Boys will be boys

My kids have always found a way to make me smile, even in unhappy situations. They can sure drive me crazy with their whining, crying, fighting, and tantrums, but they have a sweet side, too. Max is just into EVERYTHING lately. He knows what will get him in trouble and then he runs away faster than I can catch him. Today we were outside playing in the front yard. There was snow this morning, but it had all melted and the sun was out. So there was water dripping out of the rain gutter and causing a little puddle. Well, Max found it and turned it into a huge mess! He got mud everywhere! But he was having so much fun, and just look at that face! And then this week he was in the bathroom and I peeked in on him to find this...Little Rascal! I had to write down some of the cute words Max is saying these days. He is talking so much. He repeats a lot of words and some of his favorite words to say are:

pillow, snow, bah bah (bottle), cahnee(candy), cah cah(cracker), cheese, banana, ah-la (hola), hell-ow (hello), oh me (hold me), apple, sana (mansana), gink (drink), duck, neigh (for horse), no no, pacurn (popcorn), clean, all done.

Earlier today I was reading a book to Lukas and we needed to turn the page. He licked the finger on his right hand, like he was going to use it help him turn the page, and then he turned the page with his left hand! I was laughing so hard! I guess he must've seen me lick my finger to turn the page one time. I guess he didn't realize he needed to use the same finger he licked. I wonder what his little mind thinks...If I lick my finger, then I can turn the page w/ my other hand...??!

I had to put a picture of Lukas being "reverant".

And his cool sunglasses (he was actually showing me his "move" when I took this picture. He and Max loves to dance.)

Oh my goodness, what fun Max must have had playing in that mud! It's so great that you were able to get a picture of this, because you will definitely need it for posterity! I also love the shot of Lukas being reverant. TOO CUTE!

You are so right...boys will be boys! I don't know how many times I have walked into the bathroom and found Blake unrolling the toilet paper, or sticking his hands in the toilet, or throwing random things away in the trash can. It's so fun to watch the explore and have fun. That picture of Max in the mud is too funny and I love the sweet picture of Lukas folding his arms. You're gonna miss this, right?
