Tiny Talk


They can be so darned adorable.

Last week, Christian took Alex to the grand opening of the new fire station. For three days after they came home, Christian kept remembering funny tidbits of their outing:

1. (already shared last week):
          Reporter: “So do you want to be a fireman when you grow up?”
          Alex (tilting his head and looking sideways): “No, actually I want to be Batman.”

2. Conversation with a fireman:
            Alex: “Do you have a pole?”
            Fireman: “A pool? No, we don’t have a pool!” (Laughing.) “That would be nice, wouldn’t it?”

3. Upon entering the office/bedroom, Alex gets super-excited: “Daddy, look! LOOK!”

Christian looks and can’t figure out what Alex is pointing at. “What is it, buddy?”

“Daddy, it’s a scissors just like the one we have!”

And then there’s Julianna. Julianna (AKA Minnie the Moocher) can’t talk yet, but yesterday morning, she saw Nicholas’s sippy cup full of breastmilk sitting on the table, and decided she was thirsty. She helped herself. You should have seen the look on her face. It said very clearly: What the @#$%^& &#$%^& was THAT?”

Ah, so cute. These are the moments that help make up for the frustrations and difficulties of being a parent.

  1. isn’t it great when they start remembering places we bring them:) Mine remember some of the smallest details for YEARS after a trip:) Reminds me to make the most of each moment… b/c they do remember some:)

    Funny she tried the breastmilk bottle!!! LOL!!

  2. I have to share a quote from my husband from last night after our first childbirth class…after watching a video on the stages of labor he turns to me and says “wow, those women sure seemed to be in a lot of pain!” In some ways I think he is more nervous than I am now…6 more weeks!
