Overheard At My House

Alexis has been quite amusing here lately. I thought I would share a few of our funny stories.

One night last week, Alexis and I were laying in my bed and I was reading her bedtime stories to her. Ever since she was a baby, she has always held her own, or held onto our ears when she was tired. She doesn't do it all the time anymore, but the other night she was. She was laying on my right side and she would get my right ear first and then reach under my neck and get my left ear. She did this several times. This is how the conversation went:

Alexis: Mom, will you switch sides with me please?

Me: Sure honey, how come?

Alexis: I like the ear on the other side better!

After I collected myself from laughing so hard,  I switched sides with her and she snuggled up with her baby in the crook of her arm, holding my ear with her other hand and was soon fast asleep.

Last night we were in St. Louis staying at Ross' sister Meredith's house. The 4 of us (Me, Ross, Alexis & Isabel) were in our car and Ross' parents and Meredith were in Meredith's car. We were headed back to Meredith's apartment to have some cake and ice cream. Alexis had been counting us and she kept saying there were only 3 in our car. Finally we convinced her there were 4 in our car and 3 in the other car.

Ross: How many people are in our car?

Alexis: 4

Ross: And how many are in Aunt Merfy's car?

Alexis: 3

Ross: So how many does 4 + 3 add up to?

Alexis: ICE CREAM!!

Once again, we died laughing! I'm amazed at some of the things she can come up with.
