"a portrait of each of my children, once each week, in 2015"
Cruz: You were such a good helper tonight, Cruz. You helped us set the table, you sat by Mila to help her find just the right Elmo video while Daddy and I prepared dinner, and you went back and forth to the kitchen counter, grabbing grapes for her while she watched Feist sing 1234 on Sesame Street. And then, to top it all off, you ate an entire taco without any coercing, a big feat for us at the dinner table. We were both so proud of you tonight!
Mila: You've been sleeping 12 hour nights here lately, and boy are we proud of you for that! Papa Curt watched you for a couple hours yesterday so we could go to church and listen to the teaching without working so hard to distract you. We didn't know how he'd do on his own, but I think you loved every minute of it. When we asked if you had fun, you yelled a big exuberant "Yeah!" He even changed a poopy diaper, a feat he hasn't conquered for at least a couple of decades! We were all pretty proud of papa, too!
