Monday's subject was some baby socks, and I opted to shoot them with the baby attached. Evan was wearing his striped outfit from Thanksgiving, which was getting a little tight at size 0-3 mo. On a whim, I decided to put the matching socks on him, even though those were 6-12 mo. (He was about 2 1/2 months old at the time.) They ended up fitting surprisingly well, although there was certainly some extra room in the toes. Unlike most of the other socks he had been wearing, these stayed on his feet and I didn't have to constantly stretch them back over his heels. They still fit well now, which is good, because he's just getting big enough to start wearing the 6-12 mo. matching hoodie.
We have more baby for Tuesday's picture of the day. I took him out in his stroller (with the car seat) to Noe Valley, got some frozen yogurt, and stopped by Whole Foods. The shot below was taken while I was eating my fro-yo outside the shop.

The next day was rather gloomy and gray. Evan was also taking long naps, so it felt like a good day to stay home and drink some tea. This was White Ambrosia from Tea Forte. It's pretty much my favorite, although I think I prefer my usual loose tea system to the single serving pyramids, cute as they are. I was out of practice at making single servings in tea cups, and I ended up making that first cup too strong.

I think this was also around the time that I got the official word from the nutritionist's office that the results from my post-gestational diabetes glucose test had been normal. To celebrate, I thought a nice sugary donut would be just the thing. So I went to Dynamo for the first time in since last spring and got a vanilla bean donut. It was probably a slow afternoon, because the guy told me to pick another one for free... I chose Lemon Thyme and split it with Steve for breakfast the next morning.
For Friday's picture, I took a portrait of one of Evan's toys. It was the beginning of a series, kind of inspired by the baby animal prints that are in his room. I liked the minimalist style of those pictures, and it seemed a good way to document some of his early toys—at least the ones that will stand by themselves on his dresser. Evan got this frog for Christmas from Bruce and Bonnie, but he's only developed the grabbing skills necessary to hold it in the last month or two.

Saturday's shot comes from another walk to Noe Valley and back. Steve and I have ended up walking there with Evan almost every weekend, whether it's to get coffee at Bernie's or dinner ingredients at Whole Foods. That day, I took a picture of a flowering maple on the walk back.

And then, we went to Walgreens on Sunday. (Very exciting.) If I remember correctly, this was the first time we faced Evan out in the Baby Bjorn, which is why I took a picture of Steve wearing him.
