Dahlia and Milana have really hit their stride. They play together almost all the time now and Milana is learning so much from imitating (and forced learning - Dahlia is a hard task-master) her big sister.
Nothing unusual about two sisters playing together except there wasn't very much of that happening around here for the first year and even two. But they're certainly making up for any lost time. And it's so much fun for me to just sit back and watch and listen to all their escapades.

How does the song go?
"So this is Christmas....and what have we done
another year older....a new one begun"
What is it about flipping a calendar that makes us look back and measure the year we've been through? Did we start, accomplish or even attempt all the things we wanted to? Did we have an impact, or any effect at all, on how our world moved and changed this year?
Did we love enough.....listen enough.....give enough?
And what makes us always strive for a bit more with each new year. Never quite satisfied that we made the mark or had any relevance in this crazy world that manages to stay together despite every element working against it.
(I don't have the answers.....I'm just thinking out loud.)
...this was a watershed year.
I fell in love with my work - my photography. And though it doesn't have the same satisfaction as painting for me (or even music) it surprises me how much joy and satifaction I get out of every shoot and every picture that I take.
The deep joy I have being a mother can never be surpassed - I will be forever grateful and amazed that I am a mother. My Dahlia asked me today "what's the best thing about being a mom, Mom"? I have no answer because it's a million things - too many to count but just enough to truly appreciate
Wishing everyone a perfectly wonderful New Year!!!
