(Mommy Post) Surviving the morning…He’s almost 2!

Ahhh…Approaching 2….I decided to chronicle our lives this morning, as best as I could, to show everyone what its like in my house, my life. As I write this, My sweet almost 2 yr old, should be taking his nap, instead, he is in his crib screaming “Moooommmm”  (not even Mama anymore..he has already moved on to calling for MOM…like he is a big 6 yr old or something!!) and “BIPER” which means in the last 15 mins since I put him down, he has prob. stripped off  his clothes, and is now working on his Diaper…at some point I will go in and re-diaper him, but it will be AFTER he falls asleep. Everyday is a mix of laughter, tears, screams of anger, screams of excitement, smiles, hugs, bites, kicks, spills, stories, wonder, tantrums, talking, more hugging, more kissing, more screaming, and the occasional wiener dog assault. I wouldn’t change a thing!!!

Good Morning Sweet Pea!!

Lets Get dressed!

No! Mama!! No!

I’m just gonna relax while you “try” to put my pants on me.

Who needs pants anyway!
 Melt Down #1 7:45am
I don’t want shorts on!!

I’m Stiff as a board..you cant pick me up mama and I took my shorts off!!

I decided it was time to go outside..a little fresh air!! Liam loves running and picking up rocks!!!

My sweet baby boy…running and having fun!!

Back inside for a diaper change and guess what…time for Melt Down # 2 (9am)

There are always great times too 🙂 like the above Video of this beautiful rendition of Rock-a-bye-baby, and the almost meltdown, when I tried to rock him myself…
I like to give Liam choices about very simple things like what he would like to drink…so This is what happened next. “Liam, it was so warm out..lets get a drink..you can have Milk, or Water, which one would you like” Liam says, “NO no no Mama!!!  dont want Milk, JUICE, mama, Juice, Mama, Juice, Mama..
So as you can imagine….Melt down # 3 occurred and it was a doozie!! …oh the hard decisions of a trying to be independent toddler 🙁

Time for the Duck Pond!!! One of our favorite spots!! a great Toddler play area and a huge duck pond with a paved path in Ridgewood, NJ!!

Yaaayyy!!!
Watching the Ducks eat
Digging…
Getting sleepy


Finally time to go home, start to relax, have some lunch, watch a little Max and Ruby and take a nap!!! Watch this funny video of Liam laughing at Max playing with a Lady Bug!!



I love this baby boy more than I can ever explain, more than words could ever say, Even on the 3 meltdown mornings, I could not imagine my life with out him!! Im so blessed to have such a sweet, sweet boy!!!



(Rooftop Gardens)

The best time to travel down the West Side Highway, in NYC is at dusk…..why?? because You can see inside all of the amazing penthouse apartments way up in the sky, and you can also see the amazing Rooftop terraces/Gardens with all of the outdoor lighting on, I always love the thought of what these “Gardens” must actually look like, and wonder if it would be enough “Green” for me in a city of concrete…after seeing these, I think the answer is YES!!

Enjoy your Wednesday!!
