Toddler Tuesdays week 04/03

It's fascinating to watch as a toddler explores his new surroundings, we recently moved after living in the same home for 8 years. Both our kids were born in the home we left behind, both sets of grandparents were always a quick one hour trip away. We are now an 8 hour drive away or a 90 minute flight away. Of course it is different at our new home. We lived in a 4 bedroom house with a backyard that had our swing set and outdoor toys. We are now in an apartment it is completely different and new to us, specially for our kids. However the kids had new friends from the day we moved in and our toddler is enjoying the trees that sway to the beat of the wind. 

It is in these moments when we realize how much he is growing. As his older sister always says: "mommy wouldn't you like to freeze brother so he could stay cuddly forever?" {yes I do get teary eyed with that comment} and you know what I would love to freeze both my kids to stay this age forever, but I also understand that they need to grow, explore their world and enjoy life to the fullest. 

How do you feel when you see your toddler explore the world?
