On a happier note, Heather has been learning so much! A couple weeks ago as she was coloring, she started saying "e" (sounds like "eh") over and over again. I went in to see what she was doing, and she had figured out all by herself how to draw/write an "e!" I was super impressed. I got it on camera, and posted it just for you grandma! ;) Since then, she has noticed letters in her scribbling, but she has not been able to reproduce them like she can "e." It's amazing, and I don't know what we did to teach her.
Although Heather has had her rough moments, she continues to brighten our days with her laughter and overall cuteness. Here is a video of her doing her new water trick. (There is also a snippet of Josh at the end.)
An explanation about the eye: We have no idea what happened! We got home from church on Sunday, Daniel and I were in the kitchen getting lunch ready, and Heather ran into the front room to play. Immediately, we heard a big bang followed by crying. I ran in the front room to find Heather lying on the floor crying. I am pretty confident she hit her head on the window sill going full speed. What it looked like to me is that she tripped on Molly (a little person, and the only thing on the floor at the time). Anyway, it looks really bad, and I'm a little embarrassed to take her out in public, as anyone that doesn't have kids will probably think I am abusive (those that do have kids will know that kids just have a lot of bumps and bruises a lot anyway...still it is pretty bad). Here's a close up:

Josh smiled (for real) for the first time yesterday. I tried to capture it, but this is what I got:
|"Who is this weird lady, and what is she trying to say?"|
|half a smile|
I promise, I am done blabbing now. :) We love you all and hope that you are all well and safe!
