A great four-generation photo! Thanks for sharing it. Happy New Year to all of you.
Yup, it was my son’s first xmas…(yah, that’s me there, with him on my lap). And the fact that he is, indeed cutting his first teeth already makes me feel he’s growing up so fast…he strains to be free of my hold (even while he hangs on), wanting to be mobile, to be more dexterous, to be more independent. Already he yearns to move forward into the world. And already I yearn to keep him my baby.
I love that picture. I cry instantly at the lyrics of the song and hear Judy Collins on my old album singing it. My daughter who looked like that baby yesterday is now almost fifteen and introduced me to Eva Cassidy. How beautiful her music is. Thank you for the moving post and comments.
Happy New Year, Elaine! Nice family photo.
