And, here are a few recent "funnies" that prove that my baby is growing up...he's a hoot!!!...
*One evening, I had just gotten out of the bath and was wearing this cute little cotton nighty I have. (nothing risque...don't worry!) Quinn has seen me in it a hundred times, but this time he said, "You got hearts on you dress, Momma! You beautiful, Momma. You look good. You feel better? You got out of bathtub? I lub you, Momma!" Oh, melt my heart...that he thinks these things when I'm at my worst! :)
*While playing with his stuffed animals, he said to them, "Where your shoes? Where your crocs?" We've created a monster!
*Quinn has started singing along to ALL of his favorite songs...and La-la-la's the tunes of those songs while he's playing! It's hilariously cute!
*Quinn often looks at me out of the blue and asks, "You happy, momma?" How could I not be, little boy!
*Recently, he loves to "read"...he'll see signs and say, "That says "chick-a-fil-a....That says Toys R Us!" ...and so on. One day, I asked him to read his little heart jibbit on his croc that says "MOM." ...Not having a clue what he would say, he said, "That says 'a joyful heart is good medice!" ...from the verse that he learned that says A joyful heart is good medicine but a broken spirit dries up the bones. Proverbs 17:22. I love how his little mind/heart retained that. Makes me want to be better at teaching him more scripture!
*Q has a little ride on train...and, when he covered it up with a blanket...and it kind of got stuck...he said, "It's all part of the plan!" ...Just like they say on Oso! (If you watch Oso, you know how much he says this!)
*Quinn is all about his right and left. So, in the car, we've been practicing. Now he'll say..."Which way's left, Momma? That way! (while pointing) Light's green, momma. Go left!" ...And, crazy enough, he gets it correct lots of the time!
*Lately, Q loves to asks us questions in hopes that we'll ask him the same question right back. "Whatcha doin' Momma? ... You hungry?...You firsty? (thirsty)..." A little manipulation that works in his favor!
*Tonight, after our bedtime ritual, I turned off his lamp and started singing the song that I sing to him every night that I made up right after he was born! ...And, for the first time, he sang along! It made me cry! I love him so!
