        This week has been a tough one with my little Jensen. Pushing boundaries and seeing how far he can take certain situations, talking back and being utterly defiant. It’s been a struggle but I am trying my hardest to kill him with kindness so to speak and not resorting to giving “time outs” like I used to in the past (clearly not working anymore) Instead offering solutions based on options. i.e.. instead of  “eat your dinner or you’re going right to bed”, I offer him a choice – “Would you like to stay here and eat your dinner or would you like to go straight to bed?” It takes his train of thought from, ‘this is what I want to do’ to ‘these are my choices’ . It seems to be working as of now but we’ll see how long until he catches on haha.

        29/365 ~ Hudson’s scar today. It will one day be so faint, as if nothing ever happened. But for now it serves as a constant reminder of how much this little warrior has been through and to make every day count.

        30/365 ~ This rarely happens. He is such a light sleeper, if I crack the door he’s up. But today he slept sweetly and let me snap a few photos…..with like 8 different cameras lol

        31/365 ~ This little man is getting so big. He’s now graduated to scrapping his own plate and putting it on the counter for momma. I sometimes just want to hold him in my arms forever and never let him go – or grow up for that matter.

         

         

         

        I loved looking through these. Such beautiful children and such gorgeous light you captured. I’m trying to be better at capturing my children in their everyday moments…thank you for the inspiration.

        You have such a beautiful family Jayme, and such a loving, tender heart for them. It’s evident in the words you write and the pictures you share. <3
