Float Fun!

Loni had us over tonight for a swim and dinner. Sherry took pictures...some in video mode...I guess I will have to teach her how to use my camera. Here are some of the pictures that I can share. I was not aloud to post any pictures on Loni, Sue B, and Sue K. :)

Issabella being taught how to float on her back!

Issabella giving the floater a try. She was still a little to small for it.

Logan in his crab!

Waiting to go in the water!

Thanks Loni for having all of us over. Enjoy your first few months of not going back to school! (She is now retired)

3 Months Old

Dear Issabella,

On July 21, 2010 you turned three months old. You have become quite the sassy pants as daddy and I call you. You only want us to hold you so that you can stand on our laps. On July 13, you rolled over once for me and once for Aunt Casi. Poor Daddy has not seen you roll over yet. You get halfway there and stop. You have started eating oatmeal and sweet potatoes. You love to babble when is the cutest thing.

Here is what we remember about you right now...
*you love to stand up
*you are eating oatmeal and sweet potatoes
*you sleep 8-9 hours at night
*you just noticed that you have a window to look out of in the car
*you have rolled over twice
*people always ask us if you have a tan
*people also ask us if we do your hair that way...with the little spike
*you still love to have us read to you
*you like to swing

Little Peanut...we love you so much! You put a smile on our face everyday. Daddy and I love our moments when we spend a few moments all in bed together on the days daddy is home in the morning. You just babble and slobber and laugh. I think you like it too.

We love you Peanut,
Mommy and Daddy

Oh So Good...

Issabella enjoying dining outside! She has been eating oatmeal and is starting to get the hang of it. Tonight we gave her some sweet potatoes and boy did she let you know how much she loves them. Once I get my battery charger back from Brookston I will take a video of her talking while eating...super cute!

Here she is wearing my sunglasses...she loves to look at them when they are on my head..she does not care for them so much when they are on her.

Not So Sure!

Dear Issabella,

At your last doctors visit, the doctor said we could try and give you baby cereal! Well we did and this is what happened tonight...

You just don't get it...and that is fine! We are in no hurry! We love you and can't believe how strong you are getting.

Issabella's 3rd 5K!

Dear Issabella,

You have begun to be a real natural at doing 5K's then again all you do is this...

Your third 5K took place in Walkerton and your boyfriend and his mommy joined us...

we did really good. I have a goal for us and we only need to shave five minutes off our time! Logan and you were tired after the race and took a snooze in the car! Super cute!

Before the race started someone asked how old you were and I said you were two months old. This person said, "Oh is this her first 5K?" I said, "Nope, it is her third." The look on the ladies face was priceless.

Love you peanut!!!

Rockin Green

Post Number 2 for the day!

Dear Issabella,

Your daddy and I have made the choice to cloth diaper you. You have such neat diapers from GroVia/GroBaby, Rumparooz, Swaddlebees, and Dreameaze. Your butt looks so cute, but the smell was getting to us. So mommy did some online research and came across a company called Rockin Green. Their reviews were great, people were even using the stuff to clean their husbands work clothes. So I thought we would give it a try. IT WORKS!!! No more smell and no more of this...

So now Issabella you look cute and your diapers don't smell!

Taste of Chicago 2010

Every year we go to Chicago and enjoy the taste. Each year different people join us. This year it was Casi, Lisa, Logan, Amanda, and Sophie!

Here I am feeding Issabella next to the Lego Granny in the shopping mall.

Issabella and I in front of the Millennium fountains.

Issabella getting her feet wet...she loves water.

I cut Seth's hair so he did not want his head to get burnt so he wore his hay hat all day...too cute!

Seth enjoying the smokin hot wings!

Chocolate tart Casi and I shared!

Our annual fountain pics....Issabella was sleeping!

Who would not want to date this person? Love her!

Till next year!
