The youngest of the Krouse family turns one this January. Otto is rather shy and serious just like his Dad. Thankfully he’s pretty happy to entertain himself, which makes it easier for Lorelei and Marshal to get dinner on the table.

Penelope talks with classmates on the computer after school, while Otto eats toys more than playing with them.
