another monday

We survived another hot Arkansas spring day. I don't really know the temp today (my dad does I'm sure from the weather channel news...) but it was hot. Walking into Target, Logan said, "Can we hurry inside? I don't like being out here in this hot!" He really doesn't like to be out in the heat at all. He and Ri played outside for a little while and came in all red and sweaty.

Emmie is really putting sentences together. This morning she had been out on the back porch with her blanket (okay, she's attached to hers as well) and left it there. When she looked out the window a while later she let out a scream and ran to the back door - I said "what's wrong, Em?" and she emphatically replied "I want my ni-night!" She also asks for my cell phone all the time "hone? Hone?" and still compulsively brings me my shoes if I'm barefoot "he-ya-go, mom, toe."

We've started reading The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe at night with the kids - they love it. We read George McDonald's The Golden Key and had just finished it, needed something new and thought they might be old enough...they love it. Logan was telling one of his friends about it at church on Sunday, referencing the story and saying "what's that land called, mom? Yeah, Narnia!" They are soaking it up.

Riley dressed Emmie today - first time. Mostly by herself. Was very proud of herself. Emmie cooperated with her pretty well. Mostly. Emmie has realized that Riley can be very useful - Ri likes to share food, read stories, and play "wosy" (Ring around the Rosy) and while sometimes Riley picks her up when Emmie doesn't want that, Riley is generally fun. Emmie still has her guard up when Logan trots by - probably because a lot of times he's after something she has (hoping to switch some toy he doesn't want for one he wants that she has, a trick that worked when she was about six months old but hasn't worked for quite some time - he just still tries though). She loves him though, and loves to rub his head (he has a buzz cut right now.)

Logan's stoked for his birthday to come. Every day he's counting down till he can be four. I know it's crazy, but I'm sad to lose my three-year-old buddy. He looks so big already - he seems like he's just gone through one of those growing jumps where he looks really different. I'm glad we'll get to see all the g-parents this summer and lots of other family too. It's cliche-ish, but the kids are changing before my eyes. I hate that we don't get to share it with our families! They are so precious, and I enjoy them so much. We'll enjoy having them around all of you we'll be seeing this summer.
