A Portrait A Week: 48/52 {and the Freshly Picked Giveaway WINNER}

“A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2013.”


Finally, I’m caught up with this portrait-a-week project!

I’d like to introduce you all to “cheese face” Mia! For awhile now, she’s been saying “cheese” whenever she sees or holds a camera (and sometimes my phone). She’s even said “cheese” a time or two when I ask her to while taking her picture. It’s only recently that she’s established a solid “cheese face” while taking pictures. This is it.

I LOVE IT!!! Seriously, I wouldn’t change a thing about it. This is her personality in a nutshell. She’s a complete goof ball, a silly Sally, a nut ball, a fire cracker! She loves to get a reaction out of Daddy Dom and I. She knows what makes us laugh and/or smile and she just runs with that bit of power. Here are just a few of her lovable and silly quirks: sits in the laundry basket after clothes are emptied out, pretends to fall down and says “Uhf!”, spins in circles, runs laps around our kitchen island, pretends to lick the dogs, pretends to BE a dog by barking, pretends to be a dog by crawling on the ground next to them, squawks like our chickens, crows like our rooster (sometimes at him or with him), tries to scare us with a loud “Boo!” and dances her little butt off throughout the day. There’s more that I’m just not recalling at the moment, but I think this list paints a pretty good picture of just how fun this kid is. Love her always.

Here are some of my favorite “portraits” from week 47 (last week):

this blue-eyed, heart grabbing expression! // “I come in peace”…love animal + baby bonds // beautiful Bo and her lovely curls and finest pouty face // this killer smile and twinkling eyes!

You can find plenty more portraits from last week here
