Conversations with Leo

How fun is a three year old?!
And also how infuriating, how intriguing, how clever, how energetic, how frustrating etc etc.

Leo is full of imagination, often in his own little world having conversations with his cars and toys and making up stories. For the fourth day in a row now, I am "mama horsey" and he is "farmer" and the day starts with "horsies... I'm getting up now to go and work in the barn". Funny little thing.
His language amazes me and I've started writing things down so that I don't forget them and recording conversations we have.
It has taken me only five months to put this one from Christmas together and post it. Thought I'd share it here. It's incredible how much he has changed in the time since then and his language is so much more complex. But I'd better start at the start.
Happy Chrimmas!

A portrait of my children, each week, every week in 2014

Leo: A gift of a kaleidoscope provided some pretty funny photo opportunities as I tried to teach him how to use it. 

Anouk: This little cherub just melts my heart. Not sure how I made it into this week's portrait, but anyway... hello!

A portrait of my children, each week, every week (well, almost) in 2014

Leo: He's becoming such a little entertainer with a vivid imagination, always with a story or a performance or a game. And always trying to rope me in as one of his characters. 

Anouk: While Leo and I play, she sleeps. Always sleeping. I got super lucky with her! (you might have seen another version of this photo on instagram).
