It always amazes me to watch the boys develop their own unique personalities. They came from the same exact genetic makeup, but are completely different people.
G-Man takes risks. He is bold and a bit fearless. E-Dude is MUCH more cautious. You can almost see him evaluating his options and make a decision.
I love watching them in new situations to see what they will do. One of their little friends had a party at a local 'water park.' There were water slides, a lazy river, and a kid area designed for smaller little ones. E-Dude initially clung to me like a spider monkey, and wouldn't get down until he saw his brother splashing in the water. E-Dude found a rope ladder and began climbing up a structure that housed 2 slides and some splashing areas.
Once up there, G-Man took charge and shot down the smaller of the two slides, with E-Dude right behind. Then came the challenge. A bigger slide with a turn and rushing water. E-Dude went down fist and came out of the half tube in tears. G-Man came down with giant laughs and rushed to do it again.
Over and over they would both run up and G-Man would slide down, leaving E-Dude to happily splash about. G-Man got even more brave and practiced his kicking and scooping trying to swim. E-Dude enjoyed practicing his kicks, but spent quite a bit of time snuggled up with mom or dad.
How I love watching them become the people God has created them to be.
