Those Adorable Boys

I came across the third picture in this group the other day and it prompted me to find the other two. All three pictures were taken when the boys were between 12 and 18 months. What a wonderful age!

They were intensely curious, happy-go-lucky and thrilled with making LOUD noises.

They would greet their dad or me as though we had been gone for days when it had only been a half an hour. Their favorite place when they were tired or not feeling well was cuddled up in my lap.

When Spencer was not much older than in this picture, a neighbor said to me with tears in her eyes, "God invented the teenage years so you will be able to let them go when the time comes". I smile at that now, 'cause I get it. That's the bittersweet part of being a parent. You have to let them grow up.
