"a portrait of my children once a week, every week, in 2014"

{ week six : 6/52 }

kaia: we took a trip to the global market week, where you indulged in a basket of homemade cut french fries. in your words, "fries are your most delicious, most favorite, thing to eat." and that is certainly the truth. you would eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner if you would let you, but we know that wouldn't be the healthiest thing to do. so when you get to eat them, you take your time, savoring every bite until your little tummy has had enough and you tell us that you are full. it is quite a treat just to watch you eat them.

kendi: i wish i could stop the minutes from ticking and the hours from passing and the days from changing, because you, my love, are growing way too fast for your mama. these past three weeks especially. you are learning how to sit up and getting stronger by the day. in fact, at the end of this week + the beginning of another, you sat along for five minutes without any supports. those milestone moments are something to celebrate and i remind myself of that when i find my heart mourning over those newborn baby days.
