So it seems that we are well into the month of May. Around here in the Kyle house, that's pretty significant - because this month, Mr. Briggs will turn two. Missing his birthday last year was a little bit hard for me, so I've really been looking forward to celebrating WITH him this year.
As the occasion approaches, I'm well aware that I'm watching him change from a baby into a little boy. And there are so.many.things about him right now that I wish I could just bottle up and keep forever.
Like the little bit of chubby that is still left on his wrists and knees,
and the way he says "t" for "k" and "d" in place of "g,"
and the fact that our daily walks to the mailbox are full of adventure,
or the way that he will dance anytime, anywhere - music or no music.
And his giggle. Oh boy. Never have I heard another that is so contagious.
So, while I know I don't have to love the hard parts, I'm doing my best to not spend my time with him wishing he were older. (Funny story...during this little photoshoot you see here, I actually tossed a book across the room because he was whining in.my.face and demanding that I read it, and all I wanted to do was take pictures. REAL mature. I know.)
This boy is nine-parts amazing and it is unbelievable how much depth he has added to my life.
He is changing so quickly.
And he is changing me so quickly.
