Kids Say the Cutest Things....

...and sometimes it would be great if they couldn't talk, at all!

For example, the other day I was sitting on the ground in my room doing my hair and make-up in front of the mirror. I had on jeans and a snug-fitting layering shirt that I was going to wear under a sweater. I hadn't put my sweater on yet b/c I get too hot drying my hair with 3 layers on.

So, anyway Ella was sitting beside talking to me about some of her cousins that are going to have a new baby in their family. Then she says "I think we're going to have a baby soon!"

Me: "Really, why do you say that?"
Ella: "Because your tummy is getting big and I think there is a baby in there."

OK, for the record - nope - no baby in there. Apparently just too many mashed potatoes, gravy and rolls. Honestly, the funny thing is that I was just saying to Jeramy the day before that I was feeling extra "squishy" and felt like I needed to reign things in a bit. He, being the sweet and smart husband he is, denied any existence of any "more of me" and was able to, temporarily, allay my fears. So, for Ella to make that comment the next day just fueled my anxiety about the situation.

Really, the whole thing is pretty funny. I can't blame her for her calling it like she sees it. Plus, she really, really wants a baby sister so who can blame her for seeing my mid-section overhang as a sign of hope?

Time to hit the gym......

Yesterday I was just thinking how trim you are looking these days! I don't see any extra Tamara. :) Ella's so funny. Kinsley keeps telling me I've eaten too much dinner. She's catching on to the fact that there is a baby involved. I think another Cooper-Leavitt baby would be great...

I think you look GREAT!!! When Andrew and Hudson came to meet Grant in the hospital, Andrew came up to me, looked at my stomach and announced that there must be TWO babies, (& they better get the other one out) because my tummy was still big! That was ok, but when he then turned to my Mom, who is heavier these days because of her health, and asked her if she had a baby in her belly... not so good, BUT thankfully it was my Mom and not the nurse or someone we didn't know!

haha! That's hilarious and I'm sure that Ella said it because she wants a baby sister not because you look any bigger! You look great!!!
