I know that's to be expected, but at times it's exhausting. It seems to be better when we're home and in our normal routine, but as soon as visitors or friends pop over he gets overly silly and at times sassy. Bedtime has been the worst- he typically heads upstairs without issue, gets ready and even listens to stories nicely, but the minute it's time for Mom to walk out the door all hell breaks loose. He needs water, he's hungry, another kiss, another hug, his blankets need to be straightened, he's scared of the dark, of Mr. Todd (a sassy guy from Peter Rabbit), of dinosaurs, of God knows what, he's testing every ounce of my patience. He's also only wanting Mom to put him down which is tough seeing as though I've spent the entire day with him and Piper is typically ready to eat at his bedtime hour. I jump from one child to the other...I try not to complain, realizing that these situations are all temporary, but everyday I have to find the patience to deal with my blessings.
These bubbly fun pictures help me realize that although my sweet baby boy seems so big, deep down he's still little and needs his mama!
