As for us....everyone is doing great. Three is really agreeing with the big kid. He seems to listen better than ever before and is so much easier to reason with. He's as social as they come and is constantly making new "friends" on the playground. The energy with this kid never quits....he wakes up early and stays up late and naps....phew....he gave those up at 18 months. The little kid just turned two and is completely obsessed with airplanes and helicopters! He's so polar opposite from his brother. He's such an observer and just the kind of kid that you can tell is just taking it all in. Until recently he called airplanes 'boom boom' and that's all we heard out of him. He's finally talking a bit and I'm loving hearing new words out of his mouth everyday. He's quite, and sweet, and can climb like no other. Nightime has taken on a new normal since the little guy started climing out of the crib last week. And, man am I tired! The boys are playing together more and more, giving hugs to each other, and yes, beating the tar out of each other on occasion too. And, as much as we love them, they have their moments like any other kids. I recently read somewhere that the 'hours are long but the years are short' and I couldn't agree more.
On another note, we ran with Reds idea and started a business and I'm loving this new photo gig. It's such a challenege to walk into someones home and find the light I need, find the best spot to take photos, guide people to be posed properly, keep the toddlers entertained and interested. But, it's such a good feeling to deliever photos that preserve a moment or evoke a memory. I'm learning so much and loving every minute of it. Find my website here, and like me on Facebook here.
Happy Valentines Day friends! Here are a few favorites from recent sessions as well as a few from around my house.
And, how could I not post this crazy hilarious photo of my mom. Makes me laugh everytime I look at it. Thanks for being such a good sport mom!
