Flagstaff Funnies

We just got back from another trip and apparently all this travel is taking its toll on me. I woke up with Owen this morning at around 6:15, which is his usual wake-up time, and came downstairs. I was only with him for about an hour when Derek came downstairs and I fell asleep--till 10!!! I was and still feel tired. This pregnancy really has zapped my energy. I wonder if I'm growing another huge boy baby like Owen? I don't really want to try and top Owen's nine pound birth.

While we were in Flagstaff, Ryanna wanted to know what time it was, so I told her to ask Derek. She said, "Dad, what time is it? Will you check your blueberry?"

Apparently that's the newer version of the Blackberry huh?

Then, on the drive home, she was having a discussion with Derek...

Ryanna: "Dad, do you know why I don't kill people?"

Derek: "Um, because it's wrong?"

Ryanna: "No, because I'm not strong enough."

Don't ask me why she's even thought about this. It's not as though we even let her watch PG-13 movies. I guess pre-school is a harder life than I realized.
And, for all those of you wondering if we've picked a name for this boy--we haven't. We can't seem to come to an agreement on this. Derek absolutely doesn't like the names I like and I don't like the names he likes. It's getting a bit frustrating.

Hehehe...leave it up to the kids to add a little humor to everything. I espcially like the reason Ryanna doesn't kill people. As if that were even an option...so funny!

Maybe by the time she's strong enough, she'll not want to do it. :)

Good luck on the naming. I hear ya....it's always a major struggle for us too.

She is so cute! I'm glad you had fun on your trip. Get as many naps in as you can before the baby comes!

Lacey said...

Ryanna is so funny...I love the blueberry comment!
I'm anxious to hear when you guys finally decide on a name for this baby! And, I'm with Melissa. Get in some good naps now!!! Atleast you don't have 8am church!!!

Your trips sound like a great time! I am so glad you were able to get a bit spoiled by family back home...that's what it's all about anyway! So good to get out of the blasted heat too!

Man, I can relate with the pregnancy tiredness...I find myself wanting to crawl into bed at 9pm....something I normally would never do. I always forget what it's like to be prego!

I can relate to both the exhausted-I-need-a-lot-of-sleep-phase, and the naming of the child. Me and all the kids have picked a name but Shawn doesn't like it. My oldest said maybe we should just name her what we want and Dad can call her whatever he wants. Crazy. I'm actually considering it...

Well, it's a good thing she's not strong enoough!
Maybe baby #3 will be a late sleeper. You deserve one.

Cute Ryanna-isms! I love it. Good luck with the naming. I remember your pain with naming Owen!

You look like you are having so much fun this summer!! I miss the midwest your midwest pics made me a little homesick. Ryanna comments are too funny! What did you guys do while in Flagstaff? That sounds like a really fun thing to do.

Audrey, I love reading your blog. I always feel like I'm having a conversation with you. Hope your energy comes back really soon!

She is such a funny girl! Good luck with naming "baby boy". Mike picked out both of our kids' names. I would narrow the list down to two or three and then he chose. I could commit to anything, so that's how it went down :)

I am tired from our trip to AZ. Glad you had fun in Mo. What part? I was born and raised in Missouri/Kansas. . . Which I have probably told you before. . . I am good at repeating myself!
