Dear Noah:




We made it over to my sister Melissa's house to visit Saturday afternoon and evening. Noah and his cousin Audrey had a blast playing together......well...we all did. We really enjoyed the visit a lot. The pictures above were cute....Noah and Audrey were snuggling on the sofa together watching movies....this made my brain temporarily flash forward as they looked a bit too grown up here....and I could envision Noah with his girlfriend someday with his arms around her like that. WOW!

In most of the photographs I took he had his arms around her......but rarely had his hands touching her...remnants of the constant reminders left over from his teachers from his prior public school days and us ......always constantly telling him "hands off" or "everyone has their space" and to "not touch people too much" (because he used to love to give hugs and touch a lot and the teachers at school did not like that and wanted to teach him immediately that THIS would be unacceptable social behavior). PLUS he rarely "grasps" things or presses his hands OPEN and flat on a person or object...he tends to always have his hands in fists or his thumb tucked into his fist... He did snuggle with Audrey and they were giggling a lot. Here is a videoclip of them playing footsie under the blanket...hilarious.....



we had a great time. The cat was a trip too....he would make a good halloween cat.....all black with the coolest eyes! Noah and the cat really clicked which thrilled him to no end!

We ended up ordering pizzas for supper......more visiting...more playtime and movies for the kids......Noah loved his visit too because they live close to a RR crossing....he was in heaven checking out the trains every 20 minutes to 1 hour as they flew in and back out of town. On the way home we captured a videoclip of the train as we timed it perfectly for the RR crossing to come down and we waited on a train. It was dark but he was so excited....with the lights and signals and horn blasting:

Good evening,
So glad you girls were able to visit and the kids had so much fun. Nice that Noah was able to catch a glimpse of the train up close and at night. I bet he was thrilled.
Love you both.
