Say What?!?!

Only from the mouths of babes...

-In church last week at my niece's baby dedication...
Me: "Gavin, do you want to say a prayer.  You know, send a message to God?"
Gavin: "I like Dirty Deeds!"

-When trying on some maternity skinny jeans (isn't that an oxymoron?) handed down from a neighbor...
Garrett: "Nice try, Mama!" 

-With regards to potty training...
Me: "Gavin, now that you're a big boy we're going to practice using the potty!"
Gavin: "I am a big boy when I'm 10."  (potty training to be resumed at a later date...)

-At dinner last week...
Me: "How much do you love Daddy?"
Garrett: "This much!" with arms wide open.
Me: "How much do you love Mommy?"
Garrett: "This much." with eyes squinting and fingers about a centimeter apart.

-A daily occurrence when trying to get Gavin to follow any simple command...
Me: "Gavin, please xxx (pick up your shoes, let me change your diaper, come inside, etc, etc.)..."
Gavin: no response, continues said activity
Me: "Gavin, please xxx (pick up your shoes, let me change your diaper, come inside, etc, etc.)..."
Gavin: no response, continues said activity
Me: "Gavin, please xxx (pick up your shoes, let me change your diaper, come inside, etc, etc.)..."
Gavin: no response, continues said activity
Me: "Gavin, I've asked you three times nicely to xxx.  If I have to say it again I'm going to feel very frustrated!"
Gavin: "Oh!  You talkin' to meeeeee?"

Sugar and Spice

While the last thing we need around here is more STUFF, there are a few items that I love to see lying around lately .  It means she'll be here before we know it.  And she already has quite a clothes situation on her hands thanks to my sweet friend Niki and generous sister in law Lindsay...girl is going to be well dressed:)  Her room is still the stashing ground for all things that I don't know where to put yet, but eventually we'll get in there and clean it out.  In the meantime, I like to catch sight of.....

...my latest secondhand find:)

...the piece of artwork that will hang in Baby Girl's room.

...and yes, even the infant carrier makes me smile:)

I'm 24.5 weeks.  At 26 weeks with the boys I went into the hospital on bed rest.  This go round I'm looking for warm weather maternity clothes, hitting the gym regularly, and feeling lots of movement...still on track for typical, uneventful (relatively speaking of course:)), and full term...just like we want!
