My sugary sweet boy

My sister in law and I took the kids to Thatcher to visit my mom and grandparents this week. While there, Cohen and I slept in the same room; he in a crib and me on a twin bed. About 3 am I heard him whispering, "Mommy.... Mommy....." and then a little more desperately, "Mommy..... Mommy...." He was soaked from chest to knees with the fullest diaper I've ever seen. As I took him out of the crib he whispered, "Sorry Mommy".
Melted my heart.
He said it again as I changed him into dry clothes, "Sorry Mommy". I snuggled him for a minute in that twin bed but quickly knew that wasn't condusive to sleeping so I pulled out the trundle for me and he slept on the twin alone. I couldn't believe how quickly he went back to sleep and even slept in an hour later than usual!
He also says, "Bless you, Mommy" when I sneeze.
And if offered food, he says "No, danchoo".
(He's not eating much food right now as he has put himself on a mostly liquid and candy diet.)

Oh that is so sweet!! I can't wait for Finn to actually talk—especially nice, darling words like that. Right now he just screams at me and bangs on things. :)

Ah, the joys of a toddler. Trey says "Tank you, mama" after I do anything for him like give him a drink or wipe his bottom or help him on the potty. It's truly sweet. As for the liquid diet, we are there as well. I have to change his sheets every morning. Have a fun trip.

How cute!! I love hearing those words from my little guys mouth. I just wish I'd hear them after he does the horrible things instead of just after little things he doesn't really need to be sorry about.
