Wholly Guacamole!!!!

Cory always makes fun of me because I'm afraid of birds. I only watched about 5 minutes of The Birds, but that was enough for me. ENOUGH!!! One time I went to Hanalei Bay on Oahu and spent the entire time in the water to avoid the birds all over the beach, which says a lot because my other great fear happens to be sharks, but I figured I'd take my chances with the sharks rather than the birds. I think I read once that you are more likely to die from getting hit on the head by a coconut than bitten by a shark. Weird because I definitely don't fear coconuts at all.

Isaak, Leona and I went on a walk to the new grill that opened up in our neighborhood to check it out. I promised Isaak ice cream if he did a good job and walked the entire time. I need to find that kid a scooter, but we live in a land of insane hills so I don't know if that would help. Maybe. Back to the story. We had finished eating our fries and Isaak got a lovely twist cone and I was thinking about how muc…

no googling at 2am!!!

Remember that Chloe ate a snail? Well that night Isaak had some frozen yogurt. He was playing with Chloe in his room while he ate it. Afterwards he ran up to me and said, "Guess what? I shared." He was so proud of himself. I asked him what he had shared and he announced with great pride that he had shared not only his chocolate yogurt, but his white yogurt too. I was a little worried because Chloe hasn't really began eating solids. I told Isaak I was so happy that he had shared and gently reminded him that Chloe wasn't eating food yet. About 15 minutes later Chloe puked. I thought--oh well there it is. Her poor little tummy wasn't ready for that yogurt, sugar, chocolate goodness. I was relieved and put her to bed. She woke up shortly after midnight and I nursed her thinking she might be hungry, but when she finished she puked all over. I was soaked, the sheets were soaked and her pajamas were soaked.

She went right back to sleep and I debated if I should wake her…

Come on in....

Yesterday Isaak was exhausted but he avoided sleep valiantly for about 1.5hours so I finally succumbed and let him get back up. Chloe was sleeping, so Isaak and I ventured outside to play while Chloe slept. I actually read and Isaak decided he was going to play football/rugby with some of the neighborhood kids. The boys he was playing football with are about 10-12years old and there were about 6 of them. They let him play for about 45 minutes in which time Chloe woke up and we were both playing outside watching when Isaak announced that he was throwing a surprise party. I was quite surprised by this revelation and wasn't even completely sure that he knew what he was saying, but he invited all the boys into our house to his surprise party. I know at this point that Isaak came as a completely different personality other than my own because I was painfully shy and would never have dared do such a thing. Isaak not only dared, but proceeded to tell all the boys what games they were go…

if little boys were like stars...........

We read books with Isaak every day. I love it. Its my favorite time of day because we just sit there and read. Sometimes Chloe reads with us and tries to eat the pages of the book, but usually she just crawls around on the floor and plays with toys and Isaak is usually taking away from her. We recently read a book called If boys were like waffles. The last pages says, "If boys were like stars then the night sky would be FIREWORKS!"  Isaak is definitely a firework. He's so full of life, wonder, awe and just beginning to truly understand all this crazy world around him.
 We have been having an incredibly difficult time with Isaak since Chloe was born. Sheesh. It makes me exhausted just thinking about those days. He whined constantly and fought everything I said or tried to get him to do. He didn't want to eat, he didn't want to go to the park, he didn't want to do anything I suggested. I let clothes go. He wore some pretty interesting outfits that always involv…
