t w o / 5 2

This week has been full of surprises.

Steven all of a sudden grew all four canines and is cranky as ever because of it. He officially has a whopping SIX teeth at nine months old! Throughout this whole week, he's become a stage five baby clinger. Which I have a love hate relationship with sometimes. But I let it slide because I know that one day, he won't want my cuddles or kisses or hugs anymore.

Delilah, on the other hand, is becoming more and more independent and I'm not sure how to feel about that as a mother. She is one day closer to turning four - and she won't let me forget it. Her motherly instinct kicked into full effect when Steven was born. Now, she always wants to be the "mommy" and take care of her little brother, comb his hair, feed him even. It's extremely bittersweet watching her grow up. Thankfully, I'm glad the threenager stage is over, but still sad to see her grow.

I'm so glad that I've gotten myself into doing this project. Not only am I capturing more details of my own life, but I'm able to spend more time with my kids. Which is extremely difficult to do sometimes because I'm solo parenting and I'm also working full time. So, this time that I have right now, I'm savoring forever. Because it's time that I'll never get back if I don't live here and now; In the moment.
