Kyle is a serious sweetie pie charmer. He always has been. From the time he was a toddler women have been telling me, "He's going to make a great husband for some lucky woman some day!" And it is true-- he is seriously sweet, especially with the ladies. The top of his 'Ladies List' is --- lucky for me! --- his Mama. There are others right up there at the top (MorMor, his teacher Miss Amanda, his good friend from school Alyssa, etc.), but I am, without a doubt, his Numero Uno (and I plan to do my darnedest to keep it that way for a long, long time). Not a day goes by that this boy doesn't do or say something outrageously sweet and lovey to me. He kisses me, spontaneously, at random times throughout the day. He loves to cuddle anytime he has the chance. Rarely does a dinner come and go without him getting up from his seat when he's done eating, walking over to me at the table, hugging me, and then saying, "Thank you for dinner!" And he regularly says things that just absolutely melt my heart (and he always seems to be genuinely sincere in saying them). It is a gift he has, I tell ya! At one point this past weekend we were eating dinner out at Chipotle. We were talking about food, and different types of food -- Chipotle is "Mexican food," and we also love "Thai food" and "Haitian food" and "Indian food" and "Swedish food" and "Italian food" etc. I said, "I love Mexican food -- I think Mexican food is my favorite." And then I said, "Kyle, what is your favorite kind of food?" And he said, barely skipping a beat, "Mommy food."

About Our Blog
The Johnson-McCormick Family Blog is a blog spot for sharing the scoop on our little family's big life! We are Heather, Braydon, Kyle, Owen, and Meera Johnson-McCormick. Kyle and Owen are twins- born May 8, 2004 in Cite Soleil, Port au Prince, Haiti- adopted January 31, 2005. We became a "Party of 5" when Meera Grace was born to us on May 28, 2008. We have a crazy, fun-filled life with 3 bambinos and 2 big careers all under 1 roof - The point of this blog is three-fold: 1) to keep friends and family posted on K, O, and M's goings on's and our life, 2) to create an historical document/journal/scrapbook of this wild ride, 3) to be out there in the blogosphere -- loud and proud -- doing what we can to support other adoptive/inter-racial families and dual-career families in their journeys. Thanks for reading and following along! As Kyle and Owen say, "It's a bumpy bumpy ride!"(in a good way!).
