As the boys continue to talk more and more and have conversations with each other, Michael and I find ourselves laughing hysterically several times a day.  I love hearing children talk- listening to them try to put together correct phrasing and explain what they are thinking.  They’re so innocent and not yet hardened by life.  I have so much to learn from them…

Here are some of my favorites as of late:


(Taking a rock out of his coat pocket and pausing to look at it and squeeze it)

“What’s that?”

“It’s a rock I picked up from the ground where Dr. Chuck was buried.”

He keeps it with him in his pocket.



(Praying at lunch)  “God.  Thank you for drinks, and people, and Simon.  Amen.”

(Riding in the car looking out the window) “Grandma Julie and Grandpa Bob are coming next time.  All the Texas guys are coming next time.”

(Staring at me in the rearview mirror)  “Mommy, you’re beautiful when you take me to the park.”

So sweet.

And then this happens…

Trevor:  “Mommy, do you have another baby?  You’re fat.”

Elliott:  “Yeah, you’re fat!”  (While they both poke my belly…)

And then the moments you can’t help but laugh because they make no sense at all…

Elliott:  “Daddy, when you drive it feels like there is a bug on me.”

Hahaha, love these boys.  They make my heart full. :)

  1. Ahhhhh…they make my heart full! Trev carrying a rock from Dr. Chuck’s gravesite makes my heart soar…I love his sensitivity and would like more of that myself. xoxox Elliott calling me one of they guys from Texas overflows my heart…I can’t wait to hold him. And this last picture of the three…look at Trevor’s arm protective around Simon and then Simon’s reaching out to touch Elliott. They are connected at the heart, Jen, uniquely by the Lord…just as you, Christina and Elli are. I love you, Mom

  2. Elliott was thrilled I took that last picture. Can you tell? hahaha love them with all my heart :)

  3. Hey Christina, I miss you…bet you are soooo cute….I’m thankful you can visit with your sister and “guys” Trevor is growing so fast! Maybe he needs a “treasure box” for his priceless keepsakes….Thanks Jenni for sharing–love you all Norma Kay
