Here are some family funnies that just had to be shared, that I didn't want to forget.
-Last week Emma was crying in the middle of the night, I went to go get her and discovered that she had stripped down to the suit she was born in and proceeded to mark her territory in her crib. I looked at the clock and saw that it was 2:30 am. Which meant there was no chance of sneaking a pair of fresh jammies from the dresser in Ruby's room, no going back to her own bed, and there was no way I was changing sheets that early in the morning. So I took her frigid little body back to bed and finished out the night sleeping like a champ since she cuddled with Jed.
-Ruby has been going back and forth on what she wants to be for Halloween and could spend hours pouring over costumes on the internet with me. When I picked her up from Preschool last Friday we had this little conversation.
Ruby: "Mommy you promised I could be Ariel for Halloween. "
Me: "Ruby don't you think you would make a good Emily Elizabeth and Emma would make the cutest Clifford the Big Red Dog?"
Ruby: " No! I think I would make a cute Ariel and Emma would be the cutest Ursula ever."
Me: "Where did you get that idea, Ruby?"
Ruby: "The Holy Ghost."
-My girls have come down with a serious love of washable body art, which was inspired from a little visit from Grandma Cook's house while I was at a Dr. appointment. I came back to Ruby being fully tattooed with glasses, spiders, flowers, chair on her leg, a rainbow, and a purple mustache. Mind you my mother did beautiful work, in fact it could have become her full time profession. Ruby assured me it would come off with a wipe. To this day the girls love a little self produced body art, Ruby always has a rainbow on her hand and Emma whatever contact she can make with the marker. Yes, my girls had fun yesterday.
At preschool yesterday, they made witches hats. When I came to pick Miss Ruby up her teacher stopped me at the door to tell me of a tangent Ruby went off on in class. She told her teacher that they "Aren't witches hats but wizard hats like Mary Potter wears. I listen to Mary Potter in the car but mommy won't let me watch it because it is too scary. But when I am older she will let me and Emma watch it." I am so glad that Mrs. Rodabaugh shares these little tidbits with me because I wouldn't know about them otherwise.
As for the pregnancy everything has been going extremely well. I have had a cold and sometimes in the morning the congestion causes my stomach to constrict when I cough. One morning when I got sick I had to use the girls bathroom because Jed was in ours. Ruby came screeching into our room screaming "Daddy! Mommies throwing up!" Once I came out I told her I was ok, and she said "Someday mommy, when I get big, I'm going to throw up just like you."
