Bobby-isms and Life's Little Adjustments

It's been quite the eventful few weeks.  Life has definitely changed around here, and I am loving our new norm.  Yes, of course it's hard, and tiring; but, I wouldn't trade it for anything.  Along with adjusting to our new little one, we've had the sickies around here, and more company (I'll recap about it all soon enough!).  I actually have a lot to catch up on with the blog, but it's what to expect with a 2 year old, and 7 week old.  I'm hoping to recap our holidays, Evie's birth, and some other events or changes.

Now, onto Bobby...

He's been quite the character lately.  After all of our help left, he had a hard time adjusting to having a sibling.  He has always had my full attention, 100% of the time.  But, with little Evie - not so much.  Poor guy.  He has been great with her, but acting out more toward Bob and I.  Things have definitely gotten better over the past few days.  It could be because he's been sick, but I hope not!

Here are some of the things he's been saying lately:

-  He's somehow learned to say "sorry" to everything that happens.  He'll drop his fork, and say, "sorry, mommy."  He'll apologize for things that don't need an apology.  (That's actually one of my pet peeves about myself!).  I'm not sure where he picked this up, but it is cute and endearing.

-  My sister came to visit for a few weeks.  Her name is Kathy, and he pronounced it "khaki."  I thought that was funny and cute too!

-  We say our prayers for nap time and bedtime.  He told me last night, "I want Baby Jesus to come to my house tomorrow."  I tried to explain to him that Jesus is always here, but his little mind didn't quite grasp it.  He calls Jesus, Baby Jesus, because of what he learned about Christmas, and it's true meaning.  He also has asked to pray for our cleaning lady, Ann, and Mickey Mouse.  And, he of course prays for his family, friends, and classmates.  He'll always pray for Winston "Pup," too.  

-  The other night, after reading a book, he closed it and said, "Amen," instead of "The End."

-  He tells me many times throughout the day, "mommy, I'm so happy." It makes my heart melt.  I told him the other day, that I hope he's always happy in life.

-  I always tell him that he can play "for a little bit," or watch T.V. "for a little bit" to keep him preoccupied while I do something.  So, now, anytime before nap or bedtime, he asks if he can watch T.V. or play "for a lil' bit."  Again...super cute, and his way of stalling bedtime!

-  Today, he was calling me from the family room.  He kept saying, "hey babe."  I asked him where he heard that, and he said daddy.  Bob and I will call each other "babe" in conversation a lot.  

It is so amazing how much he picks up on!  We really do try and watch what we say and do.  He's so sweet, and is always asking to snuggle.  I hate that I can't do it each time, because of trying to take care of both he and Evie.  He seems to also notice more now when things are scary.  He told me today the cow-tipping (tractors) scene from Cars was scary. He's always talking about thunder, and the noises he hears in the house.  He sleeps with his door open, a hall light on, and now, a night light in his room.  I love this age, and he has become quite entertaining!  He talks a mile a minute, and I can't get in a word sometimes (especially in the car!).

Oh, and little Miss Evie started cooing and babbling this past week too!  I love her socializing!
