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

{ week eight : 8/52 }

kendi: your sweet little toes sticking out while you are nestled in for a long winter's nap // this week you did not sleep the best. you woke up frequently during the night, wanting to nurse more than the norm, and to be extra close, preferably in someone's arms. all signs are pointing to teething. your gums are swollen and i can feel your top two teeth are on the brink of cutting through. i have quickly learned that you want to be extra close during this time. most days you prefer being close, regardless, and wanting to be entertained and in the mix of what everyone else is doing, but when you are teething it seems you want to be even closer. and that, my darling, is perfectly okay. 

kaia: fresh out of the tub and wrapped in your favorite blanket // this week was eventful and one that left huge smiles on your face. you enjoyed school, playdates with friends, sledding with your cousin, visiting with our special friend from chicago, playing in ten inches of fresh snow that fell from the sky late in the week, and your saturday dance class.
