So, when L was five days old I set her down on our bed so she could fall asleep. When she did, I took her picture.
When we painted the purple wall I hung both girls' pictures plus a third frame, which holds a print I like, knowing that I'd one day want to stick a third face in there. I love the purple wall. I love the line of their infant faces.
So, when the boy turned five days old I set him down on our bed. I had my camera.
He wouldn't fall asleep.
