My Little Pumpkins

Avi is still on the mend, slowly but surely. His appetite is definitely back and the pain is slowly fading away. He has been begging to eat at his favorite restaurant on earth for days. His diet is still pretty limited and he's already lost a few pounds, so when we accidentally drove past it at dinner time and he was completely heart broken. So we decided to go back later and reward him.
After devouring the jello he moved on to all of his other favorites. If it was soft enough for him to eat it was on his plate. It didn't take long for him to clean his plate start a new one either. This wasn't much of a surprise. He's been doing this the last few days. He scarfs down his food and moving on to something else.

Tonight he wasn't in a great mood, but when Uncle Tom walked through the door his mood suddenly changed. He was hugging, smashing and crowding Tom as much as he could. He calmed down a bit so we could go outside to cook the burgers. He and Itai enjoyed a nice swing in the cool wind until Aileah joined us. Once she came out Avi was on the moved and she and Itai spent some time swinging together until they all went for a little walking adventure.
Once dinner was over Itai and Aileah decided to get better acquainted. Itai was very happy to have a little playmate. He's been trying like crazy to get Avi to participate in games, but hasn't been able to yet. He and Aileah made a game of chasing each other then running into a favorite hiding place. They were screeching as loudly as possible and laughing hysterically about it. Sadly, the they both became camera shy and stopped screaming as soon as they saw me.

Thanks Aileah's mom and dad for coming and bringing her with!
After Aileah and her parents left Avi wanted to try out a new use for the pumpkins. It turns out the pumpkins are not exactly the best shoes. And you know what they say, "Itai see, Itai do." Isn't that the phrase? Whatever it is, that's what happened.

It's so good to hear that Avi is on the mend! What a fun night spend with friends, and a fun friend for Itai. By the way, I love the picture of Itai's big grin -- he is getting so big! He looks a lot bigger than he did a few posts!

I love those cute, pumpkin-footed little boys (and their parents)! They're both growing up so much. I love that Itai and Aileah get along so well! What a fun game they created. well, as I understand it, Itai created that game. Glad you had a fun evening.

I'm so glad Avi is getting better and better. He looks pretty miserable in that first picture. That is a great picture of Itai with his huge smile.
