Well yesterday Isaiah went for his first needles. Jason and I were both a bit uptight about the situation. However, Isaiah did well. He did cry, and I thought Jason might do the same, but once he got back into mommy's arms and on the breast he calmed down. He ate really well after the needles.
Everything changed after that....

Isaiah slept!!!! and Slept!!!! and Slept!!! He would wake up long enough to have a quick snack, and fall back to sleep... wake up scream, and snack, and back to sleep. This went like this almost all day. Jason came home from work, and I went out for a bit. Isaiah had a feed for him, and was asleep when I got back.
So I started to get a bit worried when he was sleeping so much, I thought we were in for a bit of a night. Well, it wasn't that bad. Isaiah didn't sleep that great, but he did sleep all night. He didn't go to a deep sleep, but was asleep. He fussed, moved lots, and made lots of noise.
Today he has eaten quite well, and has just started to nap. I hope that he is back to his normal day, not that we have a real normal day yet! I am sure that we will get a routine soon.

Taylor stayed home from school with me yesterday. He had a good day. He has been so helpful, and always wants to do what he can for Isaiah. He helps lift him up to the chair, move him. the only thing he will not do is change him! LOL We have talked to him about it, but he will always say "I am a child, I can't change a babies bum" It is so cute.
Sorry there are no pictures. I am sure there will be lots as we get closer to Halloween!

How does she do it!

I don't know how Anne Geddes does it, because it sure isn't easy to get cute pictures of babies doing these things!!

So we tried to do the Geddes photo of Isaiah. I guess he didn't really like it.. maybe it was too cold in there for him. I am willing to try it again, but with a towel or something inside, that way it isn't so cold.
I have gutted two pumpkins, and hope that in the next day or so we are able to get them carved and looking good. I have a few tiny ones that I would like to gut and put candles in. I will take pictures when I get them done.

Isaiah goes for his 2 month needle tomorrow so please keep us in your prayers. I am sure it will be ok, but just in case.

I don't know if this will work or not, but I am trying to get this video up that I did of Isaiah..

Happy Anniversary!

Today is Jason and my second anniversary! We had a quiet day at home, as the weather here is really hot!! +32!! It is crazy! We did get some work done around the house.
We also got to go out for dinner on Saturday. A big Thank you to Sophia and Justin for taking the boys for us so we could go out. It was great! We went to the Mandarin for supper. It is a large 7 table buffet! You name it, it is there! There was lots of fish, so I had to be a bit careful, but it was worth watching what I was eating. We were just heading to table number 4 when my cell phone rang... my heart stopped.. I was reaching for my phone, knowing who was calling already by the ring tone... It was Sophia... all that was going through my head was "Isaiah is driving her nuts, Taylor is acting up" and those sorts of things. I answered the phone..."Robyn, you have such a great baby! You don't need to rush home, he is soo quiet, they are both being so good!" Sophia was so happy that I was a wee bit confused. We finished our dinner and headed home to pick up the boys. Sophia and Justin were not expecting us quiet so soon, but I had to feed Isaiah.
Thank you Thank you Sophia and Justin!

So Isaiah is now 2 months old!!! I can't believe it has been that long! He is sure growing. He is doing great at holding up his own head, eating so well, and playing very well on his own, as well as with his brother.
The boys had their first bath together tonight. I wasn't "allowed" to take pictures. The oldest, not mentioning any names, told me I was not taking pictures of him in the bath tub!
So instead, here is a picture of Isaiah and a big Smile, and one of him just after I took him out of the tub.
I hope to get some pictures of Taylor soon, but he has been a bit camera shy.

This is what we had for supper!
Cheesy Volcano Meatballs
Isaiah and I went to Brampton today to visit some of our friends. We didn't get to far, but we did get to see Joyce. It was nice to get out and visit.
I have been having a bit of a time feeling trapped. I don't like this not being able to get out and do things. I feel like I am stuck here in the house. I know I am not, but it is hard to get out and do things when I have to catch the bus to go, or walk. I also am not a big fan of doing things alone. It is times like this, that I find it rather hard to be so far away from our families. I also find this time very hard to be without Nanny. I forgot how much she was around when Taylor was a baby.

Isaiah is growing fast, and outgrowing so many of this clothes. He is a great baby! He is feeding much better then he had been, and is sleeping better.
We had a really nice visit with Great Grandma Stahls, and a few others.

We have been having some fun playing on the floor, in our crib, and in our chair. I am so happy to see Isaiah play with his toys, and reach for things.

He also got some great shoes from his Aunt Gail! I love them! I have been looking for these for such a long time!
