Maggie: Intently watching Rob harvest the sunflower seeds.
Elisabeth: She walked down the drive with me today, I can't believe how sturdy she is on her feet now.

Both girls have had a rough couple of days. Their 18 month vaccination combined with their second flu vac along with a weird 24 hour bug that cause a fever, and a sleepless, grizzly, clingy baby. Hoping for a healthy week this week.

I keep thinking of blog posts in the shower, or as I fall asleep, but so far have failed to find the time to write them.  One day.

Guest photographer this week, Rob took some photos when we were at the park.

Maggie: It was such a cold afternoon, but we'd organised for the girls and Rob to come and visit a park near my workplace after I finished early. It was their first park visit and they loved it. Dare devil babies wanted to go down slides (with us holding them of course), on swings, climb up and down steps, on a roundabout. Possibly more interesting were the two other little girls at the park, whom Maggie is looking at here.
Elisabeth: I bought them these fleece suits for winter, they look quite ridiculous in them, but cute all the same.

Maggie: So solemn. So unlike her. I can't believe they'll be 18 months old this Thursday. This year is flying. Slow down little ones.
Elisabeth: Fitting that she sports a strawberry beanie. They love strawberries, even out of season.

A walk in the winter sunshine.

Maggie: I know I have said I don't like to get the girls to do formal poses for the portraits, but they have recently taken quite an interest in the dresses that hang up in their myrtle wardrobe. They point to the door and like to look over the selection, oohing and aahing in appreciation. These red cord dresses were new to us, purchased at a fundraiser on the weekend. I think they like the process of having a mid-day bath, and then being dressed up in tights, skivvies, dresses and shoes. 
Maggie wasn't as keen to sit on the stool but the light coming through the window behind her and lighting up her fair hair like a halo was perfect.
Elisabeth: A little more confident sitting up high, she is walking nearly everywhere now, overnight she has completed the transformation from baby to toddler girl.
