“When God wants a great work done in the world or a great wrong righted, he goes about it in a very unusual way. He doesn’t stir up his earthquakes or send forth his thunderbolts. Instead, he has a helpless baby born, perhaps in a simple home and of some obscure mother. And then God puts the idea into the mother’s heart, and she puts it into the baby’s mind. And then God waits. The greatest forces in the world are not the earthquakes and the thunderbolts. The greatest forces in the world are babies.” ~ET Sullivan

The darndest things

Whatcha doin' honey? (Leah says this to anyone and everyone. It must be the precursor to "why?" because she asks about every 15 seconds.)
What's this? (Usually I can ask her right back and she'll tell me what it is.)
Oh, poor panties. (When she has had an accident)
Are you blooding? (When someone gets an owie. You have to be bleeding to get a band aid at our house.)

slipperly (slippery)
rackinaw cheese (macaroni & cheese)
poopace (toothpaste)
p butter delly (peanut butter and jelly)
Pliget (Piglet)
Floodle (Pluto)

The other day for lunch I was feeling lazy and gave her a slice of bread with peanut butter on it. (She usually only eats the peanut butter anyway...) She said "I need jelly." I slathered some jelly on top of the peanut butter, after which she replied "I want to hide it." So we ended up with a complete sandwich anyway. She is very resourceful with her words!

She is so cute! It's amazing to hear how articulate she is (well at least how you are writing it).
