There have been some cute things the boys have said or done lately that I wanted to get down before I forgot.

Right now Isaac has this crazy fear of chewing gum. If he even sees you chewing it, he runs away, and if you are holding him and chewing it, he WILL NOT look at you. He buries his face in your shoulder. I think it is from being scared a few too many times of bubbles popping loudly.
He also does this cute thing where he climbs up in my lap while I'm sitting on the couch facing me, so we are nose to nose. He also does this when I have the laptop on my lap too, so he is in between me and the computer. It's sort of like he is saying, "Mom, I need your attention RIGHT NOW."
He has a pacifier in his mouth a lot, and when he smiles with it in, he has the cutest "smile with your eyes" smile you have ever seen!

Over Thanksgiving he squished himself in the fridge at my parent's house and said, "Look, I'm a leftover!"
He was playing with a vacuum attachment and said, "Mom, wanna play live savers with me?" (translation: light sabers)
He and Eli just watched the movie, "An American Tale" with the little mouse Fievel, and they both thought his name was Bible.
In the car yesterday he asked me, "Mom, what is that truck hollering (hauling)?"

A couple of times now he has said, "Mom, I think I am falling in love with you."
Yesterday when I was vacuuming he said, "Mom, thanks for all the work."
Eli is really into helping me right now, with whatever I am doing. He runs and gets a stool and gets as close as he can. It takes a lot of patience on my part because it invariably takes at least twice as long if not longer when he "helps" me, but I know how important it is to him.
