I’m sort of distraught… sitting here trying to think of what to write. I just can’t believe this is the last of our weekly pictures. I can’t believe they’re going to be 1 this weekend. I feel like I’m writing a eulogy, because these pictures have been a staple of our week; something to look forward to (and sometimes dread). Looking at the early weeks of their lives, it seems like a lifetime ago… like I barely remember those little wrinkly, red, peach-fuzz-covered faces. And yet it seems like just yesterday I was sitting in the hospital, memorizing their faces, counting their eyelashes, tracing their baby feet.
At each stage of the last year, I felt just sure that ‘this is my favorite stage in their babyhood’. But then the next would come along, and take over as my very favorite. Yet somehow desperately missing the previous stages. Am I so silly for putting this much thought into it?
I’m planning to take monthly photos from here on out, so you have that to look forward to… the first Friday of each month. Until further notice, that is. I’m not going to be bribing my teenage girls to scrunch themselves into this puny $4 orange thrift store chair 15 years from now.
