Adjusting to two

Do these sweet little things test my patience? Na...there too cute right?
Lincoln has actually been adjusting very well to having a new baby brother. But he is....fun....to keep up with. He is so full of energy and curiosity. And so, it's true I have been losing my patience, a lot.
And as I am asking him to the nth time to stop jumping from the window seal on to the couch, I have to remind myself that he is not TRYING to drive me to my breaking point, he is just a toddler whose needs are not being met. Mental, emotional, physical? If he is jumping of the walls, literally, then I need to take him outside to exercise a little bit.

So as I finish nursing Spencer and walk into the kitchen to see this.......

"Fat cake mamma, Fat cake!"
(That's what he calls cake)

What needs of Lincoln were not met you ask?
I forgot to give him a snack.

I think y'all just need to fly away for a few days---like to Tennessee. A change of scenery will help, right?

Actually, Lincoln sounds like a very typical "almost-two-year-old."
