“A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2013.”
Lucy: bedtime routine with Daddy & Beasley.
I was busy packing clothes in our bedroom for Thanksgiving weekend and then I saw this quiet moment happening with my family and I wanted to freeze time forever (so I took a photo). We’ve been going through the “I’m-9-months-old-and-only-want-Mama-past-7PM” phase, so to see her melt in Daddy’s arms long enough for a story is the sweetest thing. And Beasley. Ahhh that sweet puppy cozies up on Lucy’s sheepskin every night during bedtime. The best.
As a kid, I kind of resented Thanksgiving for stealing my birthday thunder (I was born on Thanksgiving Day). Friends were never available for a birthday party, and as a picky kid eater, there wasn’t much on the Thanksgiving table that I really liked to eat. Pumpkin pie instead of birthday cake? Boo. My birthday landed on off days of Thanksgiving often enough, but it always just felt 2nd fiddle to the main event of the week. Nowadays, it’s become my favorite Holiday. Gathering around a table with family and friends, taking pause of all we have to be thankful for. Laughing in the kitchen. Watching football. The food (the food! the food! No picky eater here anymore!) Is it too early to already be looking forward to next year?
Also noteworthy news of the week… FIRST STEPS! Lucy is up to 6 whole steps on her own. This baby of ours… I tell ya…
This week I happily discovered Ali’s 52 photos over at The Beloved, they’re quite breathtaking!
