This has just been one of THOSE weeks.

A lot of it is just our busy, busy month and I think since we've had a few days of rest, my body has just decided it's time to shut down completely. All I have wanted to do is lay around, drink spiced tea and pretend that it's a lot colder outside than it is. That was all easier before I had a two year old.


Monday, we met our Lunch Bunch group at the pumpkin patch for a little bit before heading to a birthday lunch with Gammy. Nathan and I were, I hate to say, both horrendously grouchy.

I think I'm going through the terrible twos along with my son. Two will not go down as my favorite year ever. There are many days where I just sit and cry because I feel like such a failure as a mom.

But then there are times where he is just SO cute and SO sweet that I just want to pick him up and hold him tight enough to slow down this incredible speed that his life is racing by. Today he gave me a big hug around my neck out of the middle of nowhere and said, "Aw, I love you Mommy!" and then he was gone playing again.

He is very imaginative. He loves, loves to sing and will sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" to anyone, anytime, anywhere. LOUDLY. He loves to read. He would sit through 20 books before nap time if I let him (sometimes we start nap time routine WAY early just to have time to wind down before actually getting in the bed).

I love my baby. I know why most adults have gray hair now, but I wouldn't trade him - even with all the frustrations and fits - for anything in the whole world.

P.S. Nathan's absolutely adorable hat was sent to us by a super sweet reader, Shannon Graupman. She has the cutest Etsy shop - www.littlebuttercupbaby.etsy.com. You should definitely go check it out!! Thank you so much, Shannon! Nathan (and I!) love the hat!! :)

P.P.S. I would like to promise that we normally match our outfits better than we did in these pictures, but when it's laundry day, we usually don't. ;) So, you're getting the real us, I guess!
