Jonah being held by his great-grandma (aka GG)
My dad grew up in Seattle and is the only one that moved to the East Coast so it's a rare treat to see our West Coast family. I keep telling Luke we need to go out and visit since Luke has never been west of Texas. My one aunt couldn't make the trip this time and I know she would love to see the littles!
four generations- and as usual Noelle is too busy eating
We also had another speech therapy appointment this week. At this point when I tell Noelle that her therapist is coming she gets excited, and this week she stood waiting at the window to watch for her. This week they played with play-dough and read Good Night Moon, working on 2 syllable words and putting two words together. We scheduled her 6 month assessment for October, and I'm definitely nervous about it. Some days I don't think about her speech much, but other times I realize how far behind she is and I worry so much about what the future holds for her. It's definitely a continual lesson in learning to trust the Lord with the lives of my children.
waiting at the window
We had an absolutely beautiful beginning-of-fall day yesterday with clear blue skies, low humidity, and sunshine galore. Jonah's been extra fussy the last few days (teething??), and I needed to get them out of the house. So I strapped them in the stroller and we took off for a nice long walk. Since I haven't run in almost 4 weeks, it was quite the workout pushing 50+ pounds around for over an hour.

And Luke and I finished off the work week with a quick date to Chipotle while Grandma, Grandpa, and Aunt Lydia watched their favorite children!
