Documenting 2015: 4/12

Brother & Sister: Chasing each other and laughing like crazy. 
There’s never a dull moment with these two around
Olivia: Sunbathing on the grass after endless hours of playing and running around looking for flowers to pick
Vale: His first pic nic, followed by a very long afternoon nap.
April is, and always will be, my favourite month of the year (and also my birthday month!). We spent a lot of time outdoor enjoying the glorious weather, playing at the park, eating ice cream and picking wild flowers. Loving the longer days and making up excuses for going to bed a little late.

I will be documenting 2015 through monthly portraits of my little ones. You can check the previous months here.

 Brother & Sister: Playing together looks more like a wrestling match than anything else
 Olivia: Celebrating spring at the park; chasing bubbles, wearing a flowery dress and no coat, because you know…it’s spring!
Vale: making the most funniest faces and sounds. Crawling like a pro and learning to stand by pulling himself up in his crib

We have been literally counting the days ’till spring this month. We had strawberries, fresh flowers and enjoyed our daily strolls around the neighbourhood. Ice cream shops are back in business and we are making sure we visit one almost every day!

Brother & Sister: Playing and reading books together. It doesn’t usually last very long, but it’s a joy when it happens
Olivia: Recovering from a long period of colds and flu, but always up for a family trip to the playground
Vale: so loud and cheerful
February was short and bitter. We spent most of our days inside, playing games and getting bored at times. We made fresh orange juice daily, we watched tv, we fell asleep on the couch, we got dressed up for carnival. But mostly we laughed together.

Documenting 2015: 1/12

Brother & Sister: watching tv while mama cooks dinner has become one of their favourite things to do together. And so far they have not been fighting over what to watch. 

 Over the past two years I have been joining the 52 project, documenting the life of my little lady through weekly portraits. At the end of the year I ended up with 52 pictures and some funny facts about her life (you can check the past weekly photos here), and all of it was printed into a mini book that we also used as a present for our families (you check the one for 2013 here). I love those so much and once in a while my not-so-little-anymore likes to go through the books and likes to ask about all the stories behind each picture. Since my handsome boy joined our family last August, I had the intention of carrying out as the previous years, by taking a weekly picture of both my kids. And then I realised life gets a little bit more complicated with two little people around. I still tend to take tons of photos of them each week with my phone, but the quantity doesn’t always mean quality and also sharing part has proven to be much more difficult than expected. So this year I will just be showing monthly portraits of my littles and, whenever possible, I will be trying to add a portrait of them together; it will be fun to see how their relationship and the way they interact with each other will change in a year. Let’s start with January.

Olivia: Having the time of her life at the playground. She had been asking to go for days and had been not so patiently waiting for the weekend to come.

Vale: Getting accustomed to the high chair a few days before starting to eat solid.
