TERRIBLE Twos.


In the past week, my 23-month-old hit his Terrible Twos. For anyone who hasn't had a two-year-old boy, let me tell you: they'll wear you right out. Where Matthew was always calm, laid-back, and obedient...Jack is proving to be a spaz, sassy, and fairly unaffected by my discipline. Super.

It's a good thing he's an amazing hugger.

I wish you well with that one! ;) I didn't know the whole 'terrible two's' very much until my middle child came along, and then my youngest. It's quite the ride, isn't it.

I like your green vest. I was going to say that before. Maybe I already did. I have the worst memory.

Oh, but he's so handsome. Good luck!

I think Jenna is worse at three than she was two! Hopefully his terrible two's won't last all year!

I think Haley must have gone through that, because I am so amazed that she's turned into such a sweet little girl. I always thought she was going to be my spitfire. Now I say Izzy is...

Such a cute picture of you two.

sometimes those challenging moments make me question my choice to stay at home! but hugs like that are so delicious!

Hmm, one year to go before Eric is two. Eric likes to put his forehead on mine, just like your pic of you & jack-jack and I was telling Annastiina that is his sign of affection. He almost head-butted a little girl in the cry room a month or so ago with this move.

Love this picture!

I love it! And I second Elizabeth's comment. :D Ethan was also very calm and obedient and Gregory is already a spunky stinker! A happy one but he tests WAY more than Ethan did at age one!

There has to be one in the bunch! Aidan was our most difficult, but Rachel was no treat either. Addie is nearing two, but she has been so easy since birth. She just does her thing and takes it all in stride. I think three is worse than two...we will survive. :)
