Isaac is 8 months old!!

First, thank you to Jody for the idea to put the sign in a picture frame. Seems that Isaac wasn't too crazy about it though. haha. Here he is =) I love him. He has truly made these last 8 months the best 8 months of my life.






Babbling

So about 2 weeks ago Isaac started babbling like he's trying to talk. He makes "dada" and "baba" noises. It sounds like he says "baba" more but I think it's because we call him Bubba and Bubs. I try to get him to say dada because he doesn't sound like he's at all ready to say mama =)

Sometimes...

I can't take it. Ugh, I think I may love him too much. Is that even possible? I worry about every little thing and sometimes I have no idea how I'm going to let him grow up without me freaking out over every little thing. He's starting to say "baba" and "dada" now (He says "baba" a LOT and we think it's bc we call him bubs and bubba). He may not know what he's saying...but we hear him saying it. Tonight he also crawled into the sitting position. It prompted me to look at old pictures of bubs and cry. Every moment with him is exactly where I want to be. Sometimes during rough days at work I go in the bathroom and cry because I miss him. I hate to be away from him. I really don't know what I'm going to do when I have to let go...ugh. I swear...I love him so much...I never thought I could love someome so much. Hate to sound cliche, but it's just the truth.
Looking back...

Austin's Army Part II

So we had the Angelman Walk this past weekend and we had a great time with the family. Austin is such a blessing to this family...it's awesome to see how far he has come! After the walk we had a picnic. It was a lot of fun and the food was great =). Then we went over to Ashley and Chad's. They just got this water slide for the kids so we took Isaac in for a little bit, seems like he had a lot of fun. We can't wait to take him to the pool for the first time. Stay tuned for those pics/videos!

Oops...

Please excuse my layout right now. It's the new and the old put together because I haven't figured out how to do exactly what I want. Thanks! hehe.

UPDATE: It's ok...I finally figured it out. I can now move on with my life. =)

My First Mother's Day!

So we just had a great weekend-and I had a great first Mother's Day! I had some relaxation and we also had some fun. We did a little arts and crafts on Sunday morning which I always love and then we went to a nearby park. It was a lot of fun to run around with Molly and to watch Isaac continuously grab at grass. haha. I truly feel blessed to have him in my life. He makes me smile everyday...I know it sounds cliche but seriously, being a mom is a feeling that is unexplainable! Hope all the other mommies out there had a great day!

Dinnertime=playtime

So, Isaac is doing really good eating his foods but he's decided that he wants to start grabbing and playing wtih this food now. I want him to learn to feed himself but he keeps grabbing the spoon on the part with all the food so he makes a mess! Check it out...

Isaac's new bathtub

So Molly kept eating Isaac's bathtubs and we decided to invest in something a little bigger. We bought him this inflatable duck. It's so cute because it's like his own little pool. And the beak quacks! =)

Isaac's Dedication

A couple of weeks ago Isaac got dedicated at the Vineyard in Kenner. It was a beautiful ceremony and a great chance for our family to get closer to God. I know I say this a lot but everyday I thank God for giving us Isaac. He truly has changed our lives for the better. After the dedication we had a BBQ. Thank you so much to everyone that helped to organize this-especially my dad and Holly. We also want to thank Jenny and Seg for being Isaac's godparents. Our hope is that Isaac will grow up and will have you both as special people in his life to help guide him in the right direction. We love ya'll!! My pictures came out crappy but hopefully I'll get some better ones and repost.
All the grandparents...bad quality =(
Horrible quality-I'll upload better ones later.

Well, this year we are able to participate in the Angelman Walk. For those who don't know, our nephew Austin has Angelman Syndrome. Click here to donate or to find out more about Austin. We are so excited to be in Houston now so that we can be here to participate and to support the cause with family. We love you Austin!

Isaac is 7 months old!!

Ok, so apparently it's impossible for me to put a piece of paper next to Isaac without him destroying it. I also couldn't get him to sit up and hold the sign (and be able to hold it). He also wasn't feeling that well this day. Turns out he had roseola and he had a cold...still does a little bit. So in these pics he's relaxing. He's doing great overall. He doesn't keep still anymore and you can barely hold him unless he's sleepy. They said at daycare all he does is roll and scoot on the floor. He's also eating 3 servings a vegetables a day (2 at lunch and 1 at dinner). He's also eating rice cereal at breakfast. We're gonna try squash next and then start him on fruits. He's also sitting up for much longer periods on his own. He's also holding his bottle on his own (unless you show him you'll do it...he's lazy like that).I can't believe how fast he's growing up.


Notice the crinkled paper...
