Heard at our house this week: the saga continues


"I just went to put on his hat and I touched his head a little hard. If I hurt him do you think he would have cried? Is all of his head soft? Do you think he's OK? Can you put on his hat?"—Dave

"When can I hold him standing up? Don't you trust me? I am very responsible. I just got 100 on my spelling test!"—Sabrina

Me: "What do you get when a breastfeeding mommy jumps up and down and then feeds her baby?" Kids: "What?" Me: "A milkshake!" Kids: [Stare at me blankly.]

"Hi, mooshie! He looks like such a mooshie."—Sabrina

"He looks like ME!"—Max

"He seems to really enjoy pooping. You can just tell."—Dave

"Ay-ee's eye-ing! Eh im!"—Max ["The baby's crying! Get him!"]

"When I was carrying him before I wasn't carrying him with two hands, I was mainly holding his chest in my arm, do you think he's OK?"—Dave

Me: "Does he smell like spit up?" Sabrina: "I think he smells like flowers."

"Honey,  I know he's not crying but he looks hungry."—Dave [Repeat variations of this 10,000 times]

"HE JUST ATE FIVE MINUTES AGO! HE ISN'T HUNGRY!"—Me

"I think he is eating too much!"—Sabrina

"Ehn eyes ooh ea!"—Max ["Ben likes to eat!"]

"I love how his belly button swirls. It's like a designer belly button!"—Sabrina

"I think he needs to do more face time."—Dave (He meant tummy time.) 

Me: "I would just like to let everyone know that I am going to go take a five-minute shower and I am hoping you all survive without me. Dave, the baby is NOT hungry."

"Wouldn't it be great if diapers changed themselves?"—Sabrina

"Eye? Me?"—Max ["Did I cry a lot when I was a baby?"]

"Honey, I was sure I turned the flash off before I took a picture of the baby but then the flash went off! I couldn't believe it! Do you think it hurt his eyes? Is he OK?"—Dave

"Maaaaaaaax, don't touch his head, just his hand! Be gentle! He's just a baby!"—Sabrina

"Ben could be the President of the United States someday. I may be holding a President!"—Dave

    1. Dave, honey, is this you? Ha ha. I don't think I could handle two Daves insisting that the baby is hungry every five minutes.

    A baby's head is supposed to be soft!! I was born with a severe case of craniosynostosis. Translation? I was born without any soft spots!! As resulted, I needed to be entrusted into the hands of neurosurgeon Dr. J.--not once--but twice as a baby!! I'm just sayin'.... ;)
    Love you later, Raelyn
    PS. I love, love, love these posts!! ;-D
