Where did my sweet boy go?

I look back on pictures of Aidan when he was first born and I can't believe that the peaceful, tiny, helpless, baby in the pictures is the same rambunctious, loud, out of control, child of today. I swear I can't take my eyes off of him for a second! And he does things that I can't believe a 2 1/2 year old can come up with! From trying to put Emma in the dishwasher (because she's dirty) to dragging a chair into our laundry room to get the car keys, then unlocking the door to the garage and then opening the van door, climbing in and trying to start the car...no joke--he's diabolical. He also emptied out his toy box, laid it on it's side, rolled Emma into it, and then preceded to put all the toys back. When I asked him what on earth he thought he was doing, he said "all done play with Emma, put back." Where does he get this stuff?

That really is such a sweet picture! I LOVE holding newborn babies when they're so calm and little. That's so funny that he was putting Emma away with the toys! I love 2-year olds! Good thing you're writing this stuff down...they'll laugh about it in a few years and so will you!
