A beautiful thing.

January 2nd, 2011

My firstborn turned twelve years old today.

What could be more predictable, more ordinary, than one year following upon another?

And what could be more astonishing, more miraculous?

    Crying big hot tears. Yes, yes, yes. Mundane and miraculous wound together in every single second. xox

    My firstborn turned thirteen today. I am the mother of a teenager. Gasp. I’ll let you know how the year goes.

  3. Absolutely lovely photos. Happy birthday to your firstborn—mine will be 10 on Saturday and my breath catches every time I turn the number—ten—over in my mind.

    The 2nd is my birthday too. But I have about 28 years on him! My mother also used to love planning bday parties for my sister (jan 10)and me right after the holidays.
