Before I forget, here are a few of my favorite Raines phrases from the last several months. Sadly, he’s already grown out of some of them (like “slowy motion“). Sob.
On his older Hot Wheels cars…..
[disgustedly] ”They go slowy motion.”
On trying to carry something large…. “It’s too big for me. I want bigger hands.”
During his first eye exam, as the nurse was pointing to a small picture of a hand…..”Hand” Raines intoned. ”Wuf BONES.”
While playing around with clay: ”Mom! I’m looking really hard for you Mom! I made you a heart, Mom! That means I love you!”
While wrestling with his brother: [uncontrollable giggling] ”We are puttin’ slobber on each othver and makin’ us waugh!”
While biking with Mike: ”I’m outta power. Gotta recharge.”
On trying to describe his lego tower. The word he’s looking for is middle….
“I thought red was on the bottom…but it was kinda on top.”
[thinks some more]
“White on top, red on taller top, blue on super tall top!”
After falling and smashing his head… ”the earf shook!”
After Pax fell off the bed…..“Whoa, Mom! He was wike a bird!”
On describing the motion of a swing: “This moves back and forwith!”
On anything that causes him to wait – we hear this one several times a day…. “It’s taking fur a WONG TIME!”
While trying to remember where he had left his green ball… “Let me use my big stwrong brain!”
And yesterday….“Mom! My heart is FULL of SUPER-HEROS!!!”
Yes it is, Baby.
This kid is a trip. I seriously couldn’t love him more.
