Kids are funny

Geneva said, "Ants can't dance because they don't have any hips."
I think she's right about that.

Speaking of Geneva, pictures like this keep popping up all around the house:

This is a plastic bin used as a toy box, in case you couldn't tell.
Dexter saw it in the kitchen and exclaimed to Geneva, "Oh, that's a picture of the two of us fall in love!"
How sweet! (At what point should I be concerned about this?)

Ravenna said to Spencer, "You're a good brother; I'll remember that when I'm a dictator." I didn't know she had aspirations to be a dictator.

Then she said to Christian and me, "You're a good brother, too, and you're a good Mom. I'll make you all members of my cabinet."
Of course she never said she would be an evil dictator. She is really very thoughtful and considerate.

Here's a happy chubby baby picture for good measure:

Four months old and about 20 pounds!

More of the silly three-year-old sayings

Dexter likes hot chocolate. He was looking at the box that holds the packets and looking at the letters, he said, "N-E-S-T-L-E, that spells 'hot chocolate.'" Actually, it took a couple of attempts for me to convince him that the 's' wasn't a 'c.'

He likes to play a game with our dog, which is fun for Dexter, but not for the dog. Basically, he likes to pour water on him. Recently, he started saying to the dog as he chases him with a cup of water, "There you are you are, old chap!" I don't know why he says, "you are," twice.
Spencer says he got it from a Thomas movie.

And leaving the car to cross a street or parking lot he says, "I want to hold your handle, or else I will get tricked by a car!"
I don't know where he got 'tricked' by a car, but I love that he calls my hand a 'handle.'
