“A portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week in 2014″

Esmé at 19 weeks.

Aaaaaaand she’s sitting up! Well, mostly. She’s still a tad wobbly and falls over sometimes, but she’s getting the hang of it! It’s so amazing watching her grow. I feel equal parts excited and nostalgic. I don’t know that I’m ready for her to be sitting up without me! I don’t know that I’m ready for her to eat real food! But she’s ready, and I promised when she was in my womb that I would allow her to develop in her own time, whether that’s faster or slower than I think it ‘should’ be.

Esmé at 18 weeks.

We’ve been practicing rolling over…it hasn’t happened just yet. She’s hated spending time on her belly from day one, so getting her to roll over has been a little bit of a challenge, but she’s nearly there! But there’s nothing she loves more than hanging out in her diaper on the living room floor 🙂

She’s four months old now! Her eyes are the bluest, her dimples are the cutest, and her nose is the buttoniest.

She is almost sitting up on her own! It’s hard to believe that she’s nearly 4 months old. She is growing into such a joyful spirit, but she always has a serious edge to her, too. It’s been so fun to see her personality peek out more everyday.

Esmé at 15 weeks.

The girl has found her tongue! She cannot and will not stop sticking it out and it is hilarious. This was taken at Marché where Micah and Esmé took me for Mother’s Day. She was such a delight…she slept the whole time we were waiting for a table, and then woke up when we sat down and calmly hung out with us while we ate our meal (which was delicious). I didn’t have my camera around, so this iPhone picture will have to do, but it’s better than no photo for week 15!
