Yeah Yeah!

When we picked up Lincoln at the Dallas airport last month after he had been gone nearly seven weeks, one thing Oliver kept repeating was "Yeah Yeah." I couldn't figure this out. It wouldn't make sense for him to be saying "YeYe" (Lillie), because Lillie wasn't with us that day. Then Lincoln reminded me that in the weeks before he had departed, one of the things he did to get a smile out of Oliver was to say to him, "Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah!" All we can figure is that when Oliver saw Lincoln at the airport after all those weeks, he must have thought to himself, "Oh, that's the big bubba that says 'yeah yeah' to me." Ever since that day, he's called him Yeah Yeah.

Here's Oliver watching his big brother mow the lawn today.
