10 months, Tooth #3, Summer Surprise Day 5


We’ve had what you might call a full, rich day here in the Deibel household. First of all, Isaac, our little Man Cub, is 10 months old today!


Isaac currently weighs 23 pounds, 4 ounces and is in the 90th percentile for weight! They didn’t measure him, but the doc says he doesn’t look overweight, so he’s just got good, strong bones, and is a tall boy. He’s not crawling yet, but he’s starting to figure out that maybe he can. He has started clapping and waving bye-bye. He says Dada and Isaac (Iiiiiii-dah). He seems to use Isaac interchangably for himself and Mommy, which makes perfect sense if you know this little boy at all. He’s a total Mommy’s boy, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. 🙂 He adores his sisters, and is visibly restless when they are not around. He also loves women/girls. In particular, he loves our neighbor, and the waitresses at the cafe we frequent. He wants to stand constantly, and is starting to take a few steps while holding onto both our hands. He love, love, loves bananas. If he’s not eating whatever I have for his dinner that night, if he watches me mash a banana into it, he’ll devour it. He also love teething biscuits and apple-flavored rice cakes. He’s the happiest baby I’ve ever met, and he loves his sleep. He happily sleeps 12-14 hours a night and 2-4 hours during the day. We never planned on having this little guy here, but we sure can’t imagine our life without him!

Today was also our Day 5 of the summer surprise box from Granny and Papa!

Hannah got another lovely dress-up dress, which if it hadn’t have been for the birthday party she went to, she’d have worn it all day! (sorry, I didn’t get a pic of her wearing it yet)

Cailyn got yummy snacks!

Finally, our day ended on quite the bang! After Hannah having been at a birthday party for over 5 hours, and Mommy and Cailyn swimming with our friend, K, who was staying with us for a few days, we collected pizza for dinner and settled in for a quiet evening. Well, quiet was not meant to be! Hannah bit her pizza wrong and disturbed her loose tooth…
Daddy worked his magic touch and after much anxiety the tooth came out! Hannah immediately snagged a long cuddle from Daddy….

And after a few minutes was rejoicing in her new found toothy freedom!
