Interview with...Millicent

Well I have a few minutes in between nursing Ju-Ju, holding Asa back from climbing on me and her, and tending to all the other needs around here. Just a quick interview with Millicent. I'll be back soon with my birth story. I know, I know. But I really mean it.

Me: What do you think of Jerusha?

Mill: Cute (This is also Asa's description of her.)

Me: What do you like to do with her?

Mill: Play and hold. I like to play and hold her. (There has been no playing but lots and lots of holding.)

Me: Who does she look like?

Mill: Me and Asa. (Yes, she does!)

Me: How do you help?

Mill: By getting her dressed and changing her diaper. (Well, close. She gets the diapers and the clothes, but I do the dressing. She did however, help put socks and lotion on.)

Me: What do you think of her name?

Mill: Cute and inspired. (I'm telling you...she said inspired. And she meant inspired by God.)

Me: What do you want to teach her?

Mill: How to go to the potty. And how to walk. (Would sure be nice if she'd teach Asa to go potty.)

Me: Tell me something about J that you like.

Mill: That she looks cute and she lets me hold her.

Me: Where did I have her?

Mill: In the birth pool.

Me: Where did I have you?

Mill: In the birth pool. Ask where you had Asa.

Me: Where did I have Asa?

Mill: At the doctors.

Me: Tell me something about Asa's birth.

Mill: Not good. (Hey, they're my kids to brainwash.)

Me: Why not?

Mill: Because.

Me: Because why.

Mill: Because he was sick.

Me: How was Ju-Ju's birth?

Mill: Good.

Me: Why?

Mill: Because she wasn't sick. (Like, duh, mom.)

Me: Are you silly a girl?

Mill: Yeah. (A resounding YES!)

Me: Do let like to tell jokes?

Mill: Yeah. (I concur. All day long.)

Father Abraham (That was her joke for my blog friends.)

Me: What are you going to do now?

Mill: Take a bath...I mean, go wait for Kori in the bathroom. (Then take a bath.)

And, oh my goodness, is this too precious. This sends the oxytocin to flowing.

I love it how little ones can tell you such interesting things, isn't? I just love asking my almost 3 year old, and my 5 year old. Thats a great idea at recording their answers.

Just wanted to let you know that I have changed my blog name, from kissingmyfamily, to

Thanks for visiting.

How sweet is this! I love that she likes to hold her :D

Honestly, how tempted were you to use the name Renesme when she came out a girl?

Because... I'm seriously considering Esme. It's perdy! :D
