One more month of the big white chair and thank goodness because it took me 1.5 months to get this posted. I think I took 5 pictures in the month of September. Life is moving fast and some days I want to hit the pause button. Preferably during nap time. 5 o'clock chimes and I look around the house and although I know that my bottom hasn't hit a chair all day, I often have nothing to show for my sweat and tears. Am I the only mom that seriously eats her lunch standing? Breakfast in the car on the way to preschool? I eat while filling cups with milk, unloading the dishwasher, and painting egg cartons to make hanging bats. This chaos and noise is strangely comforting to me. Most days, neighbors ask how my night shift was and despite the disheveled face, I didn't work last night. That's when I go inside and shower and once a month I dry my hair. I love this season of my life. No time to relish in the thought, I've got to clean peanut butter off the wall.
He's got a wicked curve ball and he'll aim straight for your head.
2 seconds later, sweet as pie hugging his baseball.
He can be pretty naughty. But he does give the best hugs after he bites.
17 months and has already been introduced to 'time out'.
He's down right funny. The only person in our family's that can make me laugh is my brother. A rare gene but I like it.
Since I'm filling in holes here...
This is what I'm talking about. Just look how much they've changed in just 6 months. God should have made this human development thing linger just a little longer.
Someone was terrified of the Bunny. Santa pictures this year might be entertaining. Last year he pulled his beard and laughed about it and he was only 8 months old. I pray for patience EVERY day!
Her heart is so kind and compassionate. She's intelligent but not a leader. She hasn't quite developed emotional control yet but the tantrums have lessened over the last month and I see her happy place in the near future. Today in the car, she talked nonstop for 15 minutes and I sort of lost my tolerance for the incessant questioning so I said "WOW Maryn, you talk a lot". She replied, "that's how God made me". She's much wiser than me. I appreciate those moments when she enlightens me.
