Jonah replied, "Daddy, you're my best friend."

It got cold in the house today so I put on a sweater from the coat closet. When Ava saw me come back to sit down she touched my arm and said, "Cool, Mom."

Tonight Jon's uncle Ernie gave Jonah a model of a Gullwing Mercedes--Jonah was so excited he is sleeping with it!
Jonah: Hey, Mom! You should ride in my new Mercedes!
Elisabeth: But I can't fit in there, Joe.
Jonah: Yeah, it would be squishy! (giggle, then...) You would very break it. And I would be sad cuz Ernie gave me this car cuz he loves me.
