When I first discovered we were having Bauer I had no idea what I would do with a boy. I wasn’t scared of them, I just had always been way more of myself around girls than boys. I was intimidated by my baby boy even while he was in the safety of my womb.
Then we found out we were going to have another boy and I knew I was in for it. But in these past few crazy years since Bauer was born and Bennett was added to the mix, I’ve learned that boys are special in a way I could never have predicted.
They love their mommas for sure, but they also stretch me in new and different ways every minute. I have to be on my “A game” all the time to participate in a sword fight or tackle a “pantsless” wonder as he runs from the bathroom.
They melt your heart with a smile right after they have just filled the sink to overflowing so their pennies could take a bath or smeared oreo cookies all over their mouth. They come out of their rooms as night and ask in the the sweetest voice if you could just come help them find one more building block for their fort master piece.
Boy oh boy…do I love me some boys.
They are so different than anything I could have every predicted. But in the most wonderful way!
Below are a few pics of life lately:
In love with spring so far….lots more short-wearing, flower-picking days ahead!
And lots more days learning about being a “boy” mom!
