Terrible Two's?

My sweet angel baby boy is now a seasoned two year old!! Every day holds something new and exciting in his world of learning, exploring, and testing things out in life. So far. . . nothing has been remotely terrible and I've been kind of wondering what all the hoopla is with the "terrible two's." We are all getting a full night's sleep (except for the occasional nights of disruption), the teeth are all in, communication is improving, and play time just doesn't get any more fun!!

We went sledding today--perfect weather. . . . sunny, no wind--forgetting that we had a bit of a spring thaw at the beginning of the week--creating a slick, icy, and scary sledding hill. For those of you who harrass me for being over protective--know that I definitely stepped outside of my box today. Jakob is truly a daredevil and will be a "screamer" as you will hear on the video. It makes me sad, in a way, to see him grow so fast and we vow as a family to take advantage of every moment we can. After returning home, we all warmed up, hung out downstairs in our "playland" and ate left over pizza. Pretty much the perfect afternoon in my eyes!! Little Jakob was so exhausted from all the action. He let me rock him for about 20 minutes--just like I used to when he was a wee little one. He must have sensed my fear of him growing up too fast.

I always knew I would love being a parent. . . . I just never knew it would really be this AWESOME!! So, speaking of parenting. . . I better get to bed or I will be the kind of mom I don't want to be in the morning! haha Once again, I didn't realize it was so late. . .
