A Heart of Stone


A person as fond of puns as I am should never be allowed to name a child "stone." It will never end, in case you're wondering.

Our sweet little boy is officially a toddler! He's been walking for two weeks, and is much faster, funnier, and more dangerous now. Formerly quite safe on the stairs, he is now trying everything big-kid style, and wants to try an upright descent instead of backwards on his tummy. He loves the slide at the park, and is starting to communicate via signs and words.

Stoney's words: His own language, which includes a lot of sounds like "ushe" and "she-she." Or maybe he's trying to say "jie-jie," as in "sister" in Mandarin. That would be appropriate.

His English words are: Dada, Mama, Dog (always followed by woof! woof!), No, Ai-Oo (thank you), and two-syllable sounds that sound like "Ih-Ee" for both Lindsay and Lucy.

I LOVE this picture! What a darling, darling boy. :)
I know I say it all the time - but I wish I lived there. I miss you guys so much! It was so fun to have that time with all your kids. Tell them I love and miss them.

Now I can feel like we're "in touch" even though we haven't seen you in many more years than I care to admit!

I made fun of blogging too, but I am glad you decided to do it so we can see you and your adorable family! (btw, drove by Taylorsville the other day...oh the memories!)

The 4th child always wants to do things the big kid way. Jennie only went down the stairs backward for about 2 days, wants to sit on the big toilet, and says large words and complex sentences like, "Doctor, don't touch my mom!"

I love that you're blogging, maybe I'll keep mine up better now.
