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

Rowan: you will spend a good hour rolling “silly pud” into tiny gumballs.

Leora: you are climbing on all of the furniture and opening all of the cabinets and drawers. Rowan thinks its hilarious and fully encourages these explorations.

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

Rowan: for some reason you call Trader Joe’s “Trader Jan’s” and I don’t even correct you because I love it so much.

Leora: each time we take Rowan to school you follow him to the art table, take a seat next to him, and start your own project.

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

Rowan: you asked me to buzz your hair (even though you’ve made it very clear that you want a completely shaven, cue ball cut. This was our compromise.) and totally freaked out half way through.

Leora: you’re saying so many words! I think I will always be amazed at how fast you and Rowan grow. I’m never ready for it.

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

Rowan: I’ve been reading about avalanches, mudslides, and meteors because those are the kind of things you want to talk about while I’m tucking you in at night.

Leora: you’re still meowing a bunch. As I type this, I can hear you loudly meowing instead of napping!

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

Rowan: always looking for treasures.

Leora: I noticed today that you have four teeth coming in (you’re very reluctant to let me have a peek in your mouth)! That explains all of the nursing and my sudden desire to wean.
