Lexie Has Long Arms

Last week was Johanna’s baptism. We had the family over for a wonderful brunch afterwards.

The girls were playing some sort of tickle game with Aram and he pointed out that he had the advantage because he has long arms.

Lexie immediately informed him that she too has long arms.

Later that night, as Dave was putting the girls to bed, Lexie says to him “my have long arms”. And she raised her arms over her head.

Her hands barely reach past her pigtails when she raises them.

The next night in the bath tub, she says to me, very seriously, “my have long arms….. and big muscles” She flexed her arm.

Lexie has neither long arms nor big muscles. As a matter of fact, her arms are SCRAWNY. She had her two-year check up this month and she is now in the 25th percentile for weight and height. She used to be in the 90th percentile for both but she is shrinking. Or, as my pediatrician corrected me, slowing down (this doctor doesn’t get my sense of humor).

Baby Jo is in the 90th percentile but her arms are even shorter right now. They barely reach past her ears when you raise them up.

That is so odd that babies are born that way.

Truer Words Were Never Spoken

Lately, Bekah has been intrigued by birthdays (probably because Dave’s is around the corner).

The other day and she says to me, “Mommy, your birthday is coming up and we are going to get you a present. What is your favorite thing?”

And then she pauses and says thoughtfully, “but don’t say KIDS because we already have enough of those”.


I left my nursing bra pads on the coffee table the other day. Lexie brings them to me and says, “mommy, you lost you boobs”.
