31 Days of Celebrating Real Life [10/9/15]


Today was the first day I let Caleb play in the back yard by himself. He’s an incredibly mature little guy, but he is only two, so I struggle to give him the independence he wants. I watched from the window as he wandered aimlessly and tinkered with toys, leaves, and other random things.

Thankful for all the ways this boy is growing up and becoming a little human being that would make his daddy so proud.

    My son is 2 as well. And I struggle with letting him go in the backyard by himself too! But, it’s so fun to see him discover new things and what he is capable of doing by himself. They grow too fast! Is it selfish that I want him to stay little forever?

      I want him to grow and discover and conquer new things and stay a cuddly little lovie all at the same time!
