How Babies are Made.... a 3 Year Olds' Definition

On Christmas Day I was laying back on the ground in the middle of our living room, exhausted from two hours of frantic cooking in order to get dinner on the table by 5:30.  The food was not yet eaten, but was still cooling, and I think Paul was in cutting up the ham.

I'd already changed into my favorite pajama pants and a t-shirt, because I was feeling a bit under the weather, and as I lay back with my arms over my head, a bit of my stomach peeked out.  Sadie quickly slid over next to me and started pushing at my stomach around my belly button, like she was kneading dough (she helps me knead dough when I make bread).  As she did this she announced:  "This is how you make a baby!"

So there you have it, from the mouth of our three year old: that's how you make a baby!


  1. LOL .. Precious! I love the things kids say like that. One "Ceciliaism" that lives on in our house is "Onions aren't good for me because I don't like them." Love how little ones think!

  2. Uh, I love it!! Obviously that's how you make a baby cause that's how you make everything else awesome: cookies, bread....love that girl!

  3. I just love this picture of our girls.



I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
