That's incredible!

Some times I wonder what I could possibly have been thinking to give up my fancy-free childless lifestyle. But other times, well, I can't imagine not having my sweet little ones. This afternoon reminded me of that fact:

Jonathan: "Mommy, may I have some cheese? I ask instead of fussing!"

Me: "Jonathan, you did! Good job! Yes, you may have some cheese."

Jonathan: "Mommy, mommy! That’s incredible!" *big smile*

(The background is that we've been working hard on asking nicely the first time instead of fussing first and asking nicely after we've reminded him. Evidently Gabe's discussions with him about this are paying off!)

Emily! You've blogged so much in the last 2 days. It's nice to catch up on your life. Your sister looks great, in the picture of her. And, how long did the napping house stay asleep?

I know what you mean :-) Lately Peyton has been giving the hugest hugs and calling me his superhero and breaking into other general enthusiasm when I do the smallest things for him :-) Perhaps he's mimicking my over-excitement when he does the right thing :-)
