Beautiful fall days
We have had some absolutely wonderful 60 degree days back home in the City! Now that the sewer/alley/water/street construction is OVER!!! (YEAH!!!!) we can eat dinner on the deck! :o)
Mercy likes to pace, so she's inspecting the area until her dinner is ready! She's a "eat and run" girl!! :o)
Still waiting!! She eats independently so she gets her own bowl and sits. But there's no table here! Not yet! This folds over into a table/bench!
Moses is in the play house! (from the 90s) He wants to eat at the play table!
We also have a nice big plastic picnic table.
What a big boy! He waits so nice! In fact all of the boys are so sweet and patient with us as we hustle to bring out the food!
Jacob does not like his dinner interrupted. We are still feeding him. He doesn't have the hand coordination yet.
BUT!!! NEWS FLASH!! Jacob took TWO steps walking on his own today!
Pauly has a special bowl with a handle on the side. We encourage him to hold it as he eats. With his autism he sometimes forgets he's eating and gets distracted by "tapping" his teeth with his spoon.
Julius our show off, eats circles around everyone! LOL! He likes lots of foods and things like pumpkin muffins. The others are quite finicky and may only eat some foods only if they are mixed in with things like potatoes or soup. Not Julius, he is a food connoisseur! He'd also love it if we took pictures of him only!! Silly boy!
Julius is bugging Noah here! Noah, always the love bug reacts in his typical fun Noah way! He is such a doll!
Noah is done eating so he crawled over to the playhouse. He's not walking on his own yet. But he does walk along the walls, furniture, etc. He just won't let go.
As the sun began to set the temps dropped. The boys didn't mind as much as Mercy. We all went back inside. It's such a blessing and a gift from God to have a nice place to eat outside! The Squirrels cleaned up for us! ;o)
