Robot art

I drew a giant robot for Isaac to color:

And then he drew his own version of a robot... so proud.

practice baby holding...

isaac had his first stab at holding another baby yesterday, when jessica brought 3 month old graelyn over for a visit. he wasn't really interested at first, but i kept seeing him sneaking peeks at graelyn and then this conversation took place:

isaac: is that a baby?
jessica: yes. she's a baby.
isaac: she's pretty nice.
jessica: she has been a pretty nice baby, tonight.
isaac: she's pretty cool.
jessica: do you want to try holding her?
isaac: um. ok.

not wanting to miss the opportunity, we grabbed the camera, got isaac situated and placed the unsuspecting baby on his lap. as you can see from the picture, he didn't really want to touch her and after about 10 seconds he said, "can you get the baby off of me?"...

the pink room.

derek was off for the last week, so we took the opportunity to paint the baby's room (formerly known as my office). despite an original reluctance to have any pink be a part of this girl's life, i opted for a very dark, almost red shade of pink. isaac thinks that "the baby is going to love it". he also said he liked it better than his (blue) room.

more christmas...

reading charlie brown christmas (which is decidedly less scary than the video that has a creepy scooby doo preview that makes isaac break down into a bumbling mess).


looking in stockings:

opening play doh:

sadly, we didn't take many more pictures on christmas. i'm sure someday i'll look back and regret not taking more picture on what is likely to be isaac's last before realizing christmas = presents.

and a memorable quote:

me: do you want to go open the presents under the tree?
isaac: we already opened them last night.
me: there's more now.
isaac: why?

the cousins.

on christmas eve...

cookie helper... belated pics.

this took place sometime before christmas. i'm a little bit delayed in posting... my apologies. also, some apologies for the onslaught of posts that is about to commence.
