I've noticed it for a little while now, but I'm actually starting to think Isaac is saying stuff! He seems to be growing up so much faster than the girls. I think he says, "ni-ni" (night-night), "ah-duh" (all done), "nuh-nuh" (no no) and "daayee" (daddy). When I go in his room to put him down for his nap, he will say, "ni-ni" and shake his head no. I think I've even heard him say, "ni-ni ah-duh" meaning he didn't want to go to bed. Of course, he says, "daayee" a lot. :o)
He's still fascinated by the dogs. He'll peer into their faces while they're on the couch or ottoman. And he's finally starting to play with is toys some! He still prefers whatever you have, but at least he's picking them up now. He may be ready to drop a nap - OH NOOOO! I need that nap to get lessons done! He's started waking up at 6:00 instead of 7:00. NOOOO! Maybe it's his tooth coming in!
Emily Anna is really getting into her beads business. Too bad she doesn't have ready customers; they've set up shop in the basement. She's also getting quite proficient at her different hairstyles. She will make a good babysitter in a few years. She's getting lots of training now with Isaac and helping with 4's,5's & K's at church.
Elisha is still Elisha. You'll usually find her curled up somewhere with a book like I used to be. However, she's a speed reader; I was not. She is also refining her voices. They talk to each other in this funny "English" accent; she cracks me up with the things she says. She helps on the puppet team at church.
Erynn has quite a voice too, but what stands out to me about her is her singing and her prayers. She remembers things quite well and will faithfully pray for them, even of her own volition. She's also warming up to Boogie more and more. She can watch him now for a few minutes at a time. He likes to run through his new play gym with her.
