"2, almost 3"

If you were to ask Liam how old he is today, his response would almost certainly be "2, almost 3." It's true. Liam will be 3 in a short month and a half. Where did the time go? Is it just me or do I ask that question every other blog??
Lately he has really been giving me a run for my money. He wants to make everything a fight. EVERYTHING. He test EVER boundary I put up. I mean EVERY BOUNDARY. I have to admitt it gets very tiresome and frustrating. But here is the great thing about my "2 almost 3" year old...he is smart. I mean really smart. So just when I think I am about to have steam come out my ears, he wises up. He wraps himself around my legs. "I love you Mommy. I sorry." How can you stay mad at that? Liam truly is a sweet soul. He is "2 almost 3" and that might be working against him right now but who he "really" is still shines through. He really is a smart, sweet, mild tempered, incredibly loving, and extremly happy kid. From the moment he was born, he was all of those things. He slept through the night the first night he was born. Never made a peep until the next morning. I remember being worried that he was so mild. I expected screaming and tears and lots of them. I guess he is making up for now but thats okay. I know my "2 almost 3" year old will be "3 almost 4" before I know it and this boundary testing problem will be behind us. So for now, I am going to stand my ground. He will most likely stand his too. But thats okay because I know who he is and we will get through this.
