The Best Husband Ever

I seriously have the best husband ever. You may not be aware of this. You might (mistakenly) think that your husband is a contender for this award. You would be wrong. Let me list some of his activities today - please keep in mind that ZERO of these things were done as a result of my nagging or even requesting. It was all motivated by his desire to serve me and our family.

- vacuumed and mopped all the wood floors
- picked up toys
- bathed all three kids
- watched the kids at a birthday party while I talked with other moms
- mopped the kitchen tile
- picked up more toys
- washed all the day's dishes
- ordered pizza (so I didn't have to make dinner)
- made juice for the boys
- scrubbed the grout in the kitchen floor
- picked up some more toys
- ironed a dozen or so shirts

Love him.

The Talkingest Boy

Elijah talks about twelve times as much as Jack did at this age. Actually i just made that number up. But it's definitely a lot more. And I'm still not used to it.

Today I handed him a banana. He said:
"Here go, Lijah. Wow. Dat's cool."

What book do you want to read?:
"Thomas' Christmas Delivery... peep peep"

Every time we turn on the fireplace:
"Look at dat fire."

If I mention the PBS show:
"Conductor? All aboard.. Dinosaur Train - Woo Woo"

Anytime I leave the room:
"Mommy not here... be right back!" (this is accompanied by crying)

Greeting me about 100 times a day:
"Hi sweet haht (heart)" or "Hi sweet boy"

The most frequent refrain:
"Watch Thomas?"

He's definitely entertaining us these days. What a sweetie!
