7/52

'A portrait of my child, once a week, every week in 2013'
We have just returned from your cousins second birthday. This picture is taken when we found you back in the dinning area cruising everybody's leftovers. First to the table a last to leave ;)

It was so lovely to Wilf so confident and enjoying playing with all the older children, happy to explore by himself and even go off and have a little boogie. The gap between Wilf and his cousin is closing and I love to think of them as being great friends in years to come. I don't know that I was ever a confident child (and I know from what Tom tells me he was far from one) so it always surprises me that Wilf is so self assured. He is not really a loud child but he's more than happy to get stuck in with other children and go off adventuring, occasionally he will search for Tom or I but (unless tired) he's pretty great in social situations.

I love it when babies do that! Makes me laugh! It's like they've been let loose on food for the first time :) I hope he picked up on all the goodies first...

How amazing is Wilf's hair? I am always surprised to see the way that Casper socialises with other children. He is cautious but also looks for companionship. I think it's hard to remember the way we were as children. It's a completely different set of rules. Kids just get together without formal introduction. A bit like bloggers!
