Here's Nonna doing an Italian nursery rhyme for Luca and Lucia. It goes:
dove sei stata?
Cose ti ha dato?
Pan' e' formaggio
Cos' hai bevuto?
L'aqua del mare
Sputa la fuori che ti fa male!
Cute little hand
where have you been?
I've been to Nonna's
What did she give you?
Bread and cheese
What did you drink?
Spit it out for it will make you sick!
Those wacky Italians!
We decided to take Norah, Bree, and Ethan to the fireworks downtown GR. I don't think I have ever been so hot since a mission trip to Mexico in 1993 where I had to wear pants or long skirts while working. I was sweating just sitting there at 10:30 at night! It was about 98 degrees at that time. Anyway, here's Norah getting ready to watch the show, which was great! She loved it! But, keep in mind that this is 10:30 at night, and she had been swimming all day, so she is EXHAUSTED! Can't you see it on her face?
We went to MI for the 4th of July week, and boy are we glad we did!!!!! Aside from getting to introduce Susannah to Chiara's family members, we also got to hang out in Nonna's pool while the temperatures were 100+ and HUMID!
Luke LOVED the pool--he is quite fearless. He especially loves to do "BIG JUMPS" with his daddy!

Age: 1 month
Weight: 11 pounds exactly
Length: 22.25 inches
I like: eating and sleeping, taking baths, and being swaddled by daddy
Skills: I might be smiling socially (we are still not 100% sure it's not gas!) and I have cooed a few times! I can hold my head up for a few seconds, too!
Susannah had her 1 month doctor's appointment--and she did really well!
Norah and Luca did pretty well too, considering we were trapped in a little 6 foot x 6 foot room for about 30 minutes!
Here are Luca and Norah providing moral support to Susannah just before she gets her vaccines.
Lamb's farm has a little train that goes around the property. Of course Luca could not call the day complete without taking a ride on the train.
James said that while we was excited to ride the train, Luca seemed a little scared when it actually started moving!
