Things my kids say...

I realize that these posts are probably only really interesting to me and Marcus and maybe my MIL who reads this blog, but as their language skills progress, I continue to be amazed and amused by them.

So if you don't want to read the things my two year olds say no worries but I want to remember.

~As I've mentioned before Eli is still in love with his bottle and he asks for one all day long. If he hurts himself, and cries, he has figured out this is a good opportunity to garner some sympathy and request a bottle (this almost always works with his dad). I however will not give him a bottle during the day I'm the mean mom.

Lately I've been telling Eli that bottles are for little babies and he's a big boy. So today Eli says, "bottle?"

And I told him he was a big boy. His response was, "no bottle baby" over and over he kept insisting that he was in fact a baby I should just give him a bottle.

~ Around 5:30pm we were all getting antsy so I decided we would go for a walk with the wagon and see some of the christmas lights. We made a brief pit-stop at the store so I could get a soda (I needed some caffeine it's my only vice :~).

Eli did not want to get out of the wagon, but I finally coaxed him inside. The entire time we were in store Emmy kept reassuring Eli saying, "One minute bubba, one minute bubba"

Because I had told them it would only take one minute. When we got back to the wagon Emmy said, "See bubba all better."

Haha, she can be so sweet.

~I also continue to get a big kick about her re-telling of their visit to santa. Tonight on our walk we saw a santa decoration. Emmy pointed out santa and said, "Santa, I crying, candy, markers, book"

Her way of explaining that she cried when she saw santa, but he gave her some candy, crayons, and a coloring book. She's pretty matter-of-fact about the whole thing. I think the surprises from santa helped make up for the trauma of crying.

~ Finally, Eli's newest thing is to flip whatever we say to him back to us. For example if we say:

"Eli do you need a new diaper?" He'll respond, "No you need diaper."

"Eli you need to clean up." "No you clean up"

"Eli eat your dinner" "You eat dinner"

"Eli be nice" "You be nice"

He says these things with a big smile on his face as though he's making the funniest joke ever, and pointing back at us. Emphasis on the you. He's not being naughty or talking back, he's truly just joking around, (the best I can tell from his mannerisms).
