First of all, I'd like to announce Arden's successful extabation! Arden once again teamed up with God and against all odds is impressing the doctors with her breathing! Can I get a Whoop! Whoop!
I just wanted to share a few comments from Elliot today. He is such a ray of sunshine (when he isn't be a toad!) that I thought I'd share the light!
Elliot: (Out of nowhere while we are driving) Mommie, I don't want to be nice.
Me: Why not?
Elliot: b/c I've been nice all year so I don't have to be nice anymore.
Me: Well, okay. But we still need to be nice. We should always be nice to people.
Elliot: No, all the weeks I was nice so I'm all done.
Elliot: I love you all the way to the future!
Me: Pick your shirt up, we don't leave our clothes in the middle of the floor.
Elliot: Well its dirty now b/c it's on the floor so I don't want to pick it up b/c it has germs now. You can get it Mommie so I don't get germs.
Elliot: Lord Jesus, thank you for God and for Jesus. And Jesus help me to listen and respect all the years. Amen
Elliot: Can I sit on sisters bed?
Me: Not yet buddy, there are still too many tubes. You will be able to really soon though.
Elliot: But I have to sit on the bed Mommie because sister loves me.
Eric: Are you excited to go to the baseball game?
Elliot: No, I already go to one of those.
Me: but you are going to see Kelly and Ethan there.
Elliot: But I already see them so I don't want to go.
Me: Well they will be wearing different clothes, and you are wearing different clothes. So this will be different.
Elliot: (LONG PAUSE while he blank face stares at me) Okay, then I'll go.
I love my Elliot Thomas! Just thought I'd share! :)
