“A portrait of my family, once a week, every week, in 2017.”

Rowan: you gifted me beautiful leaves for Mother’s Day.

Leora: you love to pick out your clothes and change them often. You love trying on shoes, wearing hats or anything you can put on your head, wearing my wedding ring, and trying on Papa’s watch.

“A portrait of my family, once a week, every week, in 2017.”

Rowan: you let me know what Leora is saying and thinking. Most of the time you’re right. Other times you use it to your advantage, for example, “I think she said she’s done with her smoothie (so you get to finish it).”

Leora: you’re saying so many new words! Love you, Ro Ro, thank you, and diapey.

“A portrait of my family, once a week, every week, in 2017.”

Rowan: we just returned from the beach and you couldn’t get enough of the sand and ocean. You brought a shell to school and couldn’t wait to give it to your teacher saying, “It’s all for you!”

Leora: you tried to say both broccoli and tushy today.
