All About My Kids...starting with Henry



Instead of going into detail about each child in my Christmas letter, I decided to post on my blog. That way, if you’re not interested, you can just look at the pictures! I decided to start with Henry first…

Henry will be four next month; he’s my baby and when did that happen? Henry makes my days fun and awful, sometimes simultaneously. He is constantly vying for control, annoying everyone in his path, and trying his hardest to make us all lose our patience. He is also a “lover,” I think it’s the Italian in his blood. I have had to tell him so many times not to kiss my rear end and he smothers me with kisses, sort of a mixture between Pepe Le Peu and Gomez Addams.

Henry is going to be one of those men who grabs a book before he heads to the bathroom for #2. He likes to sit for so long that he looses circulation in his legs and then complains that they hurt. The other day he was sitting, and I asked if he was done. He says, “No, not yet.” I said, “Your legs are going to hurt” and he says, “Oh, okay, actually I’m done.” Just today he gets off the toilet and goes “Ohhh…my legs hurt again!”

Henry loves superheros, football (because of what they wear, duh! helmets!), baseball, guns, Diego (it’s a TV show), and anything his sisters are currently playing with or think is wonderful. He eats all the time and charms everyone. He makes me laugh out loud all the time and it’s a good thing because he makes me yell (out loud, of course) more than I care to admit.

Henry. :-) I never forget the day I took photographs in fron of SBC. I asked him to give me a smile, to show his teeth. He shook his head and said he only showed his teeth when he brushes them.....
I love your blogs, Mandi!
