I Heart Faces-Photojournalism

I've been meaning to enter the I Heart Faces challenges each week, but have forgotten or put it off.  Here's how it works.  Each week they have a different theme.  You submit your photo and then a judge will go through and pick their favorites.  I like having a theme to work around when taking photos.

This weeks theme is photojournalism....using photos to tell a story.  I think these photos definitely fit!  I will be posting more of these photos tomorrow, but here is a sneak peek of Rilo Jane eating her first food!

ETA: Sorry, if you're on a laptop, this might cut off slightly...but it just looks so good on the big screen, I can't bear to make it smaller!

Six Months

Dear Rilo Jane,

You are now half a year old!  You have grown leaps and bounds from when we first met, six months ago.  You get bigger everyday and learn new and exciting things right before my eyes.  I am so happy and honored to be your mother.  I consider it an absolute privilege.  You are turning into such a sweet, curious and happy little girl.  I can't wait to see what the next six months bring!  I love you more than words could ever express!


P.S.  You have turned me into an emotional mess...I have tears rolling down my cheeks right now because I love you so much!

She is such an easy-going baby.  She is content and happy almost all of the time.  At six months she:

  • now rolls back to tummy consistently.  Which means she rolls all over the place!
  • is finally sleeping longer periods at night!  WOOHOO!  She rolls herself onto her tummy now, which is helping her sleep longer.
  • likes to drink out of cups or her sippy cup
  • loves to hang out upside down
  • started saying "rah rah rah rah".  One step closer to "mama". :)
  • gained a few more rolls...I'm sure of it.
  • just started eating solids...pictures to come!

The Bench

My Dad and Martha have this neat little bench in their entryway.  With my Dad spotting her, Rilo had a little photoshoot on it.

Great-Grandma 'Cisco and Great-Grandpa

When I was little I named all of my grandparents.  Grandma Cisco was named because she was from San Francisco.  ( I also came up with Grandma Jeep because she drove a Jeep Cherokee and Grandpa Oreo because he loved Oreos).  Anyway, here is Great-Grandma 'Cisco with Rilo...and Great-Grandpa managed to sneak in a photo too!

I wish this next one were more in focus...I love their expressions.

Love this next series.  You can't trust Rilo around glasses.
