Daddy's Boy

Between Good Friday and taking Monday off for his birthday, Ish had a 4 day weekend.  Little Ish is not used to having his daddy around all day for so many days in a row, and boy, did he have a blast!  This morning when Ish left for work, Little Ish began to cry. As if the teary departure wasn't precious enough, he spent the next hour saying "Dada? Dada?!" over and over again.  It was like he had lost his best friend.  This resulted in a call to Ish at work which so far has kept the little guy much happier.

Milestone Mania

Before having Little Ish, I had always heard that children grow and change so quickly; one day they can't do something and the next they are doing it like a pro.  I tended to think that was a bit of a hyperbole, and in the case of Little Ish the only thing he has gone from not doing at all to doing really well is sitting (but that is old news).  This week has been a pretty amazing week of milestones and changes though. 

Pulling up- On Monday, Little Ish surprised us by pulling himself up in his crib, and then later he pulled himself up on the coffee table. Admittedly, Little Ish has been able to pull himself to a squat and a kneel for quite some time.  He also pulled himself to what appeared to be a stand a few weeks ago while in his high chair which resulted in quite the fall.  I don't count the highchair incident though since it was so singular in nature.

Clapping- This may not be a formal milestone, but it is really cute.  On Wednesday, Little Ish started clapping for the first time. Now, if anyone says "hooray!", he starts clapping. 

First word- When Little Ish is being fussy, one of the few things that always calms him down is letting him talk on the phone.  After a particularly fussy Thursday morning, I called Ish on his lunch break in hopes of calming the little guy down.  When Ish was talking to him, Little Ish responded with "Dada!"  and then looked at me with a big smile on his face as if to say "Look what I just did Mom!  Did you hear me? Did you?!"

High-Five- Another informal milestone.  Little Ish now gives high-fives.

Caught Sitting!

I have been trying to capture a picture of my little guy sitting for almost 2 months now.  Finally, yesterday, I was able to get a single snapshot of this milestone.  As soon as I took the picture, he crawled after me (or really, my camera).
The lighting is terrible, but I am just excited to have finally caught him in the act of sitting.

Blueberry yogurt for the win!

Despite the massive yogurt beard, he did consume several ounces of yogurt.
