Now We Are Six

When I was one,
I had just begun.
When I was two,
I was nearly new.
When I was three,
I was hardly me.
When I was four,
I was not much more.
When I was five,
I was just alive.
But now I am six,
I’m as clever as clever.
So I think I’ll be six
now and forever.

On October 9, my babies, George and Eleanor turned six. I know! It’s been an entire month. I expect my mommy blogger license to be revoked any day now…

But day of, or one month later – they are SIX. And I’m looking at these amazing humans with complex ideas and gaps where baby teeth used to be and I still see babies…toddlers…not-yet-six-year-olds…









Kind of a random Halloween shot – but it cracks me up.

And these two keep me laughing pretty much all day long. I don’t know what I’d do without them…

Happy (belated blog post) birthday George and Eleanor! I love you to pieces!

    Oh my god this post made me tear up! I can’t believe how grown up they are!!! Love all these pictures and that poem. What a sweet post. And kinda like wedding presents, you have a whole year to do it – so really, you’re 11 months early. Or something. Glad to see a new post on your site – I miss you! On that note – see you in just a few weeks! YAY!

    The time goes by SO freakishly fast. It seems like just 20 minutes ago I was reading posts about your twin toddlers. What happens when the children all go to college? What kind of bloggers will we be then?

    Loved every photograph, Kate. Thank you for sharing. You’re a wonderful mother to beautiful children. Happy Birthday, George and Eleanor!

    (The Halloween picture and grocery list are AWESOME.)
