18 Months

You've gone from this...

To This...

Here's the thing... I want to halt time. I want to put it in stop mode. I want time to standstill. Just for a bit. So I can soak it in. Breathe in the moments that I miss, the moments that matter, and the minutes when nothing else matters except for he, I and my husband.

This age is magical. One of my best friends, Angela, kept telling me that 18 months is the best age and I kept not believing her until we got here. The curiosity, the personality, the loyalty, the independence, and the ability to love has proved to me that once again that being a parent just gets better with time.

To you, everything's funny
You got nothing to regret
I'd give all I have, honey
If you could stay like that
~Taylor Swift "Never Grow Up"


  1. You are ABSOLUTELY correct. My favorite time was when Luke was 18 mos. So curious, so dramatic, so into everything and everyone. Their little minds are big, big sponges taking it all in and saving it forever, you should do the same!

  2. 18 months is such a fun age, and it does really continue on for awhile! Brayden has been so fun at 20 months as well. Incredible how time flies!
