Time is flying! It seems like yesterday our lives were crazy...a boy starting kindergarten, a newborn at home, and a newborn in the NICU. It has now been over 3 years since those days. Now we have a 3rd grader and two 3 year olds.
David is still a smart boy who loves to read and learn about science related things. He can easily read a chapter book in a night. It's hard to get him to put down books once he starts. He "zones out" when he is interested in anything... books, tv, whatever. He likes to be right and gets mad at himself when he gets anything wrong. He is a sweet cuddly child but is also a talker. He loves to have friends and can be loud and wild.
Dillan is a lot like David. He loves to sit and have someone read to him. He likes to learn. He is hard-headed with a capital H. If he wants to do it, everyone is happy. If he doesn't want to do something, everyone is unhappy. He will sit in the floor and not budge. No kind of punishment will change his mind. Forget it. He is a cuddly kid. He likes to dance and is often caught bobbing his head in the car. He also likes to sing. He gives big kisses and hugs. Dillan's new saying is "Guess what?" He says it all the time.
Daniel is a character. Period. He is silly and mischievous. He likes to make a pooting sound after most of his sentences. He has the cutest little grin when he does it too. He likes to take things from his brothers and then whine about it when they do something back. He can think of all kind of excuses to get up when it is time to go to bed. I'm cold...well cover up. It's dark...yes it's night time. What's that sound?...there is no sound. He's like a little monkey and can wrap his little body around you. He doesn't like to share his mommy and will push, kick, or do whatever it takes to get David or Dillan off of me is he is sitting with me.
I now realize why Josh and I were sometimes told to pretend there is a box between us in the car. These three can drive me nuts when we are in a car. They argue over the dumbest stuff and no one is ever wrong! Sometimes the DVD player is a lifesaver. Other times, they kiss and hug all over each other.
All I know is, God has blessed Walter and I with three precious boys...on good days and bad.
