Since I've recently spent time moaning about the transition Silas has been undergoing these past few weeks, I realized I needed (yet again) a perspective change. I think it's those things that we teach and preach that often elude our own practices!
There are so many quirky and amazing things that Silas does on a regular basis, and I just don't want to forget them, nor do I want to wish away some of life's greatest moments. So here's my "loving the twos" list:

~ I love how Silas wants everyone to enjoy whatever food he is eating. He will demand that you try any food he's currently consuming with pleasure. Hungry or not, you better figure out a way to make him think you ate it (and liked it)!
~I love how he congratulates himself on any and everything he thinks is worth an applause with a boisterous high-pitched YAY!

~I love how he loves to be around a group, and group, even if they are is animal friends.
~I love how when you play "hide and seek, " with him, he can't stand to hide for more than two seconds before running out and giving himself away. (He's a much better seeker than hider.)
~ I love his laugh when he's doing something that you've said no one else does (like sneaking some raw whole wheat flour as seen above).
~I love his excitement when I play his favorite playlist of music. He just can't believe that all his favorite songs are continuously played back to back. (On the top of the list are "Happy" and "All the People Said Amen!" you can't help but love these songs too.)

~I love how he started saying he's going to work to type (apparently that's what daddy does for a living). Then he'll immediately return, say hello, and when prompted, "how was your day?" he always says fun (I hope it's always that way buddy!).

~I loved watching him go up down up down on his first carousel ride (and I love how he chose to ride the frog).

Silas, no matter how bad your day is (or mine), or how unpleasant you may seem, I will always love you so much!



  1. Love love love you and your beautiful family, Katie!
