Gwinks, chepchup and pinch fries ...

...are just some of Kalleigh's words these days. She also like to dress up in Johnathan's "Eena Jones" costume as well as dressing up in her own "booful dwesses" with boots. She daily tells me things like, "I yike a arm, Mommy," or "I yike a hair, Mommy." Her prayers begin, "Ghee God, Mommy, Daddy, Joffin, Kowleigh, Baby Jonas," in the middle is, "Help a to obey; sorry to 'sobey," and end with, "In Jesus' name a pway, A-MEN!" At McDonald's the other day, I asked, "Do you want chicken or a hamburger?" "Yeah!" "No, there is chicken and there is a hamburger. What's your favorite?" "My hat!" At supper, Johnathan said, "I'm full!" Kalleigh held up two fingers and said, "I'm two!" And just now I heard her say, "Sorry I cake a toy away, Jonas!"

However, the quote of the day goes to Johnathan. The scene is set in the living room. Johnathan has just given Kalleigh a Wii remote beause she told him she wants to play "Shar Vars" with him. He then says, "Kalleigh, this time when I say, 'Hit the bad guys,' don't just hit the TV with the remote!"

Life is good. :)

She’s a handful, but she plays with her brothers, she says her prayers from her sweet little heart, and she is very advanced in her language skills with her full sentences and questions. Yes, there is a lot to be thankful for! Life is good!

I LOVE it! I can't wait to hear what words Logan will come with as he starts to talk. I can vividly remember some of Lukas' words though; he called the light a 'nigh' (sounded like eye with an n in front of it) and he called pizza 'puppy' until he was about 3! I love the picture of Kalleigh too - it pretty much sums her up!

Aww, she is too cute! I am so glad we got to spend a little time together last month. I enjoyed "talking" and walking with her outside.

Oh dear, she sounds just like you. I remember thinking you were quite a handful when we were little!
