Earlier this week Steve and I heard Nathan talking to Alexa in the middle of the night. Steve went in and he was saying “Alexa, tuck me in” over and over again in his sleep!
Last week when Steve was saying goodnight to Nathan he said, “Daddy, today at school I was trying to spell my name but Alison stole the ‘N’.” To which Steve responded, “what about the ‘a’?”. Nathan got excited and exclaimed, “Yea! She took that too!”
~ My current favorite phrase from Nathan. He is really good about telling Steve and I that he loves us. Followed by “I’ll love you forever”, and then “I’ll never stop loving you”. It makes me so happy.
The boys are currently attempting to take a nap. I’m sitting in the room with them while they jabber to each other. Nathan just said to Anthony, “I’m going to marker on you with pretend marker”… so mean.
Yesterday and today Nathan has made everyone breakfast. Yesterday Steve and I came downstairs and Nathan had put out four glasses of orange juice mixed with water, four plates, and on each of the four plates he had put a little pile of blueberries. He was grinning ear to ear as he happily told us he had made breakfast. Then this morning Anthony and Nathan made themselves toast and were proudly munching away.
Steve: “You guys are eating all of these oranges. You’re going to poop sour patch kids”
Nathan: “People don’t do that”
…is my two front teeth. Well, one of them at least. The first week in December I got a phone call from the boys school telling me that Nathan had gotten into an accident in gym class. Apparently he had tripped over a ball and hit his front teeth off the ground. There was a lot of bleeding so the school felt like they should call us to let us know incase we wanted to go to the dentist. I ended up driving to school to check up on him and took him home for the day. Now, that tooth is starting to turn black. It is definitely dying.
I can see why kids get “practice” teeth. Hopefully it stays in his head for a few years until he’s ready to start losing the baby teeth. I think it’s time to schedule their first dentist appointment!
