Life with Reagan

I forgot to include Zach in my last update, so let me slip in a quick one... work and working on the house pretty much occupies alllllllll his time. He starts a new job at SF next week, he's looking forward to that. I don't know if this is a testament to our oneness or a new low but we definitely ran into each other in the McDonald's drive thru this morning. Judgment free zone in this case then?


We had our first big snow of the season this past week. Jeez, about time! Reagan and Petey l.o.v.e. playing it... but Reagan might equally love getting the hot chocolate afterwards.

After spending a week at the lake with Grandpa Meiner he developed the habit of saying "oh dear" when something goes wrong. He says this like 15 times a day.

Today, he came up to me and said "You know what my favorite part about you is?" ... "sometimes you let me have food."

Last week was an eventful week at preschool. One of the days they had a field trip where they went bowling and another day was "pancake & pajama's day" (see picture below.)

Sometimes the words he uses makes me do a double take at who I'm talking to. He woke me up last night and said "may I have a refreshment please?" And the other day, we were having dinner with Luba and he asked her "is your car electric or gasoline?"

His favorite books in the entire world are his Busy Town books. If you've ever read them then you know why we refer to them as the long-busy-towns. They've taught him a lot of things. 
A. what hobos are 
B. that lawyer's settle arguments. So now if someone disagrees about something with him he threatens that he's going to get his lawyer. 

Petey finally got a tag, watching it being made seriously made Reagan's morning. He is such a machine/tool man. 

If you ask him if he's going to be a brother he'll tell you I'm "president" not fat.

The biggest number he knows is "69" so he's constantly saying things like "I love you 69 miles" or "I am going to eat 69 jalapeƱo cheetohs."

I asked Reagan a few questions about me:

1What is something Mommy always says to you?
 to listen
2What makes Mommy happy? when 
I listen

3What makes Mommy sad?
 when I don’t listen
How does Mommy make you laugh? "What’s there on your shirt?" game ( he means when you trick someone to look down then then tap their nose)

How old is Mommy?

6How tall is Mommy? 
50 inches
What is Mommy's favorite thing to do? 
to play with me
What does Mommy do when you're not around?
 clean the house and make dinner
What is Mommy's favorite food?
What makes you proud of Mommy? When she parks straight, daddy too (he thinks I am totally awesome if I pull straight through a parking spot when there's not a car parked in front of me)
1 If Mommy were a cartoon character, who would she be?
 Belle from Beauty and the Beast
What do you and Mommy do together? 
How are you and Mommy the same?
 we both have butts and same skin (he's become very observant of people's skin colors)
How are you and Mommy different? 
I have a peepee and you don’t
How do you know Mommy loves you? Because Jesus made me for you

Wade loves Busy Town books--or Richard Scarry books. We refer to them as doctor's office books. They will last through a whole visit to the dr. There is a game too!
