Monster Man!

One of our nicknames for Isaac is "monster man". This is because he is our little monster who is into everything! Everyday he takes one more step.....pulling out all the Tupperware, pulling out all the newspaper, if he can get into a drawer he insists on pulling everything out. His new favorite thing is getting inside the cupboard. I have busted him doing this several times in the last couple of days.
This morning I had to be somewhere so Jeff came home from work to watch him and when I got home Jeff had Isaac standing on his own for about 20 seconds at a time! I cant even believe it, I just laughed the whole time while watching him stand on his own. It is so amazing how he can be so mobile.... hard to believe he has only been crawling since December 1st and now he is on the verge of walking!
Isaac is also teething big time. He has been a little fussy lately and he has been waking up in the night a little too. I think he is getting 2 more bottom teeth... this will be 8 teeth! Almost half way to a full set. In the pics I am adding today the one of him with the big tears are from the teething. Poor guy!
We are really enjoying swimming lessons, too. Isaac is doing such a good job. I will have to get a video uploaded of him going under water. He is very brave and I hope he loves swimming as much as I did growing up.

Playing ball-

Isaac loves to play ball! It is really cute and fun. We play a little everyday. I had my friend, Nikki record a little clip of us playing. As soon as he sees the red light on the video camera his every goal in life is to get the camera. So even though he is staring at the camera we got a few tosses on video. It amazes me everyday at all the new things he can do.

Dance Dance Dance!

Isaac loves to dance. Everytime anything comes on TV or the radio that has some kind of beat, he is dancing! It is really cute and addicting to watch. I am not sure where he got his moves.... Mom? Dad? What do you think??

Ms. Pac-Man

I think about what our (Jeff and Me) life was like before pregnancy and Isaac and I will tell you one thing.... we would not be sitting home on a Saturday night! We were very social. We were always out with friends and having way too much fun.

Nowadays the highlight of our Saturday night is a few games of Ms. Pac-man. We have the old arcade game in the basement and we bust out a couple games. Jeff is really good and he has a really high record. He normally hits at least 130,000 points, can you beat that? I am working on getting a higher record. I hit my high score tonight-49,880 points! I am catching him.

A local celebrity!

I am not sure if you have seen Isaac around town and in other local communities.... He is on a billboard in Sioux Falls and he even made the paper in Brandon!

His Uncle Joe has recently started his own State Farm Insurance Agency and Isaac was at his ribbon cutting. Isaac snuck in the picture for the ribbon cutting and it was published in the paper! He sure is a lucky little guy. We are going to have to get a copy of it from his Uncle and save it for when he gets older. Joe has been pretty busy with work and if you are looking for anything State Farm has to offer, don't forget to keep Joe in mind. Here is his website..... http://www.joeoliveragency.com/ Even though Joe is so busy at work he always has extra time to watch Isaac. Tonight he is heading over so we can celebrate Mandy's birthday...
Happy Birthday Mandy!!!

Messy Man

Isaac is destroying the house room by room! I feel like I just get done putting everything away and I walk into the next room and he has that one torn apart, too! My life has changed dramatically since he started crawling. I miss the days when he just laid in one spot. I do have to admit we have so much fun playing and laughing. His favorite is when he crawls and I get behind him and chase him... he thinks it is so much fun. I love it...
Not only is he into messing up the house, he tends to get really messy at meal times, too. He went a little crazy tonight with the Spaghetti... It was everywhere. We went straight to the bath to clean up after dinner tonight. He is a pretty crazy little man... Did I mention he is messy??

First Word-

I forgot to mention in my earlier message that Isaac said his first word yesterday-- MAMA!!! It is a pretty great feeling. Now he crawls around the house saying.... mamamamamama..... It is not getting old one bit and don't think it ever will.

Blog on!

I decided I am ready to become a blogger. So many things happen everyday in our world and I wanted to be able to share it. This seems to be the best idea. I am going to still do our baby website but probably gradually move everything over to the blog.


I am sure the main topic of this blog will be all about Isaac.


He is changing so much! Our biggest accomplishment is that he is finally sleeping through the night, it only took us 9 months to get it down! Since he has been sleeping through the night I have been able to get him on a normal nap schedule - I forgot what it was like to sleep for so long at once. This morning I woke up at 7 and still had not heard from him so I went to check on him and he was awake, but just laying there chewing on his blanket and entertaining himself. I love that he can do that now.


Isaac has so many new tricks too. He loves to clap. He can do "So Big". He loves to climb up the stairs. At swimming lessons on Monday he went under water several times and did not even cry. Another thing is that he is learning to walk all over the house, with my help of course. He also loves to play with Ozzy, our dog. They play and he laughs and laughs and laughs! It is pretty cute. But one new thing Isaac has developed is that when someone screams Isaac gets pretty upset about it. He gets really sad and usually starts crying.
