Almost Three

I keep referring to Isaac as 2 1/2, but he’s not so much 2 1/2 as he is ALMOST THREE. Holy moly, how did that happen? Of course, if you ask him he’ll tell you he’s six :). Or today, “I’m forty, Mama”. Um, no.  He did tell me at nap time the other day…

Fun with Daddy

Isaac loves to throw the football with Daddy.  He gets the larger foam football and the smaller LSU ball and then instructs Daddy to throw his ball at the same time as Isaac throws his.  Isaac throws and ducks, simultaneously…which is hilarious to watch! Daddies are so much fun :). Hanging out after church: Flying!…

Sledding!

This was yesterday: Today, it was even more fun because Daddy was home! He wanted to try sledding down the yard after a while.  It’s nowhere near as steep, but the idea of sledding right into the woods appealed to him for some reason.  There were considerably more trees he could run into, so we…

Merry Christmas!

Isaac enjoyed decorating the tree this year, but was mostly interested in dismantling it, lights and all. Last weekend, we went to a farm down the street that has a “North Pole” walk in the woods, and a Santa, plus free hot chocolate and cookies.  It was a blast, and a walk in the woods…

Advent is here!

Isaac was very excited about the Advent wreath that appeared on our table this morning.  He was a little confused about why we weren’t lighting all the candles yet, and then wanted to blow out the purple one we did light over and over, haha.  I kept telling him “It’s not a birthday cake, silly!”.…

2 1/2

If you ask Isaac how old he is, sometimes he’ll tell you he’s two.  Other times he’ll tell me he’s four.  What, we’re just skipping three now altogether??  And then the other day, talking about his neighbor friend, he told me “No, I’m nine and L. is 1!” after I told him L. was older.…

our little baseball player

This kid has talent.  He can really hit the ball, whacking it over the car, down the driveway, or directly at Mommy or Daddy, haha. It cracks me up sometimes, because he knows how to direct his hits.  He’ll line himself up and tell Daddy, “Hittin’ the ball at Mommy!”.  Let’s pretend he means to Mommy…

My big boy talks and talks and talks

Someone will actually smile when I ask him to now!  Whoohoo!  He doesn’t always smile *at* the camera, but hey, I’ll take what I can get. Isaac is 28 months now, and I wanted to write down some of the cute things he’s doing and saying lately, before I forget. He’s still enamored with Peter…

lately (in pictures)

Someone was digging in my veggie basket the other day, stealing an onion and a beet to cook in his little kitchen.  Seriously, this boy is going to end up a chef.  I caught him today, dragging a chair over to the (big) stove with his little frying pan, looking like he was about to…
