quotes this week.....

I need to keep writing down the things Addelyn is saying these days. Too funny and sweet!

The other night when we put her down for bed, she was yelling from the other room, "I'm scared! Mommy, keep me safe! Keep me safe!"

She told me one night that she didn't like cows. Or pigs. Or chipmunks. (out of the blue, before bed)

Yesterday she walked in the bathroom and asked me if I needed a coupon (maybe you can guess what she was talking about).

When going to the bathroom, she asks us to leave because she needs her "privacy."

"Oh man."

Driving home from a fun night at the pool and dinner at friend's a few weeks ago- she said, "Thanks so much for going to the pool and to Jess'. It was fun." (without any prompting for a thank you! AMAZING!)

play date

What happens when you get a bunch of moms and kids together? You have a great time but it looks completely different than it used to when you got together before kids. Now each mom is chasing her own kids, helping them go down for naps, getting them to the potty, nursing, cutting up their pizza, and so on. You get to have conversations - just not the same depth or length. I still will take mom/kid playdates over NO play dates anyday:) It is fun as seasons of life change- to do it alongside of others! By the way, don't you love our MANY tries to get a good picture (minus Harrison, who was napping!)

jesus is back

I just heard about this story from Mark tonight....Last night he rocked Addelyn before bed. They were getting ready to pray and she stopped Mark and said, "We can pray to Jesus now-- he shaved."

well that makes it much better!

Today before nap, we were rocking and Addelyn was picking her nose and I am pretty sure I saw her stick something in her mouth. I said, "Addelyn, do not pick your nose and eat it! That is very gross!"
Right away, she responded, "Mommy, it wasn't a booger. I only ate a crusty."

we vote NO to facial hair

Today as Addelyn and I rocked and chatted before her nap, I told her that Jesus loves her a lot. She looked up at me and said, "NOOOO I don't want him to love me! His beard is scary! I don't like his beard."

Ahhhh gotta love my sweet lil girl.

Yesterday's dinner conversation:

(Mark and I were talking- Addelyn was focused on her dinner, ignoring us.)

Me: Hey....if tomorow is nice, lets go to the P-O-O-L. (spelling out the word pool)

Mark: Yeah, I don't think it is going to rain.

Addelyn: We are going to the pool tomorrow?

Mark and I: WHAT? When did you learn to spell?????
