The 52 Project, photos 25/52: Beany: “Mommy, I’m up on the tippy tippy top! I knew I could do it!” Bear: “Play, please? Come play!” XO, Katrina
The 52 Project, photos 21/52: Bear: The neatest little ice-cream eater there ever was. At least for 2 years old. Beany: Phone chats with Uncle Spencer while walking to dinner. What a city kid.
The 52 Project, photos 20/52: Beany: The obvious response to, “Do your best fashion pose.” Bear: After-bath snuggles with Charlie Brown and Linus. XO, Katrina
The 52 Project, photos 15/52: Beany: In her very first nightgown, which brought more joy to that 4-year-old girl than I ever could have imagined. “I just can’t believe I get to sleep in my nightgown — this is so exciting,” she whispered while we tucked her into bed. Talk about finding joy in the simple things….

The 52 Project, 12/52: Beany: This photo reminds me so much of this one from my first year doing The 52 Project. Of course, she looks so much older now, but that sweet face is still the same. Bear: Smiling so big that his little nose crinkles, just like his sister’s. XO, Katrina
The 52 Project, 11/52: Bear: New dinosaur sheets for the birthday boy. He now roars himself to sleep at night. “Siasaur! Siasaur! Roooooar!” Beany: Morning light and a sweet, sleepy Bean. XO, Katrina
The 52 Project, 10/52: Beany: Browsing the halls of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. She loves it so much, which makes me love it so much more. She’s named several of the sculptures we pass on the walk to her art class, so now every time we go back, we swing by to say hello…
The 52 Project, 8/52: Bear: The older he gets, the more we see the strong-willed little boy he’s becoming. He wants to do everything his sister does — he just doesn’t want her telling him how to do it. So he’ll happily watch as she jumps and squeals and splashes in puddles. Then when he…
The 52 Project, 7/52: Bear: Look at this guy, with a face so sweet I almost forgot the long stripe of blue crayon that ended up on the arm of the white chair seconds after I took this photo. Almost. Beany: She’s been the queen of expressions since she was barely a week old, but look at this teenager face!…
