Bram Praying

Bram says very thoughtful prayers. Tonight, however, he said two things and was done. I told him he didn't bless very much, and he says, "and please bless very much." We tell him to start over and in the midst of his prayer he still remember to, "bless very much." I don't know if he is wondering what very much actually is, but he seemed satisfied with his second prayer. 

My clone :). She is so much fun. I cannot get enough of her!
Alba is David's dog. I am glad, but at the same time, it really makes me miss Camrose because she was totally mine.

Poignant Phrases from Toddler Boys

A phrase from Anders' prayer tonight, "And bless the missionaries to cut the arms off the humans." We do not watch violent movies. We have been reading the story of Ammon for family scripture study and Anders is totally enraptured by it. We explained that Ammon was a missionary, like our missionaries. 

When Bram got out of the tub, I heard him tell his dad, "She (our dog) is going to bite my penis off." And then he ran down the hall in a panic, covering his front with one hand and his bum with the other. So funny! 

Alba is a third dog, a third pig, and a third parrot. She totally runs around snorting like a pig and squawking at me like a parrot. 

Astrid can hold her own against her brothers. The other day there was a really loud grunting noise in the shower. Bram and Astrid were tugging on opposite sides of a toy and Astrid was not letting up at all. Then later, she had Bram crying because she took a toy from him. So much for her being our peacemaker...

Alba sleeps ALL the time and always wants to snuggle near me or David or Astrid.
When David dried Astrid after her bath, he created a masterpiece with her hair, obviously.

Albany Afton Wrinkles Bilodeau

We have a new member of our family! We asked the boys if they wanted toys or a puppy for Christmas and they were both adamant about having a puppy. Alba came to stay last Sunday. She is a great (if challenging) addition to our family.

Giggles and Rasberries

Astrid has hit the stage where she loves to make me laugh. She is currently blowing Rasberries on my arm to make me laugh. Then she pulls off and smiles, then blows another one as I laugh. Love this daughter of mine!
