Tonight's big accomplishment was giving Isaac his first real bath. Up to this point he has only had sponge baths. His belly button has finally healed and it was quite the family affair in the bathroom tonight. Nobody wanted to miss it! Daddy got the honors of giving Isaac his bath. He seemed to love it! (They both did, actually!) Isaac relaxed as Daddy poured warm water over him and gently washed him!
You can see that Daddy was being closely supervised. What you can't see is that Ian was sitting at the other end of the counter watching also. I promise Isaac is clean. If he wasn't, we sure would have heard about it from the little supervisors! Here is our clean little man! (Isabelle was the photographer for this one!) Isn't he a cute little fella?

On Monday, I took him into the Dr. so that they could take a look at his belly button. It hasn't healed as well as they would like so they were cauterizing it. No big worries! He weighed in at 8pounds 14ounces!!! That is another 6 ounces in 5 days!!!
Without further ado...the pictures
I gave Isaac a few bottles and he did quite well with it, so David decided to give it a try. I wish I would have gotten a picture of Isaac's face when David first put the bottle to his mouth. There was such a look of confusion! Why was Daddy putting something in his mouth?!? Once he caught on, he took the bottle even better than he had taken it from me! Hooray!

I knew he liked to eat...but even I was surprised today!
When he was born, he weighed 7lb 4oz. He only dropped 2 ounces after birth.
Today, after only two weeks, he weighs 8lbs 8oz and has grown a whole inch!!!
The doctor was quite impressed! He still is only in the 15-20th percentile for both weight and length, but both of the big kids were usually only around the 10th percentile.
I might just have my little football player after all!

Do you see the glimmer of a smile in this picture? I think he thought it was pretty funny that I was having to work so hard for his attention! He was much more amused by the light shining in from the window! Little stinker!
Yesterday morning, Isabelle woke up and informed her Daddy that she was ready to ride a bike without training wheels.
This may or may not have something to do with the fact that I ran over one of her training wheels as I was backing out of the garage the other day.
David offered to put some different training wheels on the bike, but Isabelle had other plans. She felt she was ready to ride a bike.
So, Daddy helped her get ready for some practice. She put on her pads...
and Daddy got her started.
Good job big girl! We are so proud of you!
