A weekly portrait of my boys…

It feels good to be nearing a point when I can open the door, let them out, and not have to immediately worry about all the dangers of outside. I obviously still go out with them but I can be a little more relaxed since Liam knows how to work the steps and hills. However, now Jack knows how to use the gate. I swear every stage has a new challenge. Just when you think you got motherhood down, it changes!

A weekly portrait of my boys…

Liam (21 months): This boy loves outside time and his “baketball” even if it is a soccer ball.

Jack (almost 4!): Doesn’t take much for him to smile and I’m so grateful for that.

A weekly portrait of my boys…

We are anxiously waiting spring at our house! The snow melted off our deck (I’m sure only for a couple days before more comes) so Jack begged me to go outside and blow bubbles. If you ask me it was wayyy too cold to do that! But it didn’t last long haha.

A weekly portrait of my boys…

Liam: This one is cutting his molars and wakes up crying every night which means he always ends up in our bed. Please come in fast, molars!
Jack: He is definitely transitioning out of naps but every few days I can tell he NEEDS one. After several protests, he crashes.

Oh these kids and their sleep struggles. Sigh.

  • My 3.5 year old is the same way! He’ll fight the naps so hard and then crash on the fourth day of no naps and sleep until we wake him up. Winter is hard too since we aren’t getting outside and running around as often!ReplyCancel

      It’s so true Jessica! And I’m always wondering if I should wake him up or let him sleep… seems like there’s a fine line because then it might be a struggle at his regular bedtime! I cannot wait til spring!!ReplyCancel
