Isaac's Baptism

Isaac gave his heart to Jesus and was baptised at Carson's Chapel in the river this summer. He was so excited! We are very proud of him and his decision to follow Christ.

5 months old

Eli is such a big boy. He weighs 17.7lbs and is 27 1/2 inches long. He is now sitting... he has made it over 3 minutes plus without falling over. I went back to work on his 5 month mark... so sad. I miss my baby but know he is in great hands with my mom. Isaac is pumped and excited for fifth grade and ready to go back! Let's hope Eli starts sleeping better. This week he has done much better... sleeping in his crib from 930 until 330 when he eats and them back to sleep until 530 or 600.

Gelato = YUM!

Splurge...I found this at the grocery store last week......Caribbean coconut gelato

P.S. I hid it from Josh because he devours ice cream... he wasn't very happy when he found out!

Vegas baby!

We went to Vegas... with a baby!

Josh had a work conference so I tagged along and of course Eli had to come since he is not yet weaned. Isaac enjoyed a few days with his cousins and had a blast at Bible school at our church.

Eli did great on the plane ride. We gave him a bit of benedryl per the pediatrician's instructions, I put saline up his nose pre-take off, and attempted to nurse him during take off and landing. I think his wee ears were just fine!

We had an awesome room... thanks to a surprising upgrade. We could basically see all of Vegas from our 33rd floor suite at the Mandalay Bay. The room was 1700 sq feet and had windows all around, 4 flat screens (one built in the mirror in the bathroom), huge bar, dining room table, and steam shower.  Eli and I occupied our time by going to the pools, taking naps, and I read a book while Josh went to his classes. In the evenings we tried out a restaurant featuring a chef off of Top Chef and we went to see The Lion King musical. We were going to see Criss Angel but Eli was not allowed so we went to the Bodies Exhibit at the Luxor instead. Live bodies...eek!

First foods

We tried squash.....
Pre-squash face
First bite.. notice the nose snarl

and the eyebrow scowl

and the food pouring out

Eli can rollllllllllllllllllllllllllllll

Okay so he has been trying for a while and has been rolling over onto his side very easily but he is offically rolling all directions now.
I will try to upload a video!

Isaac's 10th Birthday

This year we had Isaac's party at a local water slide/camping park. It was actually a prime party spot; we had a covered picnic spot by the lake and the boys were able to canoe, swim, water slide, and putt putt. Isaac had all his cousins as well as some boys from school..... he still doesn't want to invite girls. We ordered pizzas for everyone and  had two cookie cakes (which he has asked me for all year instead of regular cake). I can't believe my baby is a decade old! He is such a sweet, caring boy and I am truly proud of the young man he is becoming!

He was excited to get more Warrior books from Aunt Day!

Sick Molly girl

When we got back from vacation, I noticed that Molly wasn't acting right. She was very lethargic and then she started we decided to go get her checked out. Sure enough she had an infection and it was affecting her liver. The vet recommended that she be hospitalized for treatment. Two days later and 390 bucks later the mouser was home. Now we get to stuff... I mean nicely place a pill down her throat for 30 days. The first day I ended up calling my sister-in-law to come help after Josh and I had a riff about getting the pill down. Evidently I was not holding her still enough for his specification. He preceded to tell me that she was a house cat not a cougar or mountain lion and I should have no problem holding a 15 lb cat! So we worked it out... he does it all by himself :)
