Ciaran went food shopping with me all by himself. I don't really get much alone time with any of the boys but I really do enjoy it now and then. We are driving in the truck and he says to me. "Mom, when we grow up, there will be 4 daddies and 2 mommys Me and my brothers and Dad will be four dads and you and Calleigh will be 2 moms". He then tells me he wants to have six babies. He said " I love our big family and want to have a big family" "Is it good to love a big family?" "Cause I really think it's great to have a big family. I want to name my kids Susie, Sam, Tree Tree, Duke and I have to think of 2 more names." He then asked me if birds, dogs, fish and all animals have families.
Colin asked me to come downstairs and sit on the couch with him. I go and sit with him and he says "Mom, if we were to go on a date I would take you on a picnic in the park. I would bring apples, lollipops, meat, chicken and more lollipops for dessert. When we were done eating we could go and sit and just look at the lake together. Or if it was night we could look up at the stars" I think he might make a good boyfriend/husband! I decided to ask Cormac what he would do on a date..."I would get married" Told him he might want to wait at least until the second date to get married! Ciaran says he would go to a restaurant to eat and then come home and snuggle on the couch.
Where they get all these ideas is really a mystery. The things they come up with on a daily basis continues to make me laugh and smile. Sure they can drive you totally nuts. All this snow has not been fun with school closings but then they come out with one of these stories and you tend to forget the craziness.
Tonight they are all sound asleep in a fort snuggled together. It's priceless. Calleigh so wanted to sleep in the fort but she isn't quite big enough! She was climbing in with them and cracking up. Her personality is adorable. She is really coming out of her shell. She loves to be wild (hmmmm wonder where she got that from!). She loves to be silly and laugh and she has three built in jokers in front of her face at all times. Calliegh wants to walk sooooo bad. I have said I would be thrilled if she walked by her second birthday. I think she will be ahead of schedule. She is constantly doing squats. Up and down, up and down. SHe is getting stronger every day. Just like her arms got stronger and stronger and she started crawling like a champ. She is progessing the same with her legs. I love walking into her room and finding her standing in her crib. Today, Cormac asked if he could check to see if she was awake from her nap. He opens her door and yells, "hey, guys, guess who's awake? And I mean REALLY awake...she is standing!" They all love to see her standing and trying to walk.
Sorry about the horrible dresser in the pics below
. I am in the process of refinishing both dressers but all the snow has slowed me down! I probably should have cleaned Calleigh face...but if you know her she is always messy!
That's Cormac cuddling under "fuzzy" his favorite blanket. He never sleeps without it.
They can't sleep without their ladybug light either. So it's in the fort with them.
