The sweetest and the hardest thing about being a mom is seeing the little ones grow up. Every stage and milestones my babies hit, I was sure was my favorite stage. Right now, Kai's 12-15 month mark has been my absolute "favorite" -- so easy to please, forgiving, so smiley, and gives you kisses on demand...yep, it is THE perfect stage. When someone invents a stop-time-in-its-place machine, I will most likely invest in one. But until then I will take in every bit of slobbery kisses, sweet sleepy cuddles and scrunchy-face smiles as I possibly can.
