    I love it. πŸ™‚ Cora still signs “all done” with a wild flailing of her arms.

    Aww, what a lovely kid! It’s easy to take things for granted, so it’s lovely to read such an appreciative blog. I’m glad Valor is doing so well- he’s a credit to you both!

    Valor is so gorgeous and happy. I love reading Valor stories. I miss you guys, and am so thankful that you allow those of us who are far away to still be able to keep up with the family. Isaac just turned one and hasn’t uttered a word. He babbles when he’s content and he shrills and screams when he’s not. Abram (3) pretty much still does the same thing. Talking is not his forte.

    As usual, all of the pictures are wonderful, but I think my 2 favorites are the spilled cereal (the face he’s making absolutely kills me!) and wearing the giant shoes πŸ™‚

    Congrats on his first word!!!!

    Such a sweet post Abby! So excited to read the update…you two are doing a wonderful job. Looks like such a content little man.

    Our second daughter’s first word was also Wow. She even used it correctly. At nine months old she pulled herself to stand holding on to the bed rail and looked at us and said “Wow!” even using her dad’s inflection. It was hilarious!

    One of my foster kids is about the same age as Valor and I’ve been enjoying following his (and your) story.

    I love, love that last picture – too perfect! As you may know, /r/ phonetically has at least 4-5 more years before you worry about that one. If you were really wanting to “work on it” I’d focus on the frontal sounds (nasals like /m/ and /n/, labials like /b/ and /p/, and dentals like /f/ and /v/). Thanks for the great updates, I love reading about Valor!

    Great seeing the recent pics! He’s getting so big! Wow!!!

    This made me laugh, Abby, I love your style of writing, I think I say “wow” all the time….but I think it is timeless slang! Miss you three….you are also a great photographer, love that picture w/ the fall colors and Valor taking it all in.

    Awww…Valor is just a typical little boy. Their speech development seems a little behind the girls’. Austin’s first word was “bubble,” followed pretty closely by “stuck,” which is an odd first word, I think. To this day, he still says everything is “stuck” when he can’t grab it or get to it. πŸ™‚ Mama and then mommy will come all too soon…then, he’ll seem like he’s as old mentally as he looks physically (that boy is big!).

    He is SO BIG!
    Are you bringing that boy of yours back down for a visit anytime soon?
