William is on the verge of giving up his naps. I can hear him bouncing up and down in his crib, having a conversation involving Kitty, Chester, and Kipper Doggy. "Kitty, you okay? Kiss your boo-boos?" Life with babies, kiddos, growing, changing, developing little people, is that your world is constantly changing. Shifting. Evolving. It's hard to hold gently. It's hard not craving the security of a known routine or habit. But, that's not how it works. You center yourself--however you do--and let the world move you however it needs to. As beautiful and startling as the seasons changing.
