Making Two Look Good!

Tobin is two. I just have to write it out, or I won’t believe it. Because how did that happen? Yesterday he was kicking me in the ribs. Oh, wait, he was kicking me in the ribs yesterday. But I meant from *inside* my belly. Anyway, it’s gone really fast. This year was a big one for our little dude: daycare, talking, glasses, a level of orneriness never before seen in our household. I think my favorite thing about him right this second is the stories my friend, Katy, tells me. When Katy drops her son off at daycare and he’s not happy, Tobin will try to comfort him. I love that, even at just two years old, he’s compassionate and empathetic. I also love his face-splitting smile, his joy in playing rough with Daddy and Nicholas, and his amazing laugh. We’re so lucky he’s our boy. I think it’s pretty fitting that he shares a birthday with Texas and Dr. Seuss, with his independent streak and love of the silly. Happy Birthday, Tobin! I can’t wait to see what this year brings!

    1. I know! I loved it too! I wanted a picture of all the kids with their Thing hair standing next to The Cat and the Lorax, but with the jumpy house outside, there was no chance.

  1. Even though it’s been two days since you wrote this, I’ll share with you that my “little guy” is turning 18 today.


    And just yesterday, he was kicking my ribs from the inside, too.

    The days are long, but the years are fast.

    Enjoy your little man.
    Hope his day was filled with joy.
    And that yours was, as well.

    1. Susan,
      I’m so glad you shared! I am completely convinced that the second I learned that I was pregnant with my older son my life hit fast forward. I try so very hard to make sure I’m with my kids in the moment (even when it’s really hard). Thanks so much for coming by!
