WEDNESDAY

We woke unusually early so I could rush to photograph a home birth, and after all of the excitement of the morning I felt the woods calling us. The girls are completely in their element outside, and it always leaves me wondering why we have so much stuff in the first place—they don’t need it. Edie hiked the entire two hours on her own two feet, only pausing halfway to climb a playground of large boulders alongside her sister, who I unclicked from my carrier for some leg stretching, too. These are the moments of motherhood I will hold onto all my life—the ones in which I was not trying too hard or thinking too much. We just walked, sometimes holding hands and sometimes quietly on our own.
