Weston: "Stop breaking all the tunnels in my fort! You have to be more careful, Sophie!"
Sophie: "I will be more careful this time. I will!"
Weston: "Sorry for yelling at you."
Sophie: "It's okay."
I still remember Weston and Sophie's first real conversation, ever, which was an endless round of "guess what, chicken butt," that eventually morphed into, "guess what, chicken poopy...ewwww!" That was last September, shortly after Sophie turned 2.
Now they talk and play and sometimes fight all the day long, each and every day. There are so many hilarious and sweet exchanges that I think I will remember, that are worth remembering (but of course I don't). I hope to record at least some of them, because at the rate they are growing up, these adorable conversations will not last forever! Here are a few funny things that the kids have said (not necessarily to each other) during this past month:
Sophie (during night-time prayer): "Please bless Heavenly Father for the yummy dinner, and please bless daddy that he can deserve his movie (???), and please bless this earth that we like."
Weston (saying dinner prayer): "Please bless grandma Ruth that she will feel better, and please bless grandma Laurie that she will feel better..."
Sophie (very emphatically, in an almost scolding tone): "You don't need to pray for grandma Laurie any more!! She is all better now!"
She does have a habit of correcting Weston during prayers (much to our chagrin), and if you glance at the expression on her face while Weston prays, it is almost always one of consternation, as if she never quite approves of what he is saying!
