20/52

This week he: was super helpful in the garden and planted his very own butterfly seeds / insisted on including his dandelion in the school picture and pouted whenever the photographer requested it leave the frame / loved wading in the stream and collecting sticks and rocks / started occasionally talking in a high and squeaky voice that is driving us all nuts / had this conversation with me before bed tonight: him: mama, I like you me: oh thank you buggy him: mama, do you like me? me: of course I like you, I love you silly him: why? me: because you are my favorite silly boy, why do you like me? him: because you're really beautiful (killing me with the sweetness lately, I mean he may be shallow, but I'm so sold!).

This week she: ate lots of dirt and mulch and sticks / started trying more to pull up on things (I'm realizing how little we have to pull up on here, not so much as a regular chair!) / had her first taste of chocolate and corn on the cob / became very vocal, she can clear a room with her squawks / had her 9 month doctor's appointment and measured 27.5" and 17.5lbs

  2. What cuties! Keep on writing down and recording those conversations with your kiddos. They just get better and better.

  3. They are so sweet! Wet and muddy is the best way for kids to be. ;) And what a doll, calling Mommy beautiful! Love that! Sometimes I get called beautiful, sometimes I get told I have a fat belly. ;)
