Izzy Whizzy Woo

Maybe this is all a coincidence, but I have been off dairy and soy for 5 days, and Izzy is already sleeping better. He only woke up THREE times last night. It was like heaven on earth. SERIOUSLY. And as of ten minutes ago, he has been napping for an HOUR. Not thirty minutes - ONE HOUR. Holy guacamole!

Due to all this sleeping, I am feeling especially fond my little boy right now. I feel the need to brag about him, so please indulge me. My baby boy has been busy learning tons of new stuff, and I rarely ever talk about it. So, this post is strictly dedicated to my little Izzy whizzy woo.

Izzy is already 3 months old! Can you believe it? Honestly, I am shocked at how quickly the time with him has passed. Its feels like we just brought him home from the hospital. Yet at the same time, it feels like he has always been a part of our lives, and its hard to remember life without him.

Izzy is a good baby. Yes, he cries for no good reason sometimes, but he is easily consoled and comforted. He is very interested in the world around him, and is content to watch mommy do the dishes or to watch Porgie dance around the living room. This is very bizarre to me, because Porgie wanted to be held constantly when she was a newborn.

Izzy has suddenly started lifting his head off of the floor. He is quite good at it, and I am impressed by his skills. I have scheduled an appointment for his three month photos, and I am excited about getting a tummy time shot.
Izzy can also grab toys and bring them to his mouth. It is so amazing to watch him unfurl his little hand and grasp an object. I know it sounds trivial, but it is truly amazing to witness.

Izzy is the most ticklish baby EVER. He is ticklish around his neck, on his belly, and on his thighs. Just lightly pressing on his belly will elicit tons of giggles.

Izzy really is a great baby. I love him to pieces.

I LOVE THE PICS. Lets make a date soon so I can snuggle him and cuddle him. Oh I am so glad you are getting some sleep. Max did not so well while was eating soy. I wonder if you just ate unprocessed soy-like just the beans if that would be ok. Try in another few months after his body gets a rest. Your the best momma.

He is so cute.

And I agree not fat at all.

I was wondering what you people on the east coast took your kids out in the freezing cold. I have never seen one of those before he looks all nice and cozy in his carrier.

What a handsome little guy!

Your kids have the prettiest eyes.

It looks like Porgies are a bit lighter than Izzy's? But the shape of their eyes is gorgeous.

Greg said...

WOW what a cute kid you have!! E was also very ticklish when she was younger. She still is today. You cannot even rub her back without her laughing her face off!

First off I have to comment on the "trivial" comment... No it is not! It is amazing to see all the little changes & stuff.

I loved this post btw... Your son is adorable.

Thank you for your comments on my page btw... I don't know if you know, but I comment to them on there. You asked something the other day & it just hit me that you may not be getting my replies lol. I hope so!
