I had ideas about who would be the leader, who would follow along, and so on… Right now I was wrong. I thought Caitlin would be my little leader of the pack. She was always very demanding and vocal. Now she has become the ultimate snuggler. Criton has actually taken the lead as far as who everyone watches and tries to emulate. Haley follows her big brother everywhere. Whatever he does she wants to do.
They have some awesome little adventures getting into everything! I wonder as time passes how many more times the dynamics will change. Will Criton always be the instigator/ leader? Will Haley strike back out on her own or will she be his little side kick? Will Caitlin remain the little angel girl she has become? Those are the fascinating things about watching children grow… Watching them change, become their own little people, seeing the world through their eyes, experiencing life the way a child does, and watching all the stages they go through as they get older. I can not believe we are almost one. I can not believe Criton is walking everywhere and the girls are so close behind. I can not believe that I have been so blessed as to have my husband and five children in my life. Good and bad, easy and rough times, I can take comfort in my family. They keep me strong, they fill me with love and pride, and they make me laugh all the time.
