My children's feet

I have always had an obsession of capturing my kids hands and feet in photos.  I don't know why.  I guess for me its the clearest evidence that my kids are growing.  Faster than I prefer.  It's such a quandary.  I want them to grow up so they can dress themselves, to make their own juice, start their own movies, but in the same vein, I can't stand it that they are growing up.  I have included a photo of Davis' feet/foot in each of his yearly photo books.  I am now trying to do the same for Hanna.  Here is the latest from a joint bath session when I was trying to get baths done quickly (before leaving for somewhere we were supposed to be by a certain time).  Except on this particular day, I realized I had an opportunity.  I was easily distracted, grabbed my camera and caught this picture of their feet side by side since the light coming in the bathroom window happened to be really bright on that morning.


Davis is sick.  He has a fever.  He got up in the middle of the night last night and lost his dinner.  He has been able to keep liquids down since about 10 am today.  Tomorrow he turns 7.  It just doesn't seem right to be sick on your birthday.  Obviously, there are a lot of things that could be much worse, but I'm his mom and well, frankly, I don't ever want him to hurt.  I am hoping that whatever bug bit him, it only has staying power for 24 hours (or less).  Fingers crossed he will be over the hump with another night under his belt.  We have a roller skating party to go to tomorrow!

Feel better soon, Davis.  Want another popsicle?
