On November 19th by baby boy turned 2 and a half. He doesnt know he did, but it was a big milestone for me. When people ask how far apart my boys will be I say with a smile 2.5 years. Well that is now. Baby is coming soon and Ryan is now closer to being THREE than he is to 2. Time is flying by so quickly and I wish I could bottle this up and keep it forever.
Its no lie that 18 months to a little after his second birthday were rough. Thank heavens I can finally join the ranks of mama's who LOVE having a toddler because, folks, I do. He is amazingly awesome. We rarely have to do time outs, he is talking and hanging out with me like a friend, and he is sleeping good (at the moment that is always subject to change) He is always trying to be big like mommy and daddy. From cooking in the kitchen to unlocking the car to "doing his homework" and making me leave the bedroom. He is growing and happy and healthy and I LOVE it. We have so much fun together.
