How they've grown....

So, I did this experiment with Jackson when he was in the first year of his life. I took a picture of him each month in his "Jackson" chair in the same position so you could see just how much he had grown. Here are Jackson's pics from one month and three months. We decided to do the same thing with here are Isaiah's pics from one month and three months. Why is there no two month picture you ask? Well, the poor kid was crying so much from the colic during month two of this life, and we were such basket cases then that we just didn't get around to the two month picture. Sorry buddy! :)

Labor Day Weekend

What a fabulous time we had this past Labor Day weekend! We headed up to our house at Grand Lake on Friday and enjoyed some much needed family time. We swam, took the boat out, fished (errr, I didn't, but Jackson and Renzi did!), cooked out, played with friends and attempted to sleep.

Isaiah slept the second night we were there from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. straight. Too bad he hasn't done that since, and in fact, has been sleeping worse since! EEK!

What really made this trip special was the fact that this was the first time we have been at the lake where Isaiah did not scream the entire time we were there. In fact, he was downright pleasant to be around. :) Yiippeee! He loves being on the boat and really seems to enjoy it.

Here are some pics of the lake....the pic of Jackson taking his swim suit off? Well, that's just what he does these days when he is ready to go. Starts taking his clothes off.

P.S. Isaiah had his 2 month doc appt. yesterday (even though he is 3 months old!) and he weighs 15 pounds and is 25 inches long...both in the 97% in each respective category. WOW! That's a big boy folks. (see the pic of Isaiah sleeping in the stroller-he is wearing Jackson's swimsuit! and it fits!) The Pediatrician also said we could slowly start a new formula (Em Sue-it's Alimentum!) and see how he does. Here's hoping that it works, it's WAY cheaper than the Neocate he is on now!

Much love,
