Bring on the Bragging...


So, there is another mom carnival topic at It's Almost Naptime...

I laughed out loud when I read this...[Missy says,] "Because you know what, we all KNOW that 75% of the time - give or take a few percentage points depending on the child - your precious offspring is driving you up the wall"...as a reason she wants us to brag on our kids a bit.

So, in reverse order...cuz, well I loaded the picture in here backwards...hahaha...

Sweet Boobah Caleb
Oh, what can MomE say...he's a snuggler. He's sweet and sensitive. He is a BOY and gets an incredibly cute impish grin upon his face when he throws things....which is often. He has the most mechanical mind...he can open anything (DVD's, childproofed cabinets...)...so watch out! I love that after spending all day, every day, with him I can understand his toddlerese. He very kindly told his DadE that the library book was broken so he was throwing it out...He was totally shocked and crushed when then DadE yelled at him for throwing it away! HA! I love his morning stand in the booster seat...bleating, "Sauss...age!" His early speech thrills me to my toes...he'll count (doesn't know what for but it's fun to copy his sister)...he says, "don't wanna"...and I can hardly keep a straight face to make him do it anyway! I love to breath him in when he first wakes up in the morning! Still, for a bit longer, he will snuggle as my baby boy!

Curious Georgette Emma
She is so bright and cheerful. I love the desire for independence (yes, even as much as I loathe it at times)...the "me dos" and the wearing the same Nana dress day in and out! I love her tenderness towards Christ right now...A few days ago, while I was fixing breakfast, she said, "Mom, the bread's God's body." I paused trying to figure out what to say about this...not wanting her to think all bread was God's body but not wanting to reprimand in any way. Seeing my puzzled expression she said,"It's a symbol!" Uh huh! Then she explained her wordless bracelet....for all ya'll interested (and too bad if you're not cuz this is my bragging time...Missy said so)...Black is for bad stuffs you do....Red is for washing...White is for washed...Yellow is for gold heaven...Green is for life with Jesus. Oh, it blesses my heart and I so want to tell anyone who will listen...cuz I'm so excited. It is my BIG DESIRE...for them to "know Christ and Him crucified!"

So, I can't wait to hear all the other braggings...Gotta go snuggle a boobah or two!
