An Update in Photos!
Here is Yehoshua, scooting along on his tricycle. We got him this tricycle last year during the feast of Tabernacles, and he still can't properly ride it. He has a lot of fun with it anyway!
This morning we made a trip to the pediatrician's office. Details could be a little sensitive, but Yehoshua will most likely be having a minor surgery in the next couple weeks. We'll know more after an appointment on Tuesday. If you think of us, please keep him in prayer! We really appreciate everyone's prayer support :).
Yehoshua had just had a bath in this photo, and was being so cooperative as I sat him on my desk for a few pictures! I was asking him to touch his cheek for this shot. :) He did all sorts of things for me, touching his belly, putting his hands on his head, etc... So sweet. I love having the little guy for my buddy!
One cute thing Yehoshua likes to do, is pretending he's Eliyahu. He asks to be put in the swing, or in Eliyahu's car seat, or climbs into Eliyahu's walker, and then sticks one of Eliyahu's toys in his mouth ;). One day he was in the swing, and I told him I would "pretend to be Yehoshua". I ran up to him and gave him a smothering hug and kiss. Then I snatched his toy away and ran off. ;)
Yehoshua talks more and more these days... today when we offered him a second piece of pepperjack cheese he said, "It's too hot!" It's so interesting to me to finally be able to understand more of what he's saying.
Eliyahu, at 6 months, is turning into quite the little mischief-maker! He can get around in his walker, and manages to make his way towards the trashcan or telephone cord without fail! He rolls over and wiggles and tries to scoot around... he's such a little sweetheart and we love him so much! It's neat how a person can love each of their children so much. I don't understand how it's works, but two children just multiplies our love for them rather than dividing it. :)
And to end, here is a photo my sister Bonnie took of our brother Phillip (21) holding Eliyahu. They were matching in orange shirts that day. ;) Phillip is good at calming Eliyahu while I am finishing up a music lesson or garden work, and now when Eliyahu fusses, we call out, "Phillip! Eliyahu needs you!" even when I'm planning to stop and feed or change Eliyahu ;)
