That's my zay!!!



The house has been full...
overflowing with extra teenagers all of this past week... The big boys Arizona friends are in town as well as two of my nieces... and other friends... you know they all had to meet the Arizona friends!  
And tonight we traded one teenage niece for the tween niece:)

And all amidst the added noise and fun this little man is learning how to continue to navigate the terrible twos...

Although I have NEVER called it the terrible twos...I actually LOVE this age and stage...

He is curious, funny as all get out, so affectionate, full of the hootspa, quite the bull dozer, learning to talk so well, so kind to Levi,  full of the best deep belly laughs, and a real JOY giver!!! 

All of this while learning...
You can't just whine for Anna because she is your favorite...
You can't climb into the cabinets and sneak candy...
You can't cry on and on and on and on... (you get the picture)
You can't throw tantrums...
You can't eat ALL day long...
You can't throw toys EVERYWHERE...
You can't just eat the frosting off a dunkin donut...
You can't stall bedtime by getting out of bed, time and time again...

Being two is hard work for both this little guy and his parents...  But so worth it!  :)

Everyday as I put Isaiah down for bed or nap I pray over him from head to toe....
I consider it a total joy and priviledge to be his mom... 
What a precious gift his birth mama gave us in choosing us to raise, love and get to experience life every day with him... I am forever grateful!


This is what happens when you are a 7th kid and your girl cousins get a hold of you and a flat iron:):)  He didn't seem to mind one bit:)
