Photo challenge!

Joining The Paper Mama with her weekly photo challenge.

This week’s challenge: EXCITEMENT

Now we all know that Lily is for the most part a serious girl but she does get excited every once in a while.

I have never seen such excitement in her face like the time we went swimming at Whittaker.

It was her first time and she was so excited to be there.

She wasn’t the only one, avo Joao was pretty excited too! 😉

The Paper Mama

A saturday afternoon with daddy

Saturday afternoon while I went on a little shopping outing with a friend, Lily and Will had some daughter and daddy time to themselves.

Will took Lily to the park at South Point.

A great park that was renovated a while ago where you can catch some great sunsets as well as watch the ships go by.

They had a great time!

All photos by Will (aka Lily’s dad). Not only is he a great husband and father but he is also an awesome photographer. 😉

Self photo challenge

Joining Juliana at Shakti Mama with her photo challenge on the elements of self series.

This week’s challenge: favorite body part self portrait.

For me, my favorite body part (and not just on me but on women in general) is the neck, collar bone and shoulders. (I know, those are 3 body parts but they all go together ;))

It’s a part of the body that can show strength as well as vulnerability.

It’s one of the reasons I often prefer short hair to long hair.

In case you were wondering…

There has been an overload of pictures of Lily lately.

Why?

Well, my dad who lives in Portugal and has not yet met Lily has been reading the blog.

I’m sooooooooo happy about it!! 🙂

So, I try to put in as many pictures as I can so he can watch his grand Lily grow up.

He will however get to meet her soon.

We just bought our plane tickets last night. (finally!)

Lily and I will be arriving in Portugal on October 14th. That’s my dad’s birthday. (Happy birthday dad!!)

(OLA PAI!!!!!!! Beijinhos.)

Photo challenge!

Joining The Paper Mama‘s photo challenge again.

This week’s challenge: SELF.

Continuing with my series of bathroom self portraits, this one was just taken at The Sanchez playhouse.

When I was first taking the picture I was mainly focused on the “women” sign and my reflection in the mirror next to it.

“Women”, I thought.

But now looking at the picture, I focus on the strainer for the sink. And I just can’t help but to smile with the symbolism of it all… 😉
