Silas is, and always has been, constant action–a verb. He really wasn’t a cuddly baby, and “sitting on the couch with him” as a toddler meant that we sat on the couch and he crawled all over us. Silas is his own force of nature. He jumps, flies, runs, wiggles, dances, laughs, and sings. We love his exuberance for life!
Cooper, on the other hand, is a noun. He’s our mellow teddy bear. He loves to snuggle and will lay on his tummy on the carpet just to relax for a minute. We call him “The Coop.” He’s shy and prefers to be held by Mommy or Daddy. Cooper likes to wave and give high fives. I treasure his round little head resting on my chest.
