Brother Knows Best

I got the troops ready early for church for the sole purpose of a photo shoot. As usual, Walker had other plans. 

 But Harris was ready for some posing....

After a few takes, he was determined to get Walker back in action. Somehow, he did it peacefully. It started out with chasing Walker up the neighbor's driveway.

Gently yet forcefully turning him around......

There's a close line between a brotherly nudge and an all-out shove, but he stayed sweet.

                                Leading him by the hand in the right direction.

 Still walking sweetly. Notice Walker's right shoe is missing. He's CONSTANTLY taking off his right shoe and only his right shoe. No idea what that's about.

                               Harris turned on the charm for the camera.

After all that, they never sat on the steps and took a pic. By the time they made it to the driveway, it degenerated into this.  
They love to shove on the garage door as hard as they can. They both grunt and push with all their strength. Why would they think that's fun???

So that's what's new with us. The rest of this post is really just for me to remember what Harris said, so feel free to stop reading. The other day I asked him to do something and he told me, "You can count on me, mommy!" He calls everyone his friend, which I LOVE. He was asking me when his friend Daddy was going to be home. And he's still talking about his friend the policeman, who gave him a sticker. He is on a kick of suggesting other things than what I suggest. I offered him a circle sandwich (on those thin round bread things) and he told me, "I can have a parfait, maybe that's a great idea!" Every idea he comes up with ends in "Maybe that could be a great idea."

Walker is really a ham lately. If we're in a store he wants to make eye contact with people, wave enthusiastically, and say "Hiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!" He's all about the "Hiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeee" and "Biiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeee." And he's discovered he likes chips. That makes two little chip fanatics, so Tom has to be careful about getting a bag out of the pantry. He has become really sneaky about it. The CIA has nothing on the parents of observant, tantrum-prone toddlers.

Psalm 145:3
 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.
