on January 27th my gorgeous strong willed child turned 10. and I have yet to blog about his greatness.

so here are somethings about my beautiful non-stop middle. "Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can: all of them make me laugh." -W.H.Auden

10 facts about Colten(according to his mom):

he is very kind, but not so patient.
he is a worrier. (natural disasters top the list of concerns)
he notices the little details others miss.
he has a unique way of learning...his brain fascinates me.
he has his own style.
he has a fantastic sense of humor.
he has great big brown eyes that melt me.
he is my smallest and my loudest.
he was almost named spencer jack -if colin would have won the great hospital name debate- I can't imagine colten being a spencer, or jack not being a jack! luckily after 3 days of being "babyboy", we agreed on colten.
and last but not least
he is an old soul.
10 things Coley likes (according to him):

playing outside/riding bikes
NASCAR and monster trucks
the Cavs and the Titans (but definitely not the Steelers)
his phone
video games
taco bell

10 things O dislikes (according to us both):

being told no
mean people
hannah montana
the jonas brothers
tying his shoes
riding the bus

how we love you!

I agree -- totally cool post. love reading all these things, both his input and yours...
You've got great kids, E -- I've always thought that, from the time I started following your blog. I'm keeping them in mind for my girls, lol! I can't remember if I've ever told you this, but I've always thought Cami (my littlest) looks like a girly version of Jack...they just have similar features or something. I'm probably the only one who sees that, though. ha!
