Today we have been fairly lazy, a late trip into the city for Pigeon Whole bread and the best doughnuts, and meat from our favourite butcher. A chicken is roasting in the Weber as I type. So there were limited opportunities for a new photo.
We often play this game just before we go to sleep. Rob and I will sit in bed and scroll back to a year ago on my phone camera roll. We giggle at how small the girls were. How we marvelled over the milestones of rolling over and sitting up. It never gets old does it? Watching your children grow up and change, and yet at the same time you realise they have been the same little characters all along. It is particularly meaningful to us given their rough start to life. I can still go back to those terrible gut-wrenching, heart-aching moments when we had to consider one or both of them dying in the NICU. I hope that we always treat every day with our daughters as a gift, no matter how tired we are, or how trying they are!
So I scrolled back in Lightroom to find these photos of the girls exactly a year ago.
The October #huttwins monthly portrait in black and white. Maggie on the left, Elisabeth on the right.
The girls on the play mat, Elisabeth in the foreground, Maggie at the back.
Thanks for indulging me in that trip down memory lane.
