his powers of observation...

me: (rolling red play-doh into a log shape)
sam: it looks like a sidewalk chalk!

me: (rolling brown play-doh into a log shape)
sam: it looks like a poop!

that is all today.

sweetest prayer. ever.

our bedtime routine goes something like this: bath, pjs, brush teeth, read books, then hop into the rocking chair to pray and sing some songs. tonight i told sam it was time to pray...usually, i just say a very general prayer--thankfulness for events of the day, etc...tonight, sammy folded his hands and said "oh God..." the rest of the prayer went like this:

me: i'm thankful for...
sam: dada!
me: i'm thankful for...
sam: mama!
me: i'm thankful for...
sam: cake!
me: i'm thankful for...
sam: milk!
me: i'm thankful for...
sam: food!
me: in jesus' name...
sam: amen.

oh my...so very sweet.
i'm thankful for...
THIS BOY!

funny boys...

i realize i still need to post about sam's bday, but sickness has overtaken our house...in the form of hand, foot and mouth virus. poor little boys...they are on the mend, now, fevers are gone.

last night went like this:
j: sam, what would make you feel better?
s: feel better.
j: what would make you feel better?
s: cookies!
