The hand project VII: family matters


De nuevo en la casilla de salida, mis amigos N&N, luchan por sobrevivir a las noches en vela, los biberones y las frutas. Hasta el momento vivíamos en la misma pantalla del videojuego, con niñas de la misma edad y ahora, mientras nosotros avanzamos hacia el siguiente nivel, ellos deben repetir parte del camino.

Back to the starting line, my friends N&N are fighting against non-sleep nights, milk bottles and the first fruit feeds. Up until now they were walking along with us, with kids of similar age. But now, as we are reaching the next game level they must rewalk the path.

S es cinco años mayor que su hermana. Hace unos días N me comentaba que cuando hay ese salto de edad crees que las diferencias van a ser muchas, en todos los niveles. Pero ¡qué equivocada estaba! A, es exactamente igual a su hermana. Jamás he visto ese parecido entre hermanas que no eran gemelas.

S is five years older than her baby sister. A few days back N said to me she expected them to be completely different, considering the age gap. However she couldn't have been more wrong. A looks exactly like her older sister. I've never seen such a thing before. They look like twins, five years apart.

Loving those pairings. It's always nice to have the photo and to see then how the character of the person is shown in the drawing.
