Doggy Door Success!

He did it...he did it!!! Isaac can FINALLY crawl through the doggy door! I am so excited that I am almost in tears. How dumb...right?? BUT, the mental thinking that went into this...the physical stamina that it took to wiggle through that door...I am just amazed at how much he's growing. He's getting stronger and smarter each and everyday...and he's simply amazing to me.

NOT only can he crawl through the door now....but, he notices his hands. Can you remember when your infant was playing with their arms...just flinging them in the air...and looked at them with their head tilted, because they realized that those were their arms and THEY were making them move....Isaac finally had that epiphany. He can see his hands and knows that HE is moving them. He can clap his hands randomly...if you ask him to clap, he just smiles at you (not knowing what the heck you're talking about...but, glad that you're talking to him). He can take my hand and touch my nose when I ask where his nose is. He will NOT take his own hand and touch anyone's nose. He can press buttons on his toys now with his fingers! He can't do anything more complicated than a push....but, he can push buttons! He LOVES balls....really, just licking them. He can't roll them yet..but, loves to sit in front of me and let me roll a ball to him and he just grabs it and licks it. He can find shoes if anyone leaves a pair out of the closet! It's like a sixth sense that he has. (we all have teeth marks on our shoes....and he took a chunk of leather out of some pretty nice heels that I have).

Isaac is amazing. Thanks for sharing these accomplishments with me!!!
It's time to enjoy the show. First...we have videographer Chris...trying to catch the little guy in action.

Finally...I'm chatting with Joe before he leaves for work...and he did it on camera! My little superstar!
