-portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week of 2014-

Abbie- Art jam on my bed today. Every time she catches me drawing, she wants to do it too, so I gave her one of my old, empty sketchbooks to use.

Library /02


Sorry for the quiet around here and the backlogged postings to catch up on my 52 project. Recent bouts of sickness, stresses with changing majors, and not much of a spring break kinda took over for a bit. I hope you all have been well. Here is March's library post. Pictures taken with my iPhone 5c and edited with the Afterlight app.

Mama:
Hollow City: The Second Novel of Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs 
(I've already read the first one, don't worry)
Native Guard Poems by Natasha Trethewey 

Owlfish:
Puff The Magic Dragon by Leonard Lipton
The Book of Shadowboxes: A Story of the ABCs by Laura L. Seeley 
(my copy and favorite from when I was little!)




I also need to make sure to wide my youngest brother, Benjamin, a very happy 14th birthday! He's a smart and caring young man and deserves the world. Happy Birthday, Ben!

Abbie- (backlogged post to the day of the picture) This was from when she had a twenty-four hour stomach bug. Lots of whining and vomiting. Wasn't pretty and she ended up giving it to me!

Abbie- (backlogged post to the day of the picture) This was from her nap time where she instead on sleeping in my bed. We're in this stage now and needless to say, my back does not appreciate it. And we've relapsed back to using bink, which I am trying to fix!

This picture was shot with a Nikon D3000 with Af-S Nikkor 18-55 mm lens (the kit lens).

Abbie- She's been getting over a pretty rough ear infection this past week, so I let her have the bunk again to ease some of her pain and tension. Probably gonna regret that choice later, but so be it. Lots of rest, medicine, movies, books, and pictures to help distract her.

Happy International Women's Day. <3

Abbie- She's been rocking the boxer post-match look because she likes to keep up with the "big kids" at her school, which usually lands her somehow running into things face first. Tough cookie, this one.

This picture was shot with a Nikon D3000 with an AF-S Nikkor 55-200 mm lens. And welcome March! And we are FINALLY out of this first round of retrograde for 2014.  Hopefully this means this awful winter may soon be passing us by. I love cold weather and all, but there's a fucking limit to what one can take.
