New Words

Michelle's vocabulary is growing at an amazing rate right now. We couldn't believe how many new words she was saying when we picked her up from my parents after the cruise. Most of them are helpful, but the one she picked up today wasn't the greatest--"mine!" Lovely.

Other new (and relatively new) words:

Blanket
Pineapple (and she says it very clearly!)
Welcome
Bless you! (which she says over and over and over again when anyone sneezes)
Up!
Diaper
Eat (at least I think she says this)
Trash
Michelle
Sissy
Truck
Ball
Fruit Snack
Duck
Quack

I know there are others that I just can't think of right now. I'm too exhausted to think, and it doesn't help that I just realized that our garage sale is this weekend (and I already have the required permit). Anyone want to join me? It's a sub-wide sale, and we usually do pretty well. This is my first year having to do it completely on my own, and that makes me very nervous because of the kids. I'd love to have some company whether you want to sell with me or not!

Conversation at Naptime

You just never know what's going to come out of Steven's mouth, and most of the time, he's pretty hilarious. Of course, he doesn't always try to be, but just like I was probably at his age, he needs to cover all the bases.

Just a few minutes ago as I was trying to get him to walk from the bathroom to my bed for his nap, we had an interesting conversation. He's been wearing Mark's falling apart slippers today (which means that he is walking like a penguin), and I had just told him that he could not wear them during his nap.

Steven: Can I take my toys (bubble blowers) with me?

Mommy: No, no toys at naptime.

Steven: Can I take my popper?

Mommy: No. You can't take anything with you at naptime.

Steven: Can I take my arms?

Mommy: Yes, you can take your arms.

Steven: Can I take your shoe?

Mommy: No. Get into bed and stop asking! If you don't go to sleep, you're going to have to take your nap in your bed.

Steven's now in my bed, quiet as can be :)
