This child is full of mischief.
In a given 10 minute period, he will have the entire contents of a bathroom drawer emptied and all around him.
By the time I realize how 'quiet' it seems, I will find this boy pulling out each diaper from his changing table and put them into his crib.
He will, in a matter of moments, climb into drawers, cabinets, and even our oven warmer (when turned off).
His favorite things are appliances.
Hiding in them, climbing in them, & just simply removing their contents.
He is a toothbrush stealer.
Jude has discovered a new grace about him to simply take a deep breath when the freshly-cleaned room is now littered with toys all over his floor. I'm proud of that big brother.
A few nights ago, I took the boys to Barnes & Noble. It was the typical scene. Jude was reading books quietly & Leland was walking around...taking books to strangers and indicating he'd like these perfect strangers to read them. As I would kindly try to apologize, these lovely people would begin the book when all of a sudden my cute little peanut would pass gas like a 70-yr old man.
I have this feeling he is going to always be the kid with plenty of stories to tell.
