I was getting ready one morning and Jake poked his head around the corner and asked, "How do you make the 'ooooooo' sound?"
Applying my mascara, I replied, "Usually that is with two O's."
"Ok, thanks Mom." And he disappeared as quickly as he came.
A few minutes later, with a big grin, I was handed this:
My FAVORITE "I love you."
It's up next to my bed and makes me smile every night when I crawl into bed.

A couple of days later we were all in the car, driving into Santiago to take Luke to his 2 year old check-up. I had brought along some workbooks to keep Kate and Jake busy while I talked with the doctor. One of the pages in Jake's book had a spot for him to draw pictures of things that started with the letter "W."
As we were driving, Jake was having a hard time thinking of other words after "whale" and "water."I wasn't much help because I was focused on keeping us from getting side-swiped on the road. It's a daily task I'm enduring. It all goes back to not being able to multi-task down here. A frustrating phenomenon for me. Anyway, after a few minutes I heard from the back seat,
"I KNOW!!! A WESTAURANT!!!"
No real differentiation between our W's and R's yet...and I'm in no hurry to fix it :)
