I think I forgot to share this here!  Jacob got a bearded dragon for his birthday in January and he named him Drake.  He's quite a fun guy to be honest.  I never thought I'd like a reptile, but he has a fun personality.  :)

I've attached a picture...

*shaking my head* I never thought you'd get attached to a reptile! I'm glad he's fitting in so well with your family though :)

You and me both!  Want a real laugh? When the boys go to bed at night, I bring him out and he falls asleep on my arm.  He'll stay there for an hour or so until I put him back!  It is our bonding time. LOL!

I have never heard of those so I had to look them up.  Very interesting looking reptile!  Wow!

He is so cute, Kristy!  I'm glad it's been such a love connection for you!

How neat! Out of curiosity, what kind of personality does he have and/or how does he show it?

Well, personality might be a bit of a stretch... lol...

But he's very super friendly.  He'll even wave his arms when he wants out of his cage.  He'll sit on you and tilt his head when you talk to him (like a dog does- it is cute!).  He also likes to dig in and "snuggle" with you (and yes, I am aware that it sounds super creepy to do that with a lizard!).  He's also so very good with the kids.  He lets them do pretty much anything with him... and comes back for more.  :)

Cute. I'm sure the boys love it. I know my 2nd oldest would be all over a lizard if I brought one into the house. You're a brave woman lol.
