Since I did a little post on Sam last week I thought I would do a little update on what these cuties have been up to lately...
Sophie Lou. She will be 5 here in just a few weeks. 5! How can that be? Sophie brings such a fun and girly dynamic to our family. She is girly girly girly, but she loves to play HARD with her brothers too. She has recently been very into Wonder Woman (notice the headband)... that way she can still be girly and play super heroes with her brothers at the same time. Sophie gets along well with everyone in the family. She and Max are best friends but she also has developed a super close relationship with Jack recently too. She loves to pick him up by his armpits and swing him around. She is definitely the big sister!And of course Sophie loves her baby brother. She dotes on Sam whenever he is around and loves to hold him. Sophie is also starting to read pretty well and is very exited to be doing Kindergarten this year.
Max P. is really starting to grow up. He is just a few months shy of 7 and we are really starting to notice some maturity coming down the pike. Max still loves animals and especially loves making up his own animals, drawing pictures of them, and then teaching us all sorts of facts about them. It is especially precious when he pretends to make animal documentaries... they usually involve him narrating in a British accent! Max has been taking piano lessons for a little while now and I have been very impressed with his progress. He loves to go to his lessons and most of the time doesn't mind practicing. He has also really taken off with reading. He has gained a lot more confidence and I think that has made a big difference in his willingness to try to read more difficult words and books.
And Jack Jack. I can't believe he is going to be 3 soon. Jack is such a fun agreeable little guy. Although his new thing is asking to do something and immediately following it with, "don't say "no" Mommy". It cracks me up. Jack's favorite thing in the whole world is his Papa. He constantly wants to go to Papa's house. He even wanted his hair cut so that he would look like Papa and also has decided to have his birthday party at Papa's house. He likes to pretend to be Papa and will insist that we call him "Little Papa". Jack loves Mater from Cars and wants to have a "Cars 2 Birthday" :) He also loves monster trucks and tractors. He really looks up to his big brother and sister. He is also very protective of his little brother. He watches out for Sam and takes his role as big brother very seriously.
Nick and I could not be prouder of our little crew. It is fun to see all of their different personalities and watch as they all start to relate to each other and us differently. Such a blessing!
