Bible Verse of the Day

We live in a condo, so it’s impossible to keep a pet.  But we do harbor hopes of owning a pet one fine day.

Recently Ethan started role-playing as an animal doctor.  He would tell us all that he has changed his name to become “Animal Doctor” and that he would tell all his friends in school he has changed his name too.  He would use his Ben 10 watch (with light feature) to check our mouths and ears, and declare us “Healthy!”

We figured it might be because he wanted to have a pet of his own.  So this conversation ensued.

Daddy: Ethan, would you like to have a pet?
Ethan: Yes!
Daddy: What pet would you like?
Ethan (without hesitation): A GIRAFFE!


Hannah’s favorite word (besides “Mommy”) has got to be “Bar-beee!”  She is definitely NOT referring to the doll of a similar sounding name, that’s for sure. 

When she opens a book, she will point at the pictures and say, “Bar-beee!   Bar-beee!” 

When she hears a dog barking, she’ll laugh and say, “Bar-bee!”

When she sees a bird flying, she’ll point and scream, “Bar-bee!!”

She even points at our photographs at home and goes, “Bar-beeee! Bar-beeee!!!”

All the soft toys and animals are “Bar-beee!” to her.

I know she will soon outgrow this phase when she adds more words to her vocabulary, but right now sometimes it is just so amusing to hear her go, “Bar-beee!” and he brother *correcting* her, “Not Bar-beeee, Hannah…that’s an apple!” LOL
