I haven’t totally figured out yet how to handle the whole privacy issue of blogs. With our other family blog, I started out with a public blog using code names, then I went private. I want this blog to be public, but don’t feel totally comfortable sharing a ton of personal details. I feel like it’s a delicate balance that I don’t have quite worked out yet.
Anyway, I thought I’d introduce you to our kiddos:
Big Brother – Our oldest is a first grader who isn’t too excited about reading, but can solve complicated math word problems in his head in about 2 seconds. He loves to tell jokes and have nerf gun battles, and he is pretty confident in his ability to share opinions and let you know what he’s thinking. He’s quite strong willed, but has a very sweet heart, and I know he’s going to grow up to be an amazing man of God.
Little Brother – Our three year old is active, silly, unpredictable, rough-and-tumble, and thoughtful. He can be contemplatively quiet one minute and bouncing off the walls the next. He loves his family and friends, and always wants to greet a loved-one with a hug or kiss. His sensitive spirit will make him a wonderful husband and father someday, and he will always be the one who knows how to have a good time!
Baby Girl – Our daughter just turned one, and is the sweetest, most easy-going baby we have ever met. She is always on the go, but has time to stop for a quick snuggle now and then. She adores the guys in her life, and loves to blow them kisses, wave at them, and mimic whatever they are doing. We can’t wait to see her vibrant personality continue to develop!
People often comment that we have our hands full, and it is true – they keep us on our toes! But they’re all good kids, and we love spending time with them. It’s such an amazing blessing to be their parents.
The boys are really excited about adopting a baby sister. Our oldest is learning all about Ethiopia and asking dozens of questions. Our younger son likes to talk about his “baby sisteh, who will have boo-tiful bwown skin.” It will be neat to see how they all get involved in planning and preparing in the months and years to come.
If you haven’t already read about how my husband’s and my story started, you can read a little about us here!
I know I have some readers who aren’t commenting. Why don’t you introduce yourself and say hello! We’d love to “meet” you!
