A portrait of my daughters every week in 2017

Big: came home from school one day this week and told me her best friend was coming over and they were watching Rapunzel and having a sleepover.   

Little: seems so much bigger lately.  Her cheeks are filling out and she finally is starting to develop little tiny rolls on her thighs.

There were a few too many photos to choose from this week so I just went for it.  

Big: has shown me today that she understands far more then I give her credit for.  The questions she asked about the march today, and the reasons behind it were too insightful for her young age. 

Little: is finally allowing me to wear her again in limited quantities.  She spent almost 2 hours in the carrier this afternoon, and although she didn’t quite love it she did far better than I expected.

Big: begged me to let her watch the baby while I made dinner, saying “please mama, I can take care of her”  She did a great job too.

Little: has decided she’s cranky as hell for those watching her while I’m at work this week.  Not cool kid, not cool.

I knew I wanted to do another year long photo project this year, but was debating between a 52 or 365.  Then I realized I have 4 year old and a 3 month old, I work part time and am alone with the kids the vast majority of their waking hours.  So 52 it is.  I haven’t picked up my real camera anywhere near often enough since this little was born and need a kick in the ass to do so.  Damn the iPhone camera for being so convent ant and sophisticated.  I’ve decided to also include a few choice moments from their weeks with their photos.  

Big: received her first pair of clip on earrings  today and declared she needed them to hear better since she lost her ear.

Little: has found her voice and is using it nonstop.  We’ve referred to her as a howling cat quite often as she seems to like screeching the most.
