The Niños

Jack is being so stinking cute lately! When we say it's time to say a prayer to bless our food or for family prayer or whatever he folds his arms & does a good job at it too! It's aDOREable! He started clapping his hands a week & a half ago too! He's waving when we say bye or hi. He's tried to mimic some of the things we've said (not that his mimicing sounds a THING like what's been said - I can just tell my the inflections in his voice). He's much more laid back & chill than Callie. He enjoys playing with a toy, whereas Callie can't hardly go from one thing to the next fast enough. We got this little Giraffe when Callie was a baby that you drop blocks into & it makes a sound. Callie still couldn't (or wouldn't) sit down & put the blocks in that thing when she was a year. But Jack's been able to do it for a while now.

This picture is a few days old, but Callie came to the gate (to the office) this morning with lipstick all over 1 cheek & said, "Mom, I pretty. Look Mom, I so pretty. I shopping." She was carrying a Target bag on her arm. When I went into the kitchen to investigate, I discovered a 20- a 1-dollar bill that she'd put in the trash, more cash on the floor, lipstick & lipgloss scattered, & lipgloss smeared onto one of my new red dishtowels that I waited seriously months to buy - from Target - which it's not like I can just go to Target this afternoon & replace! At least the dish towel isn't as expensive or IMPOSSIBLE to replace as the undershirt she ruined a few weeks ago! Jeremiah & I were in the kids' room playing with them & both fell asleep on their floor. I woke up after a few minutes to what I thought was Jack crawling on me. But no - it was Callie wiping her lip-glossy greasy little fingers all over my shirt & undershirt. It would have been a hilarious story had it not ruined my favorite brown undershirt/cami that I probably wear 2+ times a week! It was long, it was a great cotton blend, it was an awesome color, & it stayed down (instead of constantly riding up like its replacement), and it can't be replaced! I'm still not over it!

3 talk to me:

It sounds like it is never dull at your house. We loved the update and I did chuckle. I know it isn't funny now, but someday it will be. Remember to laugh now.
We loved the update and hope to have more.
