"a portrait of each of my children, once each week, in 2016"
Cruz: You started swimming lessons with Jacob again today and I had forgotten how much fun it is to watch you learn from him. You retained all your skills from last year and we both commented on how well you listened today. You love the water and I have a feeling you are going to learn loads this summer.
Mila: We beat the heat with lots of trips to pool this weekend, but poor daddy stayed home to build you and your brother a pretty wonderful swing set. You love climbing the ladder, going down the slide, and taking our orders at the little snack shop. You say "whatchyouwant?" over and over again and pretend to write notes on your little Elmo pad. I foresee many afternoons and nights on our own backyard play place.
