it's amazing to watch, and be a part of.
