Stuff my Daughter Says

Mary Grace discovered talking not too long ago, she has yet to stop. Recently her volume level has easily tripled. Perhaps she feels she has to speak so loud so that she can be heard in a full house. Yet in the midst of the ear-splitting gibberish are some real gems. Almost each day we succumb to belly laughs at our daughter's words. While we may simply be biased parents, I thought I might share some of her more recent memorable quotes.

"You are a boy with food and I'm Jesus throwing a ball"

"Mommy, do you have any more babies in your belly?"

"My horsie came out of my belly, so I have to make peanut butter sandwiches for his soccer game later."

"My beard can grow a beard."

"My belly makes milk for my baby."

"When my fingers grow toenails, I bite them off."

"He (Nehemiah) goes poop out of his horn"

She is also a rather sweet big sister. When she first heard Nehemiah cry, she repeatedly told him, "Don't worry Bubba, I'm right here." And then proceeded to sing "You are my Sunshine" as he cried.

I have a feeling her words will continue to bring smiles to our faces for quite some time to come.
