mouths of babes...

Laci woke me up this morning by stroking my face and hair, followed by an Eskimow Kiss. What a sweety! Who knew our nightly ritual would become my morning greeting?

I've debated whether or not to share this one, but I figure it happens in every family. The other night we were kneeling for family prayer when someone tooted. Jacob, 14-month-old Jacob, laughed, took out his pacifier and mimicked the sound with his mouth!

A few days ago -
Laci: "Mom, can you turn on Princess Music?"

Me: "What is Princess Music?"

Laci: "Tom and Jerry."

Me: "You want to watch Tom and Jerry?"

Laci: "No. Tom and Jerry. I dance to Princess Music."

Me: "I don't know what Princess Music is, Lace. I'm sorry."

Later that day.. I turned on classical music. Laci ran over so excited: "Mom, Princess Music!"

Yesterday at breakfast -
Laci: "I want to read scriptures again." (We had just finished reading scriptures.)

Me: "You do?"

Laci: "Yeah!"

Me: "Why?" (just curious to see what her answer would be...)

Laci: "good choices...Jesus Christ"

Me: "Reading scriptures helps you make good choices, and you get to learn about Jesus Christ?"

Laci: "Yeah. Jesus died."

Me: "We just read about that, huh?"

Laci: "Yeah. Come back to Earth."

Me: "He came back to Earth? Who did He visit?"

Laci: "Heavenly Father...Nephites."

where did she come from?

Laci can be very eccentric. For example...

Outfit #1

You think Superman would want to go out in this?

Pants on...

...and, literally 2 minutes later, same outfit without the pants!

Is she wearing shoes over her pajamas?

When she gets bored inventing with her own clothes, she experiments with Jacob's.

alive and well

Some of you are probably wondering if I'm even still alive! I am. We moved into our new house on the 1st. We're still in Eagle Mountain, and yes, we're still in Utah. Did I ever mention that we never wanted to live in Utah? And yet, here we are! (Actually, I've come to really fall in love with our area and the people here. And, ironically, I feel like I'm home.)

Jacob has had such a terrible time in the last 4 weeks. Starting with oral herpes (don't know the technical term), which is basically a virus resulting in canker sores all over the inside of the mouth - and because it's a virus cannot be treated. He just had to suffer through it till it went away on its own. He just got over it last week. At the same time, he broke out with impitigo on his face, which was treated with an antibiotic. Now he has a yeast infection that I swear I've treated 500 times since the last time he was given an antibiotic! And just when we thought he was getting better, he comes down with the flu - vomit and diahrrea - since Saturday. (There goes that Activia tip to counteract the anitbiotic by replenishing the good bacteria.) Aside from the fact that I am sick of my house, I feel so bad for my little guy! Any time Jacob gets sick it snowballs like this - one thing after another. He just can't get a break! All the while, he has to endure it all.

Laci has been a trooper. She also got the oral herpes - undoubtedly from sharing food and drinks, even though I tried to explain to her that she shouldn't. But what are ya gonna do? A 3-year-old can only understand so much. Hers lasted maybe a week, and she only got only one sore, and didn't complain about it once! The only way I saw it is because it was located above her top front teeth. But that's how Laci is when she gets sick; unless there are visible symptoms, I'd never know otherwise. Go figure. She's so active, I know she's been getting cabin-fever, too. I finally ventured out to the grocery store today, since Jacob hasn't thrown up in two days.

Anyway, my intent is not to complain or vent. This has just been my life for the last few weeks - and, the reason for no posts.
