Boy Meets Moon (Happy 1 Month Birthday!)

Isaac's one month birthday gift was a lunar eclipse-- that's going to be a hard one to top.

It's easier to catch such astronomical wonders when you're up at odd hours of the night. When we were up feeding him at 5 am on August 28th, Dan noticed a sliver of a moon above the Empire State building. We saw the full moon earlier that night, so thought that it was just shrouded by clouds.

We found out later it was a total lunar eclipse which we just happened to witness.

Anyway, as we look back at the pictures of the past few weeks, we observe:
1) our boy is filling out- look at those cheeks!
2) he looks less like an alien, though he was a cute alien
3) we can't help but stare at him
4) we obsesssively take pictures of him

Check out his faces:

Since the last post, Isaac has:
1) taken his first tub bath (see slide show below)
2) started lifting his neck more (have video, will try to insert)
3) started taking breast milk from a bottle (yeah, Dan can help with feeding!)
4) successfully peed on both his parents and his pediatrician
5) gained almost 2 pounds (that's like Su gaining 30 pounds)
6) started vocalizing (we catch his voice once in a while amidst the chirps and grunts)

Below is the slide show of Isaac in action, places he's been, people he's seen....enjoy!

Su & Dan,

Congratulations! Isaac is gorgeous, and you all look great and happy. I wish I wasn't so technologically challenged--the blog is great. Jillian is 3 months old now, smiling, laughing, singing, and having a great new life. Fortunately for me, she is a good sleeper--knock on wood!

Hi Su and Dan, I really enjoy the Isaac diaries. What a great way to share the latest news. Come visit Northern Virginia soon. You know everyone wants to hold the baby at GCC. I call first dibs. xo Maureen P
