Easton will be starting Preschool in the Fall, and ugh. Time, time is a big fat jerk. But on the other hand, how cool is it to watch your kids grow and learn? It's pretty amazing. So, there's that at least.
And OMG guys, look at this face. The tiny little smirk, the hands in the pockets, even his posture!!! He's turning into such a little boy.
I'll tell you what, this child is totally different than I expected him to be at this age. He was a very easy going, calm, go-with-the-flow kind of baby/toddler. But as he gets older, actually.... with every passing day, calm isn't exactly a word I would use to describe him anymore. ;-)
He's energetic, stubborn, sassy, opinionated and is getting more and more aggressive. But I think that goes along with being a little boy, yes? But he's also loving & super thoughtful. He has an amazing sense of humor, is ridiculously funny, and he's such smart little boy, who picks up on these so quickly.
Every year, around my kids birthday, I re-read their birth stories. So naturally, I've been feeling super sentimental lately. Easton's birth was such a whirlwind for me. Everything happened quickly (compared to Bennett's birth) and I hardly had time to process what was going on. At the time, I remember thinking "no no no! I'm not ready to have another baby right now!" And I actually tried to prolong the birth. lol. But, looking back, I realize that he came exactly when he needed to come, in exactly the way he did. Overall, Easton's labor & delivery was such a wonderful experience. I have absolutely no regrets or negative memories from it. He has been the perfect addition to our family.
