"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013."

Sofia: loves to help collect the eggs.
Otto: Rubenesque. 

Most days Sofia helps collect the eggs from our two chooks. "Egg, egg, EGG!". Just after this photo was taken, I handed her the other egg (one of our chooks, lays in the chook house, the other in a spot near the fence which Sofia can access more easily) and she delighted in having two by smashing them together. So only one made it back to the kitchen intact to be wiped, dated and placed in a carton in the fridge. Oh well, there will be another two tomorrow and an opportunity to practise gentle hands.

I am not sure how often the adjective Rubenesque is used to describe a (boy) baby, but Otto is all luscious curves so it seems apt. I remember that Sofia used to have little skinny legs (we called them froggy) and I think they were the last thing to flesh out. Otto's calves (and thighs) are splendid in their size and squishiness.

Linking with the 52 Project at Che & Fidel.
