inquiring minds want to know!

This post is going to be a little bit random, but there are a couple of things I wanted to be sure I wrote about. Lately, I have noticed that Eli and Micah have been doing more and more things that seem "twinny" to me. I'm sure there is a better word for it than that, but I have no idea what it is. Anyway, they have started saying the same thing at the same time, or doing the same thing at the same time. For example, in the bathtub a couple weeks ago they both kicked the same leg at the same time and made this huge splash, I remembered this mostly because of the huge splash, and the the fact that I was soaking wet afterwards. So, today we are all upstairs and I am changing their sheets, they are playing and Micah suddenly disappears. A couple minutes later Eli goes, "Micah is being sneaky, Mom." I asked him what he meant, and he goes on to tell me Micah is eating something. Well, Micah indeed was being sneaky and eating granola that I had made that morning. What I found so weird though, was that I never heard Micah tell Eli where he was going or what he was going to do. We were all in the same room, so I would have heard him, and probably intervened before he made it downstairs! He just left, and Eli knew what he was going to do. I am so fascinated by twins, especially identical ones, and how their connectedness comes out.
I also wanted to write out how our lunch hour went today. Eli and Micah are very talkative and are always asking tons of questions. It's fun and so interesting to see where their minds go. While I was getting lunch ready today they started asking questions, and they were so rapid fire and random I started writing them down. This happened in about 10-15 minutes or so:
1. Mom, would God laugh if I told him a joke?
2. What if I told Him in heaven?
3.Why did God make Isaac's hair white (blond)?
4. Are there lots of seagulls at the beach?
5. Where do hawks live?
6. Where do eagles live?
7. Are curly horn sheep also called rams?
8. Do some people call sheep rams?
9. Is it gooder to leave ham and cheese on your sandwich?
10. Do baby giraffes like to wrestle?
11. Are some giraffe's legs shorter so they can wrestle?
12. Have you ever seen a bear with 5 claws?

Of course as they are asking I am trying to answer as best I can! Is it any wonder some days I am DONE talking by the time Aaron gets home? :)
