(the nickname she's had since she was a baby)
Kate's eldest, an avid reader, appendectomy-survivor, vegetable loving wonder-child. She will let you know amazing things about life if you can spare a few minutes to listen.
(His baby name, "Mean Bean" depending on his mood...)
Matt's little man, Aptly defined as "Boy. (n); a noise with dirt on it" As well as a smile as bright as an exloding star and giggles more infectious than MRSA. He's like a dirty-noisy-MRSA-star.
(the nickname she's had since she was a toddler, since it sounds like one of my favorite literary characters when proceeded by her name "_____ Bucket")
Kate's Middle Girl, a tomboy in princess gear who is rougher, tougher and dirtier than the other three combined. She's also a Jedi.
(also "Little Bit")
Kate's baby girl. I think she has an actual name but being the youngest, it (and she) is often forgotten. We normally find her on top of tables and chairs and fireplaces and swingsets. Often wearing a diaper. occasionally not. She is brilliant and cute and scares the everlovin' shite out of us.
(aka "_____ Bear")
The "glue baby" who holds all of us together... the only genetic child Matt and Kate have together, Elijah is a joyful little man who has blessed our family in many many ways in his short time here so far...
