Daddy's Boy

These were taken last week in Venice and I love them.

Macen has gotten to be quite the daddy's boy and I think he is going to have a hard time with the upcoming year long deployment. We have been trying to explain to him daddy will have to leave for a long time to help other people and we know he doesn't fully understand. However, his emotions are showing us he does comprehend a big change is coming. He gets very emotional when we tell him no, like no he can't have fruit snacks in the afternoon (its an out of town treat for him). A month ago, he wouldn't have had an emotional breakdown over it. He would whine and do his fake crying and then get over it. We are getting tears and inconsolable fits. I'm sure some of it is his age and developmental changes he has been going through lately but it really started when we began to tell him often that daddy will have to go away soon. He knows life will be changing soon.
