Maggie and Ian are visiting this week, for the first time since the wedding in October.
In October, they looked like kids.
Maggie’s grown about 4 inches. She’s nearly 14, and she looks 17.
Ian’s grown at least 4 inches, and possibly as much as 6. He’s lanky and his voice is changing, cracking back and forth between the kid-voice I know and a deeper near-baritone. He’s 12, and is taller than his sister.
Only seeing them a couple of times a year really makes the changes stark.
