Shaun got a new truck and last week someone hit his back bumper and took off. HOW RUDE!!! Our neighbor saw it and let us know. We're looking for a white 4Runner!
I'm feeling so much better but it looks like my sensitivity to smells is sticking around for a while. Scentless anything is my best friend right now! Belly pictures to come soon!
At Sea World. he wanted EVERYTHING! He ended up choosing a helicopter from the Wild Arctic. Thanks Mummu!
No one was performing so Isaac hopped up on stage and gave us a show!
Poor daddy's shoulders and arms have gotten quite the work out lately! All Isaac wants to do right now is fly...
My little lover boy. He has to be as close as he can be when we read books! He is obsessed with my hair too!
Aubrey (2 1/2), Hailey (13mo), and Isaac (18mo) ~ Look at these three gorgeous pairs of blue eyes! These are Nichole's (my college roommates) girls. They came to visit from Fresno!

Saturday was spent in the hot sun with family! We played ball, flew kites, blew bubbles, BBQed, rode horses and quads, ate strawberry short cake and raspberry cheesecake, opened presents, and took LOTS of pictures! Oh, and Isaac went without a nap so when it came to holding still for pictures at the end of the day, he wasn't having it! Especially when a quad and a helmet were sitting in front of him! Shaun's older brother came down from Fresno with his two kids, his fiance', and her two kids. It has been wonderful reuniting with him after all these years. God is definitely healing broken relationships and showing us that family is one of the most precious gifts we have been given! Papa and Nana even graced us with their presence! It was a wonderful day... One worth repeating!

Tonight was different though. Ten minutes after I put him down he was up crying (he never does this)! At first I was annoyed and thinking, "why can't the kid just go to sleep?" I waited a while to see if he would stop, but he only got louder. Wondering if something was wrong I went to check and he was standing at the edge of his crib with his blanket. He reached for me so I threw my heart on my sleeve and picked him up. Again, I was thinking, "Ok Isaac, you need to self sooth, I have stuff to do!" But then, as I sat in the glider rocking him, his head on my shoulder and his body beginning to relax, I realized that this was a precious moment that was more important that anything else I could be doing. My attitude completely changed and my heart melted every few seconds when he would lift his head to kiss me. I love how he snuggles in close, points to his back because he wanted me to rub it, and always reaches his hand around my neck to play with my hair! I got so caught up in loving on him that I didn't even realize he had fallen asleep... The snoring gave it away! Nothing was wrong, he just needed a little extra TLC!

This morning daddy was doing work stuff and mommy was at Bible study, so Gramzie came over to play with me. I'll admit that I cry when she comes and that I don't want mommy to leave, but I'm just playing hard to get. I soon forget that my parents are gone and have a great time! Gramzie and I went for a two hour walk. She knows I love being outside. I got her to stop at the shopping center and shower me with gifts. It helps to be cute! Anyway, she told me that I could choose one beanie baby. Even though the whale and snake were pretty cool, I just had to have Fable, the sparkly, purple unicorn! I couldn't leave her there to get attacked by all the other animals... She needed me! Daddy wasn't a fan of Fable but maybe he's not as secure in his manhood! ;)
Thanks Gramzie for my unicorn and balloons. I can't wait to get that big Elmo pinata for my birthday that you promised me!
Why he had to hold an attachment from the vacuum beats me!
Look at my shirt grandpa! I'm sad I didn't get to see you when you came over to pick up gramzie, but I needed that nap!
