She & Him, three/52
This year, I have been participating in Che and Fidel's 52 Project, sharing one photograph of each of my children on the blog each week. As we are halfway through 2013, Jodi at Che and Fidel has invited us to share our three favourite photos from the year so far.
I am sneaking in the photo from 15/52, above, because it was a rare and beautiful moment of sibling peace and cooperation. Together they decided to make a video with him wearing a banana costume. One of those moments that warms a mother's heart. You can see how much she adores him.
She: In all three of the photos I chose of her, she is looking directly at the camera (at me). I like these pictures because they show a little bit of her personality - she's bold, fun, happy, yet a little bit shy too. And boy she loves her mom. She's my best friend.
Him: It's funny - in all the photos I chose of him, he's not even looking at the camera. This reflects the difference in their personalities. Unlike his sister, he isn't really comfortable being photographed. He's happiest when he's in action - playing with his much-loved cousins, hanging outside in nature or reading a good book. He just turned 11 and it's a time of tremendous change. I want to hold onto these "boy" moments a bit longer.
