On the last day of swimming lessons, the kids learned about boat safety and life jackets. The canoe in the pool was super fun!
What a goob!
I love, love, love dressing these boys alike! I think I squeezed Joey into this shirt for the last time on Sunday, though. His belly is about to bust a few of the buttons and the sleeves barely cover his elbows. (That's why they're rolled up!) So sad... I had laid Conner's still-a-little-damp-from-the-dryer comforter on the back of the couch to finish drying. It made the perfect hiding spot!
Joey's found those little feet...he's constantly kicking at the toys that hang in front of him when he's in the bouncy seat. (What in the world would I do without that?!)
There's that big ol' grin!
Conner was a lot of "help" at the church workday!
They just look sweet and innocent!
"Pooper" -what Micah calls his friend, Cooper
Conner, to Bret: "Dad, how old is Mommy?"
Bret: "How old do you think she is?"
Conner: "Maybe fifteen?"
Bret: "I think she's a little bit older than that."
Conner: "How 'bout 65?"
"Dad, you're here now!" --what Micah has started saying as soon as Bret gets home in the afternoon. It melts Bret's heart.
As I was walking into Joey's room one morning, Conner close on my heels, I was greeted by the smell of a very stinky diaper. I said, "Choo-wee, Joey, you stink!"
About a year ago Conner started telling us about the times when we lived in Oklahoma, New York City and Houston Texas...go figure. The other day he was talking about living in Oklahoma and Bret asked him: "Conner, what was my job when we lived in Oklahoma?"
Micah (counting down): "fy (5)...fo-wer (4)...gwee(3) ...one...ay (8)...bwastoff!!
We rented Meet the Robinsons from Blockbuster the other night. Micah was really excited about it and kept calling it "Meet Da Robins." Conner, being the good big brother that he is, continually corrected him. "No, Micah. It's Meet the Robin-sins!" Gradually, as he got the hang of it, Micah started saying, "Meet Da Robin...sins," as if the "sins" part was an afterthought, a separate word. By the next day he was carrying around the movie case saying, "Mommy, Meet Da Robins. Want watch it...sins."
