"Joining Jodi's 52 Project with "A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014."
Sebastian | This is his last portrait as a 3-year-old. Every week he grows up in new ways. We've hit a sweet spot with him, and we couldn't be having more fun. Each age with him is my new favorite. Currently he walks or bikes nearly everywhere, uses German words we've never heard of (but that seem right), is obsessed with eating almond butter on bananas, bread, and if he's lucky, from a spoon. I bought him a set of 2 tanks from H&M the other day and regardless of the temps that's all he wants to wear. Just a minute ago he came up and asked, "Mama darf Ich dein Handy ausborgen? Ich möchte Dada anrufen, weil ich will draußen in diesem Kreis mit Gras spielen."* He's already asking to borrow my phone, guys!
Bruno | A few days ago Cody said, "You know, Bruno could conceivably tell people when he's older that his first language was German!" Maybe not quite, but as his verbal skills increase, we are hearing far more German than English. It's what he hears the majority of the time, so it makes sense. And let's face it, he's got to keep up on the hip Kindy lingo his brother teaches him. Kids these days.
*"Mama may I borrow your phone? I would like to call Dada because I want to play outside in that circle with grass."
