Shorts, the Dog

We spent a lovely Monday evening with James's Aunt Martha and Uncle Eric and their family. We had a lovely FHE lesson given by Caroline and enjoyed some great conversation. While there, Isaac met a new friend, whose name is Shorts. Luckily for us - and Isaac- Shorts is a very patient, easy-going dog who very kindly allowed Isaac to poke, prod, and pull at him throughout the night.
Isaac loved it, and hopefully Shorts is not too damaged from the encounter. Here are a few shots of the new friends:

Isaac also enjoyed stealing Shorts's toys. What a sweet, patient dog. Hopefully we can teach Isaac to be sweet and patient back.

Growing Up

Isaac is growing up - he's got two teeth now. Sharp ones. It is hard to get pictures of baby teeth though, so this is the best one I got:

You can see 'em, right?

Isaac and His Friend in the Mirror

We have a big mirror, courtesy of Grandma and Grandpa Wilde. I still haven't figured out where exactly to put it, so it's been hanging out in the play room. This happens to work out quite nicely for little Isaac, since he loves to admire his reflection. And who can blame him, handsome man that he is?

As you can see, he also adores playing in that curtain.


James usually gets up and goes to work before I wake up (fully) in the morning and get myself and Isaac dressed. So, one day last week, James came home from work and was holding Isaac and I just had to laugh when I saw how closely their outfits matched. So of course I made them pose on the couch for some cute matchy-matchy pictures.

Welcome to the world, baby girl

Milenna Jean Deal was born to Cyndi and Guy today, March 8th, at 1:43pm. She weighed 7 lbs 11 oz and was 20.5 inches long. She is the most gorgeous baby girl ever.

Welcome to the world, and welcome to our family, beautiful niece.

I would like to formally apologize for my lack of blogging lately. I just realized it has been about two months since I last posted anything on here. I hang my head in shame. I am making a goal right now to do better, and I will try to post at least once a week.

Isaac is six months old now. (!) He is almost crawling, he has a tooth (well, almost), and he is gobbling up solid foods with gusto. We love our little cutie pie.

I wanted to post a video, but I can't remember our YouTube password, so I'll have to wait until tomorrow and ask James. He is sleeping right now.

So - here's to better blogging.
