Saskia: We're keeping your cheeky nudie rudie photo to ourselves for this week's portrait.
Félix: I can only hope that I won't ever forget how deliciously soft your baby skin feels.

Saskia: You were so excited to go on the big 'round and round' at Floriade that I forgot about my fear of heights…until we were caged in and on our way up.
Félix: You, my little boy, eat everything that is put in front of you. I am delighted to prepare and cook meals to nourish you…but it's a full time job at the rate you eat.

Saskia: Mid sentence. I can't remember exactly what you were saying here but you were requesting that I join in on your imaginary game. I think I was supposed to play the trumpet on the stick.
Félix: Wearing the sailor romper that your sister wore (sent my Aunty Mimi) all those moons ago…

Saskia: I heard you talking more than usual in quiet time the other day. You were chatting to your school friends, choosing books for them to read, singing songs, and doing a very convincing job of playing teacher. Oh dear.
Félix: You visited your Vovo's resting place for the first time on Father's Day. We always say how much you look like him.

Saskia: Garden fairy 'helping' to do some 'weeding'. Lucky succulents are so forgiving of toddlers' enthusiastic efforts.
Félix: Little Fox is a constant companion at the dinner table. He's always been a favourite.

Saskia: Most days you will ask, hopefully, Today I go to ballet stool? 
Félix: Content. Come 3pm on a warm, sunny day, this corner of the balcony is the sweet spot.
