Jude turns 4


Oh Jude, you are something. 110% personality Exhausting a lot of the time. Humorous just as much. Our family wouldn't laugh half so much if you weren't around. You keep me on my toes! And humble. You certainly keep me humble at times. But just when I think there is no possible way I could tame you and I might just stop trying and let you be a wild monkey, you snuggle up next to me and give me a hug. Or you want to talk to me about God and Jesus dying and how sometimes we see crosses with Jesus on them and sometimes they are empty and since they are empty, that must mean Jesus came back to life and then you melt my heart. When we were in Italy and I mentioned going somewhere from the Bible you asked "Are you talking about the real world or the bible world?" and when I told you the Bible world WAS the real world, you were amazed! "From the bible? Here? in Real Life!?" I just love seeing your brain make connections! 

You've become so sociable this year. Last year you were a preschool drop out because of separation anxiety but we took a break (from preschool and church nursery and all the leaving mom things) and now you love preschool! And "church school" (homeschool co-op, its held at a church). And if someone starts talking to you at the airport, watch out because you'll just keep chatting! You just want to be in the thick of things. Which is probably the reason you're such a monkey. It's hard being the littlest sometimes. But you are determined to keep up with everyone else - and I'm pretty sure you'll succeed at that!
