I have always said that my daughter seems like an old soul. We were watching old home videos about a month back. She was not even two in one of them. On the video, I asked her, "Tatoe (that was her nickname back then), how old are you?" She looked at the camera and said, "Tatoe is 22 months." I remember thinking since she was very young that she is absolutely brilliant. I love to record the things my kids say in a notebook I have. Today I just have to share:
This morning when she got up, we were getting around to go to Cubbies. I asked her if she remembered her verse. She began, "Samantha! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord." It took a second to realize that she had no clue and mistook Samantha for Hosanna. Then before I could correct her, she looked at me with a puzzled look and asked, "Is she someone who came before us?" I almost died laughing.
On the way home from the park today, I asked the kids if they had a fun day. They told me that they did and I told them that I was happy and was hoping to give them that. Kaitlyn spoke up and said, "Yeah, it was much better than Uncle Huey's wedding because that was a tad bit on the boring side!"
This afternoon, she was in the bathroom with the dog. I was spying on her. She grabbed the dogs face and said, "Macy you are so beautiful. I hope you die soon though so we can get a different dog."
She has most recently informed us that her name is no longer Kaitlyn. Her name is now Kate and for short we can call her Princess.
Oh baby girl, you keep Mommy smiling. You are growing up so fast and I can't believe in just two short months you will be a whole hand.
