Wise Words from Sebastian

I was talking on the phone with Kami the other day and I heard, in the background, Sebastian say, "I am going to be an artist when I grow up."

I told Kami to tell Sebastian that Eli also wanted to be an artist when he grew up.

Then Sebastian demanded the phone so he could tell me something very important.  This is what he said: "If he wants to be an artist then he needs to be good at drawing."

Wise words, Sebastian, wise words.

(I think Sebastian is four.)

Clover on January 6, 2015 (month and a half)

My friend, Emily, made this welcome home sign with the kids when Timothy came to pick me up from the hospital.  I loved it and kept it on the wall for about three weeks.  Thanks again, Emily!

Clover has gorgeous eyes.  I love them even more now that she makes eye contact with me.






I'm getting more and more frustrated that I can't keep this baby's skin healthy.  I thought I was the expert at taking care of sensitive skin--especially after dainty Lady Harriet!  Clover, sadly, doesn't respond to any of my tricks.  I hate seeing rashy skin.  She doesn't act uncomfortable, but she looks uncomfortable.  So sad.

Some Things I Forgot to Blog

This past summer, the kids got into a plant called milkweed.  The older kids squished it around their hands but Eli put the milkweed juice in his mouth and then spit it out.  The result was a serious burn.

The moral of the story: don't do weed, man.






Small sidenote--can you believe how much younger Eli looked this summer than he does now????  How does that happen so quickly?????????????????

Smart Eli

I was watching clips of Persuasion today while folding laundry (the 1995 version--the only correct and true and holy version) and Eli said, "Why in movies do they alway show that the men's hands are so much bigger than the girl's hands?"
Because romantic hand-holding shots make us swoon, little man. Perceptive of you to notice.
