Seven months already! I can’t believe it! I think this is one of my favorite chalkboard months yet. It took me two days to come up with it, I personally like #3. I took this photo by myself too. In the past I would have my husband stand guard so she wouldn’t roll off but this time I felt confident that we could do it with out him and we succeeded! I had just finished the blanket shown in this picture too. I have been taking a sewing class and this was my first project. It’s made from scraps of our clothes, a pair of pajama pants from high school, a pair of plaid, wool pants from Abercrombie & Fitch I bought when I was a junior in high school, my fat pants (the first pair of jeans I bought after having Olive) and my husband’s dress shirt. On the back I did a buttery yellow, super soft fabric. I love it and so does she. You can also notice that Olive is wearing her pajamas, we have pajama Monday and these are just plain cute jammies! I loved that she turned around in the chair to show me her kitty butt!! So big and so funny and so smart!
I had her 7 month photos taken my my dear friend Anne at ALM Photography. I wanted to do something different, I have been trying to take her photos for weeks now. I’d get her into position but the second I’d put my camera up in front of my face she’d get distracted. So it was nice to have someone else pushing the button. Plus I love Anne’s studio! The photo of Olive standing was a re-creation of a photo of me, we are wearing the same shoes in the photos. My mom just told me though that I was 10 months in my photo not 6-8 months like I thought.
We are into month eight now and wowza, what a difference! Teething is a nightmare!
