Jordan continues to grow in every way imaginable, ask amazing questions, and make cute comments. Here is one of our interactions from this month.
"Look Mom! I'm perfect. There is no cough here!"
"Jordan, you are perfectly cute! Not perfectly healthy!"
"Will I ever be perfectly healthy?"
"If you eat all your fruits and vegetables and all your supper, you could be perfectly healthy?"
"Okay! I'll think about it. Can I have some chocolate?"
Ironies abound here with this beautiful boy!
My teenager continues to grow in humor and stature. He is definitely taller than me now and looks the part of one of the pretty boys we see here on Korean television.
He looks the part a little too well. We were in a restaurant on Sunday and the waitresses were teasing him. They were asking if he had been on TV recently. He blushed at this. He actually turned beet-red when the waitresses and a few of the people we were sitting with starting to comment to actually say "Pretty Boy" right in front of him. I tried to get to ease the moment for him, but they just kept saying "Handsome!"
I reminded him when we get home that "Handsome is as handsome does!" I was encouraging him to study for his exams which start at the beginning of next week.
The shot below is one taken at the University I teach at earlier in November. He wasn't thrilled that I took this picture because he wasn't smiling. A great profile though!
Aidan continues to be my child who just wants to be the good kid in the family. Whenever I am angry or upset with the something in general or with the boys specifically, he will ask, "But, Mom, I'm good, right? I didn't make you angry?"
99% of the time he hasn't done anything wrong except maybe be ten minutes late for our afternoon tea. (Yes, this child continues to love afternoon tea time but without the cookies!).
