This is the update on Preston. He is my baby boy. He is our jokester and our clown. He will be an amazing practical joker when he is older. He desperately wants to grow up, and be big like his brother. So everything Tegan does, he has to do. Usually he cant do it, but it is so cute to watch him try, and usually fail! The he cries, and Tegan will come help him. Then they run off to play, and the cycle begins again!
He is the one people run to, and want to play with all the time. We have a hard time with this, as people want to take him out of arms, and don't respond well when we say no. He is still seen as a baby, and that bothers him. He will be 4 in a few months, and does not like it when people forget that!
Right now, his life consists of playing, sleeping, and eating! He will begin kindergarten in a few months, but right now he fights off jealousy when Tegan leaves everyday.
In some ways, it would be fun to have his life. Right now his biggest decision is who to marry! His list changes daily and includes:
Maggie ( the dog)
He will be setting marriage records I think.
He is also teaching us patience. He can not sit still, and is constantly touching something. That is hard for us, as Tegan is the exact opposite. But its okay, he is who is! We also see reflections of Renee and I in him as well. In the way he walks, in his actions, and speech.
He loves to ride his bike, and play basketball. He wants to take the training wheels off, but he forgets to pedal sometimes when he sees something interesting, so that cant happen yet.He too loves to eat, especially candy and pastries. He loves eggplant as well, though he is not nearly as picky as his brother. In fact, if Tegan is not sure about something, he will ask Preston to try it first! In short, he is an amazing boy. He is exactly who we needed, and we love him more every day!

Update on the boys:
I am taking a break from only posting pictures on the blog, and want to give an update on the boys.
Both of them are doing amazingly well. As we say all the time, they are exactly the right kids for us. Father could not have done a better job picking them out for us!
My little man. He is growing so fast. Grandma brought some pants from America for him in August, and we already need to buy more. He is the joker, the athlete. He has so much energy, and excitement in all he does. His handsome smile lights up a room, and people are dawn to him. Not because of how little and cute he is ( like they are Preston) but because of his smile and life.
He is doing very well in kindergarten, and with his Chinese. He does not use it at home, but he has surprised many people with what he can say and do in that language. He is learning to read, and has just discovered how easy it is! He has American school in the afternoon with Mommy, and is doing great there as well.
He has lost 2 teeth, and the 3rd is almost ready. He is a great protector, he loves helping others, and taking care of his brother. He loves eating eggplant, McDonalds, and drinking milk tea-and is not happy if we don't get the eggplant at least once a day!
Just yesterday, we realized something for the first time. He walks like me, and his speech is like Renee's. We can have the whole nature vs. nurture argument….but listen to him talk, and watch him walk…there is no question he is our child!
He is compassionate, and caring, always thinking of others before himself. I literally could go on and on. But I wont. But I am so proud of him, and so excited to see the person he is becoming. I love you little man!

Michael Jackson lives in Changsha! He actually did a really good job, we have never seen anything like this in China before. Usually the street shows are kids, begging for money after doing a few acrobatic tricks, old people playing an instrument badly, or blind people singing on the bus.
