ethan: you returned home from cub camp tired & grumpy & argumentative.  we let this bother us & we all bickered instead of letting you decompress.  you needed to be on your own, to relax, to be 9.  the beach worked wonders, i’m sorry your dad & i didn’t give you enough space yesterday, we will try harder xx


nixon: those eyelashes.  a hard week. up for hours at night, nose and eyes running but always in the best of moods, you are the sweetest baby {in a non-huggy, non-snuggly kind of way}.  your big brother adores you and instantly forgets his complaints/attitude/frustrations when he holds you.  he is holding you a lot lately now that i think about it!
