And here is my take on another one of Heidi Swapp’s memory file creations.
This one belongs to Matthias — baby A, my other first born.
I feel the same about the pictures I chose here as I do about the ones in Graham’s album — I might not have used them. I definitely wouldn’t have used them all together. I just how they tell the story of who Matthias is — and each of them are needed to make it complete. All 35 of them.
In the picture below there is a red arrow — it’s pointing to the fact that is is actually pushing his brother to get a good start in the Fun Run. He says it’s much more fun if you actually do well. Ha.
And there you have it - baby A - there’s no nutshell for him. You can’t confine this child. My all out, confident, competitive, physical touch, adventurous, empathetic, lover of new things boy.
I tell myself that someday — when I’m not here to tell them anymore — they will be able to read what I’ve written and know how dearly they are loved.
