I love having a toddler, someone to talk to, someone to play with, someone to make me laugh and vice versa. And someone to fetch me things. Toddlers are excellent helpers. I like having a little friend.
Beatrice is at this wonderful age where she mimics everything I do. I catch her playing with her dollhouse people and saying things like, "Mommy has to take a shower before Daddy gets home" and "do what Mommy says the first time..." She is such a character.
She is a little kid now. She does things for herself and wants to play all. the. time. This age may be my favorite thing ever.
Having a tiny baby is also pretty great. Someone to snuggle and sing to. A warm, fuzzy head to nuzzle anytime I want because this baby wants to be with her mama all. the. time.
Penelope is great for cuddling, she always smells great, and her smiles melt my stone cold heart. Ha! She has the funniest expressions and makes me feel needed. All. the. time. I love having a tiny baby to hold and make silly faces at. She is precious to the world with her bobble head and fantastic hair. She coos along to Jesus Loves Me when I sing in her ear. This just may be my favorite age ever.
Thankfully, I don't have to choose which age I like best. I have a toddler and a baby: the best of both worlds.
