Joel ate two stuffed shells at dinner last night. Elias also ate two whole stuffed shells! This little guys gonna eat us out of house and home :)
Cosette: Mommy, who are my parents? Are Mima Rhoda and Pappy Dale my parents?
Mommy: No, Cosette, they are your grandparents. Me and Daddy are your parents.
Cosette: Oh, then who are my grandsons? Lisa and Tori?
Mommy: (chuckling to herself) No, Cosette, you don't have any grandsons. Lisa and Tori are your Aunt and cousin.
Cosette: (Looking a little confused) Oh. (Why in the world did she think she had grandsons??!)
The sermon had just started this morning. I hear a little voice saying, rather frantically "Mommy, have to use the potty!" So, we went back and used the potty, washed our hands, got a treat, etc, and sat back down. I kid you not, 30 seconds later, "Mommy, I have to use the potty...." And she wasn't just kidding, either! As we got back to our seats again, she announces pretty loudly, for the whole quiet church to hear: "Daddy, I had to use the potty again!"
Eli knows how to say please by rubbing his belly(baby sign language). Now, if he wants a banana, he goes over to the counter, points, says 'Ugh, ugh!', and rubs his belly. But, if he's really hungry, he beats on his belly instead, like tarzan :)
Cosette has been reading a book lately about a little pig who is very active and wears her poor Mama out. At the end of the book, the Mama gives the little pig a hug and says "Olivia, I love you very much anyway!" So, Cosette has taken to giving me hugs and saying "Mama, I love you anyway! " **smile** (Hey, it's the thought that counts, right??)
