The boys started kindergarten last fall and are both doing well! AJ is an independent introvert who nevertheless makes friends easily. He has an advanced sense of humor for his age, is meticulous and artistic, and has just started taking gymnastics, which is well-suited to his small, wiry frame.
MJ is a textbook extrovert with a kind heart and a loving nature. He is loud and has difficulty sitting still for long, or refraining from immediately blurting out every thought that pops into his mind. He makes friends wherever he goes and jumps right into any new social situation. He got glasses this fall and is playing basketball and enjoying it.
My biggest surprise in having these twin boys has been in how different they are! Most times nowadays, people don't even realize that they are brothers, let alone twins. They look different, and MJ is about 30 pounds heavier and 4 inches taller than AJ.
Here are some recent photos of AJ & MJ. The second photo really shows the difference in size between them.
Happy Birthday, my loves, and many more!
