last night millie asked me why i wanted to marry dad when we got married. i proceeded to tell her about all the things i like about the guy (his eyes, his smile, his personality, his kindness towards me and others, etc.). she seemed content to know these things. then tonight she caught me off-guard when she asked me if i wanted a different husband someday. i told her no and i wanted to be married to her daddy forever and ever. surprisingly, she look a little disappointed. so a little later, i asked her why she asked me if i wanted a new husband. she then told me that she was hoping that when she grew up and became a man someday, that she was hoping to be able to marry me. yes, i was able to keep from laughing, but it was hard! we then had a discussion about how she will become a woman someday and that she can be a wife to a husband and that boy grow into men and that girls grow into women, etc. she then said, "is that because God made us that way?" and i answered "yes, that is why." it was a fun conversation :)
savannah is so proud to be walking now and is feeling quite independent at times. it's fun to see my little ones grow.
