Isak in his awesome frog boots. We also decided it was time to cut Isak's hair because its been almost 6 months and he had started to look rather mullett like.

My first thought was that he had an ear infection because he's had a cold for the past couple days and I couldn't figure out why else he would wake up like that. So using my "motherly instincts" that have been right maybe a handful of times, I took him to the doctor that morning. Well the kid actually was starting an ear infection in his left ear and we started him on some antibiotics. Can I begin to tell you how many times I thought this kid has had an ear infection and its just been teething? I felt bad he was sick but somewhat glad that perhaps after a year and a half I might be figuring something out. He's never had an ear infection and well never had any medicine but tylenol and seems to be loving the yummy tasting amoxicillin and sucks it down with no problem. Anyway, it was a very long day for my sick little boy and the above picture is him when we got home from the doctor. He was such a good boy and held tight to his bunny the whole time we were at the doctor. The doctor was trying to look in his ears and asked isak, "do you have kitties in your ears? where are the kitties?" Isak looked at me and said somthing like, dubba dub a duh? like, "what kitties, where are the kitties mom?". It was funny.
This was our little snowstorm we had here friday night. It only lasted a couple hours but the flakes were huge and we got a good inch or so.
Isak in his new winter coat. Its reversible and in boise state colors. Its pretty puffy and I think he has a hard time getting around in it but he's getting more mobile. It should keep him very warm this winter.

Isak has taken to giving his stuffed animals "rides" on his lawn mower around the kitchen. This started after we started giving isak rides on his lawn mower. He's such a smart boy.
Isak and his beloved rabbit that was rescued yet again from the refridgerator.
I was wiping down some of our doors the other day and Isak started yelling and pointing at me. I gave him the dusting cloth and this is what he started doing. He proceeded to try to wipe down the front of the dishwasher, oven and cupboards. Hopefully he wants to be this helpful when he is older, this could be useful....

My camera is fixed, thanks to a replacement battery charger. I have no idea where the original one went to but perhaps when Isak starts talking in coherent sentences we can find out. At the top of blog is isak cuddling with his doggie. He loves his stuffed animals and we here him every morning in his crib talking to them. Its very cute. This is a little video of Isak "jumping". He has started doing a lot of new things this past week and is growing way too fast. I asked him if he wanted mashed potatoes for lunch today and he looked at me with big eyes and said "yah!" and ran towards his highchair. It was funny. He also tried to stuff his bunny into the produce drawer in our fridge and insisted on taking it with him into the grocery store today and on walk around the neighborhood. Kevin and I aren't nearly as exciting but we're doing fine. Kevin has just gotten the study materials for his CPA exam and I'm really glad I became a nurse because it does not look like fun. Funny how I had to take one big test for my licensing and I get trusted with people's lifes and kevin has to take 4 big tests and audits people. Apparently we know what's important in society.
I'm feeling fine, just getting bigger and this baby seems really active for being so early but hopefully its getting it all out now. I am working myself up to put up a pregnancy picture but I'm not quite there yet.
