She’s becoming a real person. She’s awesome at communicating her needs. She already has such a personality that it’s almost scary–like I can kinda tell what kind of person she will grow up to be: her temperament, her sense of humor, her cheerful disposition?!? She is sensitive and forgiving and strong-willed, not easily distracted but tirelessly inquisitive?! Is it possible that these things are already defined at five months young? For those of you who have children that are older, did you find that your children’s personalities remain consistent over the years? Did your calm baby grow up to be a calm kindergartener? Did your rambunctious baby grow up to be a rambunctious teen? I’m so curious to hear your thoughts.
With that, I wish you all a peaceful, long weekend–and a very happy birthday to the brilliant Dr. King–I wonder what kind of baby he was?
