Recent conversations

Addie was practicing her letters and Dave was asking her what words and names started with "D". Then she said "My name has a D."
Dave: "Yeah, your name has 2 Ds in it."
Addie (in a very offended voice): "My name doesn't have tooties in it!"

When Addie was potty training we really struggled with getting her to poop in the potty. Some kids will hold it forever and make themselves sick. Not Addie. She would just go in her panties. So whenever I would smell anything I would ask "Do you need to go poo poo or just gas." She would usually answer "just gas". So the other day Dave was explaining how the car works and he said it runs on gas and she literally laughed about it for 5 minutes.

Addie was coming down the stairs.
Addie: "Look, mom, I'm missing steps."
Mom: "Oh, yeah, you're skipping steps. That's pretty tricky."
Addie: "Pretty familiar, too."

Ben Weeks 1-3

Thank you so much, mom, for coming to help me! We all loved having you here and miss you!

Good Big Sister
She just gets a little distracted by the camera...
My skinny little boy

He still sleeps almost all of the time.

We love this new addition to our family! (Sorry about the random order and poor picture quality. Blogger won't let me move pictures and my camera's flash makes Ben close his eyes so if he's awake, I have to turn off the flash.)
