Four For Now,...

Getting a picture of Isaac in 2015 hasn't been an easy task,...he's wary of cameras in Mama's hands, but I had to try this morning as Isaac's days of being four years old are waning fast,...as his BIG FIVE  YEAR OLD BIRTHDAY approaches,...



WOW,...five years of Isaac's awesomeness,...it's been a journey and an adventure and NOT DULL for a second,...you never know what you are going to get from Isaac,...except that it is going to be totally unique and unexpected!!!!

Verbal explosions are still occurring with Isaac struggling to express himself in more a complex manner. A huge achievement this past week,...for THE very first time, Isaac verbally express an emotional state,...he told me, "I sad," - and indeed, Isaac was very, very sad, but Mama was unrelenting about letting him go outside and play in the freezing rain,...and Isaac being Isaac he didn't stay sad very long,...life is too interesting. 

According to Isaac Mama and Daddy are both adorably 'cute', "You cute!" - he tells us, no doubt mimicking what he is constantly being told,...and need I add that a wildly grinning Isaac had a blast mimicking our hacking cough while we were in the middle of our bronchitis - the little monkey - we loved it, it brighten some very sick days. 

I am very please to report that Isaac is really becoming a helper around the house, from helping clean-up toys to bringing in grocery bags and even running errands, "Take this to Daddy," or "Put this on the kitchen table" - commands are instantly understood and obeyed,...and our hearts melt with gratitude for such developmental growth,...

Lots of birthday talk being bantered, I am not sure how much Isaac comprehends that it is HIS birthday next week,...but this morning Isaac wanted me to sing the birthday song to him,...we were cuddling and he caught my gaze and sang, "Happy Birth-day" - which translated, "Sing to me, Mama," - he can't express such a complete thought 'yet' - but there is a new level of sophistication in Isaac's communication. 

Last week,...Isaac said, "Car! Door! Tablet!!!!" - while frantically signing 'tablet' which translated, "My iPad is in the car, please open the door so I can play with it," - that's pretty complex motor processing for our little guy,...

"WOW" is still Isaac's favorite interjection at the moment, when I handed him his breakfast oatmeal this morning, he said, "WOW food," - such a marvel, as if he doesn't eat oatmeal nearly every day, but hey I am not going to knock my little guy finding fascination in every aspect of life,...that's a WOW to us, and it is so much fun watching Isaac enjoy life,....

Big Birthday coming up this week,...and no doubt, Isaac won't eat his birthday cake, I mean he hasn't yet, but he'll still have one to redecorate,...and his presents WON'T be wrapped as Isaac does not like unwrapping presents,...why? I don't know, and I don't even think Isaac knows,...he jussssst doesn't like it,...thank you very much,...so no wrapping on his awesome presents,...

Tonight we'll be celebrating a little early with fireworks,...Isaac's favorite,...he LOVED,...the Fourth of July fireworks,...and everyone in our household was too sick to have fireworks over the New Year,...so kicking off Isaac's birthday week with fireworks will be a fun way to celebrate the wonder of having Isaac in our lives,...he is such a blessing,....love, love, love this little guy!!!


Until I post again,...may God bless and keep you!
