I'm Scared

Elinore has developed a new habit.  She's constantly saying "I'm scared."  At first we took her seriously and asked why and helped her through it, but I think now she's caught on that it gets her lots of attention, and we hear it probably 20 times a day.  We hear it while we're sitting at the table, driving in the car or playing with toys.  Her attitude through the comment is no longer one of fear either, but more of a passing phrase. 

So we've started asking her of what, and not it's usually a pink monster.  We reminder her monsters aren't real, they're fake, and we move on.

You Are More Than You Know

I just finished this book. It was a good read, and I think for the right person incredibly helpful and insightful.I personally don't feel like I live my life in fear or controlled by fear too often, occasionally yes, but not regularly.  (Maybe I'm in denial?!)  This books focused on overcoming fear with faith, which is an excellent message."At this juncture of my life I'm not convinced normal is an obtainable or even desirable goal, but embracing our God-given uniqueness is. In fact, it's an adventure that leads us to embracing that we are more than we know because the Lord is greater - far greater - than we can ever imagine." -Patsy Clairmont

Uh oh!

Ruth has started saying Uh Oh now!  She started it at the sitter's yesterday and continued through the evening!  I'm hoping it's the gateway to more words for her!  Currently her vocabulary is lots of sounds, mom and uh oh.

Do you have allergies?

Every time someone has sneezed over the weekend, Elinore asks "do you have allergies?"

Clearly she's learned about allergy season somewhere and is concerned about others and their allergies now.

It's cute.
