As most parents say, time is flying by. I guess it's not so apparent when you don't have kids because you're not documenting every month as a milestone. It's hard to believe that Calder is almost a year old. The first year seems to fly by...maybe because the first few months are tough and then the fun ages start and you never want them to end. Calder at 10 months is pretty much a dream baby. He is happy 95% of the time, he adores his sister, he adores his mama and he just brings so much life and happiness to our family. The other 5% of the time is the middle of the night and I make him cry in hopes that he will put himself back to sleep and he usually doesn't. He makes me want to have more babies just to prolong the having a baby in the house phase.

Goofy grin always on his face

The reason I don't plan to have other babies is because I have a 3 year old. Kidding. Kind of, but not totally. It really is such a fun age because of the curiosity, the independence, the ability to speak and have meaningful conversations, the sense of humor and the lack of self consciousness. But, all of those reasons are the same reasons that 3 year olds can be sooooo difficult. Darby is a "spirited child" so every one of those attributes is more dramatic than in a non-spirited kid. I know that her tenacity and her passion will serve her well as she gets older, but man, it can cause some fights.
