A sentence

James actually said a clear sentence this morning, which I thought I had heard before but Eliot confirmed it. He said, "what is that?" very clearly, followed by "and that?" afterwards (asking about Eliot's coffee cup and percolator).

Since we've never heard him say a sentence before, let alone the words "what," "is," and "and", this was huge for us!! He does say"that" all the time asking what things are, but I can't believe he made a sentence. This is a kid that still doesn't call me mama.

Some other cute things he is doing is picking flowers to bring to me (aww), giving me nose kisses, and helping me pick tomatoes and beans from the garden. He knows what color they are supposed to be when they are ripe and picks only the ripe ones to put in the basket (most of the time, anyway).

He is also very curious, asking "that?" all the time wanting to know what things are. And the other day, I held up a picture of a kitty and asked him what it was, and instead of signing or saying kitty, he went to his toy car and pushed the engine button till it said "purrs like a kitten, meow!" :-)

In little girl news, I am 31 weeks and tired all the time. She gets hiccups a lit and does karate moves all the time, it's so cute! The nursery is almost done (pictures to come when done), and I have almost everything ready. I am looking into hypnobirthing since I am going to a birth center ( next to the hospital) this time and am hoping for a natural birth.

Other than that, we are having lots of stay-cations and enjoying our little family. :-)

And a few pics for your enjoyment, including one of us with my friend Chris at his wedding...

  1. Hey Kate, I am excited to hear you are going to a birth center and you are going to try to go natural with this one. I don't know if I mentioned it before or not, but I wanted to recommend that you look into getting a doula. I was something that was recommended to us before Annabelle and we used her for both births and I truly believe she played a tremendous role in helping me to go natural. Good luck, not long now.
