The Attraction of Batman is Strong...

Gunnison has recently upped his speaking quota. It is, of course, only understandable via Mommy Translation Services, but the increase HAS been noted. One of my favorite words he has acquired is Batman (pronounced batba). Gavin received an Imaginext BatCave from Santa and Gunner loves it. He will come up to me and request "Batba" with the intent to play. This morning I got to see a fun brother-love moment and I thought to share it with you. --- Gunner came running up to me and requested "up". Once I was holding him, he grabbed my cheeks to make sure I was looking at him and asked for "Batba". I said "Sure, I'll get Batman for you" and he quickly wriggled his way to the floor. He headed for the boys' room, but stopped after a couple of steps. He turned around and ran to Josiah, who was standing a few feet away. Gun grabbed his shirt tail and garbled "iah, Batba?" He was asking Jos to play with him! Totally cute!! Josiah said yes, Gunner got a HUGE grin and ran to the boys' room with Josiah following. Ahhh...makes all their goobery-ness this morning okay.

I love it when siblings play together so nicely. Yeah for Gunner talking. Cara is in speech therapy because she refuses to talk. Pretty soon, your boys will have their own club!

Ahhh. That's so stinking sweet! Jos is such a great older brother. What a cute little brother Gun is too! My heart is just melting for them (sticky-sweet and over the top, I know, yet oh-so-true!)

ps-the other day Ez was "killing monsters into lots of little pieces" with his sword (aka spatula) because he was a knight and it sooo reminded me of something your boys would do. I can't even wait for all the little beasties to play together again!

I love kid-speak! Gunner is so cute and his BIG personality is hard to contain in such a tiny body.
