Candle Fart (A Stephen update)

Stephen says some of the strangest things. Once in a parking lot with my Dad and Sue he just looked up at me and said, "Candle Fart" then went back to being a wide eyed quiet little boy. Where does he get this stuff? If he doesn't feel good he puts his hand on his head and says, "woah".

I was keeping a list of all his words for a while, but I didn't keep up with it. It's strange to me the things he decides to learn, he's said "Daddy" and "Kitty" for ages but only vary rarely says "mom" and never "mommy". And we never refer to me as mom, just mommy... Course Brian calls me "Babe" so maybe Stephen will too? He sometimes calls Ethan "Eathy" but usually just "Baby". I wish he called me "mommy". Why should Brian and Ethan get all the credit? hehe Thank heavens he doesn't call anyone else anything, my poor heart would break!

That's funny Erin. I write all of Tori's funny saying down on the calendar and then at the end of the year I type them out and put them on the last page of her scrapbook for that year. It's so funny to go back and read some of the stuff she has said. Thanks for sharing Stephen's story with us!

Erin,
Not to worry about Stephen calling you mommy - from what I understand, most kids say daddy first - it's easier for them. Before you know it, you'll be wishing he'd stop saying Mommy, mommy - about a million times a day :)
Hopefully I'll get to Florida sometime next year so I can finally meet your beautiful boys.
Take Care
