If you haven't heard yet, Isaiah has started to do the combat crawl this past week! He hasn't quite mastered it yet, but when he does actually do it, he gets moving. He seems more motivated when there's a toy in front of him, and he gets easily frustrated when he doesn't go anywhere at all. I remember Makenna going through the same stage, and her level of frustration was about the same. I wonder who they get that from?? Both Enz & I are in a state of disbelief, because once Isaiah truly gets going, we'll have two mobile children. Sure, it'll be some time before he's up on two feet, but just knowing that he can move freely on his own is a bit frightening. And with Makenna as his guide, we're in for some real exciting times!
Our little Mak monster continues to add more words to her vocabulary. We've noticed how she's become a lot more observant of her surroundings, and how she tries so hard to let us know when she recognizes something. It's fun to have a conversation with her because she listens so intently, and if we say something she doesn't agree with, she'll pause before saying "no." It's like she has to let us know she's thinking before giving us the definitive answer! This one is going to give us trouble in the near future... Have a great weekend!
