34/52

A portrait of my child once a week, every week, in 2013.


I posted this picture on Instagram a few days ago and already had a different photo from my DSLR flagged as the one to use for this week's 52 photo but this one turned out to be my favorite of the week.

Eddy woke up from his nap on Friday and I scooped him up to sit in my lap as I do most days. I was wearing a Mexican dress with bright embroidery on it and still fuzzy from his sleep, he sat and named all the colors over and over again. I confirmed every color he said - if you don't repeat it back then they don't know you heard them - and studied his little lips as he worked on each word. That little post-nap peace is just the break I need from the frenzied work that happens while he sleeps.

  3. They seem just that bit younger when they sleep and first wake. As if they relax and that a moment to ponder the softness of being a baby
