I have officially begun journaling my blog! See Hannah's blog to see what link will take you to the actual site...it's the neatest thing and super easy! Anyhow, since I've begun doing this,...I've decided I need to do better about writing out some of the things Shepherd says and some of the quirky differences in Shepherd and Rauly. SO....here goes!
We were at Micheals yesterday and the entire store was decorated for Fall and Halloween...there were these huge mummies standing in the aisles and Shepherd asked me what they were. I told him that they were "mummies" and they looked scary but weren't actually real. He then turned to look at the "mummies" and with the most serious and concerned expression, he turned and said to me "NO,...NO mommy!!...that's not a "mommy"...it's a "daddy"!". He was very confused!
Chad's mom (Linda) shared a story with me. She said that one night while they had Shep over and were getting ready for dinner, Shep had seen one of the Wendy's commercials...the theme "Where's the beef?" was said several times and apparently Shepherd heard it. Linda happened to have cooked hamburgers for dinner that night and had Shepherd's buns sitting on his plate but hadn't yet put the meat on. He looked to her and said "Hey! Where's the beef?!"...they of course cracked up!
A few days ago, Shepherd and Rauly were over at Dennis and Linda's house and Dennis was under their house fixing the floor in their bathroom. They had to move their toilet (don't ask...) and so the pipe that runs from the toilet to underneath the house was exposed and Shep could hear Dennis talking to him but couldn't figure out where his voice was coming from. Linda tried to explain that Peepaw was under the house and that his voice was coming through the pipe, but Shepherd immediately walked over to the toilet, lifted the lid and yelled for Peepaw to "get outa' there!". lol!!!
Differences in the kiddo's:
The poem "Jack sprat could eat no fat, his wife could eat no lean...so between them both you see, they picked the platter clean." totally applies to my kids! It's really kind of weird! If I fix pizza, Shepherd will eat the crust, Rauly will eat the pepperoni. If we eat chicken and french fries,...Shepherd eats the chicken, Rauly eats the french fries. If I fix a fruit salad,...Shepherd picks the bananas and grapes out, Rauly will eat the apples and strawberries. Seriousely - they always eat just the oppossite of what the other one is eating!!
Shepherd talks 90 to nothin' ALL DAY LONG! Rauly is the quietest child I've ever seen...unless of course she's throwing a fit - then her screams are blood curdling. Seriousely though, many people have commented that Rauly is extremely quiet...normally it's the girl who's the talker.
Rauly is my introverted child - Shepherd is my extroverted child. Wonder what our third will be like?!
