When Polkadaisies & Southern Charm Portraits swirl, I want to twirl...Part 3

Sadie has earned the "sassy" name, but I can't quiet put a name on this one. Is he rotten or what? I look at this picture and it keeps making me think of the sweet picture Rebekah posted on her Southern Charm Portraits site of Reagan recently (Easter picture). You will know it when you see it. Rebekah made the comment that she could get anything she wanted with the look and it is so true. If Rebekah and Daniel wouldn't give it to her, I would! It's not that I have the same emotion at all when I look at Reagan's picture and Gavin's picture, because the emotions I feel when I look at them are from one end of the spectrum to the other. I'm looking at this picture, I almost laugh out loud because of the realization that I SOOOOOO have my hands full. Well, I didn't just come to that realization, but every day something reminds me of my over flowing understanding that little girls and little boys are so different, especially mine! I am constantly having those moments where I know Super Nanny would have her finger in my face telling me how bad I handled the situation. Just like last night when I told Sadie to just give it to him so he would stop crying. Logically, I know I am teaching him that crying gets him his way and that the next time he wants something he is going to cry, but in my moment of despair, it just seemed like a solution. I do take responsibility for a lot of his behavior because he is such a mama's boy (Richard works hard at brainwashing him though, but it will never work. Once a mama's boy, always a mama's boy!) I give a lot of credit to his dad too. I know the history of his childhood adventures...also a mama's boy.

So...I need a name for this precious boy of mine that is for sure a keeper. I don't want him to feel left out.
