Jesus Loves Me

Leesha: "Hey, why do you get another dessert?"
Me: "'Cause I'm an adult."
Leesha: "Can I have another one since I caught you?"
Me: (guiltily) "Yeah."

In the van:
Maggie: "A Gamma hug." (repeatedly)
Mom: "Do you want to give Grandma a hug?"
Maggie: (sweetly) "Yeah."
later .... Jack: "How are we going to get Grandma and give her a hug?"

One night, when we went in to check on the babies, Maggie was sleeping in just a diaper since she'd taken off her pajamas. I'm glad she'd kept the diaper on.

Leesha and the babies survived an evening alone while I went to Bible Study. Leesha had them watch a movie, gave them baths and then read stories. This is very cool.

The babies and I were outside. I sneezed several times. At one point, I was "gearing up" to sneeze and Jack noticed. So, he said; "Go ahead."

We'd put the babies down to bed and were waiting for the timer to go off indicating that it's time to put the books away and actually go to sleep. I peeked through the door and saw Jack laying there, so signed "I love you". He worked his little hand out from under his blanket and signed it back. Awww....

Maggie's newest pharase: "I weew" (I will.)

Mom: "Do you have baby Amy?" (referring to a doll of ours)
Maggie: "No. Jee-Sus." ...... "ah me so" (singing)

Jack: "I'm going to take the constructions with me, so I know how to do it." (referring to his new toy from the $Tree)

"Okay." not "Otay"
"Copycoin" (popcorn)

Apparently gummy candies are going to be a good means of rewarding her for potty training. I got her to sit on the potty for a gummy butterfly. Then she kept asking for "ana-er gummy beew" (another gummy bear).

Jack loves to listen to books on CD from the library. Maggie sometimes repeats what the narrator reads.

Jack whispered something in Jeffry's ear. Maggie saw what was happening and before Jack was done, started whispering gibberish in Jeffry's other ear.
I often find it hilarious when one child starts something, the other one will adopt the; "Oh, so that's what we're doing now" attitude and copy them.

Happy Jack

Maggie said - "What happened to Jack?"

What it actually sounds like - "Happy Jack?"

Trying to keep up

Jack to Dad; "Why does a tri-ops have 3 eyes?"

Maggie's newer words: "Nope." (the "p" sound comes out more like a little breath.)
"Gamma" or "Damma" (Grandma),
"'too' bus" (school bus)
"yeah" instead of "tee" (okay?) all the time
"Ah ya you" (I love you)

Leesha: "Jack, what does q-u-i-e-t spell?"
Jack: "Cute!"

Mark this date

Jack started riding his new bike tonight - the one without the training wheels.

"Too tute"

Mom: "You guys want to go on a walk?"
Jack: "Yeah!"
Maggie: "Yeah! Me too. (to puppy) Puppy, waa?"

I've heard; "Me too." "My tun." (turn) and "Share." "My MOM." (to Jack, repeatedly) "A noun." (Lay down.) "No! Do way!" (No! Go away!)
5 syllables; "Opa doa Mommy." (Open door mommy.)

Sweetest words: "Mom! I ya you." (Mom! I love you.)

From Jack:
(upon propping the side door open)" I want a bird to come in so I can have a pet."
(regarding their make-believe car of two dining chairs) "I'm gonna sit here 'cause I'm the man."
(after putting two hats on mom) "Gee Mom, you look like an ice cream."

Thought-provoking Sign

I saw a sign the other day:
Covert Construction

So, are they Ninja builders?
