Kids are So Honest

Squishy is 15 months today and we didn't have much to do so we went to the parks.

Shortly after we got there another mama showed up with a little guy who was probably about 3 and another boy who was probably a few months younger than Squishy.

Squishy's in a really friendly phase and she likes to say "HI!" and wave to everyone.

We were playing near the smaller kid structure and the 3 year old came over, I'll call him 3, and Squishy said Hi!

3 played around us for awhile and then had his mama put him in a swing next to his brother and she was pushing both the kids. 

This was their conversation:
3: Last push mama.  I want to go play with that beautiful baby over there. (I swear he said that).
Mom: Okay.
3:  She's a nice baby.  She said Hi to me.
3 (Looking at his baby brother):  He's not a nice baby!
Mom (trying not to laugh): Why do you say that?
3: Because he BITES!

The mom was trying so hard not to laugh and so was I.  It was pretty priceless.

Happy 15 months Squishy!  Three year old boys think you're nice and beautiful :)

For the record: I debated as to whether or not I wanted to make this post.  I hemmed I hawed, but ultimately I decided I wanted to.  If only so that those close to me and who read this know why I'm a little preoccupied over the next few weeks or months (hopefully weeks).  Friends and family are not allowed to ask how this is coming along.  I'll announce when I see fit :)

We are officially trying for #2.

We decided to start about a week ago, just in time for this month.  We'll try for my July-September cycles and if it doesn't happen then we will wait until January.  Mainly because it's crazy hot here in the summer and I have no desire to be hugely pregnant in the summer and also we're planning around a family vacation that takes place in July.
