I noticed that I didnt get a 7 week picture.......I guess the holidays are to blame....but that's ok I have an excuse....see Isaak had a hard job this Christmas being Santa... as you can see he was sleepy after delivering all those presents.
Anyway, I am convinced that week 7 was a growth spurt for Mr. Isaak. He did ok during the day but he was constantly eating, and was up at least twice each night. I couldn't figure it out because he had done so well the week before. Then we left last Tuesday to spend Christmas with both of our families. And......to mommy and daddy's surprise he put on his best behavior and slept through each night that we were away??? I had prepared myself for the exact opposite. It was a nice treat though. We've been home a few nights and he's been a little inconsistent but I think he's just adjusting to being back at home...and not being held 24/7.
My little Isaak was loved so much last week. It blessed me so much to see everyone just love on him. I mean, I'm his mommy so of course my love for him is indescribable, but to see my dad (his Pa), my grandma (his Mimi), Amick's mom (his MaMaw) and the rest of our families just melt with him meant so much to me. It meant so much in fact that the trip back home was quite depressing. Sunday was rough too. I miss my family so much, and that time was so special to me (this year especially). Having a son has changed everything I know, and my family is just one thing that has remained constant. I didn't realize how much it affected me until I had to leave. At least I have my mom here, she is my breath of fresh air, just by calling to check on Isaak, or just when she stops by just to see how much he's grown. It's another reminder that I'm not alone. I couldn't imagine raising a family somewhere completely away from all my family........ i couldn't do it.
Ok, enough of the sad stuff. GOOD NEWS, our sweet boy has started smiling. We are getting a few good smiles each day, and I never knew how rewarding it would be. The other night we went to Hardees because Amick has become obsessed with their thickburgers....anyway, we were smiling and talking in that high pitched baby talk, and Isaak grinned soooooo big his eyes lit up. We both started laughing, and realized how silly we must have looked in the restaurant. Oh well, it made my day.
More good news, it looks like Isaak will get to meet his first girl cousin in a week. Baby Taylor will arrive most likely next Monday, I cannot wait. I am so proud of Tonya and Danny... I can't explain how excited I am for them and how impatient I am to finally meet her. Please pray that everything goes well!!!!!!!! YAY for babies.
Well I will leave you with his 8 week picture. (AHHH, my baby is almost 2 months old!!!!!!!!!!!)
