Adam: calls cement mixers "ma-ment mixers" and calls pajamas "ah-jamas."
The other day when he demanded I "turn dis off!" in regards to the commercials in a taped from TV movie, Ellie goes "it's not called turning it off. It's called 'face forward,' Adam!"
The kids have discovered some musical loves lately, thanks to my iPod playing songs at random. Current favorites are Say Liza! by Liza Minnelli and anything by Dolly Parton. 9 to 5 came on the other night and Ellie instantly fell in love - we had to listen to it a couple of times, and then I switched over to listening to only Dolly and many of the songs were big hits with her. Tonight on the drive home, lots of 9 to 5 and Ellie saying "this is my jam!' and Adam yelling "I'M JAMMING!" Ellie really likes to talk about "jams," as in the other day when we were listening to Run the World by Beyonce (who run the world? GIRLS!) and Ellie goes "mom, when you were little, did this used to be your jam?"
The kids have really enjoyed having so much great time with Grandma Rosie over the past two weeks - when they see her, they run over and demand hugs. There's been a lot of reading books together, some good arting, and some fun lunch and dinner dates. The kids are really lucky to have such a GREAT great-grandma.
They've also been playing really nicely with each other as of late. There's still screaming and squabbling, sure, but they are also finding that it's more fun to play together than fight with each other, and Tim and I certainly appreciate it!
