oh the things kids say

I love all the weird stuff kids say. Akemi is in this phase where she's making all sorts of connections between things and it's so funny. she'll say couch is called sofa! or papa is called kenji! or noodles look like pasta! with total enthusiasm. it's so cute. She has a few funny phrases she uses all the time too like wrap it up me! when she wants me to wrap her up in her blanket at bedtime or i need foooood. food called lunch! when she's hungry.

The funniest thing lately is she likes to pretend she's talking on the phone and says i worry and i call you. (I don't know where she gets this... does someone in our house worry and call people?! ha)

Henry is right up there with the talking too. Which is funny since he was our late talker... I never worried about his speech, I knew it would come when he was ready. and oh did it come!! He talks nonstop these days. I barely get my coffee in the morning before he's at my side and all let me tell you all about about [insert prehistoric reptile name here].

One day, after Henry was talking about mammals nonstop for 5 hours, Naomi said mom why did god give us henry? Oh Naomi! I love her straightforwardness. She's always been that way. These kids. They're goofy, they're sweet, they're full of surprises. We have so much fun together.

This is a good adventure we're on!
