This is my life lately. Natalie wants me to hold her all the time and if I don't she drives me crazy doing things like this. Something's bothering her and my best guess is teething. Yes, that is a barf covered carseat cover. She drank too much milk and then had a coughing spasm and out it came.

"Hold-y!"


As for Jans-Man: No doubt about it, my son loves trains. Here's how I know:
-After we have put him to bed at night he often talks to himself and calls out things like, "All aboard!"
-He talks about Santa and his traindeer
-Last Sunday he saw "train tracks" on the ceiling of the church
-He said to me today, "There's my golden engine I love to chug!"
-He uses words like "coupled properly," "buffers," "down the line," "narrow gauge controller," etc.
-His new favorite movie is Polar Express
-He will make this high pitched train whistle sound for like 10 minutes straight when he's playing...it's cute, but it's also like nails on a chalkboard
-He can't wait to get Percy, Molly, and Henry for Christmas (maybe)

I totally can relate to your life with little Natalie! You know that I have the same problem. Sofie is SO clingy to me (especially in Utah). Jansen is SO cute with his trains. I love it.

Oh how I miss you! I can't believe you've been delayed so much! Evie will love playing with Jansy Pants (if we can get you here!) because she is a big choo choo fan!
