"A portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2014"
Elly- With eyes full of wonder and light of your ever expanding world, you stayed close to me. Close enough to take in your breath, and steal kisses whenever I pleased. Teething caused you to need this closeness more than ever this week, and it reminded me that you're still my baby, even though you can crawl and explore on your own now. I will cherish these moments, where I can still carry you, safely tucked under my chin, my skin softly melting into yours as we walk through this world as one.
"Life was meant to be lived, and curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life."
