|Caleb has a deep love for cats, real or stuffed. |
Here he is with his "Honey Race Juice."
Eli is one smart little dude! You tell him once and you can bet he'll remember it. Eli is a rule follower and always wants to please. He is such a good boy and knows his limits so he doesn't get punished nearly as much as his brothers. Eli is full of opinions and he isn't shy about sharing them or expressing how he feels about something. He's a bit of a motor mouth too, he can talk and talk and talk. He'll tell you anything you want to know from what he did at school today to how to build a tree house. He's very confident and he'll convince you that he knows what he's talking about. When I ask the boys something collectively Eli is always the first to speak up, he's kind of the spokesperson of the three. Eli takes our homeschooling activities very seriously and a lot of the times he finishes first and gets the least wrong. He's always been a very affectionate and tender boy. The best way to calm him down when he's upset is to offer him a hug and he'll just melt in your arms. Eli gets scared really easy and likes to say he doesn't want to try something because he's too scared. Like when we'd talk about our trip to the east coast he'd say he didn't want to ride on the airplane because it was too scary. Well when the day actually came he was more than excited to jump on the plane. He even proclaimed after take off that "this is not scary mami!"
Mr. T is our dorky triplet with impeccable bad timing and he's a bit clumsy too. Because of this he's also the most underrated of the three because there are so many good qualities about him. Thomas is very creative and figures out how to draw stuff and in turn teaches his brothers to draw the same things because they see how he did it. He also loves to write letters and numbers. He's also very independent and always wants to do things for himself. He also can go long periods of time playing by himself. Thomas seems to build the most elaborate and complicated vehicles with his lego's. The other day we got him a little lego set and he didn't want our help building it. He just looked at the picture on the box and built something that looked pretty darn close to the real thing! The boy just cannot sit still, he's always moving or kicking his legs even in his sleep. Which stinks because he almost always ends up in bed with us, but on the bright side I get to snuggle him first thing every morning! When Thomas wants his brother's attention he call them by saying "hey kids" and it's really funny to hear since I think he came up with it all on his own. He also always agree's with me when I compliment him about something, he'll say "si mami" and then go on to explain what he did or what he made.
