After along hiatus

How quickly time has flown by, since I was here last, Eli is two and a half years old, he has such a vibrant personality. He's highly conversant, intelligent, has a great sense of humor, painfully polite and just the sunshine in our lives, he truly is our pride and joy!

I'd like to be back on here to record the little things that happen so that we can look back and remember this time... I'd also like to jot down the things the little man says that I'd like to remember for always...

Last night in bed, I wasn't sure what he was scrambling around and was starting to get impatient because it was past bedtime and it's a school day the next day and I tell him to hurry up and lay down and he goes "hold on mummy, I'm building a castle", sure enough, he barricaded himself with every pillow and lay his pillow pet dragon on the very top of the pile as the guardian of the castle.

Then there was the Sunday before at church as we said the Lord's Prayer, Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as is in heaven, give us this day our daily bread.....

As clear as a bell, a little voice says "Jesus, I want my bread with hotdog and ketchup and some macaroni please"

It was long after the prayer ended before the people around us stopped laughing.

I love the child like innocence and will make an effort to get it jotted down here (no more excuses since I can do it straight from he iPhone)
