Nicholas is without. a. doubt. the LIFE of our family. He is wild and crazy and funny and naughty and everything that reminds me of myself on the inside... but uninhibited. Just recently he put all the couch cushions on the floor and was dancing and jumping from cushion to cushion when he slipped and fell on his mouth. After crying for a few minutes and wanting to get down and play I realized his tooth didn't look quite right. Sure enough, he cracked it off at the root. And now we have Nick. The toothless wonder.
And teeth or no teeth this boy does NOT stop living!
One of the few peaceful moments we have in the house is when Nicholas is playing on some form of apple product.
Nick has a natural athletic ability that never ceases to surprise me. He shoots basketballs all day long in a little hoop he has in the driveway and makes an amazingly high percentage of them! He even dribbles the ball! Watching him play is like watching a mini basketball practice session! And if he isn't playing basketball he is running or riding his bike, chasing his brothers or sister, wrestling his Daddy or just screaming at the top of his lungs.
Something else unique about Nicholas is that he insists on dressing himself. He loves to pick out his own clothes and he has some STRONG opinions about what he wears.... needless to say they aren't always appropriate. :)
From the time he was a baby he has been making us laugh... and I expect he will make us laugh for years to come.
We love you Nicholas! We love your amazing sense of humor, your insanely long eyelashes, your crazy voices, your silly sayings and even your naughtiness. We are so grateful God gave us such an amazing and special boy!
