2/1 - Jonathan, munching on dried cranberries, "I would have a happy life with air, cranberries, a Bible, and chips."

2/2 - Faith followed two-step directions:  go get her shoes (from the other room) and put them in the shoe rack.

2/4 - Jonathan, "Life is so fun, I can't resist it!"

The last several days, Noah has been spontaneously saying words with /k/ and /g/ sounds, and coming up to us to show us that he can do it.

The boys have been praying for another baby sister.  Recently, Noah thought he'd ask for two.  Then he commented, "Then we would have three!"  Noah can add!

I got a video of Noah showing me the bits.  If he didn't know one, he'd say, "hobo" or "hada" or some such made up word.  It's hard to catch what he says if you don't know it, so I'll write what he does say, "American Flag" (amehuhu a), "potato", "carrot" (eh-huh), "orange" (it's really a grapefruit, but you can't blame the mixup), "green grapes" (een ape) and my favorite "strawberry" (ah-bee-beh-hee).  I'd been wanting to record him saying strawberry for a while.

That video is SO cute! He has great technique, too. :)

Just found the other new pictures. I LOVE Jon's birthday cake! And in keeping with the puzzle theme, I laughed at the video of Heather so intensely involved in the puzzle that she totally ignores Faith except to keep her from grabbing the puzzle out of her hands. :) And the milk video -- it sure sounds as if she said "thank you" after you gave her the cup! And of course I noticed at the end where she bends down to pick something up and her cup tips with her....

Jonathan's bit showing technique is great, too! Not to mention his knowledge or his reading or both!

Just the thing to warm a grandmother's heart on a cold morning. Oh, I loved the snow pictures, too. That's what winter is supposed to look like! (We had several years of snows like that when I was young, and that has set the standard for winter as far as I'm concerned. I was at the age when snow is all good -- i.e. I never had to drive.)
