Week 8

Baby Aaron is the next and youngest out of my generation on the Trapp side. Aaron just turned three years old on February 7th. Aaron lives in Mt. Vernon, IL with his siblings Shawn and Jessica. Like his sister Jessica, Aaron is a wild child. He is especially full of energy for a child his age. Aaron also loves to play baseball with his brother Shawn. He hits very well for a three year old which always makes his brother and dad excited. Aaron is the first cousin I had that I can actually remember the day they were born and meeting them as a baby. I met him when I was fourteen and in eighth grade. Aaron has bright blonde hair like his sister but he definitely has his brother's facial features.

Week 7

Adelyn is another one of my favorites. She's six years old and about to turn seven in March. Adelyn is my little cheerleader. She's also a level two gymnast. Adelyn is a very sassy little girl to say the least. Her brother Nathan calls her bossy britches. Adelyn is a really big momma's girl. She loves to come hang out with the family but she can't ever be away from her mom for too long. She has a bunny that she names Pringles. Tonight Adelyn is coming to a cheer clinic with the high school cheerleaders and I'm really excited.

Week 6

Jessica is the next of my cousins. I would never want to pick favorites, but if I had to Jessica would definitely be one of them. Jessica is nine years old and is in third grade. She lives in Mt. Vernon, Illinois. Jessica and I have always had a special bond. She does not have any sisters so she kind of looks to me as one. Jessica has always been a wild child. She has so much energy and is always running around and doing something crazy. It's really ironic because Jessica's mom Lauri has the complete opposite personality as Jessica. She's very laid back and conservative; Jessica is the exact opposite. The past couple years Jessica has been learning how to read and write so we are pen pals. She writes me letters and draws little pictures with them and I always write her back.It's really sweet.

Week 5

Nathan is the next oldest in the family. Nathan is ten years old and a fourth grader at Crestwood here in Paris. Nathan is a very dorky little boy, for lack of a better word. He's also very kind though. He loves sports and especially baseball. His favorite team is the Cardinals. He always watches the games with our Grandpa when the family gets together. Nathan is kind of small for his age but he wants to start playing junior league football next year. I'm not quite sure how that will go, but I hope it goes well for his sake. Nathan is one of the two boys within all of us Trapp cousins, so he very much looks up to our cousin Shawn. They are two peas in a pod.
