off the chain...

Perry D is about to take off... he has been cruising the furniture for several weeks but recently began letting go!  He stands by himself and has taken a step or two.  He is still very wobbly but it is just a matter of time and this household will be "of the chain" as York would say.  (thanks to our outside influences)  I am excited for sweet Perry because he is so proud of himself!!  He is also a little daredevil and will attempt stairs, uses York's back or hair as stability to stand or pull up, and loves bathtub standing (YIKES).  It is getting a bit dangerous in the Harless Hood ... York will jump on your back or throw a ball when your not looking, "help" his brother walk on the hardwoods (SCARY), picks his brother up when he is "in the way", and racing Perry at high speeds in his walker through the Harless Speedway.  It is definitely a boy zone and I'm loving it!  York has recently taken an interest in dressing himself.  He wants to wear pants with pockets because he can then carry his "monies".  He is very generous with his monies.. I asked him the other day to pay for our lunch and he said "sure mom" and got his monies out.  I think he was a couple bucks short... but it's the thought that counts!  I want my boys to always give and never be selfish.  I want others to say 'those Harless boys will give the shirt off their back' if you asked.  So we are starting early with giving him offering for church or giving toys away that we aren't using.  I hope theirs hearts will be so big that it feeds their soul to help others.  That is very important to me and I will do my best to instill those values and lessons whenever possible.  These boys keep me on my toes but also melt my heart.  What an amazing gift to be a mom.  What an amazing God to choose these 2 sweet boys for Wesley and I.  I am crazy in love!  

Jabber Jaws UPDATE:
My sister and Brad joined us at the lake a couple of weekends ago and we were walking out to meet them and York screams: "her brought a him!!"

On the way home from dinner the other night York yelled out his window "War Eagle, God!"

We were laughing and York interjects:  "That is just hilarious"

York loves to roll his window down on the way home and the other night I noticed him pretending to cast a fishing pole then reel it up.  I asked him what he was doing and he replied:  "God I reel you in"  I hope one day he decides to "catch" God and puts him in his heart forever!

He was running around the house yelling "I'm stupor York"

We were watching television and York grabs my hand and says, "Mickey Mouse is a cool dude like me!"

"I wanna be a garbage man mommy"

I turned the cartoon on that he likes and he said, "That's what I'm talking about!"

I finished dressing him and was combing his hair and he looked into the mirror and stated, "I be looking too good!"

"Look, mom, It's the home de-to" as we passed the Home Depot

We went to Children's Hospital to check out York's cough (it is Croup by the way) and a male doctor can into the room and York says, "I need lady doctor... you not doctor!"
