Sometimes my kids crack me up! They say and do the funniest things...such as...
Today I was doing history with Jenessa. She had already peeked ahead at part of today's lesson last week. When we got to the part that she had already seen, she told me she had looked at it. I asked her if she wanted to look at it again. She said 'Yes, I liked it but I'm good at forgetting things." That made me laugh..."I'm good at forgetting"
I think Sienna finally understands that there is a baby in my tummy. We've had several conversations about how she needs to be careful when she comes to lie down by me on the couch so she doesn't hurt my belly (and when she does hurt me she asks where the baby is and gives him a kiss!) A few days ago, she asked me if the baby had a toy. I guess she wonders what the little guy does in there all day with nothing to play with! (by the way we are still clueless on names!)
Logan is doing well with his speech development. Unfortunately, he sometimes get stuck on a word. We went to a sporting goods store to get Kessiah a new softball mitt (she claims her old one is too small). I think Logan was overwhelmed with the amount of balls in the store and let us know it! He could not stop saying ball and pointing to all the balls and trying to touch all the balls! It was ball heaven and he loved it!
Another one of Logan's favorite words is doggie. Unfortunately, every animal is a dog. So if I'm reading a book with him he points to every animal and says doggie whether it is a dinosaur or Winnie the Pooh! Any animal toy we have is also a doggie, regardless of what the animal really is. So, some of our conversations are as follows. He shows me a pig and says "doggie" I say "pig" He says "doggie" I say "pig" "oink oink" He says "doggie" I say "pig" "oink oink" You get the idea! We recently watched a dog movie for family movie night (a Friday night tradition at our house)....Beverly Hills Chihuahua. I seriously had to put the boy to bed because we couldn't hear the movie over his constant babble of "doggie, doggie, doggie, doggie, doggie, doggie, doggie, doggie, doggie, doggie."
So, yes even as I sit here in a constant state of tiredness and wishing my house were cleaner I still find joy in my kids because they do make me laugh and smile (and sometimes cry!...but that's another Sienna story)
