What will they be?

Against my better judgement I allowed Austin to play cowboy! He did make a cute cowboy though, but hate the gun!
The boys playing soccer.
My nephew James pulling the boys in the wagon!
Alex says..."look mom, I'm running!".
"mmmmm" Max is tasting his block.
Emerson can finally get on the Zebra all by himself now.



What will they be?


I have a question for all the mothers of small children out there. When you look at your kids do you see them as these cute little adventurous creatures that smile and babble at you or do you see them as what they will be in the future. I've found myself contemplating my children's future...a lot! I look at Austin and think "this kid will either be something amazing, like a doctor or a lawyer.Or he will be one of those kids that grows up and at 30+ is still sleeping in his old room with me doing his laundry and cooking his meals."He just has that personality that if he puts his mind to it, he can run the world. However, he gets frustrated easily so I can see him giving up if he can't do something right the first time. I hope he grows out of the frustration aspect. He is such an incredible kid. At 5 he says things that only an adult should say and his ability to comprehend is uncanny for his age. I really do think if he wasn't "foreign born" he could be the President someday. Hopefully DEMOCRATIC!!!! OK, sorry all you Republicans out there. Just wishful thinking on my part! He really does that personality that would be great for politics. Let's just hope he's not as shady and slimy as most politicians. As far as the triplets go, they are all so different. And their personalities change so quickly. What they where at 6 months old is completely different than what they are at 13 months. Emerson is my cautious baby. He walks, but is afraid to fall so he holds on as long as possible. He sits and plays for hours, so contently. He will analyse everything in his path. But he is also my biggest Mommy's boy at this point. He's shy and reserved and prefers his mama. So as far as I can predict he will be a scientist of some sort. Maybe a research analyst. Or he will be the one on my couch at 40 eating a bag of chips calling for me to get the remote for him. Alexander is Mr. Personality. This kid is bound for greatness. I can see him being an airline pilot , meeting and greeting all the passengers with a smile and a hand shake. He is so adventurous. He will try anything and go to anyone. He flashes those big blue eyes and everyone melts. So I think "yeah, maybe a Pilot or a male model!". Max is a hard one to peg. He is my dare devil. Doing first than thinking about it. He is easily adaptable. He will go anywhere but is leery of people he doesn't know. He's not really a social kid. He could care less about strange people and mostly is just happy doing his own thing. I would think he might be a writer. More like a Novelist rather than a script writer. Something he doesn't need to be that social for. Either way I think he will be my first to go of on his own. He will climb mountains in Nepal. He will sky the slopes in Switzerland and he will admire the Sistine chapel in Italy. And our new baby? I'll have to wait to analyze him until he's here, but so far I think he will be a bongo player in a Cuban band. At least that's what it feels like from the inside. I just can't wait to meet him. It's amazing how we think of our kids. I am in complete aww of my kids. They amaze me every day with the different things they say and do. I never thought I could love any one or anything they way I love them. It's truly unbelievable how far they all come in the little time they've been on this earth. Only time will tell what they will be, but like any mother, I will love and support them irregardless!
This weekend was fun. On Friday we all went to my Dad's house for my brother, Christians 20th birthday! I can't believe he's 20. Where does the time go? It just makes me want to savor every moment with my kids! Anyway, the boys had a great time running around and exploring the new environment. They chased the cats and where quite content to be passed from family member to family member eating cake. On Saturday we went to Davids Aunt's annual Bratwurst and beer party. It's always nice to see those of his family that we don't see often. The food is so amazing and the boys had a blast running around their huge yard in Grand Island. Austin ran with all his cousins. He dressed like a cowboy and played soccer and football. He was upset to leave but the boys where exhausted because they refused to nap the whole day. They where just so busy. Max was hysterical. I really don't think he knows he's just a little boy still. He tries his hardest to run with the big boys and grab the ball. He was running from one side of the yard to the next just laughing and playing. Emerson and Alex spent the whole day in the arms of the Aunts and their Oma. They loved the attention. I brought lots of toys and they played and loved to be pulled in their wagon. All in all it was a fun filled weekend. I was glad we got out since it looks like Fall is finally arriving. Not that I have any problem with that. In fact I welcome Fall with open arms. Being pregnant, I enjoy the crisp air for better sleeping and I would much rather be curled up on the couch watching my boys play on the floor than be outside in the heat and humidity. Next weekend will be a nice fall weekend. A friends baby turns 1 so we have a party and we are going pumpkin picking on Sunday. I can't wait. Fall is my favorite time of year!!!!!!
