Elijah is Three!!

Elijah is growing up before our very eyes. He turned three on January 27th. His verbal development is amazing. Here's some of my favorite quotes from this past week.

"The poop is hiding" - While sitting on the toilet during our first attempt at potty training.
"You're a sweet boy" - to Hannah when he was trying to convince her to do something.
"Your burgers (boogers) are hiding" - While cuddled up in my lap during reading time. He was holding my nose at the time, tightly I might add.
"Fire" - when Clara's friends Molly and Caroline took away the candle lighter from him (scary actually)
"I'll be a sweet boy and will not knock over the trash can" - after being sent to time out for knocking over the trash can. What remorse!!
"E-L-I-J-A-H, mommy is my name" - While trying to sing the song I sing to him. The lyrics are actually "E-L-I-J-A-H, Elijah is my name. I am three 1-2-3".
"I'm too busy" - when we ask him to do something. How many times has he heard that before?

wow, it is crazy he is already 3! we only have two more months until that's us. this age is so fun and they say the most hilarious things!
oh, and our camera is just a Canon Powershot A550. by no means a super expensive camera. i just take a whole bunch of photos and then you end up with a few really good ones. i hear that even if you take a few steps up in models of the canon powershot, they are supposed to be really good!

So cute! I love that he said that to Hannah; that is a classic.
