Definitely mine

One thing I love about being a mom is watching the different personalities of my kids develop. And to see how much they are like me or Ryan.
Sometimes it is scary how much they are like me, or even sad when I see in them some of personality traits that I also have, that I don't like about myself.

But there are also the traits that are just there.
The other day I realized just how much Eli is like me.
I went in his room to check on him before I went to bed, and this is how I found him:


Sleeping on the floor, on the heater vent, with a blanket over him.
I love doing this. (Not sleeping on it, but sitting on it).
I am always cold in the winter and I never seem to be able to get warm, unless I sit on the heater vent, in a blanket, getting toasty warm.
Eli is so much the same in this regard. He gets cold easy and always wants to sit on the heater with me.
Hallie on the other hand is just like Ryan. She is always warm, never wants covers, and is constantly asking me to, "turn down the heat," in the car because she is "just so hot!"
That boy is definitely mine!

I'm with you....I love watching my kids' personality traits develop. It's so funny. I always say that I never realized how truly obnoxious some of my characteristics were/are....until I saw them in my CHILDREN. ;o)
