Out of the Mouths of Babes

As Lucky's mom, I obviously think he's brilliant and not at all biased in thinking so. Even though I know he's a bright boy I'm continually astounded by what he says.

While putting Lucky back together again after another potty visit:
"Mommy, Jesus does not wear underwear."
-He doesn't?
"No. Jesus is too big."

Snapping my fingers at Lucky's grunting today, I told him not to go stinky in his pull-up. To which he responded:
"Don't worry mommy that was just gas. Don't worry. Mommy you don't need to do your fingers at me. It was just gas. Not stinky."

While at the Kidzone at the YMCA Lucky decided he did not want to do aftershave art. He told me:
"The lady gived me soap. I did not want to play with soap. I played with the stroller and baby. I was gentle to the baby. I did not want soap."

This child is the consummate backseat driver constantly reminding me not to hit the tree or crash into houses. It's truly a three ring circus as we drive around town.

And what does Rolly do while all this is going on? He just smiles his great, big, gorgeous smile. He now says Mama for which I have been waiting on for months. He's said Dada for a long, long time now and finally I have made it into his vocab. Yay!

Welcome to the Jungle- I mean Zoo

We took the boys to the zoo, in spite of the pending rain yesterday. We had a wonderful time. It ended up being a beautiful day. We got to see so much while we were there, but didn't even end up doing half the zoo.

Lucky's favorite part is the zoo train. I don't know if it's because he loves trains, or can see so much on the train, or if it's because our Signing Time video on the zoo, has a zoo train....whatever the reason we road the train twice all the way around the zoo. Most people only ride it half way and then walk, not us! It was fun though.

Rolly really enjoyed himself. He's really into people watching and could care less about the animals. What a champ-taking his hat on and off and generally amusing us with all his cute antics.

It Was A Happy St. Patrick's Day

A yummy start to the day of green gave Lucky plenty of luck all day long. Rolly eyed the green pancakes curiously I think he knew there was something not quite right about them-mostly that he didn't get any!

I Went to Disney World!

We went to Disney World for the first time last month to celebrate Daddy's birthday. We had such a wonderful time. Rolly was such a good sport checking everything out. We saw Mickey Mouse, the Mickey Mouse Lady, Pooh, Tigger, and Donald the Duck (no-not Donald Duck---Donald THE Duck). Lucky had a blast and is spoiled for life now that he's seen how great it is. In fact, when I told him a few friends were going to Disney he said, "Mommy, can we go to see Mickey Mouse too?" When I said not this time-he instantly burst into tears. So sad!
