Is there anything cuter than a 3-year-old? We can't get enough of Tanner, and lately he says the funniest things. I can't help but share a few Tanner anectdotes:

While driving by the park, Tanner says, "Mommy, can you please slow down! I want to see! Drive Adagio, okay?" (hmm... too much "Little Einsteins" perhaps?)

Tanner's favorite church song is "I am a Child of God." After finally convincing Bailey that the song is not "I am a Cheetoh of God", Tanner has pressed on in applying the song to most everything he sees. While playing in the backyard the other day, he picked up a ladybug and serenaded: "You are a lady bug of God..." He told me that I am a "grown up of God."

In a fit of excitement after seeing an ambulance, Tanner yells, "Holy Gosh! We've gotta tell Daddy about this!" (Holy Cow! Oh my Gosh!)

After receiving the bread portion of the sacrament in church, Tanner turns to me and conspiratorially says, "Maybe next time they'll have peanut butter and jelly."

We've been working on manners lately. After I told the kids, "That's enough! I haven't heard a single "please" from any of you," Tanner came running up to me. "Can I have a fruit snack, please? Hey, guess what? I said a single please!!!"

Completely out-of-the-blue, Tanner says, "Hey, Mom! I figured it out! Barney is a hippo!" When I suggested that Barney might be a dinosaur instead, Tanner said, "Good try, Mom. But Barney looks too silly to be a dinosaur."

Ok, Tanner is hilarious! As I read this, I just kept thinking of Lily. Those two would have a blast together.

I can't get over "I am a cheetoh of God."

Tanner's absolutely adorable! I wish we could see him more often.
