Chloe said a prayer a few days ago, and I jotted it down on my phone so I would remember to post it on here... We were having a snack late at night and she kept insisting that we pray. We did 4 or 5 times with me leading a few times and then brit leading once and she copied everything we said and then i said "Chloe, your turn!" and we sat there heads bowed eyes closed and she said "Lord Jesus, thank you for mommy and daddy. thanks briney and chucky and jim. thanks food. amen!" I teared up. It was amazing.

So my two year old loves freeze pops, you know, those tubular popsicles that you can keep on hand always cuz they don't HAVE to be in the freezer, and you can pop them in when a days coming you'll want them and you can use them to keep stuff cold in your cooler and they're just great??? yeah those things. so anyways my two year old loves the things, but was whining that they were cold so.... i put them in her sock!! i always bust them in half to open them, probably cuz i'm in a big hurry to keep her occupied and lost the scissors, or maybe they're dirty, or whatever... so a pair of socks makes great popscicle insulators...above is a picture from 10 minutes ago... and now whenever she asks for popscicles, if we don't bring them with, she says, 'mommy, socky please!'.
and it works for me. on wednesdays or any other day.

she's growing up so fast! She just brought me a gallon of milk and her sippy cup and asked, 'Mommy, more milk please!' She's such a good girl! Now only if we could get her off the sippy cup.... lol. and out of our bed while we're at it!!! She sings 'Jesus loves me' and 'rock a bye baby' and 'twinkle twinkle little star' and her all time favorite, 'popit, yock it, pokkadotit, counwify!!' (for those of you who don't recognize it, thats a hannah montana song!) lol.... just amazing!
