Papa's Work Gear

The kids totally love Richard's "work stuff". This includes his hat, safety glasses, work keys, pager, and various other items. Sometimes if they beg enough they get to wear it and be "work guys" (or "work lady") for a while.

The Cutest Baby on the Block

I am Clementine. I am cute.

And I smile.

I like to look at my sister.

She walks around and calls my name...

...and I follow her with my eyes.

I like to look at my Mama too.

She makes me smile.

And coo.
I have big cheeks. Sometimes they call them jowls.
I have a double chin, too, but you'll have to keep looking to find a picture of that.

* * * * * * * *

This is Mama's all-time favorite outfit of mine. She is sad that I'm outgrowing it!

Oh how I love you, Sissy!
You always make me laugh!
(Now do you see my double chin?)

I really love my big sister! I can't wait to be big like her.
Mama said Sissy wore this outfit when she was a baby!

I like to chill with Papa.
(Check it out, I'm wearing that outfit again. Mama's a bit obsessive.)
I like to watch my brothers, too.

Mama makes me wear this hat. I do look pretty cute in it...
This bib was from Papa's co-workers. They're nice.
Sometimes I just fall asleep in Sissy's arms.I love my family, but they sure wear me out.

And the Answer Is...

Here's the answers to Moses' mystery words:

"Cecil" is "Cereal" (Nice job, Erin!) and a "Go-bo" is a "Granola Bar"! (Way to go, E&E!)

The "Moody Feeder" is the "Movie Theater" of course! (He's only been there once with Uncle Caleb, but asks to go there quite frequently.) You guys both got that one.

"Mewxin" is "Music". We found this one really hilarious, but sadly he just started pronouncing music correctly a few days ago. Sad. Wow, Eric and Elisa, I'm really impressed you got this one! You obviously have "toddler-speak" experience.

And a "Cat-roon" is a "Racoon". He likes to mix up syllables like that. Pretty cute! I don't think I would have gotten this one if he hadn't been pointing to a picture of a racoon.

The Game is Called "Name That Toddler Word"!

Isn't it adorable how toddlers mispronounce words? Judah isn't really talking, but Moses is a chatterbug and has some words we that are quite unique. We have to hide our smiles when we hear him say some of these words. See if you can guess what he means:

What kind of food does Moses want when he asks for "Cecil" or a "Go-bo"?

When Moses wants to go to the "Moody Feeder", where does he mean?

Moses loves it when we play "mewxin". What is it?

Moses saw a picture of a "Cat-roon". What was it?

These ones are more obvious, but still cute: He likes to play with "buh-locks" (blocks) and when he picked his scab he saw "buh-lud" (blood).

What funny things do your kids say?

This Ain't No Gas, Baby!

I can't stand it when people blame a baby's smiles on gas. I think it's just an old wives tale, anyway. Why would a baby bust into a huge smile if he/she had gas?!?

Anyway, this girl is lookin' at her mama and SMILING! No gas here, just a really happy baby.

My heart just melts when this girl smiles at me!
