Our Best Christmas Morning EVER!

The tree was lovingly decorated ...

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care ...

The house was made festive ...

And alas ... on the holiest of days, the gifts for our own "prince of peace" arrived ...

And Isaac was happy at the discovery of them ...

And Daddy was happy that Mommy gave him an entire hockey outfit so that they can play together on the ice ...

Mommy was so happy to share this special day with her boy (finally) ...

And Grammy Bobo and Poppy came to share the love and laughter as well ...

Isaac enjoyed the quilt and pillow that Mommy made for his baby dolls ...

And Santa was VERY good to him this year! He brought Isaac his own ATV ...

Ok, Ok, that is not his ATV ... but check out what Grammy Bobo and Poppy got for him! His very own wheels! And he is SO good at driving it ... at only 21 months old!!! ...

Wow! Grandparents rock!

What an amazing Christmas. We spent it just the way that we wanted to ... at home with eachother ... enjoying every moment with the baby boy that we have waited our whole lives for. It was absolutely perfect.

Thank you God.

Oh yeah, and we had the best laughs at watching this little man drive around on his new wheels. We hope you do too:

Isaac's First Haircut & First Visit With Santa

I cannot believe that it has been a month since my last post. And more than that, I cannot believe how much Isaac has grown and changed within that month. His vocabulary has improved greatly, his gross motor skills are such that he has mastered some toddler basketball skills, and he can tell you just about every sound that can possibly be made by any given farm animal (goose, duck, dog, cat, frog, chicken, chick, rooster, cow, sheep, pig, turkey, horse and goat). His "cock-a-doodle-doo" is a favorite around here.

And today, he went to the mall and got his first haircut! What a big boy he was too. We were shocked at how good he was through the whole process. Here is a photo:

And here is his "after" shot taken later that evening with a face full of spaghetti sauce:

Prior to his haircut, Isaac also met Santa for the first time. And frankly, like so many young toddlers around the world... he hated every second of it! Here are some photos:

But he did love the toddler "merry-go-round" that costs a $1 for about 2 minutes! And he thought it was very important to ride it OVER and OVER again.

And because Mommy is always the one who is taking pictures, one might wonder whether or not I truly exist, seeing as Daddy is always the one being photographed with Isaac. Well, on most days I do exist ... and I also got a haircut today at the mall. Here is a photo of my much shorter mane. I am SO happy with it:

We had such a great day together at the mall... a simple pleasure that we don't ever seem to have the time for. We got to do a little shopping, eat some Chinese food & ice cream, get haircuts, and play on silly mechanical rides. It was such a treat just to spend the day together in "the outside world"!

And at the end of the day, Isaac took a nice long bath ... until he pooped in it. Really, he did. Just like Caddyshack. Anyway, we leave you with this photo:

Goodnight :)
