Joining Jodi in taking a portrait of each of my children every week in 2015.
Otto: "Mom I made you mud tea! Do you want some mud tea?/"
Lilo: Nom, nom, nom, nom.
We don't mind a little mess around here. And this, this is what I think childhood is made of. So while I may not love cleaning up the aftermath, while they are so happily getting covered head to toe in mud (and eating it besides) I step back and love the fact that they are totally engaged for a while. And then snap a few pictures. (And, by the way, every day since these photos were taken has included some level of this. It's spring and we're loving it.)
