Nine months old in lederhosen. Because, lederhosen. Thanks Oma and Opa!

SiGuy and Huddy came to visit! Can’t believe Wesley & SIlas are almost a year old! :)
Accidentally matching at the zoo, standing in line for coffee, thrilling ourselves with horses on sticks that go round and round.

Adulthood, round 2.
There are so many things
you could be and do -
so many you have done and been.
I can see you a famous writer,
or a well-known picture-taker,
or another path - but always fighter.
Courageous, honest, smile-maker.
Wherever you take me, I will go.
Wherever you work, I will assist.
You are brilliant and brave, you know.
(And impossible to resist).
Be it Spain or outer space,
a new home, new state, new child,
whether we replace inventions
or reinvent our place,
I will be with you
and it will be worthwhile
Finally, a reason to like Valentine’s Day <3
After the earth
has shed its skin,
I will roam its raw rebirth.
Step over steppe,
touch over tundra,
walk along waters.
I will find no death,
no silent killers of souls -
every culture, every country holds.
Day two of being stuck inside on our own… we made the best of it.
When her fire is burnt out
and in this cold taxi
and with this cold distance
I have no heat left to give her,
Today we woke up to our first storm of 2019. Snow came for the first time and your dad left on a trip for the first time since you were born — giving us a lot to think about. The day was a little adventurous but mostly it was a lot less warm.
I took you outside and set you down and you got real quiet like the snow. You smiled a little but only at first. Then we watched everything be still. Then you looked so serious about it, I had to tell you it wouldn’t stay that way.
Snow melts, and he’ll be back.
