Christmas and the basement....

We took Isaiah out in the snow for the first time on Christmas Day...he liked it until we let him touch it and then he decided he didn't like the cold snow....
Our family Christmas photo...Isaiah's snowsuit...
Our flying baby! (Yes, I caught him)....he likes to go a little ways into the air, but not too high...


He really likes to play in boxes now....
Our newly nearly finished bedroom downstairs....we had to get it done so Kris & Ben had a place to stay...Our living room...we still have to get doors and finish some trim work...
Looking back up the the stairs...still have to finish the staircase too.....

This is pretty funny

These are pretty funny movies you can make on JibJab

Non-Crappy Starring You! eCards on JibJab

A lack of sleep among other things......

Well it has been a busy few weeks for us...Isaiah started eating real food and as a direct result has decided that the bathtub is the best place for bowel movements...bath times leave us in a constant state of anticipation and have tested our reflexes...I think Amy may have some of the best reaction times in the world now....


Isaiah wearing a shirt that Will wore when he was a baby...
One of the very few times I have been able to sit down and help Amy feed Isaiah
Getting ready for his bath.............
The office/spare room downstairs...Our family room....

The laundry/bathroom and our lovely staircase...
After a few coats of paint and getting the built-in bookcases installed and trimmed...

We found that you can make Isaiah laugh pretty hard if you "eat" his stomach....he laughs quite a bit once he gets going....

The basement is getting closer!!!

We officially have entered round 1 of the mudding and taping, with hopes that we will be able to put a Christmas tree downstairs (while it is still in season)...hopefully we can make that happen...

Fiona is getting a little bigger....

Isaiah & Averielle

We have been trying to use the bouncer to see if he really likes it, but we are thinking that it must be acquired taste like his stroller was....he can get his feet going pretty good, but his back is still not strong enough to do it for a long time.....
Heather also brought Averielle over for a little while and Isaiah actually sat with her on the couch for a while....it is funny to watch them notice each other and Isaiah tried to put the moves on....




Semi-disturbing, but also cute....blackmail for later in life if they actually ever date :)

Halloween....................

So it might be hard to tell exactly what it is, but we promise that it is in fact a giraffe...well, actually we have come to terms that it might be a horse..We already threw the packaging away and upon further inspection we are pretty sure it really is a horse...sorry for any confusion :)


We love the tux shirt...sort of like a "I'm here to party kind of thing".....

Basement and the baby

Well we definitely got some drywall on the walls and ceiling, I have a few pieces to finish up and then it is time to start the splendid duty of taping....it makes it feel a lot newer and just really different....We were goofing around with Isaiah while I was home for lunch and thought it would be pretty funny to see how he looks with our glasses on...he sort of looks like Chris Farley as Matt Foley on SNL....pretty stinkin funny though.....
He definitely did not like Amy's sunglasses though, nor was it quite as funny....

Family, basement, & Isaiah walking!

We went back to visit Amy's family for the weekend, and Isaiah got to meet a few more family members....


Isaiah with Amy's grandma
With her grandpa
Just trying to crawl around on the floor...he is getting closer...

Trying to eat his foot in the bathtub.....Our basement at the moment.....Amy's parent's are hopefully coming on Friday to help hang the rest of the drywall and get that all done....
Another view looking into the bedroom and the storage room.......
If you can watch this video, this is Isaiah actually trying to take a few steps...I think he is going to be a right hander.....He can pick his right leg up, but still has trouble taking his weight off of the left one.....

Updating....Sorry It has been a while....

Sorry we haven't put much up here recently...seems like everything is just going too fast...we are getting closer on the basement and actually hung the first sheet of drywall up tonight....hopefully that means it will be a quick process now and will be ready by Christmas....

Well Isaiah is officially 3 months old now....growing pretty fast too and definitely getting the drooling down.....seems like he soaks as many shirts as he does diapers...He weighed 14 lbs 7 oz. today and is stretching out to 26 1/2 inches long...

This is Isaiah with Averielle again...they have been spending a little bit of time together and they have finally started to notice each other as well....
We thought we were keeping his fingernails trimmed short enough, but I guess we were not....he scratched himself pretty good and didn't even seem to notice it....it is healing pretty well now and is actually mostly gone....

He gets this look a lot when we are holding onto him...seems like he is really ready to get moving, but he is not crawling yet as much as he tries...
He does this a lot now too...it's pretty cute and he likes to snuggle when he is tired...Wearing his new favorite outfit that Aunt Jess & Uncle Ben got him....

Grandpa's Birthday

Here are some pictures of Grandpa Horst's 90th Birthday. It was our first long trip with Isaiah and it went ok. Apparently when he sleeps for a long period in a car, he thinks it is fun to wake up several times during the night....other than that he was pretty good....

Here are a few pictures and you can watch the slideshow at the bottom or click here to see some more pictures....

Girlfriend?

Heather brought Averielle over for a playdate and so Heather and Amy could go to MOPS...Averielle is about 2 weeks older than Isaiah....she sits up a lot better though and can actually hold her head up...Isaiah is getting better, but still has a ways to go....

We also had a doctor's appointment and Isaiah was 25 inches long and 12 lbs 3 oz....although it is hard to tell since he is sort of scrunched down here....

Lots of Random Pictures

We took Isaiah outside to walk in the grass....We're not sure if he really liked the grass or not, but it looked cute...
We took a quick family photo since we got him all dressed up for church on Sunday....Amy got him a cute little outfit

He found a whole new world when he started following the mobile around his swing.....he seems to love fish...
We have been practicing getting him to repeat a few things....so far he can coo a little if we start it first...
