Out of Elijah's mouth



We got out Elijah's old play mat that he used to roll around on when he was a baby. We are slowly getting out more and more baby things in preparation for Not-Zooter's arrival. So Elijah has been pretending to be a baby and playing on the play mat, even though he is far too big for it. Today he was laying on it and he said, "Animal pway mat. For baby bru-er. Baby bru-er coming soon!" :) So he really does know that his brother is coming soon! He has been acting like we are speaking in German whenever we talk about his brother, so his acknowledgment of him was a nice surprise.

When I was putting Elijah to bed last night I said, "I love you, sweetie" and he responded with, "I 'ove you, Mom. Happy Muver's Day, Mom." He and Dan had given me some flowers as an early Mother's Day gift, so he must have had it on the brain. So sooo sweet.
