Here are some pictures of Christmas Eve and Christmas. After that, I listed a few of the funny things Dominic has been saying lately.
- We heard Cate screaming a sort of muffled scream. Matt ran in to check on her and found nothing suspicious.
M: What's going on in here? What'd you do?
D: Nothing. I'm just being her protector.It happened again just a minute later. Matt went in.
M: What's going on in here? What happened?
D: Nothing. I'm just trying to help her be a good...uh...boy.
- After cousin Michael was born, we were discussing this with Dominic. He told us, Michael came out of Aunt Sarah's belly. Then Dominic rubbed his belly. I fully expected Dominic to say something about having a baby in his belly. Then he started rubbing his chest. "I have Jesus in my heart. Mommy, you have Jesus in your heart. Daddy, you do too."
- I was chopping up spinach and Dominic was standing on a chair next to me watching. He kept saying, Mommy, be careful. You'll chop your fingers off. I told him, of course I'm being careful. I have lots of practice and am very careful. He insisted, Mommy, be careful. You'll chop your fingers off! I was having great trouble resisting the urge to laugh at his concern, but I managed to respond by thanking him for his concern, but again, I reiterated, I'm being careful. I know just how to chop vegetables with sharp knives. Mommy can do this. Then he reached out and took my hand (the one without the knife in it) and pulled it away from the spinach. No Mommy. You'll chop your fingers off!
