This happened all the way back on December 2! Noah made it to the top of the rope at gymnastics on only his second try. He was determined to get a prize, a gatorade, but he kept calling it a gator. We are so proud of him.

Sometimes I just get ignored by your books. – Ezra (Took me a few days and him using ignored wrong a few more times to figure out he was trying to say inspired)
Me: what does mommy want for Christmas?
Noah: well she seems to like laundry. So maybe more laundry?
Ezra, oh what happened?

We were getting in the car and Noah had forgotten something.
Me “where did you leave it?”
Him “just look everywhere.”
Ezra, “I have the funniest joke ever. Knock knock.”
Us, “Who’s there?”
Us, “Knock who?”
Ezra, “Aren’t you glad I have ears?” Followed by hysterical laughter.
Ezra, “it just gets me into trouble.”
Me, “your mustache?” (He was sporting one made of ticky tac)
Ezra, “no, my mind! I just think and think.”
Ezra found the classical station on the radio. “Hey guys listen, you’re missing a princess song.”
Ezra excitedly, “Noah, you know where chocolate chips come from!”
Noah answering even though it was not a question, “Chocolate and chips!”
Ezra, “No, they come from oreos.”
The boys brought home art from Presidents’ Day and we were discussing.

Me, “Gilbert, in a hospital.”
N, “You don’t get born in a hospital!!!!”
Me (trying not to laugh), “Where do you get born?”
E, “Africa!” Then continues to go on and on about all the animals Abby likes (think giraffes and lions). “There are lions in Africa, she should have just come and seen us there.”
Matt: did some one set the alarm to go off?

“Make way for THE EZRA!” – Ezra.
