Calvin's meme

Calvin here, I was tagged my little buddy Sam.

1. Out of all the 3 c-sections mommy had to have, the one involving me was the worst(she was knocked out for Finny's cuz she could feel the cutting). When they handed me to her she gave me a little kiss and said "ew, please clean him up." Mommy feels bad about that now since she knows how snuggly and sensitive I am. She was shaky for hours and when they asked for a name, mommy just gave them a look. The next day she named me Calvin Jack. There is a Calvin on daddy's side of the family. Jack was thrown in just cuz mommy liked it.2. Even though my name is Calvin, nobody calls me that. You are probably surprised to hear that since mommy always writes Calvin on the blog. Thing is, everyone calls me Gege(hard "g" as in go). Mommy has been meaning to post my nickname for a while, but she does not really know how to spell it without sounding like gee gee(as in gee whiz). Trixy spelling! But that is what Finny has called me pretty much since birth and it stuck.

3. I'm very silly. I like to walk around saying stuff like "I'm a fox". And whenever mommy asks "how are you?" I say, "I'm 2."
4. I always try to copy my big brother Finn, but mommy thinks I have my own unique style. For example Finn likes to give "thumbs up" for yes, while I like to give "index finger up" for yes. And Finny says "No way Jose", while I say "No Jose Jose".

5. Mommy and I have a special food arrangment. Mommy loves the flavor of apples and cinnamin oatmeal, but hates the little apple chunks. She picks them out and gives them to me because I love them. And we also like to share Raisin Bran. I like to pick the raisins out to eat them and leave the flakes behind. Mommy likes the flakes but hates the raisins. We are very efficient.
6. I faithfully reward myself with a mini-marshmellow everytime I go potty. Mommy thought I'd be done getting treats for going potty a long time ago. But I've got news for you mommy! I'm never gonna give up my marshmellows!

7. At least a few times during the day you will find me lounging about with my chin cupped in my hand. It's one of mommy's favorite things that I do.
8. I'm pretty easy-going. I often walk around with my pants on backwards. When we went ice-skating with our church, Finny wouldn't wear the skates cuz they felt *funny*. I could have worn both skates backwards without noticing. I flopped around the whole skating rink the entire time and had a blast while Finny just walked besides daddy and I on the ice.
9. I don't like to sleep and will do anything I can to stay up as long as possible. Ever since I was a wee baby I would not nap for mommy. She used to think babies were easy til I came along and refused to sleep. When it's time to nap I tell mommy "I need to play one more reggae groove". And at night I'd rather hang out with mommy and daddy and chat their ears off endlessly.
10. My two favorite things in the whole world are the drums and my kitty(but you knew that!).

And even though drums have become my favorite instrument, I still like to rock out on my guitar every now and then.

  2. Loved learning more about your little GeGe. I always wondered why you called him that - now I know! I love cute nicknames! Your boys always seem so quiet and reserved when I'm around them but your blog proves that they are a silly bunch. I love getting to know them better. :)

  8. And did I mention- your hair looks AMAZING right after giving birth! Unlike most people's just after birth pictures, yours could be framed on the wall!

  11. oh, I loved learning more about your boy this way-- and more about you as a mommy too. I have to say that the picture of him with his chin in his hands is completely and totally heart-melting.

    yes, I have to agree with Megan-- you look AMAZING after just giving birth. What's your secret?? :)
