Kid Sayings

This post is about my funny boy Caedmon. I thought I would write some of the funny things he has done and said lately. A true baby blog post. :-)

Funny words he says that I love:

"Bible burfes"-Bible verses





Funny things he has done recently:

When Caedmon is scared, he says he is "scary." Love it! He nods emphatically while on the phone and calls Jason a "silly boy." When he has to go potty, he brings whatever toys and books he's attached to at the time, and dumps them in the sink, out of Jonas' reach, for safekeeping while he does his business. Quite a shrewd lil lad.

It is hilarious to watch your kids imitate you verbatim, if also quite sobering! Caedmon has taken to playing in the sink for the sole purpose of spitting exactly like Dad does after he brushes his teeth. Mimicking me when we come inside the house, he orders Jonas, "hat, shoes, and jacket, Jonath." He also spanks his monkey and moose for getting out of bed, forgives them, and gives them another chance.

Jonas is also picking up life. I caught him dipping his cornbread into his water, as he's seen me eat my cornbread in milk with a spoon. He also has taken to grunting when he picks something up that he thinks is supposed to be heavy even if it is not. The other day he had a cheese stick in both hands, I asked him to share one with Caedmon. You can guess-he gave Caedmon the slobbery, bite-marks, drooping one and kept the whole one for himself. Way to share, Short Stack!

I am very blessed, though. I love my job of introducing them to Jesus. Caedmon remembers to pray for people I had long since forgotten about. And he is a sponge for Bible verses and stories. Although he is obsessed with the snake in the garden of Eden-hmmm. In talking about what sounds the letters make lately, Caedmon associates the letters with the ABC Bible verses we covered awhile back. YES! It is music to my ears to hear his sing-songy recitation of Psalm 23 or 34 to Jonas and his trucks. To hear him singing "God is so good" loudly at the grocery store. I couldn't be prouder! Here is cuddling with Dad.

Jonas is finally lengthening out and growing about a micro-millimeter taller!
That's it. I can't imagine how badly I will boast when I'm a grandma!


  1. As I read the post, I found myself saying all of those words just like I know Caedmon does. And short stack, is that a nickname....I love it.
    How is the church hunting going?
    Another game of pinochle Thursday, so know you will be missed and I am sure mentioned (if your ears are burning Thurs night, that is why)

  2. Well...
    We ALL know that Jonas will take his toys and hide them where he can't find them if they aren't safely stowed in the sink where they can get smothered with yucky toothpaste gunk and stray hair. That is great!! Makes me laugh because I can picture him doing this act in all seriousness.
    Now Beth, you did not delineate WHICH cheese stick must be shared...survival of the fittest here. He knew which one provided more caloric intake, and as the smaller of the two, CLEARLY, he needed more cheese.
    They are still very cute kiddos; guess that didn't change since last week, imagine that. Tell Caedmon I am pumped to hear his ABCs and/or ABC verses...and he SINGS?!?! Cool beans.

  3. You're such a funny sister. And you can enthuse all you want about your own kids - we love it. Because that's the kind of person you are - ready to be enthusiastic for everyone and help us get a bit more joy out of life. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Great post! I hope you have boring weeks more often, if this is the result!
