Joining Jodi's 52 Project with "A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014."

Sebastian | Won't let me cut his hair because he says he likes it long (I'm working on the, "But it still needs a trim" approach). He just recovered from a scary tussle with croup, which jolted him out of bed on Friday night, hardly able to breath. It was pretty terrifying, but we got it a little bit under control by talking to him calmly and taking him outside immediately to breath the cold night air—the #1 thing to do, fyi, if this happens to your child. Cody then walked him to the hospital where they gave him some medicine and sent him home less than 2 hours later in tip top shape. Throughout all of it, he still spoke to us mostly in German. Because croup is highly contagious, we kept him home from Kindy on Monday and Tuesday. A little longer than necessary, but we wanted to be sure that he wouldn't pass it to any other kids. Cody has been holed up in the library finishing his thesis, so I've had full days with Seb and Bruno. Cody comes home at 5, though, and I get a nice break and time to workout! There is something so refreshing about routine, even if it's a demanding one.

Bruno | Hiding behind the (sheer) curtains. Finding any reason to laugh hysterically and make a joke out of everything. Since Seb was back at Kindy today, Bruno was at a bit of a loss as to what to do after 4 full days at home with big brother, but he was a champ and played by himself nearly all morning. Occasionally, in a streak of rebellion, he would sneak out into the hallway to try to find some people more lively and entertaining than myself.
