I just love Dylan's use of language. I think that his love of reading probably has much to do with his mastery of words, but regardless, he frequently brings a smile to my face with the things he says. A few examples from this morning (which also demonstrate his sweet, agreeable nature!):

Having forgone chocolate chips in our pancakes for the duration of Lent, I've not yet replenished our pantry supply and so, when Meghan asked for them this morning, I had to tell her that we didn't have any. Dylan immediately chimed in with, "That's okay, Mommy, I've grown verrry fond of pancakes without chocolate chips!" :)

A little while later, as I was chatting with Darren on the phone while the children ate their breakfast, Dylan came to me and enthusiastically instructed, "Oh! Mommy! Be sure to tell Daddy about your best mistake ever because when you accidentally sprinkled nutmeg in the batter instead of cinnamon it made these pancakes taste delicious!"

And finally, referring to Caitlyn's chosen attire this morning, "Hey, the buttons on Cait's dress look vintage! They're beautiful!"

See what I mean? :)

The parts in bold are the ones I find particularly endearing. And we speak a lot in italics around here. Have you noticed? :)

I love my boy!

You'll be so happy you've recorded these cute things that he says.
What a sweet boy.

Does he get his disposition from his father- St. Darren? :)
(Not that you aren't a sweetheart yourself!)

What a sweet little guy - and so smart! My favorite was his use of the word "vintage". Too funny!
