Grandma has patiently waited for photos of the kids.
Much easier said than done! Once a week Isaiah sets out to try to get a nice picture. These are some of the cute ones. All adorable, but...........a "good" one?!
When he doesn't get "his" way he cries. Its almost comical because he uses it to detract us. But we tell him "Your not dying Jakie! It's o.k." He will start getting his PT at the clinic this week instead of at home. We expect lots of tears. Silly boy!
He is a perfectionist with his school work, he gets so tense for fear of doing it wrong. He'd rather not do it than fail. We tell him over and over he did it just right! :o)
This week he went to the dentist with Tom and Noah. As soon as Tom got him out of the van Moses ran to push Noah's wheelchair. Tom stood behind Moses and helped Mosie push his big brother's wheelchair with him.
He is incredibly smart, and is respectfully interested in everything. The other 4 boys are still kind of opportunists, they do what we are doing, or watch us, or wait to see what to do.
But Moses immediately finds things to do anywhere he is. He explores, asks questions, (he is nonverbal but has great body language- facial expressions) points, and runs to get "his" things! We just love his enthusiasm!
Oh what JOY he brings!
This photo of Jacob we'll send to Grandma. :o)
It's always so sweet to see Pauly happy. But sometimes his autism makes him happy in a manic way and we lose touch with him. It is hard to have to ask him to stop laughing. It becomes a cycle.
Moses wearing Isaiah's Bowler. Yesterday Isaiah had a tie on so Mosie wore one clipped to his Tshirt! :o)
Julius can be cocky when you ask him to do anything. He gets bored easily. He has so much potential, but he has so many behaviors that get in the way.
He knows he's cute. He has that Bulgarian confidence we love! He still has PICA. (eating things that are not edible) We have to check his mouth constantly, he's faster than we are.
Sometimes taking a picture with 2 in works better! One will look at the camera!!
Our little man Noah. When he came at 9 1/2 he looked like a baby! What a handsome young man he is and strangers love his smile!
Even if they feel awkward trying to relate to him on his level, they all melt when he smiles at them!!
And they adore him! He shows them what boys like. And they are there for Isaiah when he's overwhelmed by his 3 bossy teenage sister! Noah and Isaiah are both 13 (teens) now. Noah is older ;o)
Pauly too is smaller in stature from his heart condition. The other 4 boys have super healthy hearts!
(Mercy was hiding :o(
Thank You Heavenly Father for these precious Souls. We PRAISE Your Holy Name!
