Out of the mouths of babes

Instead of pictures, I thought I'd share some funny quotes from Jack. He's full of hilarious lines these days!

After seeing a deer eating grass on the side of the road: "Wooooow! I want to shoot it!"
--That's Brian's boy alright.

When Ali Grace had her one-year check up and was going to get shots I explained to him what was giong to happen. A couple minutes later he says, "Da nurse going to come in and shoot Ali Gace."

When we were at my parents a few weeks ago my Mom observed this scene-- The baby he was playing with was bad so he turned her over, spanked her and then hugged her, told her he loved her, and quoted 'his verse' to her (exactly the way he says it): "Children, obey your parents in the Lord, this for right. Ephesians 6:1." This is how we discipline, and I think he's gotten it down pretty good. Sweet boy.

On the way out of town in the car Ali was crying so Jack started singing the "sleepy song" as I've named it (It's the "Go to sleep, go to sleep, go to sleep my sweet baby" song): He's sweetly looking at Ali Grace and singing, "La la la, la la laaaa..." My heart burst! He'll also rub a baby doll's back and sing this. Ali has started doing this too but her singing is more like grunting. This is how we put them to bed--rubbing their back and singing for just a minute. I think they like it.

Yesterday morning--"I'm a tiger! ROOOOAR!!!! Tigers eat grapes and get big and strong like Papa!"

This morning when Ali and I went in his room to get him out of bed-- "ROOOOAR!!! I'm a tiger! MOOOOO!!! HOO HOO HOO! Gobble Gobble! I'm a turkey!"

He loooooooves to "go shooting" around the house and when asked what he's shooting he says, "Lots of animals."--I think he's going to be a hunter.

For months and months whenever we asked him what he dreamed about he would say, "The water and the rain." After going to a Rison football game his response is now, "The water and the rain, and the football players."

Every once-in-a-while I talk to the kids about the baby in Mommy's belly and let them touch my belly and look at it. And I'll ask Jack what he thinks the baby will be--a baby girl, or a baby boy. His only response to this and any other questions about it is, "Name him Bo-wen." I think he's saying Bodin which is the name we're thinking of if it's a boy. I guess he's heard us talking about it a good bit. And he's adamant!!! So he must think we're having a boy. :) If it's a girl we're thinking Katherine Elizabeth and call her Kate. We're all about the nicknames!

Also at my parent's house a few weeks ago my Mom and Dad had Jack and Ali Grace sitting on the kitchen counter watching Papa make breakfast. My Mom was laughing saying that one day there would be a bunch of kids all lined up on the counter watching. Then she said we'd have Bo sitting there, or Katherine. And Jack very seriously said, "No Katherine, don't want Katherine, Katherine is UCKY!!!" (yucky)

There are SOOOO many more funny little things that Jack says, most I can't think of right now. Suffice it to say that the boy keeps us laughing with his wit and wisdom. And we looooove him!

I think Katherine Elizabeth is the most beautiful name in the world. Seriously. Could be that I think that because it is my name too. :)
