Brotherly Love

On Monday I had to wake Zach up at about 7:25 to eat breakfast and get ready for school. I was holding Drew in my arms when I woke Zach, and Zach said in his sleepy state, "Where's Drew?" I told him, "Right here. Why?" Zach said, "I want to snuggle him." Drew had already been saying he wanted to eat, so I didn't know how it would go, but I sort of laid Drew down on Zach (Zach was on his side, and I laid Drew down so they were sort of perpendicular to each other), and the two boys just laid there and snuggled, Zach rubbing Drew's head and me rubbing Zach's head. It was precious. What a great way to start the day. It's funny, because Drew loves to give Zach hugs, and will randomly go up to Zach during any given day and say, "Hug," and the boys will hug each other. Sadly, Drew does not do this to Mike or me. He loves his big brother, that's for sure.

Here's a little video of the boys playing after naps on Monday. First we had the beach towels out and were playing beach in the hallway upstairs, and then the boys decided to play pirates. Zach put on his cowboy boots (no pants, though, as he naps in his underwear and really delays putting his pants back on as long as possible) as his pirate boots, and Drew decided he needed boots, too. The only boots Drew has are his snow boots, but he was fine with those becoming pirate boots. So we played pirates, and they got on their ship (our bed), and then they became tackling pirates. This video cracks me up because of their outfits and because of them tackling each other. Watch Drew when he gets tackled or tackles Zach- he does this funny thing where he sort of pokes Zach's cheek. He tackled me once and did it to me, too. I'm not sure what he's trying to do, but I find it very cute and funny.

1/24/10 Update- My mom told me earlier today that the video of Drew singing is on the end of this video. I have no idea how that happened.

Cam asked after watching this if he and Myles can play pirates when Myles is a "toddeler". But he was also worried about them falling off the bed!
