They always manage to keep it light-hearted around here and me laughing out loud from their cuteness. Grace is now verbal enough to join the ranks and also things she is older than her brothers, two going on ten. She is a little mother hen, picking up after everyone and keeping all of her brothers in line.
Clapping her hands
Grace: Come here Caden!
And attempts to pick up all 21 pounds of him with her 26 pound frame.
Hearing Caden fussing in his crib.
G: I will get him Mom.
Seeing some of Aaron’s clothes lying on the floor in a pile, Grace picks it up and looks at it.
G: Did daddy pee?
Lying on the floor next to Caden and touching his hand.
G: Tag, your it!
Digging through my makeup drawer and putting on some lipstick and then proceeding to hand me a red one.
G: Here mom, try this one.
G: Oh Kolbe, he is a boss baby.
Playing Church and Ethan was really getting into his homily.
E: Jesus wants you to say yes. He doesn’t want you to say no. He wants you to say yes. If you say no, don’t worry Jesus will come with his Shepherd’s staff and wring your neck and bring you right back with the other sheep.
E: Mom, I have a surprise for you!!
Me: Oh, what is it?
E: I am praying for twin sisters!
Kolbe: Mom, we need to have more babies. Everyone at school is having babies and we need to catch up to them so we can drive one of those really big vans.
Aaron: Uh-oh mom just gave you the look.
K: Yeah, that’s her stern look.
K: We have a new virtue this week.
Me: Oh really, what is it?
Me: What does it mean?
K: I have no idea, but it is a reeeally big word!
Gazing at himself in the mirror.
K: I look pretty fancy in this suit. It looks like I should be getting married or something!
