Caleb and I are both the 2nd born and we often joke about how tough it is to be a middle child. To be somewhat overlooked. Don't get me wrong, I know why we're overlooked. It's because we're so easy. Ha! Hey, we have to hold on to something, right? ;)
Caleb and I are alike in a lot of ways, and I wonder how much of it has to do with birth order.
We often look at Ethan and see that his personality is a lot more like ours too. I can't be sure if it's birth order or personality, but it's interesting. For example, Ethan's more quiet, laid back and happy to NOT be the center of attention (unlike our first born Elliana). To be honest, so far he is easier in a lot of ways. Probably because he's so much like me. Again, don't get me wrong. In no way does that make him my favorite. I wouldn't change Ellie for the world.
When you're anything other than the first born child, quite often you don't get your own pictures and videos of just you-without any siblings in the picture. My sister Courtney (the youngest sister of my family)has made this complaint loud and clear. She always reminds everyone to get just as many pictures of their 2nd, 3rd, or however many children God gives them.
I think this is great advice and I always have her in my ear when I notice that I'm slacking in this area.
So, as I looked over this blog of mine, I already noticed that I don't have as many videos of Ethan as we had of Elliana. Oops.
The other day Ellie was napping and Ethan woke up early from his nap. He was in a great mood so I decided it was time to take out the camera and capture Ethan at this age. :) He is SO cute and so much fun right now.
We had a great time taking videos and pictures, just the two of us. I simply had to put them on here. I hope you enjoy his unbelievable cuteness as much as I do. :)
