Lately her request has been to tell her a story... off the top of your head! Sometimes I simply can not think of an original story, so I started telling her Bible stories or classic stories. So today, while driving, I relayed Jack and the Beanstalk and the Biblical story of Hannah. I think I got the Hannah story correct but I hope she never actually reads Jack and the Beanstalk because I probably butchered that story!
As we came back home and were putting our coats and boots away (yes, we are "there" already *sigh*), I remarked to Seth that as much as I love having wee babies and am a bit saddened by how quickly they grow up, I really enjoyed going out with "The Big Girl" and can see WHY they must grow up and get big. She is so easy. She dresses herself completely. She opens AND SHUTS doors. She buckles herself up all on her own. She walks... not runs. She chats none stop and is wonderfully good company. She tells jokes and laughs at mine. She held my hand... not because she had to (she informed me) but just because she likes to. ☺
Doing her "schoolwork";)
I love Leila being 1 month old. She's so sweet and just wants to be held and loved on. I also am really enjoying Eden being 2 yrs. old. She is soooooo funny. She often comes into my bedroom, first thing in the morning, pats my cheek with her pudgy hand and says "Hi Putie Pie" (translation: Hi Cutie Pie). And I love Maddie being 4 yrs. old. She is so smart and tries to please me.
And now, I must stop relaying to you how fantastic my kids are and do their laundry.... again. ☺
