Thankful Thursday

~Jason's family visiting last weekend. It was so fun to sit back and watch them meet Alayna for the first time and see her do her magic. She certainly can wrap people around her little finger in a matter of seconds.

~Sibling random acts of kindness - Aidan sharing the last popsicle with Alayna when he really needed it as he didn't feel well, Alayna crawling up behind Aidan and snuggling him when he had a tummy ache earlier in the week, Aidan always wants to pick Alayna up if she gets hurt to sooth her, giggles galore coming from the playroom as the two of them play.

~Alayna taking 3 steps

~Speech explosion continues - Alayna is starting to drop signs for words, and is singing along with songs like Old McDonald, she will chime in with the "O" and the animal sounds, so cute!

~One final week of summer before Aidan starts school on the 13th, even though Alayna & I will be super sad to see him leave we are going to soak in the last bit of summer.

We hope your week has been wonderful. I love to hear your thankfuls, so please leave a comment and tell us what you are thankful for this week.

* This photo was taken during our worship service a few weeks ago by one of our church photographers, Kerry Erington. Alayna was enjoying the praise band and Courtney Heigele's singing. It was amazing, you couldn't help but lift your arms and praise God.

I'm thankful that we've been able to go through this adoption process. So I can get my little girl, because seeing all these cute girls is making me crazy!

We're thankful for random acts of sibling kindness at our house too :) LOVE the picture of Alayna, so precious.

I just canNOT get over that girl's speech and language skills. She is NOTHING short of a wonder.
I'm also MORTIFIED by the end of your post but thankful to be in any way connected to the cuteness of my sweet Laynaloo.
