Our little big dude is TWO. That itty bitty brunette who we welcomed into the world on October 23, 2014 is now a chunky, BLONDE, bundle of energy and joy. Every person that meets him comments on one of three things. 1. How handsome he is…I think so too, but I’m a little biased. 2. How much personality he has…you have no idea! or 3. How “solid” he is…try toting him around on your hip 😉
Much like his dad, Nash is obsessed with K-State. OBSESSED. He would listen to the K-State fight song on repeat all day long if I’d let him…and he ‘s rarely misses a “GO STATE”. When he wakes up before Arden, I’ll bring him into our room and let him watch a show while I shower. His usual choice? “I watch K-State football game, mommy”. And he does. I’m not sure how it can be fun for a 2-year-old that doesn’t understand the rules of the game, but he is glued to the TV when the wildcats are on it! Oh and he knows quite a few colors now…blue, red, white, yellow, and “K-State Wildcats”. AKA…purple. He is a die-hard, that’s for sure!
People always told me that boys are snugglers and love their moms. I totally get it now. He is the snuggliest little chunk…when he’s not running around like a total maniac, that is. My favorite is when he randomly comes up to me, puckers his lips and says “kiss, mommy”. Don’t have to twist my arm!
Mother’s Day Out has been a great thing for Nash. He loves his teachers and talks about “schoowl” all the time. As the second child, there aren’t a lot of things he gets to do just himself…so I think spending a few hours a week, doing activities catered to his age, has been a real treat. And when the door swings open and he runs out of that classroom all lit up and happy to see me–my heart could just burst!
I’ve never met a little one that was such a mix of ornery and sweet. One minute he’s terrorizing his sister or emptying every drawer in his room for “fun”…and the next he’s hugging Arden or saying “I lub you, mommy”. You just can’t be mad at him for too long.
Life hasn’t been easy since Nash was born, but it’s hard to be sad around this guy. I’m so glad my girls will get to have him as a brother.
You make life so much sweeter, Nash! We love you more than you could know!
