His ability to express himself has grown exponentially in the last month. It's been both easier and harder at the same time, because he's also getting more and more frustrated when he can't communicate what his needs and wants are, which in turn leads to meltdowns. His most favorite word to use right now is "No." Everything is "no" even if it is a yes, which is kind of hilarious. I'm looking forward to when "yes" comes into play. Some of his newest additions: swing (his favorite park pastime), food, Jesus, cheese, outside, please, balloon.
Isaac is still a fantastic eater. I couldn't have asked for a happier, more well-rounded little person to feed. For a while now, he has been saying "MM-mmm" to foods that he really likes (he shakes his head a little too when he says it, which is especially cute). It's just the funniest -- and it makes a mama feel proud of what she cooked!
Some recent photos:

|He looks SO much like my dad here.|
|Isaac loves to help mama by brushing his hair and teeth.|
|Not quite sure about the hoodie. It didn't last long.|
|Bath time is goofy time. Eventually more water ends up outside the tub than in it!|
|Kooky post-nap hair.|
|An unfortunately placed black bean… not a dental accident! Ha!|
Every time he gets his hands on this baby saline spray, he immediately puts it to his nose. Unfortunately, when it comes time to actually administer said spray, he isn't nearly as cooperative. Maybe that tells you how often we've had to treat the old toddler snot nose. Between the weather, allergies, and Mothers Day Out/Nursery, I think we've all had the "crud" a couple of times this winter.
You just make my day so very bright and full of life. I thank God over and over for you! Mama loves you so very very much!
