A portrait of my child once a week, every week, in 2013.
We have been vacationing in Colorado this week and enjoying every beautiful nook and cranny we can find. On Thursday, my parents took us on a short road trip to Hanging Lake trail near Glenwood Springs. It was a challenging hike for a novice and we started it right around Ed's nap time. With him strapped to my back like a little monkey in our Ergo, we worked our way to the top as he slept on and off. Every one else in our party offered several times to take a shift carrying Eddy but I just kept on chugging. Maybe it's having carried him in my belly and then pushing him out but I feel a very we're in this together spirit with this tiny human.
Papa started the hike down with him in tow but after fussing a bit, I put him back on and off to sleep he drifted again.
This week's photo was snapped by Papa with his phone.
