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

Sofia: a pensive moment on the verandah after examining a leaf in great detail.
Otto: rolling up a storm.

Sofia is spending more time on the front verandah these days. Previously she could be relied upon to bolt down the stairs and off down the path, but now she is mostly content to run back and forth with her toy stroller or Otto's buzzy bee occasionally stopping to pluck leaves from the wisteria and geraniums.

Otto is enjoying the new view gained from rolling although there is great effort and frustration involved (especially when his sister regularly thwarts his attempts).

As Otto is a bit bigger and more robust now, I am getting more relaxed about Sofia inadvertently (or not) squishing him. So a bit of friendly wrestling is now on the cards:

Last week I loved the light in Bluebirds of Happiness' portraits.

Linking with the 52 Project at Che & Fidel.
