If a picture is worth a thousand words, than be prepared for several thousand words in this post, because it's brimming with a whole bunch of pictures that have been storing up on my computer in the past few weeks!
These first four are compliments of Rachel Horvath, the amazing young lady and dear, sweet friend who came and stayed with our family during and after our big move for a total of four weeks. I seriously don't know what I would have done without her! She is the true definition of kindness, servant-heartedness, and cheerfulness, and is incredibly capable at all things house and children oriented!
Rachel with Isaac and Josiah one Sunday morning at church.
Josiah was a special little buddy of Rachel as I was often tending to the new baby during those first several weeks of being here in Ohio.
We love Miss Rachel!
Behind the scenes of Operation Move the Piano!
Josiah has some big shoes to fill! :)
I love this facial expression of sheer delight with himself for putting on daddy's shoes!
Our big Adoniah boy, now 3 months old!
Another sweet friend, Sarah (Earnhart) Robbins popped in for a visit recently after we both discovered we are only living 4 hours away from each other in Ohio! Sarah's husband is currently deployed with the Navy, so she had the availability to come for a few days to meet the family. (It's been four years since we've seen each other!) Sarah helped us host an open house for our church while she was here, and was a lot of fun to hang out with doing every day things on the other days!
Here is Nathan raking millions of leaves in our backyard in preparation for the open house.
One of our church friends serenading us at the piano during the open house.
Meanwhile, back during every day life, Isaac discovered a way to carry his doll in a baby carrier like he sees me do with Adoniah sometimes!
I was so proud of his creativity!
He is such a good Daddy to his doll. :)
We had a beautiful rainbow one afternoon. I tried to capture it on camera, but the window screen makes it a little obscured.
Adoniah was looking so cute one day sitting up like a big boy in his Bumbo chair. I tried to take his picture and ended up getting a whole host of different facial expressions!
Isaac came to me with his pants on his head and excitedly proclaimed, "I'm a goat, Mommy!" I laughed so hard and had to take his picture!
My little boys after bath time. They love to run around in their diapers!
Josiah: Catch me if you can!
Here is Isaac modeling a new hat he got in the mail from a kind friend back in Texas.
Josiah eagerly explores a big box of clothes sent from Grandmommy and Granddaddy!
My little champ!
In closing, here is an excerpt from a video I sneakily took of Isaac one afternoon as he walked around the house singing praises to the Lord. Moments like these are ones I cherish!
