Finally some good pictures

We haven't had much luck getting good pictures of Isaac. He has such a fun personality, but I just can't get it to show up on film. Today we really got some good photos. I always said I wouldn't put a load of pictures of my baby and would instead just pick a few of the best, but there were so many I liked. So, here they are:

In other news, not baby-related, we've had a wonderful time with Keith and AD. I don't have any pictures from our trip to Baytowne Wharf on Thursday night because I (gasp!) forgot my camera. But so did AD so it isn't just my fault.

Friday we hung out at Brandon and Brittney's. Brandon is a new intern on base and lives across the street from us. I had to show up late due to a migraine that ingrained itself on my brain! Later that evening, Keith and AD volunteered to watch Isaac and Scrubs so JB and I could go watch some fireworks on the bay! What a nice hour away from the "kiddos" we had.

Today JB and Keith went and saw a movie while AD, Isaac, and I had lunch and did some window shopping. We also stopped at the "lemon lot" on base to take a look at some of the vehicles. We've decided we'll probably end up with a mini-van, but we are going to try to find one we can afford without going into debt. We need a vehicle with three rows and good air conditioning. Those are our two biggest needs. Right now, JB is cooking dinner -- Mediterranean. I am hoping I can eat it.

It's been so great having Keith and AD here with us for the holiday. They are really cool people and a great Uncle and Aunt for Isaac and Scrubs! (Scrubs loves Keith and Isaac loves Auntie AD so it works out perfectly.)

I can't beileve JB is off tomorrow too -- three days in a row! I can't remember if that has ever happened before! It's awesome!

Super cute pictures! I can't believe how much he's changed since you were in MN.

A little tip on the queasy feeling you get when JB cooks - don't stay inside when he makes the food if you can help it. I couldn't stand the smell of meat cooking the entire 8 mo. but could eat it if I didn't smell it being made. I made ham one night and was ready to chuck it in the garbage until Pat came home and said it smelled good. I knew then that my sniffer wasn't working properly. Thank goodness that Boston Market was in Roch at the time. Most of my meals came from there (or anywhere else where I didn't have to smell it being made).

Glad you had a good weekend.

What adorable shots Wen! He really is a beautiful little boy.

I swear, if I didn't know he was adopted, I would never guess! I totally can see JB in Isaac's face. Do you suppose hanging out with someone enough makes you look like them? I know my friends who adopted have the same thing, the boys both look like their Dad, yet not biologically related!
So nice to see him smiling, sleeping or awake, SO CUTE!
Hope you are feeling better, I had a migraine this AM myself, so can sympathize.
Have a great one!
