More Doctors Appointments

I am sitting at Doernbecher's Children's Hospital in the waiting room as I type this post. We are here for Israel's Pre-Opp appointment. We have been to two of our three appointments here today. They are basically going over all of the legal stuff, signing papers, going over everything that could possibly happen etc. We are all here...Jon, the three kids and myself. Thankfully they have been pretty good about being on time today, which is wonderful! Last time we were here for well over 4 hours! That makes for a long day with a baby who needs to nap!

Israel's surgery is scheduled for December 30th in the morning. If you aren't sure what I am referring to...Click Here for more details on an earlier post. I am feeling pretty good about everything, and thankful that his surgery is so minor, comparatively to what it could possibly be. The doctors are hopeful about the positive outcome and honestly, I am just looking forward to the surgery being a thing of the past!

FOOD! there is no hiding the chunky rolls on little Izzy's legs anymore or his adorable squeezable cheeks..nope! He is quite the little chubster these days and I would have to say, I'm not sure the doctors are going to be worried about his weight any longer! Which will be a relief to me! Izzy loves to eat! Bottles, baby food...and anything you have! He now watches every bite we put in our mouths and opens his mouth at the same time we do...just hoping we might send something his way! We have slowly been introducing him to new foods, little by little. So far bread and fruit are a huge hit! On...and chocolate too! :-)

Cluck Cluck Chicken...

Sorry my Halloween post is a bit delayed! Life happens and I often forget all about my blog! Halloween was a blast! We were blessed with awesome warm weather! Israel loved trick-or-treating with his big brother and sister! He even got to try out some candy!

Sitting Up

Yes, it's true. Israel can sit up! It's been such a fun and exciting adventure for him and us, learning something new. He LOVES to sit! It's pretty much the only way he wants to be anymore! No more of the laying down business! No thank you!

He figured it out in about a week and has only fallen a few times since then. Sitting opens up a whole new world of possibilities for Izzy. He loves being able to play with so many new fun toys. He is such a smart little guy and I love watching his mind at work.
