On November 10 we are officially saying that Isaac is walking. He had been walking for about a month before but only a few steps here and there. On the 10th he was walking down the hall and all over. We still think it is so funny to look around the corner and there Isaac is walking, weird to see when we are so used to him crawling everywhere.
We have put up a fence in our backyard so now Pico can go out without a leash and Isaac will have a place to play and call his own. My mom and dad were so great and basically built it for us.
I am now back to work and it is not as bad as I was imagining. It is kind of nice to talk to adults again but I still miss my little guy. My mom is looking after him for us during the day and it is working out really well. We visit both grandparents alot and Isaac has no trouble being left with any of them. It is so wonderful to have them so close, not only for babysitting but for fun!

August 5, 2008 - Isaac cut his third tooth.
August 23, 2008 - Isaac cut his fourth tooth.
This summer has come with alot of changes, good ones, and family visits. As noted above Isaac now has four teeth. He is enjoying eating all kinds of new foods. So far he has no real dislikes which is so wonderful. I hope that it stays that way.
Glen had three weeks off with us and we had a wonderful time. We went to visit Grandma and Grandpa Ferrell for the first week. We then stayed around here for the remainder of the time. It was so great to spend time as a family. We also had alot of visitors. I think we saw almost everyone on my side of the family this summer. So great to see some people we haven't seen for some time.
Now I am counting down the days til I go back to work. This is not a happy count down, I really am going to miss our little boy and I have quite enjoyed becoming a bit of a susey homemaker. But if plans go well I am hoping to have an announcement next spring and then possibly I will stay home with the kids. My mom is so wonderful and will be looking after Isaac while we are working. It is such a relief to have her watch him for us.

We have been having lots of fun in the sun! We have been out on the boat, at the beach and at the peanut pool. The picture here is when we were out at a friends cabin on Okanagan Lake. Just a typical day here in the sunny Okanagan.
I feel now that the swimming lessons have paid off. I wasn't sure at first but now Isaac is having a great time in the water. He will splash and play in the water. The lifejacket is another story though. He is not a fan of that. I can't blame the little guy though, the jacket comes right up under his chin. I am sure it will get better as he grows into it.
I am not looking forward to heading back to work in 3 months, so i am taking full advantage of my summer off with the little man.

We have all unfortunately been sick this last week. It was tough on Glen as he has been very busy at work and feels that there was too much to do at work to take a day off. So his weekend was spent sleeping, but much needed as he much better now, so are Isaac and I. We have also been dealing with everything with our break in. It is coming along fine and the insurance company has been great.
Now we spend our time chasing and playing with Isaac and watching him grow (too fast for my liking).

Playing Blues Clues for the Xbox while wearing a knock-off Blues Clues hat for the amusement of mommy

Isaac can now sit on his own quite well and play, with a few falls here and there. He can also push himself up into the crawling position, not much longer before he is on the move. I am not looking forward to trying to baby proof our house. Too many wires and things to get into. Perhaps i should start now so that when he is actually moving I will be prepared.
Isaac just started swimming lessons. His first one was ok, it interrupted his nap so that did not make for a happy baby but I am sure it will get better. I figure it is a good idea to get him used to playing in the water cause he is going to be at the beach alot this summer. And he is meeting some new friends, which is great too.

Isaac can now sit on his own for a little while, as long as he is occupied by toys. He is constantly building his abs never wanting to lie flat on his back. It will not be long before he is on the move. Yikes!! Time to start baby proofing and getting all the wires and such out of the way. Isaac just had his 6 month check up at the doctor and he said "he is a healthy boy no concerns or worries Isaac is doing great!" That is what we like to hear.
We introduced carrots into Isaac's diet and he really liked them. Then we tried peas and well those are not so good. I think that squash will be next. It is so fun giving him new foods. My mom gave Isaac a pickle to suck on and he did not even make a face. Looks like he will love them just like his mom.

We had a great Easter spending it in Calgary with family. Isaac did really well on his first road trip. He slept most of the way making it easy for us to get there. Isaac met a bunch of new family members and got along with them very well. By the end of the trip he was getting a little fussy, I am thinking because his schedule was all out of wack but once we got home everything went back to normal. Thanks again to everyone for the wonderful food and place to stay.
March 25, 2008 Isaac had his first massage today. He did really well and then mommy had a massage. It felt wonderful.

I had to include this picture as there is a little story behind it. I was about to go out for a walk and thought "it is sunny, wonder if I have a hat that will fit him." I found this one and thought I need to take picture. So I snapped off a few, Glen looked at them and found flaws in all of them. So now we refer too him as "The Photo Snob." I think that this is quite a cute one. What do you think?

We have been getting out and walking during the day, Isaac loves the scenery and is always watching everything go by (when he is not sleeping that is). Isaac has got to be the smiliest baby I have seen. Not a minute goes by without him smiling, it melts your heart every time.
Isaac attended his second birthday party on Sunday. It was his cousin Reegan's first birthday. Isaac was charming the ladies and talking up a storm. Looks like he is going to be a social butterfly, just like his mom.

We enjoy our time at home and try to get out walking (as long as it is warm out). We are enjoying all the changes that we see in Isaac, many have come within the last couple of weeks. With so many smiles I am sure that he will laugh any time now.

This last weekend we had our first family sickness. Isaac was sick on Saturday and then me on Sunday and Glen on Sunday night. I tell you it is hard to be sick and take care of everyone. I hope that I don't get sick like that again, colds I can handle but the throw-up achey sick is too hard.
I have taken some new videos (which will be posted soon) of Isaac playing on his paymat, in the bath and doing his little tongue trick. He has discovered his tongue and he either sucks on it or is sticking it out. It is way too much fun watching him grow and learn new things. I am going to miss it when he is grown but I will enjoy it immensely while it is here.

My good friend Breanne was here for the week so we had her over for a visit and went to her parents place for dinner. It was so good to see the Towson family. I hope to see them more in the new year.
New years was nothing too exciting. We ended up staying at home, cause Isaac was not well. We watched a movie and Glen was sleeping by 12:20. Very exciting i know!! I guess this is the beginning of what it will be like to have kids during the holidays. We are coping with Isaac being sick. Just a cold but he is all stuffy and unhappy. We will do fine but so hard to see him suffer. Oh well again all new with this parenting thing.
