Saskia: While Félix naps it's the perfect time for you to paint. Your favourite subject, no surprises here, people: people with long hair, people with buttons on their jackets, people with arching eyebrows and earrings, people holding hands, people with their pets (cats, mice).
Félix: (Almost) 18 months. As an insta friend describes it, it's a brutiful age. So utterly adorable, so utterly frustrating.

Saskia: Your first CMAG on Sunday at 'Mummy's gallery'. It was such a delight to watch you, my own child, at work in the Studio and activity tables. Made my heart sing.
Félix: My sunshine, my rainbow.

Saskia: Happy mail day. She often talks about visiting her little cousin in New York, and going to 'Squares Time'.
Félix: Little dictator.

Saskia: Despite your outgoing, social nature, you are not actually much of a talker. I'm often left wondering what you are thinking. I don't suppose this will last long and the endless stream of questions will ensue.
Félix: All your Dada's family here.

Saskia: You gashed your face at childcare Friday afternoon and had a lengthy hospital visit, resulting in stitches as you were put under. The experience has come up in your play the last little while. It was so touching to hear you say to Dada the other day as you all played in the courtyard, 'And Foxy better be careful. We don't want to go to the hopsital. I wouldn't want that for Foxy'.
Félix: Chatterbox pout.

Saskia: I adore your concentration when painting. Your creativity is flourishing right now; you often choose to paint or draw, and as you work you will tell me who you will be gifting your art to.
Félix: Anything loud, clanging and banging is King. No surprises there.

Saskia: You are determined to swing yourself, madly pumping in your legs trying to find the rhythm. You're learning quickly, my little girl.
Félix: You have (all of a sudden) discovered the magic of books. Brown Bear by Eric Carle is a clear favourite/obsession. You tap the book and 'sing' the rhyme that JanMa taught you.
