Bits and Pieces
1) Vance took Isaac on a special date to the zoo on Saturday--the lion and the tiger both roared, and Isaac thought it was the most special event ever...he talked about it all day, and told everyone about it at church the next. After they got home Isaac worked with Vance on a lego tower (see above), and when I tried to take a picture, he practiced his favorite silly faces. For some reason, he loves to cross his eyes while he's eating.
2) Isaac has been getting back into the alphabet with a vengeance...we sing the ABC's almost every naptime, and he loves an alphabet puzzle that he has. Lately he has been sounding out the words we use, trying to figure out what letter the word starts with. He's getting pretty good at it! He'll say, "Dog! That starts with duh, duh, D!" The cutest thing is that Claire has started imititating him...she'll go around saying, "duh, duh, DEEEE!" with a big grin on her face.
4) In general, I am surprised by how he holds onto quotes from books. Our dinner conversations will go something like this: Vance telling me about his day, relating conversations about stem-cell research and etc., then Isaac will start talking to himself, "the guests began to take off their party hats..." and then, "the fat policeman grabbed him by one arm, then thin policeman by the other..." We live our lives in between quotation marks around here.
