Me: *Pained shriek*
Cecilia: Why you yewwin' Mom?
Me: Because Elizabeth bit me very hard on my leg.
Cecilia: Did she kill you?
Me: No, Elizabeth couldn't kill me, it just hurt very much.
Cecilia: Oh. 'Member when da soldiers killed Jesus?
Glad she can remind me that my suffering is nothing compared to our Lord. Or something to that effect :P
Me: *Pained shriek* Mary Claire, we do not bite.
Cecilia, very concerned: What part of you did she bite off, Mom?
Me: She didn't bite off any of me...
Cecilia: Oh. Pweez don't die, I wuv you!
John Paul takes a bite of tomato and sprays the seeds all over himself...
JP: laughs hysterically
Andrew: Do you see anyone laughing?
Me: Sigh... Now put the tomato in your mouth whole.
JP, frantically feeling his cheeks: Where is there a hole in my mouth???
|"Take a picture of me hitting hammering with a wench!"|
Cecilia, trying to tell me what underwear to wear in the morning: No, wear your PINK underwear!
Me: No, I'm going to wear this pair.
Cecilia: NOT your beige underwear, I don't wike your beige underwear, wear your PINK underwear!
Me: Cecilia, my pink underwear is dirty!
Cecilia: What maked it dirty?
Me: Well, when we wear our underwear for the day, it's dirty.
Cecilia: Maybe you pooped in it a wittle? Or peed in it?
She caught me.
Cecilia, in the middle of the night during a bathroom break: Sometimes I don't see yewwow things.
JP, kissing me 20 times in a row at Mass: Mom, I love you... a dillion times! How many zeroes are in a dillion? More than 100? More than a googol??? Mom??? How many???
We're making paper crowns in honor of the Four Crowned Martyrs tomorrow and John Paul told me what color he wants his to be.
JP: Oh, I want to make a white crown this time. For purity. And then I'll have my red crown of martyrdom and I'll have TWO crowns!
Yup, just call him St. Maximilian Kolbe.
And a little bit of instagram for you:
|These babies are almost 1!!! And they're both taking steps independently, Elizabeth sometimes up to 5-10 at a time. Mary Claire still only wants to take 1 or 2 before giving up and crawling. But I get such a kick out of this picture - one to ride, one to push! Gotta love the unexpected benefits of having twins.|
I hit up a library used book sale yesterday and got 17 books AND a Lilo & Stitch DVD. So basically the kids are covered for Christmas! I found a really interesting anatomy book about how babies develop, but I'm going to have to hide it for a few years because otherwise I KNOW we'll have an outburst from John Paul at an inopportune time...
"When will I have fallopian tubes?"
"No, I have a uterus! I'm a woman!!!"
"MY OVARIES HAVE BEEN IN MY BODY SINCE I WAS A BABY!!!"
But what I think will be his favorite present was this brand-new reference set:
So I'm not expecting to see him for several months after Christmas, because I think he'll be memorizing all this information.
And with that, I send you to more interesting takes at Jen's - happy Friday!
