43/52: a portrait project



Poppy/ you dream of being a mermaid and a fairy. In the afternoon light, dressed in yellow, singing to me about a mermaid swimming in the sea while I ironed fabric to sew, I saw my own childhood dreams in your eyes. They are indeed now your own. You have such a great imagination, may you never lose it. 

Tully/ 10 months old, still teething. I watched you sleep so peacefully with those rosy cheeks. I pray those gums stop hurting, all those teeth coming through at once. You're growing so quickly that I catch my breath that soon you'll be running after your sister and those hours of holding you as you fall asleep will be over.

Siblings/ waiting for the bath to fill, you camped out on my bed and had your own little conversation. It was such a sweet moment.
