The Best Compliment:

Last night, during quiet time while Kylie was fast asleep in bed and Justin was off at a meeting, Macy and I sat at the kitchen table as I worked on my Cherry Quilt. Macy was eager to help and to hold the squares and regularly made suggestions as to which square should go where. I tried to do as she suggested whenever possible. She talked constantly (I mean, never stopping to breath) about how much fun this was and how it was so pretty. After I finished sewing a row she exclaimed "Oh Mommy! That is soooo pretty. You sew it so nice. You are such a good Mommy!" I wish you could have heard her voice when she said it but it was so cute, I wanted to die. Plus, what could be a better compliment than my two year old tell me I am a good Mommy?

And this morning I walked in to the living room to check on the girls to hear Macy singing, at the top of her lungs, "Kylie pooped her diaper! She is stinky! Mommy has to change her because Kylie no use the potty like a big girl! Kylie is poopy!" This was all in a random tune that she decided to make up as she went, I swear, she is going to write music when she grows up. She is a genius :)

And Kylie finally has her second tooth. And yes, it is the matching molar to the one she already has. Those bottom two teeth are close to popping through and we can't wait!
