Awhile ago we taught Isaac the First Article of Faith which he memorized. Each time he would say it we would cheer and tell him that he did a really good job. After awhile I guess we weren't reacting well enough to his reciting because Josh had him say it to my Grandma. He began, "We believe in God the Eternal Father, (then he got a sheepish little smile and said) and in Isaac!" We all laughed so hard! We tried and tried to get him to say it the correct way again but I am not sure we will ever hear it the right way again! He even said it to our pediatrician with his little change. Isaac will do ANYTHING to get people to laugh. And he is pretty good at it.
Isaac is a very obedient little boy. The other day he started to throw a tantrum because I told him not to do something he wanted to do. Out of frustration I said, "Isaac, please don't cry right now!" He looked at me trying now to control his crying and with a quivering lip said, "Please cry, Mom?" So obedient that he even asks me if he can cry!
When we were at my brother's wedding reception a week ago we looked over and Isaac had all of the kids at the wedding sitting in a little group in front of him. Isaac was performing lots of silly tricks to get them to laugh. It was working! They were laughing hysterically! This went on for about 15 minutes. We caught some of it on film...I will have to see if I can get Josh to download it sometime.
Luke is getting so big! No really. He is 6 months and somewhere in the 20-23 lb range. I will let you know for sure in a few days when he gets his wellness checkup. Someone in the ward commented to me that he and another very big little baby boy we live by, are going to be the "linebackers of the ward." I am feeling very ready for this kid to be able to crawl!
My favorite part of the day with Luke is early in the morning when I am first waking up. I usually sleep with him and wake up with him in the crook of my arm squirmming around letting me know it is time to get up. Most mornings when I open my eyes and look down at him, he looks up at me with and enormous grin! I wouldn't trade that moment everyday for anything!
Happy Mother's Day Mom and Trudy! To two amazing mother's who have affected my life enourmously. Thankyou! I love you!
For my brother's wedding we got the boys and Josh matching ties. They all wore them again for me for mother's day!
I like to call this picture "Luke Suave!"
Tough Guy Isaac!
Luke and his Great Grandpa Bushnell!
Josh caught Luke's adorable smile! His whole body wiggles when he does this smile
When Luke is sad in the car Isaac holds his hand to help him be happy.
Josh caught a very proud Isaac stacking candles. I don't know why but this picture of Isaac by the waterfall really reminds me of Josh.
Luke and Grandpa Whiting. My dad has a way with babies!
This is funny to know. Almost everytime we take a picture of Luke his eyes get REALLY wide. I guess the flash startles him so it has been really difficult most of his life to get pictures of him where he is making a normal face...they are pretty funny though!
