Birthday Boy

When Maggie is "up and at 'em" she's babbling. We've discerned "baby", "puppy", "daddy" (all with very long 'eee's at the end and "what's that" (which sounds like 'saaa).

Short conversation at lunch:
Jack mentions something about "Lord ..." (someone or another that I don't know).
Mom: "From Speed Racer?"
Jack: "Yeah. He's a bad guy. He's in the dessert."
Mom: "What's a desert?"
Jack: "Lots of sand."
Mom: "Do we have a desert?"
Jack: "No."
Mom: "Is a desert hot or cold?"
Jack: "Hot."
Mom: "Does it have a lot of water?"
Jack: "No."
(who teaches him this stuff???)

Jack runs out into the kitchen; "What time is my birthday coming over?"
We're going to Grandma and Grandpa's at noon.
That's great!

On Monday night, Jeffry and I assembled Jack's new bed (from IKEA). Leesha watched TOTORO with him while we worked. He was very excited to see it once we were done and is thoroughly enjoying climbing up and down and also playing up on it where Maggie can't reach (yet).

Birthday Babies

I've really fallen behind in blogging this month.

Maggie's new thing tonight: tipping her head to the side and grinning.

On her birthday, she decided to walk. Then she took a break for a few days before "stepping out" again.

She distinctly says; "Daddy" and "'s at?" (what's that)

Jack mentioned "Summer dacation" the other week. I think that was shortly after he said something about "clobsters".

Conversation in the van:
Mom: "Jack, your birthday is on Tuesday and you'll turn 3."
Jack nods.
"We're going to Grandma and Grandpa's for lunch. What would you like to eat?"
Jack gives me nothing short of a genuine "Whatchoo talkin' 'bout Willis?" look.
Mom (laughing) "What do you want for lunch?"
Jack: "Anyfing."

All three kids survived my teaching summer school for 16 days. They had one day with dad, one with Jeanelle and her kids, one with Emily and her kids, 3 with Keesha and her boys here at our house, and the rest with Grandma and Grandpa. Whew! I realized why I'm a teacher and why I am not a regular classroom teacher. It was hard work yet I think I'll do it again next year if I can.

Jeffry cleaned buses up to last Friday, then was on to training again on Monday. Tuesday, his trainee had an accident, so he got to spend Wednesday at home. I was afraid that he was going to be working full time just as I got done working full time, so Wednesday was nice. I took the opportunity to let the babies get some Daddy time while I took Leesha shopping.

there is no title for this one...

The thunder wakes Jack up from a good hard afternoon nap. He then says to mom... "I'm a jungleboy and I'm afraid of the dark..."

Maggie and Jack

Just a few snippets....

While we were busy frosting the cupcakes for Maggie's party yesterday, Jack referred to them as "puffcakes".

Jack is very into the movie "My Neighbor Totoro". He calls it "Your Neivor Totoro".

After the party yesterday, he accidentially cracked one of his knuckles then stated; "I just cracked myself a little bit."

Maggie has decided to brave standing on her own and even taking some steps! She says something akin to:
Babee (baby)
o!sa! (Oh, what's that? or Oh, who's that?)

Clap Your Hands...

Jack: "If you're happy and you know it Deshirley Show..."

Presumably ... if you're happy and you know it then your face will surely show it...
