Definitely a drummer

Eejee yowled until the Mayor let him play the drum...

Why we bathe

Seimi announced, I need to take a bath.  I'm filthy!  See that? [pointing at his filthy hobbitling feet]  That's called "DIRT."

10-month-old musician

The Mayor pulled his old bodhran (Celtic drum) out of storage this afternoon and was practicing for a little bit.  After Eejee finished eating at the table and was put down to play, he immediately crawled over and grabbed his bucket of big Legos.  The Hobbit Wife then noticed he had pulled the lid off and was drumming. 

At 10 months, we think we have a musician on our hands!

Last night when friends were over, they were talking about going to the dollar store.

Boookie helpfully offered, Oh, you mean the bank.

A timely brother

When chatting with Boookie this morning, the Hobbit Wife asked if things were better now that Seimi has his own clock.  "Does Seimi still ask, BOOOKIE!! IS IT SEVEN YET???" (The lads have to stay in their own bubble until seven every morning.)

"No," replied Boookie, "but my new problem is that he reads the numbers at odd times during the middle of the night and asks me what they mean!"

The many faces of Eejee

OK, so we know it's only one face, but we can't help ourselves.
