Farmer's Market

We had a great weekend. First of all, Isaiah had his 9-month checkup on Friday, and here are his stats:

20 lbs 12 oz - 50-75th percentile
30" Long - 90th percentile
19.5 cm head circumference - beyond the 95th percentile (he has a big noggin!)

...and the best part was no shots this time! Woo Hoo!

Friday night, we took Isaiah to his first baseball game to see the Boise Hawks. He thought it was so cool. He was able to see the whole field and was really interested in all the people in the crowd.

Saturday morning we woke up early and went to the Farmer's Market downtown with Lisa and Shaun. It wasn't too crowded, so we were able to walk around and browse all the booths. It was also pretty cold that morning...only 55 degrees at 9:30. Lisa took these beautiful little pictures of Isaiah so of course I have to post them for everyone to see...

Isaiah is on the Move!

Sooo...Isaiah does the fastest Army crawl I have ever seen! He has been slowly scooting around for the past couple of weeks, going from one side of his room to the other (maybe 4 feet across the floor), and all of a sudden, he has decided to go double-time. Today I was working in the kitchen making corn bread muffins to take to a BBQ, and Isaiah was playing with some toys in the adjoining living room. I would glance over the counter every couple of minutes to make sure he was doing alright and I could also hear him making a bunch of cute noises. Normally, I can tell when he is cruising around because he makes dramatic grunting noises, but this time he was being very sneaky. All of a sudden, he started giggling and i hear this "SMACK SMACK SMACK!" ...more giggles. I glance over the counter and I can't see him in the living room. Panic sets in until I notice he made his way all the way into the kitchen and was right below me. The "SMACK" was him slapping his hands on the hardwood floor. It must have felt a little different than the carpet he is used to, and that was funny to him. I think it is time for some baby gates!

Isaiah is also working on pulling himself up. He loves to use his dresser as a jungle gym, pulling out a couple of drawers to give himself some leverage. I always make sure I am right next to him whenever he does's kind of scary-not sure how I feel about it. He also uses his big wooden toy to pull himself up. He always looks around after he does it as if to say: "Do you see how cool I am?" He makes me laugh all day long!
