"A portrait of my children, once a week, (almost:) every week in 2013."
Siena: throwing rocks into a frozen lake trying to break the ice...and hoping for spring Reed: starting to walk if someone is holding his hands and mostly smiling at everything and everyone
We missed 11/52 - it has been a hectic few weeks, with lots of travel and a horrible flu that lasted for weeks.
We were hoping for spring, but it seems nowhere in sight. Nonetheless the spring nature table went up, and our now traditional Spring Bunny (or Easter Bunny if you so chose) story has been told, we made some beeswax eggs and bunnies all in the hopes that maybe if we hope and pretend hard enough the spring might actually arrive. Today we went for a hike; the lake was still frozen pretty solid and it took some heavy rocks to break the ice. I love the drive to the lake, rolling hills, pastures and (what seems like) content cows and horses, every once in a while a deer and today several large, impressive birds of prey, a chipmunk and a black-nosed doe. Joining in the awesome Che and Fidel 52 project.
Portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013
This week I couldn't resist adding a few pics of these two together. They really seem utterly smitten with each other. This last week we were all still mostly recovering from the most miserable cold ever. Looking forward to the spring break and hopefully actual spring.
This week was all about making it through a nasty cold, and counting down the days until I came back from a 2 day conference. I missed my little ones so much. Being without Reed for days was sheer hell- he is still almost exclusively breastfed. The separation, it turns out, was both physically and emotionally more difficult on me than him. I am lucky that my partner is in many ways a primary care provider for the kids...especially in the last year or so, and that probably played a huge role in how easy the separation was for the kids.
