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!”
While trying to fall asleep by himself….“MOM! I need some help snuggling!”
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.
Thank you so much for writing it down honey. Love you.
