I don't write enough about the kids individually, so how about a post all about Adam? We'll get to the girls next.
Adam is the one I have a hard time resisting. No matter how bad he is, his little face just melts my heart. And, even when he's being bad, its so hard not to laugh. He likes to steal things from the girls and run away as fast as he can - and he's faster than them. He's also stronger for the most part. But when he apologizes it is so heart felt - he says a great "I'm sorry" followed by a kiss and a hug.
I love his blue eyes and his pale skin. I love his obsession with trains. I love that he could be entertained for half an hour by driving a matchbox car on my arms and legs. I love his mad scooter-riding skills. He is also great at puzzles. Oh, and I love/hate how good he is at ignoring me. It's funny, but frustrating. He'll just keep playing and totally ignore it when you ask him to do something.
Of all the kids, Adam is the hardest to understand. His words all run together - but I can understand what he's saying. My favorites lately are, "Mmmm, delicious!" and "You play with me, Mommy?" He has also turned into a great singer, and knows the words lots of songs including Twinkle, Twinkle, I Am a Child of God, and he is pretty good at his ABCs. He can count to at least 10, sometimes more, but he usually forgets the number 2. And if you ask him how old he is, he says either 3 or 4. He must hate the number 2.
Here is his precious face at less than 6 months old.
And again now.
I love watching Adam and Ben together. If you've seen them in person you know how much they are alike - both in their mannerisms and their looks (except for the pale skin and light hair).
And to think, I thought I wanted all girls.
