8 week updates

Isaac is rapidly approaching his 2 month anniversary!  He is a happy, smiley and VERY hungry baby!  His 8 week milestones include more smiling, cooing and focusing in on us when we sing to him or talk to him.  He has this really cool talent of lifting one eyebrow, which delights all of us and I really hope he will be able to do this consciously when he's older.  No matter how hard I try, I cannot lift one eyebrow!  He can also squeal with delight... he did this while lying in the cradle last night after the lights were out and before he fell asleep.  I posted him sleeping through the night last week.  He continues to sleep from 12:00 till about 5:30am with an occasional exception for a 3am feeding.  It is certainly a relief to get some longer intervals of sleep.  Momma needs her rest too!
He has all his siblings around him... hence the big smile!

Isaac loves his David!

And in other happenings this week... David and Emily took 3 days of standardized tests this week.  This was Emily's second time to take the Stanford test and she was excited to do it this year (believe it or not!)... She said, "Oh, I love the Standford test!  It's pretty easy, they have cool snacks and we don't have to do school when we get home in the afternoons!"  So there you have it.  It was David's first time testing and he did great.  He was disappointed that we won't find out his scores for a few weeks though.  My homeschooled boy is used to finding out how he does on things pretty much immediately since I do the grading.  We'll see...

In other news, to reward the kids on their first day of testing, I renewed our pool passes and took them to our local pool.  They were pleased to see another boy who took the Stanford test with them there that day.  The water was freezing... but they didn't care.  And they are going to have a very difficult time finishing up their school work this year.  My plan is to school through the end of the month and then take a much needed summer break.  It can't come soon enough!

Being silly...

Yes, I sat in the shade and watched the kids while chatting with Isaac.  It's a tough job but someone's got to do it!

And last, I took this one last night of Isaac in his very appropriately labeled 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' pajamas he got from his Nana.  This was taken at about 10:00 at a night.  He doesn't look too tired does he?  He didn't nod off till after 11:30... but treated me to sleep till 5am!  And by the way, these PJs swallowed him about a month ago and now he fills them out quite nicely.
