I can live with those numbers!


Day 16
Isaac and daddy just playing around!

Lucas making a "bed" on the couch!


Day 15
Lucas was hiding in our closet. Here are his feet. That silly boy!


Day 14
Brothers! Lucas loves Isaac, he likes to go up to him and give him lots of kisses and hugs. He blows raspberries on his belly and goes "Ohhh eee ahhh ahhh" like a monkey in his ear.


Day 14
Isaac's second major "owie". I sat him down on the counter and he was too fast for me. He grabbed the razor and cut his little thumb. He didn't seem to mind however, he was just fascinated by the band aid on his finger. He kept trying to suck his thumb but I kept pulling it out, he was not happy!
I know it is supposed to be one picture but I couldn't help but post this one. Isn't he adorable!


Day 13

We took the boys to see this movie! Grandma and Grandpa McCabe joined in on the fun. Lucas liked it however, when they were in the incinerator Lucas actually hid his eyes. Isaac did well, fell asleep half way through!


Day 12
We called daddy at work and Lucas decided to share his food via the phone. He will also pick up books and try to show the person on the other line the book!

Day 11

Lucas loves all toy weapons. I have no idea where he got this love, but I guess it is just an ingrained boy trait. We went to Katie (Morales) Fults reception and Lucas thought that that was the perfect place to bring a shot gun. He carried it around the entire time. When we got back, Lucas saved us by getting all the flies on the shed. It also doesn't help that Lucas's new favorite rewind is Jumanji.


Day 10
Grace and Pa-Pa. This was our farewell/fathers day dinner at Outback Steakhouse.


Day 9

Grace, Isaac and James! Those two just adored Isaac. Crista was telling James to get his shoes on and James said "But mom, the baby will cry and he needs me to make him laugh!"


Day 8

My dad got us into the Food Conference (he is in charge of the mess halls in Iwakuni). We ate lots of food and picked up lots of samples. It was a great day!


Day 7
We went to visit Pa-Pa at his hotel, had lunch with him and while he went to conferences, we swam in the pool! Much nicer then the beach I must say because, no sand!


Day 6
James and Pa-Pa playing in the sand at the beach.


Day 5

Isaac discovering the baby in the mirror!


Day 4

Out to lunch at Wendy's with Aunt Crista. Right after this I showed Crista the ins and outs of couponing. Let's just say that she is addicted!


I was down in FL this last week so most of the pictures involve my sister, her children, my dad and just Isaac!

Day 3

First day I was down in FL. Crist took me to a dinner with some of her friends and they had this adorable 5 week old pit bull. He was so sweet. I had to take a picture with him. (ps I don't know why I always look like I am grinning like a fool in all of my pictures!)

Day 2

I thought at this was just hilarious. Every night before bed we read the boys a story. Lucas loves to look at the books when we are done. He always asks "Can I? Can I?" and reaches for the book. Isaac has taken an interest in the books, more for eating the knowledge!

So a lady I know is doing this "A Year in the Life of The ____" as sort of a journal for her family. So, I am going to try this out. Everyday you take a picture of something mundane and then you write about it. So here starts........

A Year in the Life of The Meyer Family!

June 9, 2010

Isaac is such a smiley baby. Here he is hanging with mom while Lucas is laying down for his nap. What Isaac doesn't realize is that in about 10 minutes, Lucas's fate will become his fate!

7 months old

I can't believe a whole month has already gone by! My baby is 7 months old. Crazy! I was thinking the other day how if we want to have another baby and not have them that far apart, I am going to probably get pregnant in the next 7 months. Time just flies! I love not being pregnant but Sean and I both agree that our family needs some more members. Here are some pictures of recent happenings!

Isaac has become quite a charmer. Every passer-byer stops and smiles and coos at him. He in turn loves it and smiles back.
Here he is charming us again! (If you can't tell, he has two bottom teeth). What I love about this picture is that he has nice after-bath hair! Nice and fluffy!
Lucas decided that this was the best place to eat his cheese roll up. My oldest, he drives he crazy! Always into things and on things and in things...... But he is adorable! We have started to cut a few things like how much TV he watches, food colorings, processed foods and sugars in hopes that it will help with his attention, his language and his skin. From making an effort to include more healthy oils in his diet, the bumps on his face and ears have completely gone away! (Something we asked the doctors about when he was younger and they just said it was because of his skin being dry and we should bath him less and lotion him more. After trying that, nothing changed. Two days of just making sure he gets his oils, all clear!) His behavior is changing, we are no longer using TV as a way to contain him and are getting at the root of some of his behavior outbursts. He is talking a lot more and things just seem to be looking up!
The best part of this last month is seeing Lucas and Isaac bond. Lucas loves to blow raspberries on Isaac's tummy, show him books, be silly so Isaac laughs, asks "What happened?" when Isaac cries, etc. It is nice to see them getting along. I took the bumpers off of Isaac's crib (he is quite the mover now) and discovered that they are very good "blinders" when you have two kids in one room. Lucas's now goes to sleep in his bed while Isaac falls asleep on ours. When they are both out, we move Isaac into his crib. If not, we hear giggling and talking for a long time!
Okay, now this is just crazy. On chance, I managed to snap a picture of Isaac doing the same thing with a blanket as Lucas does. Weird, huh! I don't know, it must be genetic!

The worst thing that happened this month, Isaac got his first major injury! He fell off the couch (now I won't deny that this is the first time this has happened but this was the first with major damage). Now, don't think that I am some neglectful mother but when you are sitting on the couch, playing with your baby and your oldest needs a drink of water, you plan on just being gone for like, 30 seconds. I don't know how Isaac does it but he manages to fall off the couch in that 30 seconds. This time there was major blood because he fell in a way that ripped the skin that attaches your upper lip to your gums and skinned his lip. It bled and bled. Sean was home and being recently certified as a EMT took Isaac to do a little exam. I was so impatient. I was like, "Give me my baby so I can comfort him!"
Other then that, things are pretty mundane. Going to FL on friday, whoo hoo!
