This week I am rejoicing in my boys.
I almost didn't get this picture. We were upstairs laughing to beat the band and I thought, I'd love to get a picture of this, but the camera is downstairs and I'd rather just be present for this moment. But we just kept laughing and laughing and I thought, I think I can capture this.
In this moment D and G are reading The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog. One of our favorites. G knows it by heart and loves when he can say "blah, blah, blah" along with the pigeon. I don't think he's ever heard anyone say "blah, blah, blah" other than the pigeon, but he has always gotten that it's a funny thing to say. G's sense of humor was obvious to us when he was just a wee little babe. We have great audio of his laughter at just a few weeks old. He is truly a testament to a great quote I read from Paul Krassner: "English is my second language. Laughter is my first." It's true for all of us and I love that my boys speak it so fluently.
