Our Isaac is getting to be SO grown up. He's talking up a storm. The process of language acquisition is amazing. He went from communucating with one or two words to four and five word sentences almost over night. And he seems to use new words nearly every day. How is that even possible? Nowadays he's speaking in nearly complete (and grammatically correct!) sentences. Again... amazing. If you don't have a kid, you should really look into it. I highly recommend them. :)
Brandon and I also found out over the summer that we were going to be having another baby! Unfortunately, we lost the baby when we were 10 weeks along. It's been a rough couple of months, but God is good. He has been faithful to answer our prayers throughout this difficult time, and the love and support we've had from both our biological and church families has been a testiment to His faithfulness. My heart and mind are in a much better place than they were with our first miscarriage, which I am incredibely grateful for. While the tears still come from nowhere from time to time, my joy is soundly intact.

So pleased with the way these turned out!
Emily and her beautiful mother. Can you believe she's due in a few weeks?!
In preparation for the shower, I decided it was finally time to get around to making the shower curtain for the bathroom that Brandon and I have recently re-decorated. We went for a much more contemporary style for this room that is in the rest of our home. We wanted to have more of a masculine feel since this is, primarily, Isaac's bathroom. I searched high and low for a pre-fab curtain, but to no avail. Then began my quest for a geometric patterned fabric in a yellow-on-gray color scheme. It doesn't exist. So... we improvised! While the shower curtain is certainly not as perfect as it would be if my Mom had made it, I'm pretty happy with it. This was my first solo sewing endeavor, so I'm proud that it was, for the most part, a success! Here are some before and after shots of Isaac's "new" bathroom. Although, it's weird... he hasn't said anything about it yet. :)
Before the "remodel"
So hard to get a good shot of this....
The curtain and panels hang from the celing

And he had.
AND he said so, too. Genious. Sheer genious. Sir Isaac himself.

As Isaac sat on his potty yesterday (yes! really! potty training already!), he became anxious to get off and walk around. Not having finished his... um... "business".... yet, I began trying to distract him with other things. Our conversation was as follows:
"Isaac, where's your nose?". He pointed right to his nose.
"That's right, Isaac! Where is your ear?". Wiggles his ear.
"There's your ear! Now show me - where is your mouth?". Says mouth and puts his hand over his mouth.
"Good job, Isaac! Can you show Mommy where your hair is?". Isaac rubs his hand over his hair.
"You're such a smart boy, Isaac. Can you show Mommy your cheeks?". Isaac reaches behind his back, touches his tushy and says "boo-chis". (translation: booty cheeks)
Needless to say, roaring laughter ensued! :)
