Well, oh my gosh is what I have to say. Isaac just recently had his 18 month checkup and lets just say he is a BIG BOY. I notice that he is growing very rapidly because it is hard to stay in clothes that fit. Little did I know that he would continue to grow an inch a month since he turned 1. Everyone keeps telling me he will slow down but I am still waiting on the slow down part! According to the Dr. these are the "statistics" on My "Baby" Boy Isaac!!

Height: 36 inches
Weight: 29 lbs, 14ozs.

God bless him just thankful he is healthy and strong!!!!!!

Having Fun!

We went to Mom's on the 4th and just had a little get together with Donna, Robert, Libby, and the kids. It was a nice time too bad the weather wasn't a little more cooperative. Because of it being so wet outside we tried to keep the kids entertained inside.....

Isaac and Molly in Mema's 20 gallon chicken crock. They both fit perfectly.

Now it is Abby and Molly's turn. Still fitting nicely!

Then there were 3. Molly kept saying ouch because Isaac was stepping on her feet and Isaac was on the verge of crying because the girls was pushing on him. We managed to get the picture snapped before someone got real upset. Hope everyone had a safe 4th.

Ejoying a cookie!

Saturday afternoon while Isaac was taking a nap, I decided to make Chocolate Chip Cookies. Isaac sure did enjoy one after he woke up from nap.

Just getting ready to take a bite.

He thinks they are the best thing.

What, Mom, I am supposed to make a mess, aren't I?!?!?!

Needless to say, he had more cookie on him than in his tummy!!

Playing in the water after 3.5 inches of rain!

After we got 3.5 inches of rain Isaac thought he still needed to go outside and play. See the puddle of water in the back.

Peek-A-Boo I see you.

That's right he is in the middle of the water having a hay day. Thank goodness for crocs!!

Throwing some balls and walnuts in the water.

Friday night we went to Pilot Grove to see the fireworks display put on at Katy Manor. We took the kids not knowing how they would like it. Isaac was scared to death, Molly loved it, and Abby liked everything except the loud noise. Sherry held Isaac most of the time so she got to be in most of the pictures. Isaac never cried he was just very nervous. Some of the picture appear that he is crying but I promise it wasn't as bad as it looks.

Isaac waiting for the fireworks to begin. Waiting very patiently.

That one was really scary!

He's really not crying as it appears.

Maybe if he just doesn't look.

I think there was a "WOW"!

Nope, he still doesn't like it.

Just a picture of some of the fireworks that we saw. My camera didn't do the best.

Oh, pretty!

This is Molly just enjoying herself. She loved the whole thing. Keep in mind this is the child that is scared when a motorcycle goes by because it is too loud!!! Kids are so funny.

Beach Fun!

The weekend after Memorial Day we went to lake for the weekend. It was a very good time. It was nice getting away and enjoying some peace!!! On Friday afternoon we took the kids to the puble beach. Abby did get in the water some but the babies just played in the sand. They had a really good time playing.

Isaac and Molly playing with their sand toys. Abby ran up for a quick picture.

Isaac and Molly enjoying some "sand" time.

Abby running into the lake. She had a really good time playing in the water.

Its been awhile......

Hello there folks! Hope this finds everyone well. It has been forever since I have been able to post so I have a little catching up to do, I know. Although this post doesn't have any pictures I hope each of you take the time to read it. (The pictures will hopefully come within the next few days)

My newest addiction started about 2 months surfing. I heard a story about "Hailey's Hope" on channel 8 news; she was not born yet but they knew that she had Trisomy 13. She would not make it, but her family was just wanting her to live long enough so they could have a chance to hold her on her special "birthday". They had a blog and I found it and kept up with their story. It was the most touching thing I ever read. Hailey was born and they were able to spend 42 precious minutes with her until she went to be with God. While keeping up with this family in Jefferson City I would read comments left by others and it just went from there. I have added a few people to my blog list to the right and I invite you to click on them and read their story. They are all stories of children that are very strong but yet in need of prayers. What is so interesting to me as that I don't know any of these people from Adam but I pray for them every evening along with all the other sick and suffering out there. It makes me realize that children are a true miracle. They are wonderful and amazing.

Also, in 2 days we get to celebrate the best day ever.......Independence Day. I have to say that the 4th is one of my favorite holidays. I enjoy being with family, Bar-B-Que, watermelon, and fireworks. Let's all remember our Independence. We wish everyone a happy and safe 4th of July.

God Bless~Stephanie
