NOT the MUD!!!

We've have been flooded with TONS of rain over the past few weeks...well tons for us So. Californian's :) And while we haven't experienced major flooding, my backyard is still extremely soggy!

I have a question that really has no answer....WHY in the world do my little people become overpowered and confused about right and wrong when they see a backyard full of MUD!!! The very mud that their loving mama said, "DON'T PLAY IN THE MUD!!! Look me in the eyes and hear what I'm saying...don't play in the mud...don't play near the mud...don't even LOOK at the mud!!!"

An even better question to ask....Why in the world would this silly mama actually think her angelic children could resist the overpowering temptation of said mud! Silly, silly woman!!!

Poor unsuspecting son...he's just along for the ride...his sweet sisters are teaching him all the 'good' stuff and he follows suit without even putting up a fight :)

Now, I know it could have been worse...much fact, it has been...I just love my babes...mud and all!!

My FB status today: Walked into the kitchen to find Solomon barely hanging off the counter clinging to the sugar box for dear life...the sugar box that he was pouring in his MOUTH!!!!!!!!

I tell ya...this little man of ours is BBBUUUSSSYYY. I think I remember ending every post in China with how BUSY our little guy was ;) He is so much fun ,though. Solomon continues to amaze us with how well he is adjusting. Ohhh, how I'd love to know what he's thinking about all of this.

His english has begun to explode and his understanding is amazing. I would say that he often exhibits behavior of like a 2-3 yr. old but that's to be expected. I think recognizing that he acts a little younger then his age helps all of us to understand why he does what he does and to be a little more when he kicks down the really cool lego tower that his brothers have been working on FOREVER and then laughs hysterically about it and says "cooollll"....or when I find an ENTIRE roll of toilet paper in the toilet that he has been repeatedly trying to flush down the toilet....and the list goes on :) Needless to say, we have re-babyproofed our home and watch our little guy very closely.

He has the BEST and I mean BEST sense of humor. It is so much fun to watch with with him...and boy, is he a teaser ;)

I think the thing I am most grateful for over the last month is watching him return our love. He now comes up to us all on his own and wants hugs and kisses. He'll climb on my lap or daddy's lap and say, "I lub you mama or daddy." Melts me into a puddle, that's for sure!!!
My boys...the best of friends! That was our prayer all along that "I" and Solomon would become little buddies. God is GOOD!
