is such a big baby in so many positive ways.
is has all of the cool baby fat on his
arms and left, I have a hart time not wanting to show everyone how cute he
must also be getting ready for another grown spurt, as he
has been wanting to sleep more than the previous few months.
Around 1/130 in the afternoon, he
needs a nap now... which kind of puts a kink into the routine we were running with before, but what ever makes him happy we have to work with.
Every morning I am feeding Izaak cereal and fruits with his
bottle.... it is scary how fast he
is growing and how quickly it seems that time is moving forward.
It is all lots of fun and really really cool to see the changes, but to some degree I miss the little infant that was less than 10 pounds sleeping on me... now I have a 22 pounder on me, which is still cool, but how did he
more than double his
The weekend of July 8th, Izaak and I went to Boston to see Nana, Grampy and 2 DMB shows (well there were for Daddy only, no need to corrupt Izaak with DMB already, or hurt his hearing).
The drive out was a little wet from Utica to Natick, but traffic was lite.
We made our first stop at the Lee service center on the Mass Pike, and Izaak
got a change and a bottle.
did not like the loud flushing toilets or the hand driers in the bathroom... they are all pretty loud.
While I was feeding Izaak
in the McDonald's seating area, a woman with 2 kids (about 6 and 8 if I were to guess) asked me to watch her
food and rain coats while she
girls to the bathroom.
This was kind of funny to me...
If I had been sitting there alone eating my McDonald's she
would not have even acknowledged my presence, but sitting there, alone, feeding a baby, I was suddenly OK to talk to.... funny stuff.
A couple of hours later we were at Nana
and once the car was unloaded, Nana could not believe the amount of "stuff" Izaak
had to travel with.
Execsaucer, Bumbo, clothes, formula, bottles, baby food, baby cereal.... and I wonder why we need a Mini-Van or some other multi-purpose (non gas hogging) vehicle.
Friday night, Grampy was in a 3 day golf tournament and the golfers were eating at the club, so Nana, Izaak and Daddy decided to eat in the restaurant at the club... we were not there 5 minutes before Grampy had to scoop up Izaak and show him off to his friends and golfing partner for the weekend, Stuart.
Friday night, 20 minutes after Daddy
went downstairs to sleep.... where Izaak
had been sleeping for about 90 minutes.... Izaak
woke up to a screaming fit.
It was more than an hour before Izaak
could calm down enough to go back to sleep.
Not sure what happened, but may be it was the fact that it was not his
room or his
But the trunk works, contents stay dry and everything made it back to home in one piece and Izaak
slept most of the drive back with one stop on the Thruway @ Indian Castle for some formula and some BK for Daddy.... another hot and humid day
This past weekend was the first time spent away from Izaak
Mommy missed her
And daddy too!
But mommy did alot of cleaning and organizing that have not occurred since Izaak
Shopping, cleaning and some hobby time painting.
Upon their return, Izaak
actually looked different to me when I saw him, not sure how but he
2nd bottom tooth while away!
Well I have been away the last 3 weekends checking out Dave Matthews Band shows... but I have still been with Izaak during the week mostly normal times....
I have given up a few hours of sleep most weekends to make it home in time for a few hours of sleep to get up with Izaak at his normal times....
I will admit I miss him quite a bit when away... especially when I see other babies out and about.
and I are going to see Nana & Grampy
this weekend with out Mommy.
Izaak and Mary
stopped by to eat dinner with me here at work and Izaak
took an interest in my keyboard, so I let him write his
The 1st few lines are from his
hands, and the others are from his
met my long time friend Aubrae and her
family with open arms...literately!
did not cry or fuss...just let Aubrae hold him and feed him!
grandparents can't even do that without Izaak boo-hoo crying!
6 month birthday July 2nd ! Me, Izaak
, Grandma and Grandpa went to friendly's to celebrate!
vanilla ice cream!
Greg(daddy) was away at a Dave show.
OH, July 1st: Izaak

You can see the top edge of his
tooth...just a week or so before you can see the whole thing!
