As I promised I want to update everyone on each of the kids. Tonight I picked the coolest of da toddler little boys out there: Callum!
Callum is doing just really well in everything that comes to being a little boy. When we were in Albuquerque everyone asked his name and he would reply "I'm Cally Jolly". That is how I describe him. He is the easy going "Joe Cool" in our family. Rachel and Harmon are both real hot heads just like Chris and I, Callum is not. He is the the thinker in many ways. He loves to not get involved right away but watch the world around him and than react. This makes him an excellent peacemaker.
The funnest part of Callum is his confidence. He has a swagger. For example when I ask him for a kiss he always just smiles and says "No thank you". Than you give up and he jumps into your arms and whispers softly: "I love you" and gives me a kiss. I will admit he just is always charming me that way. If I ask him to do anything he responds: "Oh yes please" or "Oh no thank you". These manners make a girl's heart melt but it is tough on me because I will ask him to do something and he is just so polite saying no that I feel guilty asking him to do it anyway. My favorite response he gives me is YUUUPPPP! I think he watches too much Storage Wars. He is always smiley though and is just a delight with to talk too.
In response to our most common question, yes he still has his hair. It is going from a cute thing to sort of a fun mission to see how long we can go. He enjoys it a lot. He loves the fun hairdo's and likes the attention. Of course we do run into the gender confusion so sometimes we specify by sign (see above). One day he will decide he wants "normal hair" and I will oblige but for now I'm glad he likes it.
Being so sick it has been wonderful to have my little ray of sunshine. He is a delight and I'm grateful for his smiles. He is a really smart special little guy and I'm glad to always have him by my side and glad he is a brother to Rachel and Callum. In a family of firecrackers it is nice to have a sparkler.
Last Note: I'm keeping Harm's update for last because there are some things going on that we will know more about on Wednesday. Don't worry, he is next for updates!!! Can't forget my little cool man ;)
