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

Sofia: budding gourmand or koala impersonator?
Otto: finding his feet.

Thursday was Sofia's 2.5 "birthday" so we marked the occasion with the unveiling of a play kitchen. I have been tossing around ideas for a DIY kitchen for a while now, but last month I admitted to myself that it wasn't going to happen any time soon and I ordered one. I am glad I did as it has been an instant hit with both the kids. Sofia has mostly been washing up(!) with a bit of cooking on the side. Otto has been using the kitchen to cruise and he loves to open and shut the oven/cupboard. This last week has been a bit rough with fevers and coughs all around (plus an ear infection for my littlest one) so the new addition has provided a welcome distraction.

A favourite from last week was this shadow shot.

  1. They look so pleased! have a great week :)

  2. the toy kitchen is about the best toy ever. i found one at a garage sale about 9 months ago and have been congratulating myself ever since. hands down it's my kid's favourite toy.
    enjoy yours! i'm sure you'll get lots of love out of it!

  3. The kitchen looks fab - we still have an old one out in the cubby that is well loved and still frequently used
    They both have those rosy viral cheeks don't they - hope they're on the mend soon

    ps - our vegie box is from Hilbarn which we get fortnightly - loving the variety and the convenience
