As you’ve probably guessed, my husband and I are not the only ones in this wild house. There are 3 other nuts that fell from the crazy tree who you may want to meet. They are absolutely perfect, do everything they are told, and never make a peep. Wait…that was the fairy tale that I read before I got pregnant! These are my real children:
Cute, huh? Keep in mind, however, they were made to pose lovingly and like it…or else!
If you are still reading, you must be craving to learn more about each of one of them and where I get my writing inspiration from, so I’ll introduce them to you one-by-one…
Brynlie is our first born. She was the best baby…ever…and was the reason that we felt confident in having more children.
* Disclaimer: We weren’t prepared for how different the next two babies were going to be!
She is honestly so darn sweet to everyone and truly loves life. Nothing gets her down, except if someone is sad or hurt. It’s amazing how much empathy she feels towards others at such a young age.
As a side note, however, we have been fortunate enough to be going through some teenage mood swings, but as long as she is kind and respectful to others outside of our home, we can deal with things in private when something is bothering her. She has to be able to come home and let her frustrations out on somebody, right?! By the way…those are super fun days
Her Favorite Things:
Volleyball, track, announcing sporting events, animals of any kind, singing loud in the car & even louder in the shower, reality TV Shows (yes…she DVRs them all ), scaring people (she’s famous for hiding and jumping out of dark places—causing you to almost crap your pants)!
Eden is our second child and is our little spitfire. She is wise beyond her years and knows everything…just ask her!
She is really comical and very intelligent, which I guess makes her a funny smart-ass! I’m serious, though, some of the stuff that comes out of her mouth not only leaves you wondering how she would even know something like that, but also makes you laugh because that’s Eden and it doesn’t surprise you one bit!
Her Favorite Things:
Softball, basketball, volleyball, arts & crafts, helping me w/ whatever I am doing (whether I want her to or not), wearing fancy headbands & earrings, glitter, sequins, rhinestones, more glitter, and very flashy clothes (they don’t have to match, either—they just have to be shiny and colorful—think punky brewster and you’ll understand)!
Grady is obviously the ‘baby’ of the family and he sure brings a whole new perspective to things after having 2 girls! I am still trying to get used to all of the toy guns, soldiers, and swords scattered throughout the entire house and being asked if I want to be the bad guy or the ninja!
I know that this sounds so cliché, but he is honest to goodness ALL boy! He is so rough and tough and even walks around with his arms out like he’s holding 3 tires on each side! He does, however, have such a soft and sweet side to him, but that is only reserved for special occasions when nobody is looking!
His Favorite Things:
Baseball (I mean he seriously loves it), football, basketball, anything military, playing outside all day & night, Nerf guns of every shape & size (as well as shooting us with them), and also loves throwing live bugs on me & on his sisters!
Now you know a little more about my brood, but you don’t know everything…that would defeat the purpose of this blog 🙂
