Well, last week I posted about my girls... their attitudes and discipline struggles.... Well, today let me update you on my baby boy... Virgil. He has been unique since the get go... well, he's a boy. enough said, right?
Ever since V was about 4 months old, he's been a bit of a struggle for me. He was always grumpy. Always crying, but not wanting to be cuddled. Well, lately he's become more affectionate... although it's more in the realm of a crazy puppy that growls, slobbers, attacks, bites, and rubs its head all over you to show love. :) So glad that I can tell he actually loves me... just ideally wish it was expressed another way (I'm not a dog lover!). But he smiles now. And that's wonderful.
But now he's entered a new stage... full of new challenges. It's nothing unheard of. In fact, Sadie was doing the exact same things 2 years ago at this time. But it's still exhausting and frustrating! He's climbing on every chair, every table, opening every drawing, toilet lids, pulling out all the baby wipes... you know what I'm talking about. oh you know.
One day a week or so ago, I decided that instead of getting super frustrated about all the tricks he was pulling, I was going to take pics and post them for you. You know, for a laugh. Yeah. right. 20 minutes into the morning, and I was like... forget. this. So I only have a few, quite tame pictures to show you. There are no pictures of the lotion squirted all over the bathroom floor, my diet coke spilled on the carpet, the files that got renamed because V got on the computer, the look on my face as I find him playing in an unflushed toilet... the spilled milk and cereal all over the floor because he climbed on the breakfast table, the trash strewn all over the kitchen because I didn't remember to put the trash can on top of the high chair like I usually do. AHHHHHH! ... but I love him :)
So I'm offering a sigh of understanding to any and all moms who have been there... or are there. This too shall pass... right? Good thing they're cute.
