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

the 52 project: 37/52.

[52 project participants who inspired me last week: Patchwork Cactus, Megan Ambrose, we stood together, The view from here, piper and poppies, Lamb Loves Fox, and of course, Che and Fidel]


Being two is a pretty great age to be in life. Inspired by the family who created "Olive Us", I've been reflecting on Gracie's days and think she's doing a pretty good job of being a two year old. She excels at playing, eating, running everywhere in a hurry, making lego pieces into imaginary cookies, transforming a pile of sand into pasta with cheese and of course, napping (after a little cuddle and 10 different versions of ABC, Row Row Boat or Twinkle Twinkle).

The family who make Olive Us TV have six kids (!) and they're really fun to watch. Here's a little blurb from their website explaining what it's all about:

Olive Us is a weekly video series created by Ben and Gabrielle Blair featuring their six kids... The series is made up of short episodes (typically 2 to 5 minutes) and showcases values we care about like working hard, being kind, helping each other, being creative, problem solving and staying positive even when frustrating things happen. Our family relationships aren't perfect, but we hope by modeling positive examples in the videos that it will help us practice better relationships in real life. 

Here is one of our favourite Olive Us videos - watch it if you want to smile for days!

Video by "Olive Us" tv - so awesome! 

And finally, as any two year old worth her salt is supposed to do, a photo of Gracie who went from jubilant (above) to slightly grumpy, signalling the arrival of nap time:

Cuddle time.
