Kiddisms and Photos

Here are some recent photos of our family. Keagan is getting quite big. He is now toddling by himself. His walk resembles some sort of dance. It's adorable!

We're beginning to see his personality. He's not afraid to challenge his brother and sister, and lets them know when they do something he doesn't like....... like get in the way of his food.

A couple weeks ago, Brandon was sitting in the recliner and feeding Nolyn a few bites and then Keagan a few bites. Keagan decided he shouldn't have to share. He started waving his hands and jabbering at Nolyn, then pushed him back against the wall... away from Daddy.. and the food!

Merikalyn is growing tall and seems to be picking up some of my goofiness. Yesterday I tried an old cord jacket on her that my grandmother made me when I was a little girl. She said, "I don't want to wear this Mom. It looks silly."

I shook my head. "No it doesn't, honey. It looks fine!"
"Mom, people are going to laugh at me."
I rolled my eyes. "No they won't. This use to be my jacket. My grandma made it for me."
She gave me an understanding look. She put her hand on my shoulder and nodded. "And they laughed at you too, huh."

HA! I didn't make her wear the jacket. I don't know where she got this "They are going to laugh at me" thing.. because I don't know of anyone laughing at her for how she looks (except for us.. when she comes down with her hair sticking out every which way and crazy outfit!).

Today, when going through our bible study, I asked Nolyn who wore clothing made of camel hair and ate locusts and honey. He said it was "John the Bath-ist"

I guess it's similar... Baptism is a spiritual bath! :)

"I don't wanna go outside.... I'm just going to sit here and watch."

"But it does look like fun out there..."

My three little monkeys!

My sweet hubby brought me tulips the other day just because he loves me! (It wasn't even an anniversary or holiday!) I know, I have an awesome husband (regardless of whether he brings me flowers or not!)

My husband... and a pitcher full of tulips! :)

[Merikalyn and Nolyn were playing house and this is the conversation I overheard.]

M: So, where is your family from?
N: Heaven.
M: Oh? Did your family die?
N: Yes, my family died on the cross.
M: Your family is Jesus????
N: Yes!

[Here's a conversation that took place around dinner time a couple nights ago.]

M: Mom, where do potatoes come from?
Me: They grow in the ground.
N: Where do carrots come from?
Me: They grow in the ground, too!
M: Where do cinnamon rolls come from?
Me: Well, someone gets together all the incredients and prepares them. Sometimes they are made in big factories with big bowls and mixers.
N: Oh! Where were you made from?
Merika: From Nana and Poppa, silly.
N: Nuh-uh! From Daddy's rib!

[Cue conversation later from Dad who explained that only Eve was made from Adam's rib.]

I can't remember what we were talking about the other day, but Merika sweetly piped in, "When I grow up, I wanna be a Mommy."
