The always quotable children:
2/2: Abigail informed me that “When Daddy fixes a computer, he gets pennies.”
2/4/12: Walter: “Are you and American or are you from Minnesota?”
Abigail: “No, I’m from God.”
2/17: Walter: “Everyone will die eventually, except for robots.”
2/23: During Walter’s bedtime prayers: “…and please make donuts rain from the sky…”
2/29: While trying out our new piano, Walter asked, “How are we going to take this to lessons?”
3/18: Walter was reciting his memory verse from Sunday school: “The Word of God is living and powerful, sharper than any two-edged light saber.”
4/4: When I put Abigail to bed she said, “I love you…as much as Grandpa.”
In February, Walter got his first pair of glasses! We discovered he is far sighted in his left eye. When he got them, he declared that everything looked “beautifuler!”
Also in February, I started working for Mr. Guru’s company, ACoupleofGurus, doing database queries just a few hours a week. Abigail has enjoyed coming to the office with me. Walter also likes to come too, when he gets a chance.
Walter’s time in Kindergarten has firmly demonstrated his ability to quickly memorize things. We even have this video of him singing (pretty much) all 50 states in alphabetical order!
Abigail also had a big milestone, but less fun. On Good Friday, April 6th, she broke her arm! She was trying to jump off the bed onto Daddy (who was unaware of her plans!), but crashed to the floor and landed on her elbow. She was very brave and has handled it well. She wore a cast-like splint with her pretty Easter dress, then was upgraded to a removable splint because it’s healing so fast. Just in time for our big trip to Mexico!
