Joshua is 2!! Where has the Time Gone?

I know I am a few days late on this post, but honestly I have been working on this post for almost a week now.

Joshua turned 2 this past Thursday!!!! I love the little toddler that he has grown to be. With him, every day is a whole new adventure. He learns new things, new words and each day he gets more and more independent. He is not that little newborn I brought home from the hospital two years ago. He is now a very happy, smart, healthy and active little man.

He still acts like my tiny baby every now and then. He enjoys being loved and getting cuddled. He still won’t go to sleep without someone holding him or at least laying with him. He still sleeps in our bed 90% of the time. He likes getting all the attention. He still loves his “BA BA” and he drags his blankie all over the house with him. Oh, as odd as it is, whenever he is upset or tired he shoves his hand down my shirt and puts it on my boob!! Not sure where that came from, maybe remembering his breastfeeding days lol. When he needs comfort it never fails. His hand goes down my shirt, into my bra and he pretty much grabs my boob. He will even do it in public :-) I don’t care, it calms him down and at the moment it isn’t bothering anything.

However, my sweet little newborn has turn into this little monster that I no longer recognize. He gets into everything!!! He thinks it is okay as long as he looks cute while doing it. He throws temper tantrums like I haven’t seen before. He moves our furniture around the house, and uses it climb on top of things like the tables or kitchen counters. He jumps off of these tables and counters, hits the ground, says ouch, laughs and tries to do it again. He thinks everything is his and fights with his sisters all the time to get their toys. He beats up on Lily every chance he gets, which really upsets me because she is completely loving to him and is never mean to him. I would honestly be less surprised if he did it to Ariana since she can be very mean and pushy to him.

When I ask Josh for a kiss, he hits me in the face, so I have to steal those sweet candy kisses from him. There are times that he only wants his daddy, usually at bedtime but it still bothers me. I want him all for myself! He changes every day! He loves playing with his sisters and is such a big boy when running around with them. He has also learned how to use the door knobs which means nothing is safe! Now he has even more things to get into, his favorite of coarse has to be the toilet.

Joshua loves taking baths and he asks for one several times a day. He drinks from a big boy cup and loves it when you add a straw. He eats just about anything you give him but still cries and points for the suckers at the grocery store. He is getting into the t.v. now and really enjoys watching Veggie Tales and Wonder Pets. He dances all the time! He even learned how to turn the radio on by himself so he can dance and yell “Go go go go”.

He dumps all the toys out of the toy box, he spits chewed up food all over the place, he screams as loud as he can if he doesn’t get his way, he lays on the floor kicking and screaming when he is mad and throws toys at the cats. He is my Joshua and I love him even when he acts like a monster.

He is 2! He is learning new things, testing his boundaries, exploring and being your normal 2 year old. He is funny, cute, loving sweet, smart, happy and healthy. What more could I possibly ask for?

I miss the newborn that I brought home 2 years ago but I am so proud of the toddler that he is today. This little boy just melts my heart. The past 2 years have flown by, I can’t believe how fast they went by. I mean, I know it goes back quick after all he is my 3rd child, so it’s not like it was a surprise. But with him, it seems as if it went by twice as fast. Maybe I am crazy!

I am cherishing every moment I have with him and with the girls for that matter. I am so thankful that I get to stay home and be with them all the time. I haven’t missed one thing with Josh and  I wouldn’t trade that for anything.

I am so blessed to have these 3 little ones and I plan on making memories with them that will last a lifetime!

  1. Cherishing every moment with all of them (and not sweating the little stuff) is what makes you such a great parent! As they say, don’t blink it will be over soon :(

  2. Awww, he’s cute! I can see how he can think he can get away with doing anything as long as he looks cute ;) I need to work more on not sweating the small stuff. It is definitely easier to do on some days. I can’t believe my youngest will be 5 in a few months!!!

  3. So many adorable pictures! My daughter will be 2 in April and wow do i agree with you. Talk about flying by! Seems like yesterday that I was pregnant for the first time!

  4. It really does go by fast!! My Josh just turned two too! Seems like I was just planning him. We use portrait innovations too. They are a great affordable choice to get alot of great pics!

  5. I didn’t know where else to tell you how much I love the picture of your Josh with the bowl on his head wearing the shirt that says lock up your daughters! This is so funny on many levels! The look on his face is priceless :)
