Today I decided to start off the 52 Project while you were playing on the deck having your snack. We spend most of our playtime outside these days. Both of you chant “Shoushide? Shoushide?” before we are even done with breakfast.
Watermelon is a big hit right now with you Cody…
Avett, you are getting over a brutal cough right now and begged for yogurt at the refrigerator. You are intently working on mastering your “spoon skills”.
Both of you are both obsessed with rocks right now. You collect them in a bucket from the yard and driveway, throw them into the kiddie pool, and will hold onto them for hours at a time. Cody was playing with one on the porch today…I love this of your sweet little belly button!
While I’ve had the camera out a lot in the last two years I truly feel like it is never going to be enough. Each day brings a flood of precious moments with these sweet kids that I feel like I can never possibly come close to capturing all of the reasons in a day that I feel lucky to be their mother. I cannot believe I am celebrating Avett and Cody’s 2nd birthday. I’ve thought long and hard about what to do for them for their birthday this year. We REALLY don’t need any more toys…especially since a mixing bowl and a spatula are all they really need to be happy. So, I’m going to try to do something a bit more personal…something that will tell them a little more about their mother and hopefully capture some of their precious and fleeting childhood memories. Every week I am going to get out the camera and take some portraits that capture a day in the life of our little family. Happy second birthday to the funniest, sweetest, cuddliest little two year olds I know. You are loved more than you can possibly imagine and joy follows you everywhere.
