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

This week I couldn't go past a pair of chubby baby legs in his gorgeous boy tights. Whilst we still get some strange looks when he wears them out, I can instantly tell how comfortable he is as soon as they're on. Especially for a toddler who is always on the move; climbing, running, jumping, exploring...they are the perfect combination of fun and comfort!

Love this portrait from last week. x

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

I often find him exploring little corners of the house. Sometimes I'll hear a "Where's Atticus?"coming from behind a bookshelf or chair. I proceed to go and look for him, calling out to him, till he finally pops out with a cheeky cheeky grin beaming "kou kou Mama". 

Some of my favourites from last week were these little toes and this beautiful combination of eyes, sand and hair. As always, joining in with Jodi and co.

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

Whispy hair and long lashes. 

He always has a car or two in tow. Drives it around the playground, pours sand on it, shoots it off any ramp like surface. 

He climbs on everything but can't get down. He point to me and yells "mama, ko mne, ko mne" (to me, to me, is russian).

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

He'd just woken up from his car nap. We rugged him up and took him outside to breathe in the crisp, fresh air of the Dandenong Ranges. He stood around for a while, mesmerised, trying to get his bearings.

Even though, most of the time these days, I am amazed at the little boy Atticus is becoming, I love the fact that sometimes he still looks very much like a baby.

p.s. I'm so totally thrilled that 13 | 52 was picked as one of Jodi's favourites from last week.

the dandenongs

 Ok, I know that first image is out of focus, and how I very much wish I had gotten the focus right, but something about it still compells me... and so it is included in today's post.

Last weekend we drove up the the beautiful Dandenong Ranges, to buy some tea and explore...We checked out the historic railway station at Emerald, stocked up on our favourite French Earl Grey Tea in Sassafrass and had milkshakes and wedges in Olinda. 

The seasons are finally shifting and the cold air is starting to blow. All of a sudden we've gone from an unprecedented spell of continuously hot hot hot days and nights, to a bone tingling chill. We've all been a little under the weather as our bodies and minds adjust. It feels nice to rug up and cuddle up in warmer layers though. I've quickly knitted Atticus up a beanie for the season (which makes him look like a baby again!), so we're definitely getting ready to embrace the colder weather!
