Left: Finally got around to coloring the eggs 🙂 Right: Spring picture of my handsome middle child. Even though technically I have 3 middle kids, the older boys all kind of seem the same age to me since they are quite close in age. Azure on the other hand definitely acts like a middle child, he needs extra reassurance and pushes to be heard. He’s also my most sensitive and loves to bond with visitors and friends.  I certainly felt the middle child syndrome growing up and since he also shares my sun sign, I relate quite a lot with my book loving artistic child.
