Do you want to know what is really strange for me about being a mom? It is the fact that after 28 years of not having a child, I can’t really remember my life before my son. That is sort of difficult to explain. It isn’t that I don’t remember life pre-motherhood or that I don’t cherish that time as well. He is just such a part of me now that I can’t imagine my life without him. He has changed me in so many amazing ways, and yet I’m still the same person.
I haven’t posted about my kiddo much in the past year because I’m finally seeing his little personality and have been unsure if I wanted to share it on my blog. He has his own personality that is no longer just a reflection of my husband and me, but is just him! In the end I finally decided that I will abide by some personal rules when posting about him, and if and when he decides that he doesn’t want to be featured on my blog I’ll respect that. Currently he loves the camera. If you can’t tell by these amazing shots taken by Macey from Moments by Macey.
At three years old we are dealing with a variety mood swings. Sometimes this little guy will be the most polite and amazing child. Brian and I will look at each other with “what in the world happened to him?” Other times it is FIT city. From everything I’ve read from mothers and fathers of 3 year olds… we are right on track.
The day we took these photos with he was on his best behavior. You would never had guessed that just hours before he had thrown an epic fit because he didn’t want to nap and then another epic fit because he didn’t want to wake up. By the time we got to the wall and had a bunch of balloons he was the happiest and sweetest kid on the block. He loved his casual cool toddler style look, making sure his hair was just right in the mirror. But, really… it was all about the balloons. Man, balloons are amazing.

What is it about kids hair cuts that suddenly age them? My toddler suddenly looks like a little boy with his locks cut short and styled. We had a fantastic stylist who immediately knew what we wanted when we described his cut. Basically we wanted an undercut style for the little guy, but had no idea how to describe it. She did a fantastic job with this toddler hair cut and the kiddo didn’t do bad either!
My little guy is getting older. It’s hard to deal with at times. We recently got our two year old a hair cut. Short on the sides and long on top. As soon as it was done he immediately said, “I cool!”
We think he is pretty cool too.
There is just something great about a good vintage tee and well-worn blue jeans. This casual, but seriously cool ensemble was fun for a day exploring downtown Portland. It is simple, but put together toddler style which is essential when it comes to stylish and busy toddler boys!
This little guy is getting so big. Most of his clothes are able to be worn for about a month or two before another growth spurt puts them in the “giveaway” pile. These jeans though have stood the test of toddler time. Can you believe these are the same jeans he wore in the 7 days of Style images from over a year ago? The adjustable elastic waist band is now on the very last button, and there is no need to roll up the hems, but they still fit! I love that he has even worn a hole in the knee. Shows you he plays hard.
