Matched Set

Twelve years ago, just eight weeks apart, my sister and I each gave birth to a baby boy.  That summer, we took them to get their picture made together.
This summer, just steps way from the place on the wall where that picture hangs, they lay on the floor at their grandparent's house and played a game with one another.
As for me, I wonder how it is that 10 pounds of baby has become faster, louder, and taller than me.  Wherever the time has gone?
