8 months!

Above: Isaac lives up to his dinosaur nickname.

Welcome to the 8 month update, chock full of videos which I can't figure how to include in this post.

The videos above are (I can only figure out how to post one at a time):
1) Isaac the city boy discovering grass for the first time
2) Isaac learning the life skill of flushing (now we just need to get potty trained and learn how to wash our hands after touching the toilet)
3) Isaac eagerly dropping his toy and going after a keyboard

So in January, we went to Florida for the wedding of our friends, Diana and Jim. It was Isaac's first flight, and he slept through most of it. He can't wait to go back- he met Pooh and Tigger, went swimming in a pool and saw the ocean for the first time.

Isaac was extremely proud of himself when he was able to pull up on his crib railing and stand. I got this shot right after it happened (7 mos).

Spring is here on Roosevelt Island and the cherry blossoms are blooming! Reminds us of DC without all the insane crowds. This was our first run around the island as a family using the jogging stroller that Dan extensively researched and picked out way back when Isaac was a mere lima bean in the womb.

Other assorted pictures from the past few months.

See you next time!

That video of the grass was the saddest thing I've seen in a long time. It was a sigh of relief when Isaac finally reached the island of parental legs. It was even more painful to watch as my connection is slow and so the video was really slow. I thought he would never make it.
