All I want for Christmas is these two right by my side, always. The holidays are always a little nutty but add in a wild 1.5 year old "man" to the mix and its doubly nutty! Mr. Axel Hawk is always on the go, wanting to play with every stick and leaf left on the ground. He wants to climb walls and do front rolls on a regular basis and basically gets down and dirty all day, every day! I think we will ask Santa for a bundle of twigs for Christmas! That'll save all of his elves the hard work of making toys that don't keep his interest for long enough.
As sweet and loving as my little boy is, he's quite the handful, keeping mama and dada on our toes and definitely testing our patience here and there. BOYS will be BOYS! Am I right?! Though his wild and adventurous demeanor drives me a little bonkers at times, it also is one of my favorite things about him. He's a curious soul, who wants to experience all that life has to offer and that makes for one proud mama. Every new discovery is something that will stay with us forever. Axel Hawk, you are intelligent, generous, loving, weird and wild. A mix that I wouldn't trade for even one full night of sleep. Who needs sleep anyways?!
Take a look at our family photo session below, showing the mood swings of a 1.5 year old and the love we, as parents have for each other and our little wild man.
