Letters to My Children – January 2020

Dear Ariya,

It’s a new year, and I think we’re all over this holiday vacation. My birthday was January 1st, and you all really wanted to make it special. Daddy was working so we decided to go have lunch for him at work. It was a nice day, I think you all were just ready to go back to school. We tried to go for a walk but Anika started fussing, and then Asha started fussing and you were so frustrated.

Not much happened this month at school. There was visitor’s day at ballet, where we could see all the hard work you’ve been putting in there. It was cute watching you dance and seeing all that you’ve learned.

I gave you and your sister a disposable camera, for Christmas and finally got those developed, so I thought I’d share a few of those. Also, I wanted to try a weekly portrait project, so you and Asha have become my main subjects for trying portrait photography, with backgrounds and lighting. Thanks Ariya!


Dear Asha,

The Christmas season was so exciting, but I think you were ready for (or needed) a routine. School couldn’t start soon enough. Other than getting back into a routine, not much was happening. You had a visitor day at ballet, and it was so sweet seeing you show off your moves. I enjoyed it thoroughly. At the Little Gym, you’re now 4, and one of the oldest in the class! You’re still enjoying it though. You also enjoyed taking photos on your OWN disposable camera.

Dear Anika,

You’re six months old! It kind of breaks my heart that you’re growing so fast. You’re so curious and always aware of everything going on around you. I have the hardest time nursing you with a cover, you’re constantly grabbing at it, wanting to see what’s going on around you.

You’re trying new foods! You’ve started with apple puree, and then pears and sweet potatoes, bananas, avocados and carrots and green beans. Of course you like the apples, pears and sweet potatoes best.

Here are some photos from your disposable cameras, along with our January.
