This is Turkey and whipped cream...

he has to hold a spoon at all times 
(which means...we use about 3 with each feeding)
Oh...now what???  
(He's mad because I'm blocking the tv)
This one is for you Krista!
He knows when the flash is coming...so funny!
He's getting SO big for his swing...
well...not by weight (he's still only 17 pounds...
but, he's getting longer....29 inches now!--i think!)
Hi there...
Sweet Eli and Isaac (Eli's still proud of the 
missing tooth)
**But, notice Isaac's head.  It's hard for him to 
hold it upright sometimes.
See....the head again.
And...he's eating the oxygen tube....any tube
will do...really!

Well...those pics sum up the last two days.  We had a little rolling, a little eating...lots of lovin'...
LIFE around here couldn't be better.
I did turn our dining room into a play room.  We've had that new dining room table for three years....and NEVER eaten at it...so, I took it out!  (Eli loves it...Isaac will one day when he can make it in there.)
Isaac is still satting in the mid 80s.  I try everyday to take him off the O2...but, he just isn't ready.  (They told me that it could take a few months).  uurrgghhh....  It would be nice if  he would just go ahead and BREATHE....geez....is that too much to ask for??)  He's tolerating his increased feeds of 6.5 ozs...so, maybe he'll start to put on some weight.  (isn't that what the tube was suppose to be for??)  It was SO nice not having any appointments this week.  
LOST is on..I'm not typing as much as I should...but, all is well on the home front.

Enjoy this video of Isaac rolling...He's funny...he keeps getting stuck on his belly.

Lets see....

First of all, look Samantha. Your blanket is beside Isaac. Kathy hasn't lost it yet.

Second, Kathy...mom is going to yell at you for making Isaac get upset. Just wait!! :)

Third, look at the clothes on the love seat. And you pick on me and my messy house. ha ha

Great job Isaac. Glad to see Eli is still being a great big brother. Just wait, you'll me moving around more soon and driving mommy crazy.

Samantha said...

OMG! He is SO CUTE! I want to squeeze him. It was so cute how he would take his paci to comfort himself...he needs to teach that to Micah. I am so glad to see the blanket, and that he likes it.

I am sure you have posted video of Isaac in the past, but this time was the most personality I have been able to get of him and I LOVE IT! So adorable!

The kids may or may not have school today...not sure if their preschool is opening, but I am going to give you a call back today. Thanks for calling the other day :)

Mandy...thanks for the note in my guestbook.

I hope you have a wonderful day and I will talk to you soon.

Loved all the video and pictures...thanks for sharing!

Love ya!

The video is precious! What a little sweetie man. Isaac and Elijah are on the same wavelength...Mama! Stop making me work! It looks like he's making progress in gaining some strength and that is what matters. Good job, Isaac! And look at that personality. Oh, and the chub rolls on his arms...love it!

I'm so glad you guys are having a low-key week and that you're able to enjoy each other. YAY! That makes me so happy.

Did you like Lost? I can't believe Ben has been in love with Juliette all along. What a snake.

Grandma Judy said...

MOM, WATCH THE ARM! You're having him roll over, and when he goes back, his arm is in the wrong position. It hurts. Be easy. Don't let my baby cry! Mandy was right!

He looks just too tired to do all that work. I'll bet his heart rate just zoomed up.

Be easy with him. As Grandma Cat would say...."He's a delicate child"

Hi Kathy,

What a little Sweetie! I loved seeing his video and hearing those cute baby sounds....even if he wasn't too happy with the whole rolling thing! :) (For the record...Emma never did roll...and still doesn't!)

I'm sorry that he's still not satting high enough to take him off the oxygen yet. Poor little thing....two tubes can certainly make life more difficult, especially for us mommies!

Take care, Kathy, and have a great weekend! Thanks for your notes on Emma's site....I love having the support of other heart moms!

Hugs from Utah,

Wendy (& Emma, too!) ~ 2-years-old, 6q25.3-qter deletion, TOF (2nd OHS rescheduled for 3/14/08)

Oh my! What a cutie for the camera. That little man has some rolls on his arms. I love plump babies! =) I'm sure the weight will pick up quickly now that he's tolerating more. That video was adorable! He just wants you to help him momma! His noises were super cute! I just want to pinch his cheeks. Enjoy your low-key weekend!

I just have a minute but wanted to say how CUTE those pictures are. Man Isaac was working so hard in that video I'm so proud of him. He is such a little ham for 17 pounds. You know Arianna is around 29 inches too! Well gotta run. Glad things are going well and enjoying an appt free week.

Take Care!

Super cute little man, he is! Yay for Katie Beckett!! I LOVE Katie Beckett (most of the time) and now you can breathe a sigh of relief for the alleviation of financial worries related to medical stuff, right?

I totally dig the squares, the the rounds are cute too... have fun picking the color...
