a two year old

Two year olds are so fun! And mostly extremely exhausting! This particular two year old sure keeps me humble. Just when I think I have everything figured out, I make one wrong move and everything is despair and heartbreak. Here's the thing: when he is happy, he is the most fun in town, but when he's not, he's really not. This morning I am just grateful that on most days the smiles outweigh the tears.

Here's another thing: I know that before I can blink my eyes, he'll be a big stinky boy who doesn't want to be rocked to sleep anymore. So I'll gladly (and hopefully patiently) take all of the tantrums if it means that he'll still be my baby for a little while longer.


  1. Love this post. I've been blog stalking you for awhile and I seriously LOVE the things you write about. You are one of those inspiring voices out there that makes me want to slow down and be more grateful. Thanks so much for the reminders.

  2. That sounds very familiar. Violet is both the sweetest and most frustrating girl I know. She is definitely 2!!

  3. He looks so much like his big brother!
