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

Berlin: Her concentration is unwavering. She can keep her focus directed towards something she is interested for unbelievable amounts of time.

My favs last week include: I mean look at Stella’s hair, is this girl gorgeous or what!? / This black and white with Evie on her tiptoes is to die for / I love all of these, but the last one shot in bed is wonderful

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

Berlin: Last week was spent visiting grandma & grandpa (or FarFar as we like to call him). She spent her days chasing after their dog and watering the plants. At the end of the trip I realized I need more plants and she would just die for her own dog, alas to say the latter part is not going to happen.

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

Berlin: She is officially a walking gal now, and with style might I add. She does the most adorable “disco walk,” as I like to call it, where she pumps one arm while she walks, as if she’s dancing.

Favorites from last week: I just discovered this blog and I’m glad I did, the photos are all beautiful, including this one of her kids / I’m in love with all Kate’s images, and this one is no exception / I love this second one of her daughter Bailey, such an honest moment.

Berlin: One of her favorite games is emptying any bag or wallet she can get her hands on. Lucky for us, it keeps her entertained through an hour long dinner.

Here is what a dinner out looks like for us.

Ultrasound

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

So I’m still a bit behind on posting my weekly portraits, but hey getting a great shot that captures her mood or our adventures every week is proving to be harder than I thought.

Berlin and I had a lot of great moments last week, but what really stuck out was the hours spent in the hospital getting multiple ultrasounds done on Berlin’s kidney.

These tests have been a long time coming, in fact I’ve been putting them off for 6 months now. I somehow convinced myself that her kidney’s would heal themselves-to give myself some credit, I was actually told that most times the condition reverses itself (so I’m not entirely crazy!).

To rewind a bit, while in utero, we found that Berlin’s left kidney was quite enlarged (for reasons we are not sure of), but they told us to wait until she was born to have it checked again. After her first ultrasound at one month old they told us to wait again until she was one year to see if the issue resolved itself. Here we are at 17 months and sadly her condition has not cleared up. We are still waiting to get the final results, so we won’t know the treatment or the diagnosis until then. So for now, we are trying not to panic and hoping the procedure (if one is done) will be minimally invasive.

Berlin: she was a real trooper during the 2 hours it took to get images. It wasn’t her favorite thing by any means, but nothing a paci and a little YouTube couldn’t fix. She even assisted the doctor with the camera from time to time. She is a brave little gal.

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

Berlin: She is a true character, always alive with personality. She also enjoys these oat bars like no other, this our daily routine, coffee for mama, oat bar for Berlin.

I decided this week I didn’t want to limit myself to one “perfect” shot, rather than capture the whole mood (if need be). So here it is, 3 portraits of my daughter.
