Life is better with little ones

Just thinking about how much I enjoy having my toddler around. She just makes everything more fun.

Take eating, for example.

Look at the care taken to eat every last bit of frosting off these breakfast bites:


Note the symmetry of this bagel:


The creativity to sprinkle the sugar on the table first, before eating it:


The determination NOT to eat the bun:

And how cute she looks when she wears the cinnamon and sugar (this time she poured it all onto the plate first):


I love you, little one (but next time, ASK MOMMY FIRST!)!

Love how she's trying to eat the hot dog out of the bun. That made me smile. Well, little one my youngest is turning 12 and she still likes the hot dog without the bun. Although I gotta say that I'm really glad at 12, she dosen't pour the sugar on the table to eat it! :v)

You have a very talented daughter! She is precious! Looks to me like she might have a little bit of a sweet tooth too, except for the hotdog..who can blame her?

What a cutie! My toddler rubbed hamburger all through her hair at lunchtime and then promptly fell asleep before she could be washed. She's napping on a towel in her crib right now.
Toddlers: They're a special people.

Life IS fun with little ones around, huh? I love it too. Once they get old enough to NOT make as many messes, it becomes sad that they don't.

The creativity of young ones...sigh...today we had a Maple Syrup Lake with a tiny little pancake island. Followed up with Maple Syrup as hair gel...double sigh and count to ten :-)

Such great - and adorable pictures! We're "in between" toddlers at the moment, but I know it's just a matter of months until Logan is on the move and things get a LOT more "interesting" around here.

I can SO relate to this post today! I'm exhausted today with all the 'creativity' of my 18 month old and 5 year old - but, they are just so cute, what do you do? :)

Isn't it great when they do things like that> All you can do is smile, clean it up, and make sure you take a picture for "blackmail" later on in life :)

Oh I know just how you feel. They can get into things faster than you can turn around. It's amazing, isn't it? I just keep thinking that someday I'll miss those little messes!!
