welcome to toddler town
From the book The 7 Stages of Motherhood by Ann Pleshette Murphy, she wrote, "During our children's toddler years we move from holding their hands to holding our breath to occasionally holding our head in our hands." (page 89)
Watching Owen turn into this curious, energetic, on the go all the time, busy little man who talks and asks for things that he wants and has ideas of his own is amazing. It's exhausting, I'm not going to lie, chasing after him all the time, constantly having to be sure I'm "on" and focused to make sure he's not climbing the stairs or eating something he shouldn't from off the ground. Yet it's amazing and my most fun time with him yet. Seeing that he's now this little person who gets the world around him and who is more excited by everything he sees than anything I've ever observed is awesome.
