Isaac [4 months]


Isaac, you are just so sweet..and squishy..and lovable. 
You are FOUR months old...and growing daily!
I love your smiles, it makes your whole face light up. When you smile, you remind me of what Christian looked like, and when you're serious you remind me of Noah. But you are you..and that's how you should be! Most people that see the four of you boys say, "they all belong!" And you each do :)


Generally speaking, you are a happy baby, content with sitting in the bouncer seat or under your little play gym/mat. Sometimes, you feel like you need to be held and if I am in the middle of something I carry you around in this baby carrier...which you seem to enjoy :) It has become a lifesaver when it comes to taking you shopping with me!!

Some of your faces just crack me up...
the one on the left I feel like you are intently listening, as though you are a therapist just hanging onto every word....and the one on the right, you have your happy eyes!!

 You had your first Easter this past month! You looked so handsome. 

Your hair is growing, it stands straight up, but its just the softest light brown, chick-like hair. Jonah still loves to rub his cheek against your head, and say, "Isaac so sofffft." He loves you dearly, and can go from being the biggest stinker to his older brother to being ever so gentle with you, giving you kisses all over your face. 


You have the bluest eyes..so clear and blue..that again reminds me of Noah. You have really begun recognizing where I am at..and have even cried if you can see me, but I'm not holding you (I love you too buddy). You startle fairly easy, (even very easy depending on the sound)...you poor lip quivers and then you let out a big ol' wail! 

Your auntie had a new baby girl cousin on April 27...Abriella Jean! You were cheering her on by wearing this shirt she bought you. 

You have been sticking your hands in your mouth and DROOLING like a faucet. But you don't mind...you just think its funny :) You also think "peek-a-boo" is funny, and pretty much anything if you aren't tired and you're being talked to! You are ticklish, especially if I "get" you with my mouth on your belly/chest. I love to hear your laugh!

You love your Daddy, and while I'm a work you get to hang out with him! Thankfully you drink from a bottle okay, otherwise that would make for one sad mama. When I come home, the first time I feed you, it seems as though you eat to make sure I don't leave for a little while :) You sure are a snuggly little guy, you like to be held...and we like to hold you!

You eat about every 3-4 hours during the day, and still wake up about 2-3 times at night. You go to bed around 8-8:30, I feed and rock you (because we both like that!). You have learned how to roll from your belly to back, so when you do that you wake up and if you're still tired you are NOT happy about it. If you are done sleeping anyway, I'll come in your room and you are just smiling so big and making the sweetest happy baby noises. 

You weigh around 17 pounds and I'm curious to see how long you are when we go to the doctor. You seem long to me, longer than the other boys were, but we'll see. You're wearing 6 month, some even 9 month outfits and size 2 diapers. I'm so grateful you are growing and healthy...a little bit sad, just because I know its happening all too quickly!


I'm excited to get to know your personality the more and more you grow. You are pretty easy going..you cry if you are startled, are super tired, or if you just want your mama. All your brothers love you, and you respond to each of them with the biggest smile if they talk to you! Jonah by far shows the most affection, and somehow you don't seem to mind the extreme smothering and kisses!

 Isaac Jesse, you are loved. I pray you continue to be healthy and happy...you bring us so much joy!!
