Fun with Ellie

Kenzie's favorite activity lately is to take a running start at Ellie while she is lying* on her playmat on the floor and yell in a somewhat scary voice, "ELLIE BELLIE WHAT'S THE MATTER?"

I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure the thing that is the matter is that someone is yelling and stomping toward her small and floppy head.

I'm not sure where Kenzie got this crazy-loud "I've been smoking in a gravel pit and I swallowed some of the gravel too" voice, but she seems to think it's the voice to use with Ellie, frequently using is to "comfort" Ellie in the car, while she's swinging, or just to offer her a bit of loving sisterly advice.

Kenzie also enjoys growling at Hannah, among other amusing past times. Sisters are the best.

*I totally had to look up lying vs. laying. I can never remember how to use them.

My son Zac would lick my twins when they were little babies. (In his defense, he was only 2!) I never thought that as a mother I would ever have to say "stop licking the baby!" But I have...many, many times.

I'm laughing so hard right now, I can bearly type! Or is it barely?

Ohhhhhh, so cute and funny!

And I only learned how to use lying vs. laying properly just last year. :)
