Lia is 19 months and continues to be adorable. She says "ma" for mommy, "da" for daddy, "kanka" for blanket "amma" and "ampa" for grandma and grandpa, "dee-dee-dee" for Dora, and "agh-agh-agh" for SpongeBob, and she says uh-oh, baby, and bye-bye. When she wants me to play Wheels on the Bus with her she puts her finger to her lips and says sh-sh-sh. She is getting the hang of being in nursery, and although she is shy about singing songs in class (and I know because I do music time there every Sunday) she often wants to sing with me at home. A few weeks ago we had pizza for dinner and someone left a slice on the couch. I asked, "Who left pizza on the couch?" and after three "not me"s, Lia raised her hand. No way is she being left out. She's so sweet, I could just eat her up!

Lance has been asking some interesting questions lately. One night he asked me who I thought he should marry. I told him he would meet a lot of girls before he was ready to get married. Then he said, "Yeah but what girl should I marry?" The rest of the conversation went like this: Me: You should marry someone that goes to church and keeps the commandments. Lance: Like M____? Me: And someone who wants to get married in the temple. Lance: Yeah, like M____? So it looks like he's pretty set on marrying M____ in about 14 or 15 years. And I will say that I approve of that choice. :) Lance continues to do well in school. Everything comes easy for him-reading, math, art, music. He says he wants to be an author and illustrator someday and I'm sure he can.
I really find it a great honor to be the mother of these wonderful children. I enjoy where they are now and look forward to what they will become.
