Superlatives at Age 2…

Remember those Senior Class Superlatives?  Most Likely to Succeed, Best Dressed, Worst Driver, Most Likely to be Incarcerated…okay so that wasn’t on our list, but it easily could have been added!  The boys at age 2 are showing more individual personality than ever, so we thought it would be fun to make our own superlatives (we almost have our own class, after all). This post might be a fun one to look back on and see how much/little changes over time.

I sent the categories to Brad and he filled out who he thought best fit, while I filled out mine separately.

Category   Brad’s Response Jen’s Response
       
Most Outgoing   Isaac Henry
Best Sleeper   Clark Clark
Most Ticklish   Clark Clark
Highest Pain Tolerance   Henry Henry
Biggest Appetite   Clark Clark
Pickiest Eater   Henry Henry
Daddy’s Boy   Isaac Isaac
Mama’s Boy   Henry Henry
Loudest Screamer   Isaac Isaac
Most Quiet   Brooks Brooks
Best Singer   Clark Isaac
Cutest Runner   Brooks Brooks
Most Mischievous   Henry Brooks
Cleanest Eater   NONE Isaac
Messiest Eater   ALL Brooks
Most Athletic   Brooks Brooks
Acts Most Like Mama   Henry Henry
Acts Most Like Daddy   Isaac Isaac
Biggest Water Bug   Henry/Clark Henry
Best Dancer   Brooks Brooks
Stinkiest Stinkies   Isaac Isaac
Worst Breath   Henry Brooks
Bigg
est Helper
  Brooks Brooks
Most Stubborn   Isaac/Clark ALL
Most Independent   Isaac Isaac
Best Eyes   Isaac Henry
Best Hair   Henry Henry
Best Smile   Clark ALL
Cutest Caboose   Brooks Brooks
Best Laugh   Clark Isaac
Most Verbal   Brooks Clark
Best Brother   Brooks Brooks

Were you voted for in your senior class superlatives?  I’d love to hear about it. Also, feel free to steal this idea for your own family superlatives blog post and let leave me a link in the comment section so I can check it out! I love seeing all the individual, unique, qualities within the family genes (especially in multiples)!  God truly has made us each fearfully and wonderfully!  (Psalm 139:14)

    I was voted “Worst Driver” and “Most Likely to Call the Operator for the Number to 911.” Do you see a theme? HA!

    I wasn’t voted anything- but our in Senior newspaper when these were published the caption to one of the pictures said ” Stephanie Royce was voted the prettiest of senoior class. Seated next to her is Carrie Bugg”
    I was the one seated by the prettiest! That makes you feel great!

    Hi there,
    I’m just a nosy reader from Brownsburg, who caught wind of your family through Indystar. 🙂
    My 4 yr. old son loves hearing about your boys, and actually asked the other day, “When will we get to meet these boys?”. I laughed, and said maybe one day we’ll see them at the park. 🙂
    Anyways, would you mind telling me which boys are which in the picture with this post? I’d love to know which one has the “cutest smile”, etc. 🙂
    God bless you!

    I’m a newbie to your blog and just fell in love with your boys! The superlative idea is adorable! I’ll definitely have to steal it once my trio are a bit older. I was never voted for senior superlatives but I was senior class editor of the yearbook, making me in charge of the whole thng and I took half of the photographs for it. Good times!

    I was voted most likely to be arrested by the age of 21- Okay I admit I was a bit wild in High School.

    I’d recently wondered if parents of multiples do this kind of thing!

    So cute!

    However, I’m still convinced that Henry’s smile could stop traffic. Love it!

    Yours truly,
    Most Courteous, Class of ’99

    Jen, totally great idea, and I am totally going to borrow it.

    It would be fun for you to keep the ones that fit each year, and see who, if anyone, keeps the same place.

    I am stealing this idea for my GBG triplets! Keepum coming!

    Just surfing around and ran into this site! Just thought I would pass
    it on. I think they are so cute. I know that you have boys but I am sure you know some lil’girls too! I can just imagine my girls in
    matching outfits right now!!!

    Freakin’ hilarious! I like how the ones you each picked as “Most Outgoing” were also the unanimous picks for mama’s boy (Henry) and daddy’s boy (Isaac). Were you two being a little partial?!?!

    I’ll definitely need to “leverage” this idea for our four. Great idea!

    Love ya!

    Aww. Glad everyone is feeling better. I was voted most likely to be on Broadway, and most likely to be arrested…neither of which has come true! 🙂 I think the arrested one was rigged, I make minor mischief, but not enough to warrant police involvement.

    I LOVE how you guys are right on the $ with almost every category. I attribute the differences to when you are around them for longer periods of time you notice more things. Re: Superlatives – I think I was the wall flower, watching everything from the sidelines. When we had our 20 year Reunion they all could not get over that I had quadruplets! Like they even remembered me!? hahah!

    Love, Cathy & the quads

    What a fun list. You are so creative. I don’t think was ever voted anything that I can remember but one thing is for sure- nobody ever expected me to have 5 kids. Loved the picture of all your men at the end!

    Finally taking a look at your site after reading about you on in the paper. I was following the web blog awards in another category. Congrats. Also, we delivered at St. Vincent on 2.12.07, just one for us though–if there was a new mother lounge, we might have seen each other. Good luck with the web survey I hope it brings you some good advertising $$.
