eleanor finished her first year of pre-k today. what a year it has been! she's wearing nightgowns to bed now, she asks for scented lotion after her bath, has her own chapstick, she sounds out words, can recognize nearly the entire alphabet and numbers, and has graduated to drawing pictures of actual things. and just for juxtaposition and because as her mama i sometimes miss my baby girl, i rocked her to sleep tonight.

f: this kid and his donut with "spwinkewls". i swear we couldn't get to the park fast enough for him to tear into it and then when he sat in front of it he just stared adoringly for a few minutes before diving in. he kills me.

e: my girl has outgrown the swings. she is looking so much bigger and older to me lately.

a very happy little boy caught after throwing a ball right at mama's head. man he's got good aim.

eleanor: every saturday stijn packs a lunch and brings the kids to the shop to visit mama. yesterday's weather was perfect so they ran and played in the parking lot for a few hours. since the super bowl, eleanor has been saying, "i'm going to run like a girl." yesterday she took off towards me with this look of pure joy running as fast as she could, arms pumping, and hair blowing.

felix: he's been all sorts of two years old lately and it hasn't been the easiest but then he puts on a lion hat and roars through a smile and i just can't...
