A's pediatrician at the hospital walked in when my mom was visiting with the big boys and took one glance at John climbing chairs and staring excitedly at all of the monitor buttons just itching to be pushed. His words were "and this is the confident one." Hence his new nickname - CMC or Confident Middle Child.
That's our John. Confident. Courageous. And oh so Curious.
He can't help but draw attention wherever we go with his blue eyes, healthy cheeks, and inviting smile.
Lover of remote controls, television panel buttons, and climbing, he won't hesitate to pull down what he wants off counters and out of drawers. He's earned his Instagram hashtag "daredeviljp." (His middle name isn't Paul.)
He will wave hi and tell you bye, and I've never seen a kid with such a love to be tickled.
He laughs with his whole soul, and we love him so.
