Isaac Update

Isaac is talking all the time, long-winded babbles that get louder if he thinks you're not listening to him or if he gets excited because he sees that you are listening and encouraging him. His first word was "ah goo," by the way. His talking is a series of ahs and ohs and every now and then he'll get really high-pitched or let out a squeal. It's absolutely the cutest and most entertaining thing ever.

He's holding his head up pretty well, although he's still not quite ready for his Bumbo seat. During tummy time, he'll use his legs to push himself forward, and he does the same when he's on his back. And when he plays in his bouncy seat, his legs are constantly kicking and moving. My parents insist that he'll be crawling, walking and talking all before the age of one.

Also, he's found his feet. They haven't made it into his mouth yet, but it's been hilarious watching him discover these new objects, to see how they move and to find out: they're attached! It started with him just staring at them for long periods of time. (I have an adorable photo of him staring at his feet that I'll have to remember to post.) Then, he'd try to grab a hold of him. Now that he's learned how to grasp them, he's almost always clinging to them, usually the left hand to the right foot and vice verse. Even when I change his diaper, he's always reaching for his feet. I have a feeling that soon he'll be reaching for his feet but find something else!

He's sleeping well, and we're still co-sleeping and loving it. He wakes up once or twice, sometimes even three times, during the night to nurse, but it doesn't bother me anymore since I don't get out of bed. We just nurse in bed and we both fall right to sleep almost as soon as we've woken up. And since he's been going to bed earlier and earlier (now usually between 8 and 9pm), I have a little bit of extra time in the evenings to spend with John and get things done around the house. I still go to bed around 10 or 11pm, though.

All in all, we are very happy and healthy!

Hey, Wilder's first word was "ah goo" too! We named one of his little stuffed animals (a horse) agoo. Glad he's doing so well.

Sounds like our kiddos are about the same age - aren't baby boys the best??
