For some weird reason, this is how Koby has always said please, with his own sign language - I figured I'd document it. We have begun to say simple prayers with Koby right before he goes to bed each night. He kneels down, closes his eyes (well blinks repeatedly), and folds his arms. He says "Cheesus" and "Daddyyyyy, Praaaa" and then gives an "Ame-a".
Raising kids is probably the coolest experience ever. Koby has said Jesus since he was about 11 months. A few months ago, at his grandma's house, he points to this TINY picture of Jesus on the fridge, and says "Cheesus". A few weeks ago we were visiting Emily. Koby walks into her roommate's room and points to a picture of Jesus on the wall and says, "Cheesus". Even when he was just barely one, at church he will point to the pictures on the wall and say, "Cheesus." But the thing that amazes me is all artists draw Jesus in their own way, however Koby knows exactly who Jesus is in each picture. It's cool to have a little one with you that was so recently with Jesus:)
At the park last week this little girl kept following us and wanting to play with Koby. While I was washing the dripping blood from Koby's nose, the little girl spots Koby's ear and says... "Oh cuuuuute! He has a curly ear! I've never seen that before. He is the cutest baby ever." Then later on Koby calls me Mommy and she turns to me and says..."You're his Mom? I thought you were his sister!" So I say, "Well how old do you think I am" and she says, "maybe 29 or 30". Haha. Oh kids.
Summer has begun! We are loving the outdoors. Seven Peaks has opened up-which means swimming any day we want, and school is out - which means the playground is empty:). Last week Catherine and I ventured out on for a bike ride with the 3 kids. It was a site and I wish we had a picture...Two moms on a tandem bike with three kids, stopped on a hill, and trying to pedal together to get started again.
This summer should bring many new adventures:)
