I don't want to forget

I want to always remember all the funny, sweet and charming things that Chase says.  Right now, at 3 years and 9 months old, life is all about this little boy.  Things are going to change so much in 4 weeks or so (Please, God, maybe less) for us and especially for Chase.  But that's a whole other blog post.

For now, I want to document a little bit of the 'funny' that is fresh on my mind from this morning.  We were all 3 about to walk out the door.

And Chase announced, "I want to ride with Daddy.  Because we're mans.  And mans ride in man cars."

A couple of nights ago he asked me for a screw driver because he needed to 'fix' one of his toys.  After fixing the toy, he looked around the room and said, "Now what can I screw?"

This was about 30 minutes after he'd told me that his baby (this small, lovey that looks like a baby) was thirsty.  I took advantage of this teaching opportunity and grabbed one of the bottles that I'd just dug up from the garage and showed him how to feed his baby.  He asked me how you hold a baby so I demonstrated and then he practiced.  I almost teared up at this moment. Then he said that the baby was tired and needed a nap.  So we tucked his baby in under a blanket in the living room.

These are the moments that I wish I could capture and replay over and over.
