This package of mustache stickers (a present to Laith from some friends) got some serious mileage 🙂 A lovely visit from our friends (of 25 years!) the Sutters And a lovely visit and dinner with our friends the Moores More mustache action:Laith’s ‘stache looks scarily realisticSophie has been doing hippotherapy- similar to therapeutic riding but with a licenced occupational therapist leading the session and implementing strategies that challenge Sophie’s particular weaknesses. After 3 weeks, Sophie had enough core-strength and stability to ditch the highchair and sit safely in a regular chair at our table!
Lucas has been able to resume Tae Kwon Do and after a month back in it, tested for his orange belt! Good job, Lucas! I still can’t get over the cuteness of seeing 3-6 year olds doing martial arts 🙂 Sophie and Gigi are so sweet together And Lucas exploded my heart with this sweetness: he gave me this clay jar he made with little yellow balls inside and told me he was giving me the last drops of sunshine before nighttime. Yay, a visit with Jill! Sophie almost never smiles like this and it made us so happy to see HER so happy! It’s so nice to do regular (non-hospital or intensive Sophie-care) activities. Laith is back to building and creating. He made us a beautiful farm table with benches for our back porch!
Halloween: Ladybug Sophie and Black Ghost Lucas (he came up with the costume on his own).Mira recognized him right away- and to his chagrin, wasn’t scared of him at all. This photo is so incredibly cute! Sorry Lucas, you’re still huggable and adorable no matter what you look like!
