Tiny Talk Tuesday: Monsters and a New Baby

Elyse (4) leaned over part way through the movie Monsters Vs. Aliens and said glumly, "I wish I had super powers so I could save the day."

Isaiah (3) a few days after he heard the news that we were having another baby, the excitement was still high and the kids had about a million questions but this one caught us off guard as it was stated with such heart felt wondering "Are we going to keep Elijah?" (Elijah is of course his little brother)

Photo Story Friday Make Way For Baby

And while you're at it make way for mommy, she's gonna need a little more room to squeeze by. This is what comes from deciding that your family does not feel complete and trying for one more. I am happy to say that after only 3 1/2 months of trying we are expecting baby number 4. I am dismayed to announce that baby number 4 is code for you are going to look like humpty-dumpty in 8 short weeks.

In an attempt to keep my very excited 4 year old daughter up to date on the baby's growth I started out telling her the size of the baby each week. You know, "this week the baby is the size of a poppy seed, now it's the length of a nail head..." all this has resulted in the weekly question on Elyse's part..."What is the baby today?" My poor child thinks her sibling is metamorphosing into all kinds new things in it's quest to finally become, and Elyse has her mind firmly made up on this, a baby sister.

Yesterday I told her it was the size of a bean, prompting this reaction from her. "Why is our baby a bean? I like beans, can we have beans for dinner tonight?"
