"Did you have fun riding your bike?"  "Just for a short period of time."

During our Family Home Evening this week, we made a little manger out of popsicle sticks and talked about doing nice things for each other to put a little piece of "hay" in the manger to make it nice and soft for the baby Jesus. L was so excited about our project, he was practically jumping up and down. In his excitement, he yelled, "Everybody knows the Church is true! And I know it too!" This is significant because he generally acts as though he'd rather be anywhere but Church on Sunday mornings! :)

On a related note, "Mom, I think bad guys don't know the Church is true, and they might even try to destroy it!"

Everything lately is about toots. "Baby J has evil toots..... whatever THAT means!"

"I'm not too tired for Legos!"

"I'm not too sick for ice cream!"

L has basically no interest in learning to read. He is, however, very into math. "Mom, does one plus two plus two make five?" and "Dad, I think that 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 makes 20."

I am glad you are recording L words. You think you will always remember but what happens when j starts talking and says cute things of his own.
