Funny Boy(s)

A big thank you to God for giving us a sense of humor.   Conner and Graham make us laugh just about every day.   Sometimes it's the kind of laugh that brings you to tears and you know you'll never forget the moment.  

The other day, Conner heard his Opa making a phone call.   My dad's name is Bernie and I suppose we've never mentiond that to Conner.  So when my dad said, "Hi Vic, it's Bernie" Conner heard, "Hi Vic, it's burning".  Conner immediately jumped up and started screaming, "What's burning, Opa???!!!".  My mom and I could not stop laughing.  I'm laughing while I'm typing this just thinking about it : )  

Graham also has a sense of humor, possibly even overly developed for an 18 month old.   He had his butt in the air, proceeded to fart, laughed out loud and declared, "fart!".  My mom's response was classic. - "I didn't even know that he knew the word fart".   Good times kiddos.  Good times.  

More pictures soon.  I'm having lunch by myself sitting at Panera with my laptop.   I feel collegiate and I love it.  I think there is unwritten ettiquette for computer use at a coffee shop and I think that watching videos of Olympic Ice Dancing is a no-no.  Oh well.  What are they going to do???

Have a great day!

In the Brotherhood

Starting to see the boys playing together and loving on each other - woohoo.  Of course, the hugs only come in between Graham chasing after Conner while he's yelling, "mine, mine!".   Most of their day is spent with Graham chasing Conner.   Shouldn't it be the other way around?   I'm beginning to learn not to question these things.   The best time for both of them is their bath time.  Graham laughs his biggest laughs of the day when Conner pretends to shave his cheeks with bubbles.   Periodically during they day, the two can be found hiding in Graham's closet.  They have the place tricked out with a light, music, and blankets.  Yesterday the bonding came when the two of them discovered a shiny blue bug digging a tunnel.   They were fascinated.   Conner even broke out his magnifying glass.   It was definitely a boy moment.  Next came playing with the puddle that had a tiny worm in it - yuck.  I was holding myself back the whole time trying to think of an excuse to get them out of the puddle without being a stick-in-the-mud mom. Actually, I feel like I spend most of the time feeling that way.  When will I break loose and just have more fun with these guys????
