LUCY / this weekend she turned eight, this particular image made me emotional as it encapsulates who she is and how she experiences the world. She is the wind, she is a sage, she knows things beyond this life, she breathes in the freedom of it all. I am truly blessed to mother her.

ANAïS / meeting the saltwater for the first time and enjoying its cold gentle kisses on her toes, then legs and soon bottom. She is power, she is the balance to Lucy’s contemplative ways, she is a joy and brightness. Her laughter is what we all work for, she now gives precious flying kisses, loves to play peek a boo and makes the cutest face when you ask her to close her eyes. Her presence has taught me about my own inner workings and I am thankful she calls me Momma.

LUCY /occupying some downtime with Princess the Donkey while celebrating her dearest most beloved best friend’s birthday. When it comes to certain creatures she is akin to a whisperer of sorts.

ANAïS / excited and cautious about meeting a few horses, the moment they leave she wants them back but upon return she is highly unsure of their motives.

Thankful to get a few images up so that I am up to date on this weekly commitment. Its been a whirlwind these past few days and the last of our visitors left tonite leaving us to get back into our normal rhythm sans cakes and late night slumber party talks. It also has been a beautiful reminder of the dynamic bond between these two girls. Their love is all encompassing.

LUCY / relishing the warmth of the rocks while her sister always finds a way to maintain direct contact with her.

ANAïS / wearing the exact dress that both her sister and I wore for our first birthdays, one of my favorite first birthday traditions.

LUCY / with the biggest chocolate bunny she has ever met, his eyes were the first to go.

ANAïS / exploring the stem of a pear she found in her spring basket wearing her Sunday’s best.

LUCY / sometimes daydreaming is frustratingly interrupted by me trying to catch a moment of perfection. I am assuming the two of us are the only ones who can see the attitude in her gesture.

ANAïS / her 3am wakings wanting to play are surely catching up with her as she takes a 2 hour nap at 9 in the morning. She is either a party animal or cutting another tooth, we have yet to determine which.

LUCY / got to run wild and free and create some of her own adventures this week including: falling into a cold pond, stomping through wetlands, climbing fences-trees-and-rocks

ANAïS / learning the skill of taking things out and putting them back in, especially fond of putting lids back on boxes. She is saying “dad” about 100x a day even when they are in the same room. 

ME / trying to retrain my eye, working on leaving the wedding photographer behind in hopes that I know longer follow the safe formula. I’ve been carrying my film camera with me most days but am finding it hard to finish a roll every week.

LUCY / her hair caught in plum blossoms on one of our daily walks, her little turned up nose is every bit of my delight.

ANAïS / she ate spring- twig, blossom and whatever else she could managed to get her pudgy hands on, she started walking this week fearlessly taking 7 steps her first go.

LUCY / spring has followed us indoors in forms of faerie flower rings, masks made of flowers and in almost any vessel that can contain blossoms. The wild has now returned and she can now breathe a sigh of relief that the world is again her oyster- thank you, spring! 

ANAïS / her world is complicated by endless teething, a limited vocabulary and the fact that being in close proximity to mom is just not close enough.

LUCY / she moves about this world with grace and an intensity that is fueled by the earth beneath her feet. She is an explorer, an adventurer, a nature lover and shows us a new world through her beautiful way of seeing. 

ANAÏS / discovering the art of rock throwing and the feel of sand between her fingers, hypnotized by the glistening water and the sounds of the birds flying overhead. Coincidentally wearing tones that resemble our pebble beach.

Lucy / reading me a bedtime story while I put the baby down for the night, I am really loving the way she emotes when she reads now. 

Anaïs / spending the morning playing on her big sister’s bed listening to music, fascinated by the lights and canopy.
