I captured this sweet moment while at the soccer field this morning. It wasn't raining but Max and Naomi had to have the umbrellas up and ready to go if needed. As I sat next to them I listened to Naomi humming Jingle Bells while coloring in her Hello Kitty coloring book and watched Max go through his candy bag nonstop asking me if he can have another treat.

They are such a gift. Completely opposite. Naomi is very independent and is starting to be a little mommy as she listens to the boys fight and marches right to where they are at and says "Boys! Stop fighting right now. That is enough of this." She is mostly quiet and loves to be helpful. Naomi loves to play with her my little ponies, unicorns, and pretend to be a kitty with Noah as her owner. I love when she asks me to color with her. The pictures are always like a rainbow and filled with color.

Max is very dependent on us. He asks for help with just about anything and needs constant direction for what he is doing. He takes his sweet ole time doing his daily jobs and dilly dally's around getting involved in building with legos or reading a book when he is supposed to be cleaning up. Piles follow him everywhere he goes. Max is very loud and highly wired. Some days I just don't know what to do with his hyperness but I do love that he has such a great energy in life. He plays with all his heart in whatever he does.

Our hearts are always happy when Max gets a book Naomi likes from the school library when she is sick without us even asking. Naomi is just as thoughtful to Max when he is out of school for the day and brings him his work and explains in detail what he needs to do. They don't play together much in their classroom at school but I think they are unconsciously watching out for each other. We often forget Max and Naomi are our twins because we are so used to them being with us and we see such differences in them yet they are bonded in a way that is unexplainable because they are simply just part of each other.

Love the photo and this is incredible journaling. It is fun to read about the two of them and their different personalities. I feel a scrapbook page waiting to happen :)
