Peter, Age 3

You guys, Peter is amazing. He's just so funny. We have long, deep conversations about lots of important things, and I wish I could properly demonstrate the way he talks, because everything he says is hilarious. The way he cocks his head, and has to think for a long time, and squeaks and runs in place when he gets excited... I should probably take a video.








The other day we were talking about praying for the holy souls in purgatory, and he told me, "Yeah, betuz we want dem to det to Heaven. And Heaven is at Mass. It's at da top of Mass. Where da people are and dey tan't det down." We had this conversation several times and then figured out he was talking about the choir loft. Which is NOT Heaven, obviously.

He spends loooong periods of time building elaborate Lego & Duplo creations and carrying them around the house, crying when he drops them and they break to pieces and desperately trying to protect them from the pillaging baby. He really, really loves babies and soft cuddly animals, and needs LOTS of hugs. I spend much of my day with Peter wailing, "I need a HUUUUUD!!!" actually...

Peter's survey answers:

1. What is your favorite color? Ummm... Looks down at the toy he's holding. Blat, red, dreen, owange.

My Sunday Best, Volume 80: Hair Ribbons and Praising Babies


Fun fact: I didn't know how to properly tie a bow (so that it actually lies nicely) until... This week. I think I finally have it, though! So the girls all happily wore hair ribbons today, then complained when they slipped out because ribbon is slippery and so is their hair. You win some, you lose some.
