Quick Quotes

I think it's safe to say two things as a result of these first two quick quotes: 1) Josie has been learning about units of measurement at school. 2) The girl is obsessed with her Tia.

Josie, last night after eating an adult portion of the pork tenderloin that Uncle Robert and cousins Morgan and Katrina brought over for dinner: "I love pork! I ate two whole gallons I think!"

Josie, last night at bedtime, "Mommy...I love you one hundred billion sixty hundred and I love Tia infinity seven."

And in case you were wondering her thoughts on big sisterhood...

When asked what her favorite thing was about being a big sister by the barista in our local neighborhood coffee shop, Josie answered: "The best thing is my big sister t-shirt!"  When asked if there's anything that's not fun about being a big sister, she replied "Uhhhh...the diapers and the boo-boo milk!"

And, here's your "Awwww, how sweet is that?" quote of the day...

Whenever Roly is a little fussy and needs some attention (i.e. when she's waking up from a nap or not thrilled with her carseat), Josie rushes to her side and always says some version of this same thing:  "Oh, don't worry Roly. It's okay. Your big sister is here."  To hear these words from her little mouth just about melts me!  Between that and the way I catch her just sitting and staring at Beatrice, watching her sleep and gently rubbing her hair or cheek...well, those are the moments I always daydreamed about that are now a reality.

She's not the first big sister who loved the shirt that came along with the deal!
