Eden has a pair of undies that she thinks are SO beautiful.  They are white with lace and a little bow in front.  The other day she wanted to wear them.  Where she exclaimed,

"Mom, these panties so beautiful.
They are white and clean!
I think they represent the Spirit of God."


Eden was drawing squiggly lines on a paper...

Eden: "Mom.  I'm writing something."
Mom:  "What are you writing?"
Eden:  "Well, its kind of hard for you to read...cause I'm kind of Chinese."

Leila's Baby

Dad pretended to sit on Leila while she was lying on the bed.

Leila:  "NO DAD! OFF!"
Dad:  "Oh, I can't sit here?"
Leila:  "No.  Baby!"
(Points to belly)
Dad:  "You don't have a baby in there."
Leila:  "Food baby."

Mr. Rogers

One day we found Mr. Rogers episodes on Hulu.  The girls watched one early morning when we weren't quite ready to get up.

The next day Eden wanted to wear her sweater jacket....and after zipping it up said,

"Look!  I'm just like Mr. Rogers!"

Post Check Up

Eden was so excited to go back to all her doctor's appointments after the whole osteomyelitis experience.

Before we went she told me,
"Everyone is going to be so excited to see me back again!"

Whenever she saw someone walking around the hospital that looked like a doctor or nurse she would smile and say,
"Hi!  I'm back!"
"I stayed here cause I had an IV!"

Leila has been doing a lot more talking.  She often says things like "eat food", "me too", "hurt. cry."  She also loves to count and say her colors.

But she often mis-says words.  Tyson and my favorite word is when she does something and is saying, "Oopsie!"  But she'll say,


Bullying the Baby

Eden and Leila already bully the new, unborn baby.

Eden LOVES to read my week by week emails from baby center on how big my baby is.  She loves the videos of how my baby is growing.

Last week on baby center it said that the baby can react to light.  If you shine a light on my belly, the baby will move to the other side of my belly.

Eden finds this a fun game.

She grabs her flashlight and will shine in on my belly.  Then on another part of my belly.  And so on.

Leila will occasionally "squish" the baby by sitting on me or climbing on me and I'll say "Oh careful!  You're squishing the baby!"  She finds that funny....and she'll start squishing on purpose.

Hope this is preparing the baby for REAL life with this kids!

Officially Four

After turning four....Eden had quite a few episodes where she was in denial of having turned four.

"I'm only THREE!  I know it!"
"I know because I still can't reach things on the top shelf!"
"I'm NOT four!"

But officially now after a month of being four, she'll say that she's four and not three.  Apparently something changed her mind and she is now OK being four.
