Yesterday as she was leaving the playground, my sister tried to steal David. Apparently, he would not be stolen. I left Elisabeth racing around the swing sets and brought David closer to us. As we walked, he said, "I don't want to go with Aunty, but I would trade Tink for Jade!"

We've all felt like that at times. Please can I trade my annoying sibling for my best friend?

We stayed at the playground for a while longer, then walked home. That afternoon David and Elisabeth went to Aunty's to play with Jade for a few hours. Then we had dinner and played in their rooms and finally went to bed.

It was Bible Study night last night and David had been in bed for a few hours. We were in the middle of praying when I heard David yelling. I went upstairs and David sobbed, "Mama, I don't want to trade Elisabeth for Jade! I'd miss her. I love her. But maybe we could have Jade and Tinky??"

No wonder David's size 7 jeans barely fit him - he's grown more than two inches in seven months! I measured him and Elisabeth this morning since everyone keeps telling me that David looks really tall all of a sudden. I'm five ten and David easily rests under my elbow when we're standing in the in, I can put my elbow on his head and it's the perfect height for me to lean on him ;) Elisabeth has also grown a ton since August. Probably a little less than two inches, but this explains why nothing is fitting them all of a sudden. Good thing shorts/tshirt season is on it's way!!
