The boys’ new favorite word is…can you guess? DOG! They say “dog” all day long, especially when they haven’t seen Goldie in a while, like after their naps. Micah says, “Dog, dog, dog, dog, dog?” And Benji will say, “Hi! Hi! Hi! Hey dog!” It is so cute. They also recognize dogs on tv, movies, books, and toys. Sometimes they call animals “dogs” that aren’t dogs, at all, like cats, or our stuffed toy opossum (a wonderful birthday present from their Aunt Candace….)
Well, last night, apparently, animals aren’t the only thing the boys are calling “dog.” Micah was sitting snuggled in Aaron’s lap. Aaron had his arms around Micah and they were sitting contentedly. All of a sudden, Micah pointed to Aaron’s arm, his rather hairy arm, and said “Dog?” We couldn’t stop laughing.
