Throwback Thursday: Toddler Edition

The newest addition to my extended family, my niece Annie Lynn

This past weekend, my brother, SiL, and niece stayed with us, after not seeing them for over a year. As most of the parents here will be able to attest, a year in the life of a toddler is like a decade in real time. The cute, adorable, and well behaved baby pictured above has been replaced by what I can only describe as a gremlin after midnight. Needy, but not wanting to be held. Grumpy, with no desire to change that. Independent, yet wholly dependent on her parents to provide for her every need. How parents of toddlers ever decide to have another kid is beyond me, because this past weekend was exhausting. But then, she does things like this:

Passed out and snuggling with daddy πŸ™‚

And all is right with the world. Though Snickers says its just a trap, and we’d do well to not bring around one of our own πŸ˜€
