Children's Festival

We went to the Children's Festival, and man did they have some cool stuff! Isaac has discovered his new love--gymnastics (better known as cool, brightly colored obstacle course). I think I'm going to have to sign him up for classes when he gets old enough. It was almost impossible to drag him away from it. Even with older kids practically running him over--one little boy pushed him down--he didn't want to quit. One little girl (she was about 2-3 years old) said about Isaac, "Will someone get this baby out of my way?!? He is annoying me!" Isaac didn't mind; he was perfectly happy going at his own pace through this cool course.
This was his favorite piece.

He enjoyed watching the other kids go through too (although they went way too fast for him).

Isaac's first somersault!
"Hey...what just happened?"

A bit dazed and confused.

Strange man on stilts with an air gun.

This was the bewildered face we got when he saw...

these guys! He was a bit too stunned to give Iron Man a high five. Daddy had to help.

They had a petting zoo.

This was what happened when the sheep "baa"ed him. In his defense, it was pretty loud.

His favorite were the lambs...nice and soft, but not so loud.

Lots of teeth

With our funny food pictures, we also got pictures of all the teeth. As you can see, he now has 14 teeth--8 on the bottom and 6 on the top! The next 2 are coming in on the top (you can see a little bit of white bump peaking through in the gap). I've heard that this is a lot for his age. He likes to use them too. When we give him bites of food, we have to pull our fingers back quickly so he doesn't bite them by accident. One of the women at the Y gave him a bite of something to eat. She didn't know to get her fingers out of the way, and man, did she yelp. I guess we need a sign, "Warning, DO NOT feed the child!"

New messy foods

Is there a rule that kids have to like the messiest foods? Almost all of Isaac's favorites are stains waiting to happen. Most of his favorite foods involve tomato sauce (so we have ruined quite a few outfits). Here are two of his new favorites...peanut butter and fruit smoothie. The smoothie would be okay if it weren't for the blueberries.
