"A portrait of Ana every week for a year."

In warm weather all baths should be outside, in old plastic tubs and in the arms of grandma and great grandma. 


"A portrait of Ana every week for a year."

Babies cry. That's what they do.
Ana cries, but fortunately for us, she doesn't have that insatiable constant crying that makes us want to pack her up and return her! She cries when she needs to cry. We don't let it bother us and even let her cry when we know she's fine but just wants to let out steam. She's at 7 weeks and has been increasingly fussy in the late afternoon, I guess it's normal.  
A friend told me about Priscilla Dunstan who paid attention to her own child's cries and discovered that he would make the same sounds for certain situations. She summed it up to 5 different sounds babies make to communicate their needs: 
  • neh = hungry
  • owh = sleepy 
  • heh = discomfort (temperature, clothing, diaper, etc.)
  • eair = lower gas
  • eh = burp (air in the upper part of the chest)
I can easily identify eh and neh, but the rest I still have a hard time figuring them out.

My view of Ana in the sling. I've been taking here everywhere I go and this is her favorite (and mine) means of transport. Bulky strollers are hard to push around and in the sling she can see the world and then fall asleep. 


weekly portrait of our daughter Ana seems like a great project to follow.
I've been meaning to start editing some photos and create an album of her first year so I think this will help me keep track of her growth, her smiles, her milestones, her memories!
For a first portrait I want to include Pedro. We are parents now and as parents we are a team. He has been the best I could possibly ask for. Thank you my love!
