Family Update!

I realized that not only have I not been updating the blog as often, I also haven't been keeping ya'll up to date with everything. So first thing's first. Isaac is talking like crazy! Early Steps ends at three so he'll be evaluated soon to see if he will need to continue speech. He is speaking sentences on his own and his annunciation improves daily. Some of my favorite sentences from him so far:

"Omi, you have to listen to me."
"It's Isaac's turn for tv."
"Mooooooooommmmmyyyyyyy...what you doing??"

He's so much fun :)

Next, I just started a new job. And I mean JUST. Today was my second day. It's a clinical position at Children's Hospital in New Orleans. It's completely different from what I was doing, but I feel like I'm learning so much. I also work better hours which makes life at home a lot easier. I've been busy with my nutrition blog as well: ABC's of Mealtime. If you haven't checked it out already, please do. And don't be afraid to comment! It keeps me motivated.

Andrew just finished his summer classes, so now he'll be staying at home with Isaac until they go back to school. He's also waiting tables as a side gig :) He's working hard on subjects that I hate: Calculus and Physics. I told him I can help with Nutrition 101. HAHA.

Our family has been awesome helping us with Isaac. We had a couple weeks when camp ended and we didn't have a sitter. We are SO very blessed to have family that can help. I hope all is well with everyone. Here is a pic of Isaac just for fun :)

Fourth of July Weekend!

This year for the Fourth of July, we spent a lot of day with family. On Sunday we had a BBQ at my cousin's house. Isaac played in the pool with his cousins and daddy got to go frogging! (Funny story).

They were buddies that day!

The next day we went out on the boat with Tat, Omi, Goddie, and more cousins! We were in Slidell this time. We had a blast :)

Isaac's New "Cousin"

Tonight Isaac's Tio and his Tia G came by with their new puppy. Isaac had a blast with her even though he got a little scared at times. Right now, we're calling her Sandy (or "Sibby" as Isaac says)...but not sure if the name is final. Look how cute!

He's getting there...

Ok, up until this point I have refrained from discussing potty training. It's a sore subject because Isaac was just not interested for the longest time and well, I'm not the most patient person. I've tried what people have told me: reading books, running water, singing songs, Elmo's Potty Time, letting him run around with only a brief...not of it works. Until now. Randomly while we had family over, he decided to tell grandma that he had to poo poo and he went with no problem. Later on he tinkled with no problem. So I bought more briefs and he's at least open to sitting on the potty so that makes me a happy camper. And of course, seeing his tiny little body in a brief is adorable as well! Here's a pic of him in his briefs and he's wearing his "popas" (flip flops). haha. Happy Weekend to all!
