Merrill Millett (77 years), Grant (55 years), Leah (52 years), Nolan (13 years)

Leah has been researching how to help Nolan with his parentage. She’s also put him into counseling with Alice London, which has been helping more than Nolan will admit. Just a year prior, she felt she was losing Nolan, even when they were together, his thoughts were festering on things none of them could change. She’s greatly relieved he seems to be getting the help he needs to accept his circumstances.

Grant’s never been a proactive on anything in all his life, so Leah is surprised when he takes initiative with Alice. He calls to confirm appointments, and he calls to see how Nolan is doing. He even asks for tips on things he can do.

While they don’t have a loveless marriage, it’s not without its struggles, and this change in Grant warms Leah’s heart. For all their marriage, she’s felt a second behind Grant’s parents as he never felt strong enough to take a stand before.

Alex came home for the weekend from EU to have an updated family portrait taken. As soon as he finishes the term, he’ll be back home for the holidays, and Caroline can’t help but be happy to have her family back under one roof again, even if its only for a short period.

Quint and his new wife are determined to borrow the kids for a week at a time; apparently Miriam enjoys playing house with my children. I’ve obliged, but I’m awfully lonely with the empty house.

I pull longer shifts at the diner when they are away.

Shira and Wyatt have the most difficult time adjusting to the new house and step-family. As much as Shira enjoyed her new sister, Elodie, sometimes she wanted peace and quiet. Asher never grated her nerves the way Elodie could without doing anything in particular; she wasn’t sure if it was a twin thing or an Elodie thing.

She talked during movies too, they both loved reading and movies, and Elodie talked through them entirely. How could one enjoy a film if you prattled on the entire time?
