Graham feeding Eli

Graham loves his brother, well Eli, at least. Not sure about his love for "uke" yet. Graham likes to talk to Eli, give him toys, and even help hold his bottle. Joe was changing Eli's diaper and had the bottle next to the changing table. Graham picked it up and went over and put it in Eli's mouth and tried to feed him. It was very cute and we hope the brotherly love continues.

We had more snow today. Erin took both boys outside. It was an adventure getting Graham's boots on while he is screaming. Trying to get the fingers into the gloves and not have 2 fingers in one finger hole. Trying to keep the hats on and not have them overheated before they made it outside. Once they got out there, Graham fell a lot which was followed by cries, as he couldn't get back up with his snowsuit. Joe got the tractor out and we hooked the sled up to the tractor and the boys got rides on it. They enjoyed it a lot and even Joe went for a ride with Graham. Luke came in and said "Daddy fell while trying to surf" so I guess surfing on the snow with a sled pulled by a tractor isn't a good idea. When it was all over-luke enjoyed his bowl of hot chocolate soup.

Mickey Mouses(s)

Ever since coming home from Disneyland, Graham has slept with his 2 Mickeys. Some days they come downstairs and some days they stay in his crib. This is him carrying them downstairs, normally one gets carried by the nose, but his "mos" as he calls it doesn't seem to mind.

We had our first snow fall of the season where there was any accumulation. We had some snow a few days ago but it was only a dusting, Luke however was excited to go outside in the snow and proceeded to eat the snow. So with this snow falling, Aunt Erin took him outside and pulled him around on his new sled. They even built a very baby snowman.

Christmas Countdown

Luke is all excited about Christmas. I got Joe some gum for his stocking stuffer and made the mistake of wrapping it in front of Luke. He of course loves gum and wanted to open it now and chew it. I tried explaining that it was a) Daddy's and not Luke's present and b) we had to wait until Christmas to open it. This really isn't working as every day he asks if he can open Daddy's stocking. Joe said when he was little they would make a chain of rings and countdown until Santa comes. So we made this and for the last 2 mornings, Luke has slept with his "ring" of the evening and today he brought them downstairs with him. I am not sure if we are going to have 25 rings in his bed at the end of this month or not??
