The days of Elijah

Yes, that's a title of a song. But Elijah is being so cute that I just had to make time to write about him.

Yesterday was Father's Day, and the children all got up early to make breakfast and decorate the living room. When they were ready for Bob to get up, they gathered at our bedroom door and sang "The Little Birdie" song, (which goes to the tune of Hush Little Baby)

A little birdie with a yellow bill
Hopped up on my windowsill
He cocked his eye and said
"You are a little sleepy head"
He flapped his wings
And away he flew, saying
"You'll be late for Sunday School"

This morning Elijah came to our door and called, "Daddy, Daddy, Daddy!" I saw that Bob wasn't ready to speak, so I asked what he wanted. "Daddy!" Bob then answered, and Elijah perkily replied, "I'm a bird!" I laughed all the way to breakfast.

Also, as shared on Facebook, the other day we were talking about wasps, trying to reach an agreement on what was the proper name of the particular bug flying around. Elijah firmly decided what it was - a "dirt nauberd". :-D

He is still mostly sunny in disposition, but occasionally gets upset. This usually results in loud whining more than actual tears. When I try to hush him, he will look up at me and say, "I'm crying!" and go right back to his boo-hoo sound.

Did you notice that everything he says ends with an exclamation point? It's true. He's very confident in himself.

Hope you enjoyed.
