Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy -- meditate on these things.

5/24 - I don't remember the context, but the quote from Jonathan is, "Well, the definition of 'Mom' is basically 'tired person'."
5/25 - Noah showed me his newfound skill of pumping a swing from standstill to as high as he wants. To me, it is one of those things that is an "all of a sudden". Just the week before, I was thinking it was about time he could do it but it just didn't seem like it was happening. Then it just clicked and he can do it.
5/25 - Faith has said this for a while but I thought I'd record it. "Company" has the "an" and "y" switched, plus the sub /c/ for /t/, so it sounds like "tumpyan." Very hard to understand if you don't get the context, but still kind of cute.
5/26 - Noah called the boat fender the "defender".
5/30 - I got up early to go to the bathroom. When I was washing my hands, I heard a clear, distinct, "Mommy!" coming from the bedroom. I thought it was strange for Faith to be up so early, but when I got in, I saw Faith sound asleep. It was Joy who was sitting up and waiting patiently for me to answer her call! Since then, she calls me by name a lot and it is so sweet.
Certain relatives might be interested in knowing that Jonathan's list of books he wanted to keep out until the last minute are D'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths, his children's Dictionary, one Calvin and Hobbes book, and one Asterix book.
