It's Hard For Me But I'm Trying

harumph

I love these photos despite his unwillingness to cooperate. Wonder why so many photos of just Ivy? Now you know.

Childish sticky fingers. Sometimes he'll still hold my hand.

turned away

With each tug in the other direction his heart reaches out further for mine. I know him. He knows I know him. He is safe.

He needs me more now than he ever has.

  3. He reminds me so much of my little boy! Some of my favorite pictures are of him crying or frowning (as strange as that sounds.) Very sweet post. :)

  6. These pictures melt my heart and remind me of my own moody (for lack of better words) two year old.

    He's precious. And the last one made me giggle a little :)

  7. Oh he is adorable!! And I feel like my little guy (going into kindergarten) needs me more now too. Even if he is busy trying to be just like daddy and be independent and stuff

  8. He makes me think so much of Luke right now. I get that pose several times a day, and I know that I need to just wrap him in a hug.

  11. See and people wonder sometimes why the mom only post photos of one child haha.. this is how it was for a while on my blog. I could only get taite to smile for me or even be halfway willing to be in a picture! So I wasnt posing much on Caleb.. but thats just the way kids are some times :)
    Gray is adorable unwilling tho HEHE

  13. Oh goodness! This reminds me of my middle child. She does the exact same thing in pictures. She refuses to cooperate. Funny, though, the moments when she tries to break away from me are usually when she needs me most. It's a good thing that mothers know their children so well!

  14. He sure reminds me of Terry. He was an expert in pouting.

    Very sweet post.
