Seriously. The last month has brought so many fun changes in my little people. As they have learned to express themselves they have absolutely stolen my heart more and more each day. (Is this POSSIBLE??)
1. This morning, K found a hairclip of mine in the bathroom and brought it to me. "Wear it, Mommy." I squatted down next to her & quickly put it in my hair. She said, "Stand up, Mommy." Istood up and then teasingly said, "Now what?" She then looked up at me and said, "Mommy, You BEE-U-ti-fUL." She said it very slowly & seriously. She signed the word beautiful as she said it for extra dramatic effect. It ranks in the top couple of compliments I have ever received. A friend of mine at Bible Study told me this morning to write this down and savor it so that when she is 15 and thinks I'm ridiculous I can remember there was a time when she thought her disheveled, pajama-ed, pre-coffee Mommy was the best.
2. At lunch today I said, "Who loves you, R?" (This is a game they love to play where they each get asked this over and over with "Who else loves you?") Usually we go through all the family members and close friends. This little game fills them up! They giggle as they mention each additional person...the list now includes teachers, classmates, the housekeeper, etc. Anyway, R's first 2 answers were Mommy & Daddy. Generally siblings come next, but when I asked "Who else loves R?" he said, "Je-sus!"
3. Yesterday afternoon, we were playing red light green light. P suddenly shouted "Purple light!" I said, "Red means stop. Green means go. What does Purple mean?" He grinned and said, "Purple, be silly! (sounds like siw-wee)" and stuck out his tongue.
Can I please freeze them????
