So much to do; so little time...
Isaac is clapping(!!!) now, and he says "na-na" which I think is his adaptation of "no-no." He's learning! He says "mama," "baba," and "dada" like crazy. I can't ever seem to get a picture of him when he's clapping, much less a video.
I sent this picture to Heath while he was on the mountain this past week. I wanted to show him how I let Isaac drive his truck while he was gone. ;-)
I caught him in the bathtub playing with his shampoo bottles. He stayed in there forever playing. Hey, sometimes you do whatever it takes to keep them in one place and out of everything.
I made this picture around when he turned ten months old, but I haven't shared it. Have I mentioned how much he loves the drums?
He still has only eight teeth, but he’s been acting like he’s about to cut one, or two, or twelve, here lately.
He started sleeping through the night about a month and a half ago. He was going to sleep around 9:30 and waking up around 6:30. Wetting through his diapers stopped, too! Wow. What a blessing!! Well, that all changed this past week. I’m not sure what’s going on. He has started waking up and standing at the edge of his crib, crying for me to come get him. He will usually fall back asleep within a couple of minutes, but lying him back down is a struggle. He wants to be held! So it’s this endless struggle of me picking him up, rocking him, going back to sleep, lying him back down, crying, picking him up, rocking him, etc. Finally, last night he went to sleep after I gave him a bottle.I was bound and determined not to give him one because I didn’t want him to get into that habit again. Yuck! What do I do? What have I done? I was almost in tears thinking about all the progress we had made! Sometimes I feel like it’s one step forwards and two steps backwards with his sleep situation.
There’s still no sign of him walking any time soon. He loves to crawl. He knows he can fly when he crawls, so why try to walk?
He eats anything now. He loves noodles, cheese, fruit, soups, gravy and biscuit, spaghetti, fettuccine alfredo, vegetables, etc. It’s so nice having him to eat the food I cook for the whole family. This saves a lot of time.
He loves spending time outside, especially if it involves helping his daddy in the yard.
I can’t believe the next time I write about him he will be one year old!
