20/52: A Weekly Photo Series

Not going to lie, this week was full of ups and downs. Aden turned 18 months on Tuesday and seemingly overnight began acting like a, well, 1 1/2 year old. Lots of tantrums, throwing things in frustration and whining by my side. I love my little boy something fierce, but his non-stop need for my attention this week drove me bananas at times. 

There were also some really great moments, like Tory's last day of 3-year-old preschool and her year-end school picnic on Wednesday. My heart melted when Tory snuggled in by Aden's side as they watched cartoons on their first official morning of summer vacation. And, I couldn't help but smile (and grab my camera!) when I saw the two of them sitting together on my bed one day. His short, stocky legs and her long, lean ones; how fast they grow from one to the other. 

Yes, some moments in parenting are challenging. There are also so many great ones. Feeling thankful for these two little blessings of mine -- even their constant chatter in one ear and screeching in the other.

  1. I'd bump that some moments are challenging to a ton of moments are challenging ha =) But the great ones are so much heavier. In a good way. The are just better and fill you up, you know!?
    Aria decided to turn two and really turn two. I can't believe how switch flip it was. And still is. Drama. Her newest thing when she gets in trouble is grabbing me for a hug and saying 'love me mama'. How can you stay annoyed at that!
