i'm so proud...

i know everyone thinks that their child is really smart, but my child is honestly a genius. no really. (don't worry people, i am joking... a little bit). this morning joel was begging me to help him put together this new fish puzzle i picked up for the boys last week. i had to get in the shower, so i told him to work on it by himself and that i would help him when i was done getting ready. i came out of my room and was shocked to find that joel was just finishing putting the 50-piece puzzle together all by his lonesome. i gushed at how proud i was of him and i don't think i've ever seen him smile so big. it was so cute.

and, of course, like most little boys, his favorite part of putting puzzles together or building a tower with blocks is messing it all up when he's done.

I've been debating whether or not to try puzzles with Jack because he has been so interested in my 500 piece ones and less than helpful. Maybe I should give it a shot. Kadin looks so much older now! But I guess its been 8 months since I saw him last.

I never doubted that your children would be genuises--just like their mama (and dada, I'm sure, though I don't really know Ben so I cannot attest to his genuis)....
