adam: 23 weeks

calivintage_0185_600

and here is my chubby little munchkin at 23 weeks. i found these ridiculously adorable vintage shorts at the flea market thinking that he’d grow into them at some point along the line. but when we got home, i discovered that they’re already his size! this baby is about as big as they come. everyone who comes up to us comments on how chunky he is, which is no surprise because he’s at the very tippy top of the weight scale. but what people often overlook is the fact that he’s completely off the charts in length. he’s already 29″ long at 6 months old. easily larger than some babies twice his age! it’s pretty cool because he’s so strong and healthy that i never have to worry about him, but boy does he break mommy’s back!

adam: 22 weeks

just when i got all caught up with my weekly photos of adam, i fell behind again with all this moving! i’m just glad i still managed to snap some photos of adam at 22 weeks! true story: i am obsessed with baby bonnets (you’ve seen his outfit photos on my instagram, right?), but was having a really hard time finding any that were summer appropriate in fabric or jersey that weren’t pink or frilly. and as fate would have it, i just so happened to connected with petite soul while browsing around instagram. they just launched their business earlier this year with the goal of bringing bonnets back when they discovered a serious lack of options in the marketplace. we got to chatting, and they very kindly sent me this adorable little bandit hat, hand-made right in nyc. it looks like the style has since sold out, but they’re constantly adding new, limited run styles to the shop for both boys and girls.

adam: 21 weeks

one of the best things about mornings is that adam always wakes up with a big smile on his face. he coos and smiles and laughs, and we chill out in bed while i sing him the good morning song. eventually, i put on some music and pull out his little baby activity gym so he can play for a bit before we start our day.

adam: 20 weeks

if you don’t pay attention, some weeks truly fly by. i almost didn’t even get a photo of adam this past week, but thankfully i pulled out my camera and got a couple of shots over the weekend while we were barbecuing at my grandparent’s house. we spend way more time there than we ever expected to. a lot of our weekends are spent at their house, just hanging out all day with family. we’ve always been really close-knit, but now that i have a baby of my own, i’m really beginning to understand how important it is to have a community of people around to raise a child.

that long-haired gentleman is my brother. it’s so fun to watch adam build relationships, he has a special affinity for my brother and he always stares and smiles at him when he enters the room. my brother has this very calm presence, and somehow he has this incredible ability to put adam to sleep when no one else can.

it’s been harder to get pictures of adam lately. he’s always wiggling around like a little salamander, trying his best to crawl around. as you can see in these photos, he wasn’t particularly interested in my efforts to photograph him in this silly pixie hoodie that i found at the thrift store. every time i tried to sit him down, he kinda rolled forward and onto his belly and started kicking around. this boy wants to be mobile!

adam: week 18

calivintage_com_0599

i know, i know. you’ve seen this hat three times already… we’re just getting good mileage out of it! that and it’s just a matter of what ends up getting photographed more. i swear, he wears other stuff (see also: my instagram)! i guess he was just more willing to sit still whenever i put him in that hat. maybe it’s like when you put a harness on a cat and they suddenly just lay there motionless? i kid, i kid.

anyway, i’m pretty much caught up on these weekly posts, which means i won’t be doubling up on them any more! and i promise that next week he won’t be wearing a sailor hat.

adam: week 17

i went back through my photos for my weekly adam post, and it looks like somewhere along the line i skipped ahead by a week! i can’t figure out when it was or how i did the math wrong, so i’m just going to continue along with the timeline from week 17. if i ever figure it out, i’ll have to go back and fill in the missing week.

anyway, this is adam with that ridiculous dancing bunny that my grandparents got him for easter. it sings a song to the tune of the macarena. isn’t it funny how they always like the most annoying things? i find myself with that little jingle stuck in my head sometimes, “heeeey, jellybeana!”

adam: 16 weeks

so far, in adam’s short life, we have not yet stepped into a photo studio for a professional portrait. i do intend to do it at some point (maybe at six months? once a year?), but i was so in love with this little fancy lad outfit, that i decided to set him up on the living room sofa for a little portrait session of my own. the very generous rebecca from ladida boutique sent us this amazing little bubble romper and beautiful mustard cardigan fit for a special occasion. i topped it off with his little handmade sailor hat and a pair of white saltwater sandals. it’s just so perfect, i love to see babies wearing less traditional colors like black, and i love the contrast with the white and mustard. it’s the exact type of outfit that makes for a stellar portrait. in fact, i think i want to get one of these printed in a nice big size to share with family.

oh man, major fashion faux pas! looks like i put adam in the exact same outfit on both easter and mother’s day. well, he wore several different outfits on both days since he usually has between 2 – 3 outfit changes per day. not for the sake of fashion, but for the sake of cleanliness. so you guys are getting a repeat today. the only different is that these photos were shot several weeks prior to the last one. he wasn’t much in the mood for pictures on easter, so i assumed none of the shots we took that day came out, but lo and behold, i found a few gems.

sailor stripes

i know i already share a weekly portrait of my little munchkin, but hopefully you won’t mind if he shows up in a few of my outfit posts here and there. i do tend to have even more fun dressing him than i do myself. and while i never plan it intentionally, on many occasions, we’ve also ended up walking out the door in coordinated outfits.  i mean, it does make a lot of sense why this happens. i pick out all of his clothes, so i tend to gravitate towards the same colors and patterns that i wear myself (mostly stripes, lots of navy). and every morning, i throw on an outfit moments before i get him dressed for the day. so when boden asked to send over a few pieces to try out, i didn’t think twice when i picked out the 5 pack breton stripe onesies for adam and the short sleeve breton for myself. so here we are in all of our glory this past weekend on mother’s day like a perfect pair of sailors.
