More conversations with Chase

We have some fun conversations in the car with Chase. He is very talkative, and doesn't like to be excluded from our conversations. He will often time say "what are you talking about, mama?" He definitely wants to contribute. Last night we were driving to dinner, and Abe and I were talking about something. From the back seat we hear a loud yawn, and Chase tells us that he is "awfully tiwed (tired)." We started laughing. Abe told that him that he was impressed with his use of an adverb :)


The other night we were getting ready to go feed the ducks. Chase was ready before we were, so he decided to unlock the door and run outside (we definitely need to install child locks on the doors pronto). Abe, kind of in a kidding way, told him to get his buns back inside or he was going to spank them. Chase's reply, "my buns have already been spanked!"

Yes, that is our TWO year olds response. We had a good laugh out of that one!


Chase refers to his cousins as "the girls." However, he doesn't pronounce it correctly. He pronounces it as "grills."


Chase has a long list of people who he likes to pray for before he goes to bed. The list includes his Uncle Ben Ben and the "the grills," Halloweena (Allie Blaising), Daddy, Mommy and the baby, all of his grandparents, Joshua (from the story of Joshua and the Battle of Jericho), and last night he asked to pray for the "bad guys" (whoever that may be). LOL!

Chase's Idea for a Name

On the way home last night, I asked Chase what we should name the baby (the baby is still nameless). He told me we should name the baby "Jesus."

I couldn't help but laugh!

7 Months Down, 2 to Go!

My due date is 2 months away! I am fully expecting to go past my due date, but I am hoping not too far past or I will have a scheduled c-section between 41 and 42 weeks. The baby is getting bigger and the kicks, punches, rolls, etc. are getting very strong and bordering on painful.

The baby is still nameless, but I think we may be getting closer. Abe and I are both getting excited about meeting our little guy. It will be nice to have a teeny tiny baby around the house again!

Some Recent Conversations with Chase

Here is a conversation that Chase had with Grandpa Green. Grandpa Green has 3 snakes. Chase likes to feed the snakes with his Grandpa. We went to the pet store to pick up the feeder mice which was the highlight for Chase. He loves the pet store. We went back to the house, and went to the garage to begin the whole feeding process (this is definitely not my thing and I am so glad that Chase gets to share these experiences with his Grandpa). Here is the conversation that Chase had with his Grandpa after the mice were placed in the cages:

Chase: "Why are the snakes eating the mice?"

Grandpa: "Because God made snakes to eat mice."

Chase: "I don't like God."

Gotta love how the little mind thinks!

Chase loves to eat peanut butter and brown sugar on bread. That is his favorite breakfast by far. He loves to help me in the kitchen as well, so when I am making his sandwich he asks to help. He loves to spread the peanut butter. This is how he asks:

"Mama can I peanut butter the bread?"


If you ask him what his favorite color is this will be his response:

"I wike welwow" (he pronounces "L" as a "W")

There are some more things that I will include in the post once I can remember them. I want to record as many of the cute things he says as possible. They are so easy to forget, but they are SO precious.
