- Isaac has started to clap, just within the last couple of days! We've been working on "more," and while he would get excited at the word and motion, he never quite mimicked the motion. He still hasn't now, but I think that as he masters the clapping motion that we'll see a quick connection!

- In addition to this, the sweetest/most heart breaking thing Isaac is now doing . . . is reaching for me. He'll now outstretch his arms to me, combined with the body lean when someone else is holding him. Oh it just gives me the warm fuzzies to see his desire to be with me.

- Birthday party preparations are well underway! We're obviously trying to go on the cheap, but unfortunately will have to rent a room so that all of our family feels welcomed. If my Mom were to host it, I know for a fact that my Dad wouldn't come and unfortunately my in-laws are just a little too far east to be centralized. I think I'm throwing myself into birthday party preparations to ward off the realization my baby will soon be one in much the same way that I planned a surprise birthday party for Tony the last weekend of my maternity leave!

- I'm getting my hair done by Tony's cousin at the Aveda Institute today. She's a student, so it's kind of risky, but she can't make my hair look any worse than it does now, so I'm not concerned in the least! It hasn't been colored since Nadia's wedding and you can see I've got about 3 inches of regrowth, bleh. Sucks being cheap!

- I'm pretty upset right now that my phone is basically out of commission and according to Verizon Wireless I'm not eligible for an upgrade until August. I know for a fact that I bought my phone in April 2008 and even have a blog post to back it up. I need to figure this out ASAP.

Ahhh he's so cute! And that's the first time I've seen a picture of you! You're very pretty. And I can't see any roots...!

Aw that's so sweet that he reaches for you!

Woohoo for hair appointments! I'm getting mine cut today too and am SO excited, my hair is nast right now.

Hope you get your phone situation figured out, sad to realize how challenging it would be to be phone-less!

Your son is too adorable :) I can't believe he's going to be one soon!

I hear ya on the money! I've had my hair done by an Aveda student and loved it. And the price ain't half bad either! :) You may have just motivated me to make an appoinment since I haven't had my hair done since...oh....November!

No lie, it's always a goal of mine that my baby prefer me over others. Even if I can sometimes need a break from holding my peanut & snuggling, it's worth not having as much hands-free time when my baby prefers me over others. I just love it.

Your child is BEAUTIFUL.

I have been with your blog for over a year, which means that I cannot believe little Issac is almost a year old since it seems like just yesterday that you were uber pregnant, at home alone because Tony was at a hockey thing, & you slept with a baseball bat. :-)

Oops. I was signed into Ed's account. Heh.

Aww...that must be the best feeling when your sweet boy only wants to be with you! I get warm fuzzies now, when Henry crawls towards me, bascially climbs my leg for me to hold him! I love feeling so wanted.

The picture of the two of you is
a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e!

Good luck with all your party planning!!! I can't wait to see pics. I just know you are going to do a fabulous job!

Have you spoken to your church to find out if you can have Isaac's birthday party there for free? My church let us have my baby shower in the fellowship room for free. :)

I just can't believe it's time to think about Isaac's birthday. I really can't!! =)

It is crazy how fast time flies with these little ones. I have been blessed by reading about your family over the last year and Isaac has the most wonderful contagious smile! Any idea what kind of theme you'll do for his birthday party? I'm sure your hair will turn out great... I'm in that same "cheap" boat which means I've had no haircut since September and color since who knows when! It's so hard to spend $ on myself these days... but I too have finally decided it's way overdue and scheduled an appt. for Sunday! :)

Issac is growing up so fast! I can't believe he's almost a year old. And as hard as it is to be a parent of a toddler, all of the number of adorable skills they learn completely makes up for all the trouble they can get into.
And I'm sure your hair will look great. I've had great luck every time I've had a student cut my hair there (and they are well supervised and the instructors are ready to fix things, if something is not right).

julie said...

Aww, Brayden started doing that reach thing very recently too. It is adorable! :) Have fun planning his birthday party!!

Sarah said...

Isaac is too cute for words, and I can't believe he's going to be one already! Everyone says that time goes by fast--they are right!

Your hair is going to turn out great and if you can get it for a good price, it's even better. Don't forget to post some pics!

Kelly said...

I get my hair done at the Aveda Institute regularly and am always happy! it takes a while longer...but for the price, I can't help but always go back. I am sure you will love it!

Dunc said...

your pictures of Isaac kill me every.single.time

Q, La, and Gooner said...

Oh, Verizon makes me so mad, but of course I STILL have Verizon!! Agreed about the hair...mine needs done.

His little grin is so cute! And you capture his grins so well!
