I’m running a day late this week because I accidentally scheduled a bunch of appointments for my photo day. It turns out that, after a mere two weeks, Beatrice is up to 9 lb 5 oz and 21.5 inches. That’s 2 inches of growth (unless someone made a mistake early on, which I think is possible) and 7 ounces over birth weight. Need I mention that she likes to eat? A lot? All the time?
Anyhow, here are this week’s photos plus some outtakes. I still can’t decide if I want solo baby, baby in the center with Camilla on the side, or a sister shot. Here are my top three contenders:
I was thinking that I would have to coax Camilla into participating, but as soon as she saw the fabric she shouted “next to! next to!” (because last time I told her to lie down next to Beatrice) and immediately flopped on the carpet. Um, okay. I had no idea you felt that way. Camilla is really a sweet sister, as you’ll see below. I don’t know that these photos will make it into the “final” project, but I am so glad that I have them.
As a side note, I did have some trouble with the fabric wrinkling this time. This is particularly annoying since you can’t really do repeats with a weekly photo project. Maybe I’ll safety-pin it to something stiffer next time. Any other suggestions?
