Going D"owww"N and Ca-Ca-Ya answers....

I forget how quick Reid is. He is lightning quick. And things happen before I even have a chance to react....like this.
The poor kid! I was putting shish-ka-bobs together for dinner at the counter and Reid was on the other side of the counter. He climbed up in the kitchen chair to sit and I praised him for sitting. Within 0.34 seconds, he was up on his feet. I reacted and said, "No, Reid. Sit down please." Before I could get around the counter to take him off the chair, (he thought this was funny...because Mama doesn't run!) and jolted himself forward which tipped the chair OVER onto the floor. His forehead hit the bar stool that was in front of the chair at the counter.
And this little shiner is what he has to show for his hard fall. I really thought an ER trip was going to be in our future tonight....but the swelling seemed to go down as the night progressed, and he acted fine. I don't know how much of this "boy" stuff my heart can handle!!!!!

And thanks to you who tried to guess the Ca Ca Ya new word. I loved hearing what you all thought! Sorry that no one got it, though. Ca Ca Ya is MOTORCYCLE. Crazy, huh? Popsicle also sounds very similar. It much be the cycle/sickle part....I have no idea. But, it is consitent EVERY time. He will hear a motorcycle and all of a sudden scream, "Ca Ca Ya!!!! Ca Ca Ya!!!!!" Of course, Reid....MOTORCYCLE!!!!! Thanks for playing! I am sure there will be more vocabulary stumpers to come.

Wow! We didn't think of that. I can't wait for the next one!

Poor guy, that sounds like that fall hurt!

Awww...I feel bad for Reid. I just hate it when Drew gets hurt too, but I'm sure there are going to many more boo boo's for both of them!

I would never have guessed that one, either. We are way out of 'baby talk' days but remember them fondly! :) We still remember a lot of them (in our family they are known as Matthew-isms). You are fortunate to have such a great record of your kids' activities and stages with your blog!

Give a kiss to the little bumped noggin for us! :)

Oh boy, I don't know how I'm going to handle all that "boy stuff" either! (Especially if Gavin is anything like my accident-prone husband!) So it was motorcycle? Nope, never would've guessed that. Very cute.

Hello, and welcome to my page! I am so glad you are here. I am going to try and show you the average life of a 5 year old from my perspective. Mommy and Daddy will help me along the way if I get stuck.

Let me first introduce my family to you. I am Ellie. I am a 6 year old. I live in Ohio with my Mommy, Daddy, little brother Reid, and dog, Sophie. My mommy is a teacher. She teaches nine and ten year olds and loves it. She has been teaching for twelve years. My daddy works with computers. He works hard everyday.

We all love spending time together. I have wonderful grandparents and a terrific extended family. I am a very lucky girl. Thank you for visiting my page. Write to me any time. I love getting mail!!!

Many blessing to you all.

Love,
Little Ski (Ellie)

Told ya, my hair can be wild! And you thought I was kidding!

Hmmm, Blue's Brother's perhaps?
