Move over Curious George, Lightning McQueen has come to town. Eli is becoming quite obsessed with the Disney Cars movie and loves to pretend race, talk, eat, sleep, etc. with his toy cars. He knows most of their names and often (almost every day) manages to tell us the long list of cars that "I wish I could have...." and that maybe "we could just go to Walmart and get them!". Scary!

He loves quoting different parts of the movie but doesn't always get it quite right. This makes it even more humorous for us! :) Yesterday he was racing his bike around the backyard saying...

"Ride like a cowboy, stingin' like a beaver"
(the actual saying is "Float like a Cadillac, sting like a Beamer")

And then yesterday morning as we (yes me, on my hands and knees being six months pregnant) were racing our cars around the couch we noticed that one of the cars, Shiny Wax, has a very small mustache. Eli announced that due to that fact, Shiny Wax could now say "Ca-chigga" along with Chick Hicks, who also has a mustache.

"Ca-chow" (originally said by McQueen, but now reserved for all non-mustache people)
"Ca-Chigga" (only allowed by mustache sporting individuals)

Daddy must say Ca-chigga, but mommy and Eli have to say Ca-chow! I don't care who his favorite character is at the moment, he is still a monkey!!!

"Pink Naomi"

Eli's latest nickname for his baby sister is "pink Naomi"...at least it includes her name this time!!! So tonight as I was folding and sorting through a ton of baby girl clothes passed on to me by my bible study circle, Eli says, "Are these clothes for Naomi?" I said, "yes, how could you tell, because they were pink?" and he replies, "no, because they are so little!"

He is starting to see the benefit of having a "little" sister. It means he gets to be the "Big" brother! I think he'll wear that badge proudly.

And this is only the 0-3 months size. Naomi is well stocked already!

P.S. Eli is very verbal (no surprise there!) but he has been cracking me up with his elaborate sentences lately. Tonight he was talking about going to see Daddy play indoor football next week and says, "Do you think they will have Starburst there? I like them a whole many much!" I'd say he likes Starburst, what do you think?
