It’s time for me to tell you all about the youngest of the bunch. Baby Kermit is definitely the baby. All the kids give him special treatment. And he seems to get his way a lot. We have easily recognized that he is a funny mixture of Jem and Duke. Most like Jem because when he’s mad he goes silent. He doesn’t want to tell you whats wrong he just wants you to make him happy again. He’s like Duke in the way that Duke has to speak up for himself because he has big sisters and Baby Kermit has to speak up for himself because hes the youngest. He seems to have a special bond with all of his siblings. I can’t exactly explain it myself but it’s more than just being the baby.
Pooh is definitely his best friend. They spend a lot of time together and are sometimes inseparable.They also like to get into a lot of trouble together. I thought I knew what I was doing when it came to being a mom but I don’t know anymore on most days. When you put Pooh and baby Kermit together I question everything I ever knew about being sane and taking care of six kiddos.
I’m happy to say that he has finally started growing into being a preschooler. He is happily eating most of his food now. He loves to look at books and have Jem or Bubbles read to him. He loves to build with blocks or Legos and play with trains. Is it wrong that I think he’s the cutest out of the bunch? He takes the whole baby thing to a whole new level. Most days you won’t find him more than 5 feet from me. If he’s more than 5 feet away from me he comes and checks on me or checks in ever so often. I don’t know if he’s afraid I’m going somewhere or if he just doesn’t want to be out of reach of mom.
I didn’t expect to have a number six but I’m glad that I did. I think my life would be pretty boring without Baby Kermit. He keeps the days a lot more interesting. He knows just how to get into the right amount of things to make me want to quit. But in the same instance he will tell me that I’m his best friend and he loves me. He is a good reminder for me that when you think you might be in control God takes over and gives you another little person to make your heart fill full. I think being number six makes him loved the most. I cant wait to see him continue to grow and learn to be who hes meant to be.
