One of my favorite parts of being a mom has been discovering my kids’ personalities. They are each so different and yet so similar too. Soren and I have been amazed to see what little or big parts of us come out in each of our kids. Easton is a tiny replica of Soren in almost every way. He is built the same, has the same talents, and has almost all the same feelings. The only thing we can tell he got from me is his fear of getting in trouble. He and I both get ‘the sweats’ whenever we are in trouble, and he even gets scared for others. One of his least favorite shows is Curious George because George is always getting into mischief. Easton get so scared for George! It’s hi-lar-ious.
Kesler looks like Soren, or like my dad actually, but he got a lot of my insides. He is the sweetest kid ever and so funny. I am amazed at how clever he is. But he is also really vengeful, like me, unfortunately. Neither he nor I can take a joke, so don’t even think about spraying us with the hose or shooting us with a dart. We’ll get so angry! And he is extremely emotional too. His highs and lows cannot be counted throughout the day – something I think I’ve felt before as well.
Knox is the only one who looks like me so far. I love that when I see him he really looks familiar to me in a different way than my other boys. He is also the happiest baby ever, but we aren’t sure who he got that from. It must be Soren because I know I’m not that happy naturally! Knox is the most in LOVE with Soren of all of our kids. He jokes with Soren and they both get their crazy fun on together.
I’m so grateful to be a momma to these boys. They are so much fun and I think they make me a little more fun too. Have a great rest of your weekend with your family!
