Grandpa Richard and Grandma Jane came from Florida to visit us and brought their hot weather with them! We had a couple of scorchers..for Seattle anyway, but enjoyed our pool in the backyard and lots of popsicles! We had a great time with Grandpa and Grandma and did a lot of fun things together. Grandpa even bought me a fancy basketball net, which I helped him put together. Jilly had a great time too and even took a long walk with Grandpa, Mama posted the video below. Enjoy our pictures!

Jilly D here! I just turned 14 months old and I'm doing so much, something new everyday. I really love playing with my sister, she makes me laugh so hard. We wrestle like baby bear cubs and like to throw balls back and forth. I have learned how to sign "more" and "all done" which has been very helpful for Mama and Daddy to know what I need. I am walking a lot more now and can say "bye bye" and "Mama" and Nina and I have fun yelling back and forth at each other. Here is a video of me performing my new tricks.

Summer is in full swing here in Seattle and we were so grateful to have more of Mama's family here to share it all with us, Aunt Judi and Uncle Shel! We did so much together including lots of drawing, Aunt Judi is the best artist I've ever seen. We also went to a kids music class at the Seattle Symphony, where Jilly and I got to play with actual violins, cellos and keyboards. I was able to show Aunt Judi and Uncle Shel off to my friends and the Rabbi at my school's Family Shabbat Dinner too. Even though Jilly still is pretty attached to Mama and Daddy, she finally let Aunt Judi hold her on their last day here, that was a relief. Mostly we just had a wonderful time sharing our daily goings on with two very important people in Mama and Daddy's life. We miss them lots, here are some pics from our adventures.
