Lily-isms Volume Six

(Lily & Andrew singing Twinkle Twinkle)
Lily: Twinkle, twinkle, little star, how I wonder what you are, up above the world so high, like a diamond in the sky, etc.
Andrew: Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, etc.

Daddy: Would you like to go to Nikki's (meaning Nikki's Swirl Shop for frozen yogurt)?
Lily: Yes!!!!!!! We can see Mickey Mouse!? At his house!?
Daddy: No, honey. Nikki's not Mickey's. Only you could take the "If you give a mouse a cookie" principle THAT far!

I don't like his hypothesis!

(When Andrew attempted to put the wooden train's smokestack on the caboose instead of the engine)
Lily: No, no, no! That doesn't go there.
Mommy: it's ok, Lily. He can play with it however he wants.
Lily: but thats not where it goes!!! (said with tears, wailing and gnashing of teeth)
Mommy: Andrew is like Buddy from Dinosaur Train. He has a theory that the smokestack will fit on the caboose. Now he has to test it by experimenting--by trying to put the smokestack on the caboose. That's how he will learn it doesn't go there.
Lily: ::sniff:: I don't like his hypothesis!

And they say children learn nothing from tv.

Welcome Baby Kelton!***

As of last week, Taevin has been bringing his much-awaited baby brother to play with us during our days. We were a little worried how a one-month old would affect our schedule, but he has folded himself in with us just fine.

The other babies are also very protective of and attentive to him. This morning, while sanitizing a spare pacifier for Kelton...
Taevin: (points at Kelton and looks expectantly at me) Crying!!
Me: Yes. He wants his pacifier. But Daddy forgot it this morning. We're getting his spare though, it's alright.
Taevin: (points at Kelton and looks angrily at me) CRYING!!
Me: I know, darling. I'm working on it.
Lily: Uncle Chris forgot it, Taevin! I call him and tell him to bring it. (she pulls her imaginary cell phone from her imaginary pocket, dials, and places it to her ear) Hello? Uncle Chris? Don't ever ever ever ever forget Kelton's pacifier again! He needs it. Bye bye! (she turns to me) I call Uncle Chris. I fix it.

Lilyisms, Volume 5-ish***

Mommy: you are a small, fickle child.
Lily: no, Mommy, I Lily Vienne Lemmons!

Noni: Are you a ratfink?
Lily: No.
Noni: Are you a dormouse?
Lily: No.
Noni: Are you a raccoon?
Lily: No.
Noni: Are you a pirate?
Lily: Yes! A pirate!

(While watching Peter Pan)
Lily: Captain Hook is playing the piano!...with his umbrella!!

(Later on, while the pirates are capturing Wendy & the Lost Boys)
Lily: (folds her little hands, bows her little head) Thank you God for Captain Hook. Amen!

***Some catching up...

Em has tried to post a few things, but had some issues with her phone, the next couple of post should have gone out a while back but never did due to technical difficulties. These post should be be marked with a "***" at the end of the title.

Tea Party!***

Things I Never Thought I'd Say, Volume 1***

"Lily! Stop tickling Andrew's eyeball!"

Lily and the New Sonic

Lily and Daddy took an opportunity on Saturday to test out the new playground at the nearby Sonic. Lily quite enjoyed herself.
