36/52





" A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013. "

36/52

Sofia: Looking over at my Polaroid camera longingly, you beamed with joy when I let you push the shutter button over and over.  You didn't even care that film wasn't popping out anymore, the simple joy of the flash firing was enough for you.  We spent the next twenty or so minutes taking pictures of each other and practicing our best "say cheese!" PS- every time I hear the phrase, "say cheese!" I can't help but think of this and laugh.

Alba: Sweet, newly-turned four month old.  I can't get over how much you're changing daily.  It has been so exciting to see bits of your sister, bits of me, bits of Papa shine through.  It's like a surprise daily to see what's in store for us next. You've been drooling like a water faucet and everyone thinks it's pretty darn hilarious - I'm wondering if this is the precursor to some brand new baby teeth?

PS- thanks to all of you on your super sweet encouragement and heartfelt comments on yesterday's post. I was in no way expecting that sort of support, my heart is full to the brim. I feel so much better just letting it all out sometimes, no matter how raw and un-pretty it is. When I feel that when I can write with honesty from a place that is close to my heart, everything is going to be okay. Hope you're all ready to start enjoying your weekends - I know I am!
