Perhaps you remember this post from a little over a year ago.
So it has been just over a year since Simon joined our household. He has adpated well to the craziness of living with us. The children still bemoan the fact that he feels he must sit as close to me as possible when we are just hanging around the house, but they have gotten used to it. I think Simon thinks he is just another one of the kids–the most special one who must always be by Mommy. He and Charis have had their tossels as they both jockey for position. In the end, though, I think Simon has learned that he is #5 in the pecking order of children (the rest come in no particular order of course, ahem . . .)
So raise your coffee cup to our first year with Simon. He has been a happy (albeit sometimes smelly) addition to the family.
