Water Fountain

I brought my pretty water fountain out the other day not realizing what a lure it would be for Isaac. I may have to put it back away or in an area that he can't get to. I placed it on the baker's rack in our kitchen which Isaac can't reach, but he pushes the stool that Great Grandpa Dick made over to the baker's rack and climbs up so he can reach! I guess I made a mistake by letting him see what it was at first becuase now he wants to play in it all the time! He likes to drop the rocks into the water and then get them out...all to start over again. Here are some cute pictures of it. The last one, he is making the sign for water. He doesn't have the coordination to make the "W", so he just puts his pointer finger to his lips.

On the CI front, not much is new. He is trying to vocalize more when he wants something. He knows to make the sound "muh, muh, muh" when he wants me to pick him up. I always say "up, up, up" and the way Isaac says it, it sounds like the word "up" except he keeps putting the "m" in the front of the sound. Whenever he wants me to open a box or anything, he makes the sound "ooooo" for open. Those are the only things I can think of right now, but I am sure I will have new things to report soon.

As for the big boy bed battle...well, let's just say that the score is now Isaac-3, Mommy-0.

Hi there! I could tell Isaac was signing water, Ethan does the same thing, only he keeps all fingers open, like mom. So cute! What a big boy! Good luck with the new bed! Does Isaac point to his ear to tell you when he hears something new? That is what Ethan was doing in the picture with his glasses. He can't point to his ear, so he points to his head to say "I hear that".

Hello! Love your pictures, especially the Christmas one. You have a beautiful family! Good luck with the bed battle. We found our daughter in her closet once when we tried to put her in a BIG bed. She would climb out and get in bed with one of her brothers after we tucked her in. We even put up a baby gate in the doorway to keep her in her room. One night we couldn't find her anywhere and that was when we found her in the closet! Isaac looks like he is doing good. Maybe he likes the sound of the water and the rocks when he plays with the fountain??

Thank you for leaving a comment on Drew's blog. We will check in on Isaac frequently.

I am so inspired by the stories of CI children. It gives me great hope for Drew. There have been many surprises along this journey, one of which is the network of parents helping each other through this. I am so thankful for that.

I look forward to continued updates on Isaac and wish him and his new sibling the best!
