“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014.”
This week, we are all reaching for what comforts us most. For the kids, it’s their favorite friends…”baby” for Marie, and “teddy” for Henry. Teddy is well loved-he was mine as a child, and the fact that Henry loves him so much is very special for me. Marie received baby at Christmas, and has since carried her around everywhere we go. After Henry showed so much interest in her baby, we got him one as well…which she very quickly commandeered. So, she is now (quite appropriately and hilariously) the mother of two babies. It’s been an emotional week…with a mix of tears and smiles. Even at such a young age (18 months), the kids are missing Billy and knowing that something happened. They keep us busy and smiling though, and we’re so thankful for their innocent exuberance. It is a constant reminder to celebrate life.
