When did he grow so fast?

Man, Oliver is hilarious. The boys are in the tub and I give Oliver his toothbrush.

Me: "Oliver, brush your teeth."

Oliver: "Whan too-paate Momma. Peeaas."

Me: "Okay, here ya go. Say thank you Momma." (Put toothpaste on his toothbrush.)

Oliver: "Tank-ooo Momma."

[Liam starts whining, wanting Oliver's toothbrush.]

Me: " Liam, you want a toothbrush too?" (Give Liam Justin's toothbrush.)

Oliver: "Miam whan too-paate too Momma."

Me: "No bud, Liam is too little for toothpaste. He can't have any."

Oliver: "Ollvr got toopaate, Momma."

Me: "Yes, well you are a big boy, Oliver and Liam is still too little."

Oliver: "No Momma, Ollvr a man."

Me: (Looking astonished and covered in water...) "Well then, excuse me. Oliver is a man."

Rough and Tumble

Things are in their places. It now feels like home. Once the floors are cleaned and toys are put away, after naptime, I will take some photos. But, for now, I am enjoying the best job of all. Being Mommy. So, the boys and I are out to the backyard (fenced!) for a little rough and tumble. Life is grand.

Guess what?! I am doing yucky 5 day old dishes right now! In my DISHWASHER! Oh and I am alive, surrounded by boxes. Well actually it isn't too bad. Both of the kids rooms are done and the kitchen and bathroom and living room are done. I just have our bedroom and the dining room and office. Moving is exhausting. I lost 7 pounds! I have discovered unknown strength! I moved the entire desk by myself upstairs into a different room! I put together our solid wood bookshelf! I moved an armour larger than myself across a room! I figured out the drill! I killed a spider by myself! I am growing up. Aww. Justin got me a surprise on Father's day. I show that later. I will post photos when it is all done later this week.

our house, is a very very very fine house.

Whew... What a week. We purchased our very first home on Monday. Yikes. What a horrific experience that was! Our closing was over 2 hours long. It was a very tense and nerve-racking day. But, we are home-owners now! Hooray! So, I am busy finishing packing and cleaning and moving. Geesh. How did we accumulate so much junk?! I am amazed at the sheer amount of boxes we have gone through. Ridiculous. Now, our little family are Covington-ites. Covington-ians. We live in Covington. You get my drift. So, prayers that I don't completely lose my mind during this transition are so appreciated. We took our first load yesterday. We have no couch, no chairs, no table. Today we are taking more. It is supposed to rain this weekend, so we are trying to get as much done during the week as we can. So, please excuse my absence for a few days... weeks... Peace out homies.
