Oh, man this kid is a charmer!
People stop us everywhere to tell us how cute he is and then to tell us how young we look. (guess some things are cross cultural! I keep assuring them I'm not a teenager...)
*Simon knows his name now
*Simon can say please although it sounds like "pleuchese"
*Simon has excellent slurping and chomping skills, just excellent.
*Simon randomly wants to take baths, really, really long baths
*Simon sleeps very well
*Simon takes up the entire bed as he rotates 360 degrees all night long
*Simon gives amazing hugs
*Simon loves practicing the names of all the family members
*Simon is a ridiculously picky eater. Ahh, another one to add to the family!!
*Simon yells all the time when he talks (imagine the crazy chinese man on karate kid)
*Simon's eyes will eat you up
*Simon has to go to the bathroom every 10 minutes
*Simon loves watermelon juice and hates watermelon
He is such a remarkable boy. I lay awake at night and can't believe he is actually mine and he is actually here with me. So many miracles wrapped up in such a small body. I feel like being near him is like walking on Holy Ground because God is so clearly present in every single ounce of this story.
