Hannah had her twins! The c-section went great and I was able to be in the OR to photograph. They are beautiful and she named them Brody and McKay. They were 5'13" and 6'14". I will post some photos this week!
A Sunday afternoon on the swings
The music of my life is slow, emphatic, while the wind always blows their hair. Then the day's gone, the city gets quiet and little girls sleep. The dark comes and reminds me that good days always end. I shiver, but what can I do about time? Change it, stop it? Can't. I can only watch as it plods on at a maniacal pace, jeering at me over its ridiculous shoulder. I cling to it because I only want to hang on, to experience everything with tears streaming and this unshakable, regretful panic. I wouldn't be a mother without it.
To others, we're just another anthill, just another family, trying to make something of ourselves. But to me, TO ME, my life is a fountain of unbridled love and building castles and flying through the sky. It's a pool of emotion so deep my head squirms under the mass. There's electrical currents and unearthly tides. It's the earnestness in their eyes. I can't look away, I can see a million years in them.
To my girls, my family. You are so, so, so important to me. Let's spread this love around the world forever.
