I just had to document a few cute things my kids have said/done before I forget!
Friday while driving home from Chuck E Cheese, Noah and his buddies were talking about their names/middle names. I told the kids that Curtis' middle name is Taft which is also my dad's and grandpa's middle names. Then I asked Noah why we gave him "Evan" as his middle name. He shook his head so I told him it was my grandma's maiden name. He said, (matter of factly) "oh, I thought it was from Heaven." (because it rhymes) Oh, sweet boy, it definitely is from heaven!
Lucy has been babbling up a storm lately but not a lot of words, except for "Mom!". The other day we were sitting on the couch and Sam walked up behind us. She looked up at him and said "Uh oh, Dada." and then back to her babbling. She keeps us entertained!
Curtis had his first Pinewood Derby last week. He wanted a Ferrari so he and Sam designed it and Curtis sanded it down good. He put some cool racing stripes and numbers on it and it was ready to go. He was so excited. He actually took 3rd place out of 20+ kids. Before he even received his medal, however, he raced the car down the steps at the church and broke off a wheel. Oh well, fun while it lasted!
I am constantly reminded of how blessed I am to be the mother of these children. These little moments in their lives make all the hard parts so worthwhile!
