The scary tomato

Roman's new favorite thing to say is, "I scared." He says this a hundred times a day. The poor boy is scared of everything! He's scared of Whoopi Goldberg, Japanese cartoons, cats (but not dogs...surprisingly), and many other weird things that I don't have time to list. Anyway, a few days ago Amber and the kids came over to visit. Roman was playing in the backyard with the girls and Ava noticed this funny tomato on my plant. She brought it in to us and was talking about how it looked like a man with a big nose. Amber and I kind of laughed about it and then I put it on the counter. After they left Roman kept pointing to the counter and saying, "I scared." At first I couldn't figure out what he was scared of. I asked him if he saw a bug and he said no. Then he started saying, "Nose. I scared." Then I knew he was talking about the tomato. So then I picked up the tomato and said, "Is this what you're scared of?" Before I could even finish my sentence, he ran away screaming, "No, mommy! I scared!" Seriously, Roman, you're gonna be a man someday and you really can't be scared of things like cats and tomatoes! Although that is a pretty weird looking tomato with a really bad profile. And here's a picture of my little angel baby, Iris. I took this yesterday when she was 12 days old. It's amamzing how quickly they change! She is so sweet and I just hope and pray that she stays that way.

Iris is such a dolly baby. How adorable. How is Roman adjusting so far? Does he love his baby sister? Funny about the tomato.

Iris is so adorable and I can't believe that she is almost three weeks old. Hope you are doing well!

What cute kids...You don't know me probably. I was just looking at blogs for ideas and came across yours through Lauren's...I decided to leave a comment to see if you know my in-laws, Mike & Cinthia Van Slyke? They live up in Moses Lake. I just thought it was cool you were from the same place. It's a small world.
