*A photograph of each of my children, once a week in 2015*
This kid is all about life these days. The questions, comments and concerns are endless but I love listening to his little voice and trying to answer him the best I can. We unintentionally play the "Why Game" a lot lately because he is just so curious. Cohen gets so excited about the littlest things which really has made me stop and remember the little joys that are important in life. It's amazing how you can look at things differently through a four year old's eyes.
Our nap days are slowly coming to an end and it has been a difficult adjustment okay, probably for both of us.) This past weekend was busy with birthday parties, rare January bike rides outside and a visit from step-sissy. We were just overly tired and a nap would have been greatly appreciated by his four year old body...if only he understood that. I guess he will when he's 19, right?
Miss Lola decided that she was ready to officially start walking, so she did. She now will walk across the room without any problems. Her walk closely resembles a drunken sailor, but it is cute as can be. Lola is also working on a naptime transition by going from two naps to one nap a day. We are in this in between stage where one nap isn't quite enough but two is a bit too much. One of my favorite sounds is her deep, belly laugh and Cohen is so good at getting it going. I had a moment of amazement yesterday when I started thinking about how just last year at this time she was only two months old and barely awake longer than a few hours a day. Now she's a walking, talking, crawling and climbing machine - who still headbutts her brother when he pisses her off.
