"Merry Kiss-mas," exclaims Isaac

Yes, you read that right... It's Christmas today at our house! Shaun works tomorrow so we got to celebrate one day early! Parker slept all morning but Isaac loved opening his AND mommy and daddy's presents. I think he's finally got the hang of it... It's all over from here! He woke up saying, "Happy birthday Jesus... Open presents now?" Here are a few pictures of our day and an update on the boys. Shaun and I have so much to be thankful for this year!

Isaac was way more interested in his new stuff!

My favorite Christmas picture

Isaac and his two best friends

A grand sight to see...

The tail end of a handsome smile

Parker and his only present!

Even Isaac knows where the focus should be this Christmas season!

Parker James
Parker is our little Shaun. He's a blonde-calm-little-white boy . He mainly sleeps and then chills all day. He only wants to be on his tummy and already loves seeing how long he can hold his head up... He's a very focused and determined kid. Parker is also picky about how he wants to be held. From day one he wanted to be up on your shoulder. I never got to cradle him in my arms like you do with most newborns. At 2.5 weeks he was already 11 lbs. so we like to call him our chunky monkey. Now, at 5 weeks, I have put away all the newborn clothes and have taken out the 3 to 6 months. I'm sure by the end of January we'll be on our way to 6 to 9 month outfits! I tell people that someday Isaac is going to be famous and Parker is going to be his bouncer!

Isaac Timothy
Isaac, Isaac, Isaac... Where do I even begin!?! Somedays he's a monkey. Others he's a train... But MOST days he's Buzz Lightyear! There is obviously nothing wrong with his imagination. He also loves anything with a motor and wheels. Isaac is quite the chatter box. Sometimes it's hard to have a conversation with another adult because he wants to join in or echo everything I'm saying. He doesn't like when Shaun and I are talking to each other and not him. He'll actually tell us to stop talking. All of his sentences end with "kay?" Example: "Daddy, come upstairs, kay?" Or, "Isaac no go outside, kay?" Or, "Baby Parker stop crying, kay?" It's so cute! When Shaun is playing Rock Band, Isaac will "rock out" with the microphone. It kinda scares me with how crazy he gets with it! Isaac has taken over his big brother roll with no problem. He loves to help us change and burp Parker and is the first one by his side when he starts to cry. Isaac can be flying like crazy all over the house but will stop every two minutes to kiss and hug his little brother! Isaac is very polite too. He always says please and thank you AND bless you when someone sneezes!

This year has been crazy with raising a toddler, growing a baby, and then welcoming him into our home, so this post IS our Christmas card! I promise to send one next year by snail mail! Thanks to all those that remembered us in your letter writing this year!
Happy New Year from Shaun, Erica, Buzz, and Chunky Monkey!

Isaac and Daddy

For Shaun's birthday my parents got him a web cam. Now we can see him when he's "workin' on the fire trucks" (as Isaac says). The two days Shaun is gone, Isaac constantly asks for him. Isaac talks to my family on web cam so he's used to it, but still doesn't fully understand the concept. When he was talking to Shaun he kept saying, "Daddy hug Isaac" and "Come home daddy!" I think it was a little hard on Shaun! Hopefully it isn't always this heart breaking! I love these pictures. My boys enjoyed lunch and a few laughs together! Daddy even got a chance to remind Isaac to be nice to mommy and to take care of baby Parker while he's gone!

three weeks

Parker James currently rings in at:

11 pounds (93 percentile)

21 1/2 inches

Shaun and I have a very, VERY healthy baby boy!

Possible smile caught on camera? Or maybe it's just gas!?

(Isaac wore this outfit at three months... NOT three weeks!)

Getting bored...

Yup, gas. Parker had a blow out and had to finish the rest of his photo shoot naked.

Big brother Isaac said he wanted his picture taken too... This is what he gave me!
