I woke up this morning and couldn't find my ankles...

I can't believe this little bug is going to be THREE this summer. Wow. He's still my baby though. I baby him way too much.

He never picks up his toys.

He rarely gets in trouble.

I still carry him all around.

But in a few months he won't be the actual baby of the family and I have mixed feelings about that. I'm wondering how he will cope. I'm wondering how I will deal with him figuring out his place.

Ethan and Charlotte had a hard time when he was born figuring out their places. Oh, it was HARD on all of us. But eventually they worked it out and then it was wonderful.

Caden loves to talk about baby Judah...

"Baby Judah num out now?"

"I tiss baby Judah!"

"Baby Judah num out-BOOM!"

"Baby Judah dis little?"

He goes between wanting to be the baby, or asking if he's the baby, or insisting he's the baby and wanting to be a big boy.

I'm not as nervous about having 4 as I was about having 3. I mean, surely 4 can't be that much harder than 3 right? And Ethan and Charlotte help out alot. They have taken over buckling Caden in his carseat and unbuckling him, which helps me out a lot as I tend to get out of breath just getting into my seat, let alone crawling in and wrangling a toddler.

Conversations with Charlotte: Chocolate Milk

Charlotte: Why don't you like chocolate milk?

Me: It's too sweet. I like white milk.

Charlotte: Maybe when you are older you will like it. Maybe when you are 31 you will like chocolate milk.

Me: Maybe...

Charlotte: I can't wait until I get to be 31.

Me: That's a long time for you.

Charlotte: But it didn't take very long to get me 4!

"I know what one and a half means- a half whole and a half little!"
