On His Way Now

Another Saturday Morning

We are finally starting to see some jealousy between Samuel and Isaac. If Sam sees that I or Joel are holding Isaac he comes running over to the one of us that doesn't have a child in our hands, shouting Hold Hold Hold! If one of us is playing with Isaac on the floor Sam comes over to try and show us one of his toys. Yes there feels to be some competition in the air. This picture is a great example; Daddy was holding Isaac and Sam felt like he should also be apart of Daddy's lap. Sam was wanting to show his brother some love in this picture, and yes Isaac is starting to entertain us with some goofy faces.

It is bad enough that Melvyn or Gus comes to beg for attention if we are with the kids but now Sam has added to the jealousy game. It is actually humorous to watch. Isaac is making his way all around the floors now. He crawls about 3-4 'crawling steps' and then opts to go down to his belly and scoots his way around. It looks like a trip to the store for some baby gates is in order! We are lucky to live in a rancher so we don't have to worry about stairs but my laundry room is off limits to kiddies of all sizes.

Here are some pictures of the pets that some of you have requested. Gus is our little yorkie poo and he is about 10 lbs, and Melvyn is our obese tabby cat and weighs in at about 22 lbs (although I have put him on a diet to try and slim him down some :-)).

All Abord

The Potty Train Express

We started the potty training experience last week and were doing well, from what I thought, but got caught up into running some errands and visiting the grandparents; a mixture I realized we cannot do until Sam has mastered controlling his 'out-puts'. So now that my birthday is over and our anniversary, we are going to jump on the potty training train once again. With any luck he will master this before we leave to go to Nebraska for a wedding at the end of August. If he doesn' least he will be a little bit older and hopefully a little more ready to try again once we get back. After all this is the kid that already comes to me and says, "EWWWWW" because he has pooed in his diaper. YES, HE IS READY! Plus I just love his sweet little buns in those big boy undies, and his little legs just add to the sweetness factor.

Here are some updated pictures of Isaac too. He is now Army crawling it all over the place. Put an object out there that looks enticing and he is off to get it, surprisingly with quite a bit of speed. How is it that 7 months could of possibly gone bye?

Oh and I can't forget that Sam thought that his brother was hungry right that minute as Isaac was jumping in his jumperoo. My little goat. LOL.
