"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014."
Emmitt: E, C, and I had been playing pirates in his room right before I took this picture. He climbed up on his bed and was jumping about and grabbing the dragonflies that hang from the ceiling. He's had them since he was a baby. They were my version of a mobile over his crib. He kept flinging them and discovered that if you really put some force in it, you can make the dragonfly hit the moving fan, which makes a big sound and then it flies back all wonky and such. I tried to nip this game in the bud, but apparently to no avail. A few days later I walked into E's room to check on him and a friend, only to find one of the dragonflies had come down in a fun game of Fling it Toward the Fan. What're you gonna do? ;)
Cora: This girl takes more and more steps each day. It's neat to watch her confidence grow with each step she takes. I love how both of these pictures are off balance. Happy and off balance... seems like a good reflection of our life.
Happy Week, friends! These are more phone pics. Need to try get my real camera out this week...
