We spent this afternoon running around after a very active and sweet toddler in Discovery Green. Vanessa and Mike are friends and neighbors of mine, and it has been so fun to watch their son grow up (just a few short months behind our daughter). I never dreamed he would have this much energy, but we had a blast taking family pictures in downtown Houston today. Just look at that playful spirit! Vanessa and I were chatting about how we think this may be one of those “best” times that we look back on — just like that sweet 6-8 month stage before crawling starts, at 14-18 months old kids are on the cusp of some big changes. It’s so important to cherish it, even if it’s exhausting!
