Isaac Invades Atlanta!

Taking in airplane travel

Taking in airplane travel

Isaac and I flew to Atlanta to spend Easter with my mom and her side of the family. It was Isaac’s first plane ride and quite an adventure for mommy and baby. We flew out of Cedar Rapids, my mom flew out of Des Moines, and we met in Chicago for the flight to Atlanta.

Isaac was such a good traveler! He was sociable with everyone, didn’t fuss much on the flights and even slept the whole way from Chicago to Atlanta!

He was so excited to meet his great grandparents and showed him all his baby tricks while we were there. Here are a few photo highlights:

I had such a great weekend and was so glad Isaac could meet his great grandparents and other family members. Looking forward to another visit soon I hope!

6 Month Review – in photos

Wow, I have been a horrible blogger…I don’t think I can even call myself a blogger anymore.

Here’s a quick recap, in pictures, of what we’ve been up to this month.

We helped my brother move...Isaac really cracked the whip!

Sick, but still happy, baby. The 'plague' struck our house last week and we have quite recovered.

Made a quick trip to the ER for a big spike in fever. By the time we saw the doctor he was all smiles!

Six month update

Wow, can’t believe it’s been an entire month since my last post….guess I’m running out of hours in the day.

Hard to believe our Little Man is six months old. The time really does fly by! We have really been enjoying our time with Isaac the last few months. He’s active, responsive, fun to play with, and more mobile than ever!

Still no tooth yet, but there’s plenty of drool to go around.

In the last month we have gotten rid of the swaddle and sleep sack. He falls asleep on his own in the crib with his new security blanket and pacifier. Position of choice is on his stomach, face down….terrifies me! We have regressed a bit and haven’t been sleeping through the night the last few weeks. But, I can’t say I’m surprised, just disappointed. :-)

Likes: sitting up, talking, being outside, Sophie the Giraffe, football, bouncing, bath time, watching Zoey, and sleeping on his tummy.

Foods we’ve tried: oatmeal, yogurt, green beans, guacamole, chicken and dumplings, applesauce, cheese, corn, potatoes, pot roast and veggies, bread.

Looking forward to spring so we can venture outside more with him.

Look who’s five months old!

Recent updates: on Thursday he rolled from his back to stomach and he’s cutting a tooth!

Foods we’ve tried: banana, sweet potato, applesauce, avocado, yogurt, malt-o-meal, and oatmeal

Our love bug

Isaac getting into the spirit of Valentine’s Day!

We also made our first Valentine for his daycare friends….he wasn’t much help though.

Milestone

Isaac had his first solids tonight, mushed up banana, and seemed to really enjoy it.

The strange look on his face, I think, is him processing the newness of everything…texture, taste, chewing, swallowing.

My hope is to skip the cereals and puréed and jarred food altogether and go right to super soft and mushy table foods. In a month or so when he is better able to grab and hold things he’ll be feeding himself!

Time is flying by!
