Antwan, the warrior poet

Antwan's personality has always fascinated me. Anyone who reads my facebook, knows he's a walking "kid who says the darndest things." ( :  From the beginning, he has been strong-willed, but very sweet and gentle.  Brian used to call him a "warrior poet."  He's very strong and all-boy, but has the ability to show the compassion and sweetness that I never thought possible for a child his age. 

The moment that Lizzie arrived, he loved her.  He doted on her, protected her, and, just loved her.  As she got older, he wanted her with him, at all times.  If he was going in his room to play, he would call her in with him.  If she cried, he would look for a pacifier.  He was a natural.

This was beautiful, but scary when we didn't know, for sure, that we'd get to adopt her.  I worried about how Antwan (and William) would recover from losing her and, most likely, never seeing her again.  Thankfully, we never had to find out. 

He loves her and I love how close they are.  Being only 18 months apart, they'll only be one grade apart in school.  And, I think it's clear that nobody will ever mess with Lizzie, as long as Antwan's around. ( :

So, today I called, "Let's go outside!"  Antwan said "Wait, Mommy, I'm fixing Lizzie's hair!"
The only thing that surpised me was that Lizzie was letting him. ( :


  1. OMGosh! How sweet! They are gorgeous and his proud brother smile is amazing. And doing her hair...too too cute. I look forward to reading more about family.

  2. I've been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours as of late, but I never found any attention-grabbing article
    like yours. It is beautiful price sufficient for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made just
    right content material as you probably did, the web might
    be a lot more useful than ever before.

  4. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But
    maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    claymore down they are usually making an attempt to
    possibly alert them selves of any incoming enemies from a selected direction or get an easy get rid of by positioning it somewhere so sneaky (or blatantly evident) that someone
    will run past it without the need of knowing it. A single new addition is the China Lake Pump Motion Grenade Launcher, an innovative piece of war software that

    than listening to about new organizational developments past or hearing them from an outside supply that was informed of the
