He is thoughtful in every way: offering words of encouragement to me when I'm having a bad day or drawing cards, writing notes, and even making "useful" gifts for love ones. One of his latest inventions for our benefit was a 2-dimensional spider trap made from construction paper and a few random scraps that he'd found lying around. It was basically a maze meant to confuse a spider beyond all hope of ever exiting this diabolical trap. Genius.
Isaac is a budding photographer. He has his own little camera to fiddle with, but lately he's been trying his hand at using Mommy's big camera:
He loves pajamas, and I mean really loves them. He tells us so all the time. "Mommy, I just really, really love being in pajamas. They're so comfy!" Not the warm kind, because he instantly overheats in them, but short sleeves and/or shorts just make his day. He's also a homebody. He protests going on errands because he "just likes how comfy it is at home" and can only be persuaded to come along if I promise he can get right back into his jammies the moment we get home.
Isaac's stomach has the unique ability to magically and completely empty upon bedtime, leaving him in a state of near starvation despite the fact that we just gave him a large snack immediately preceding bedtime. It's a scientific marvel. Really.
Favorite shows: Rescue Bots (the preschooler's version of Transformers), Phineas and Ferb, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Star Wars Angry Birds, and Ni No Kuni (a Studio Ghibli video game that we're playing). Favorite food: soups (who knew?), chicken and dumplings, spaghetti and meatballs, pizza, fish and rice, biscuits with jam, all sweets, and all breakfast fare.
And that's our Isaac! It's been fun highlighting each child this week. I love itemizing exactly what I love about what each is going through developmentally at the moment. We love how unique each of our children is - we learn and grow so much as their parents, and there's never a dull moment!
