Going from 2 to 3 has had its interesting moments, but over all, we have all adjusted well. Reese and Isaac love their new brother. Reese loves to help with getting diapers and tickling his tummy. Isaac likes to turn his music on and off on his bouncy chair. I have ventured out a few places with all the kids and just me. We have made 2 successful trips to Target and a not so successful trip to the doctor''s office. Marcus and Isaac both had appointments and they happened to be in the most evil part of the day for my kids - 3:30pm. We successfully made it through the 20 minute waiting room wait. We got back to the a room and ended up waiting an hour, they were so backed up. The kids did really well until the last half hour. We were waiting for Isaac''s shots and it was complete chaos...Reese and Isaac were running up and down the halls, Isaac was yelling, but at this point, I just let them loose! We did make and found out that everyone was healthy...Isaac is 26 pounds and 33 inches. Marcus had gained a pound in one week! Very exciting. Marcus continues to be hooked up the Apnea monitor until mid-August. We have not had any episodes since the very beginning, so we are very confident that he maturing and getting where he needs to be.
Isaac has recieved 4 new teeth. It was a very challenging time. He was cranky and fussy. We are happy to say that that time has passed. He is still working on puttng words together. His newest is "Dora." He used lots of fluctuation in his voice to make things sound like, "All done." or "I want that." He is kind of making up his own language, but we understand it. Isaac loves animals. He loves going to the zoo and we were able to go to the Underwater Advenutre at MOA and he loved it!
Reese continues to be my helper. She loves to help both brothers even if they don''t want the help. She loves to go to gymnastics. She is always to the first to volunteer to demonstrate. Both her and Isaac love spending time at the park and going on bike rides. She is beginning to understand hide and seek and tag. She loves to read books and her imagination is really starting to soar. She will ride on her trike and make different stops at Cathy''s, the gas station, the grocery store, etc. She is 100% potty trained, which has been awesome! 1 down, 2 to go!
