Elijah: It's almost CHRISTMAS, mommy
Me: Nope. It's September.
Elijah: But it IS. It IS almost Christmas
Me: No, it's not Elijah.
Elijah: Christmas is coming.
Me: It's super far from now.
Elijah: No. Christmas is ALMOST here.
Me: It's not coming
Elijah: Yes, it IS, it IS coming
Me: Elijah, it's three months away, you---
Elijah: NOT TODAY…but AFTER today…it IS coming.

He's supposed to be napping and I hear rumbling upstairs so I go to check. I walk into his room and from the door I can already see stuffing overflowing from his bed.
Me: ELIJAH! WHat did you DO? WHERE is that coming from? (Feeling sorry for whatever stuffed animal it used to be)
Elijah: (waves hand in front of me, shaking it like in a "calm down" kind of way) Oh, no, it's OKAY, mommy, I was just buiwding (building) cwouds. CWOUDS, mommy, (pointing finger at me) It's OKAY. They. Are. Just. CWOUDS. (clouds)
I realized he had taken the stuffing out of his pillow, all of it, and surrounding his crib he has clusters of 'cloud' in each quadrant.
(his pillow is still lumpy, which he uncomfortably remembers when going to bed and explains to me, "My pillow doesn't feel good because remember when I make CWOUDS?)
Elijah had been asking a lot lately about our rings, so Justin explained to him one morning that they were wedding rings, we got at our wedding. I'm putting his shoes on that morning.
Me: Are you SO excited to go to school today, Elijah??
Elijah: YEAH. Are you so excited to get MAWWIED today, mommy? (married)
Elijah: See, your wing. It's SO pretty. (holding my hand) Daddy give you this wing, and you give daddy a wing, and you get MAWWIED and you are so, SO excited for you!!!!(shaking my arm with excitement)
Me: I guess,…well, it is kind of exciting isn't it.
