Isaac's Birthday Party

Just wanted to post a few of my favorite pictures of Isaac's birthday party from today. We had a great time at the Mount Hermon field. Happy Birthday Isaac!

Happy Birthday Isaac John!

Isaac is one year old today.

It's weird to think that 365 days ago, at almost this exact moment, we were at the hospital about to experience the amazing miracle that is birth. I had just taken a hot shower during "transition," and afterward asked for a Q-tip...because I always clean my ears out with a Q-tip after a shower. Everyone who was there laughed at my request, and in just seconds came another contraction. Isaac was born about half an hour after I got out of the shower at 7:35 am.

What a year this has been and what a joy Isaac has been to us. The Hebrew meaning of Isaac is "laughter," and he definitely lives up to that name. We have had so much fun having this boy in our lives and in our house!

Simply for posterity sake, I thought I would list some of the things Isaac does at one year old.

At one year, Isaac...

-almost walks. He has been taking 2, 3, or 4 steps but I wouldn't quite say he is "walking" But it will happen soon.
-LOVES his sister Olivia. Most mornings, he wakes up before she does and he tries to go into her room repeatedly. When she does wake up, he seems to enjoy going to her bed and playing there while she adjusts to being awake.
-signs "all done" by waving his hands in the air. He hasn't figured out the sign for "more," but instead he just screams and bangs his head on the back of his high chair.
-loves to feed himself.
-takes 2 naps a  day and generally sleeps through the night.
-says "mama" and seems to attach meaning to it.
-is still a "mommy's boy."
-always tries to put socks and shoes on his feet, regardless of who in the family said shoes belong to.
-sits and actually plays with toys, something his sister never really did (and still really doesn't do as she is constantly moving).
-plays with cars, making the "vrrmm" sound, even though no one really showed him how to do that.

Long Overdue Post

Ok so I started this post but never finished here it is and I'll start a new one today! (is that weird?)

I'm not sure if there's many people out there that read my blog (except my mom - thanks Mom!), but just in case...I've got some long overdue news.

We're pregnant!!!

And when I say long overdue, I mean really long overdue. As in I'm in my third trimester and our due date is September 22. It hasn't been a secret for a long time in any sense, but it's just that I haven't made my way over here to blogspot to do a post. Until now.

We are SUPER excited about being pregnant, going through the childbirth experience again, and most of all having a new baby BOY. And Olivia is really excited to be a big sister.

Happy Anniversary!

It's hard to believe this picture was taken six years ago today. Thanks Peter Thomsen for some great photographs from our wedding day.
