01-07 Oskar

Meet Oskar Knox, aka OK. He kicks a ball really well, and today he demonstrated how sometimes when he's happy, he could run around in circles and not get dizzy at all. He's damn strong, and is already a strict vegetarian. I have no doubt, given what I know of his dad Alex, that Oskar one day would develop a refined musical taste with a bent for thumping electronica. He is shown here with residual pizza sauce on his face, and I do believe he had a good time this afternoon at our place.
I've known Oskar for just over a year now. Each time I meet and hang out with him, not only do I see various changes in him, but I also realize how perhaps he might be changing little bits of me, as well as bits of all the other folks who have been lucky enough to have had the privilege of sharing time with him.

He's so handsome. Wonderful light on his face. Kids are so amazing! They are just sponges soaking up every little thing they see and hear. Too bad we can't stay that way. :-)

Very cute kid, and the monochromatic processing really plays well.

How adorable - the photo and the story. I love the coloring. OK is the greatest nickname/set of initials ever.
