So Hot!

So today and yesterday i have not been feeling good at all. Its just been awful. I am pretty sure it is Heat Sickness. I have been trying to sleep as much as possible, and drink a lot of fluids. I haven't had much of an appetite though. We don't have air conditioning, so it has been a bit hard to cool off.
It has reminded me of how i felt when i had "evening sickness" during my pregnancy. I have been trying to imagine what it would be like to be pregnant and have a little baby/toddler.....(i am not quite ready to stop calling him a baby).
Not that we are trying to get pregnant, but i am curious as to how well i would do. I loved being pregnant, it was one of the best experiences of my life, but i do not handle being sick very well.
Anyways, i am beginning to feel a lot better tonight, but still very weak, hot and tired. Hopefully it passes quickly.
Isaiah has been so good today and has put up with my laziness very well. I love playing with him, but its also so adorable to just watch him entertain himself. He spent forever just tossing a ball around and chasing it, and giggling to himself. He has also been taking more and more independent steps, but then he realizes what he is doing and gets so excited that he collapses on the floor. He is going to be taking off pretty soon! I can't wait!
For the past 2 weeks he has been teething, and all that hard work is finally beginning to show! He has 2 more top teeth coming in. They are barely peeking through his gums, i just love it! At the same time it makes me feel like he is growing up so fast. I just can't handle that he is already 11 months!! I don't want to stop calling him my baby..... do i have to? I am going to be one of those moms that even when he is 40 years old he will still be my baby. :-)

Tomorrow afternoon i am heading out with my Mandy and her Madre to do more wedding dress shopping, i can't wait! This is such an important and unforgettable time in a women's life, and i am so happy to be able to share it with her!

Here are some pics from this past week when Mandy watched Isaiah for a couple hours. I ♥ them!

busy, busy, busy...

The summer busy-ness has been in full swing for our little family.
This past week was a little rough on Isaiah, he spent a little to much time in his car seat going from here to there, and there to here. It doesn't help that we live so far away from everything.

We spent a day at the beach which was so much fun. Last year this time myself, my sister Heather and friend Laura were all pregnant. Along with my mom and friend Jerika we all headed out to the beach to really experience what it felt like to be "beached whales". We had such a relaxing time.... Boy, was this year a bit different. All of us piled into our vans and headed out to enjoy the summer sun with 5 adults, 4 kids, and 3 infants. We brought everything possible to ensure a fun filled day.
It actually turned out great after we all got past the sand being everywhere and in every crack! I actually felt relaxed and Isaiah had a blast! He loved the sand, and of course he loved the water! I even thought it was cold but he was laughing like crazy every time i would dip him in. I love just playing and laughing with him, he is so much fun and i just adore his little personality. He has such a goofy side to him... he definitely takes after his mommy there! Have i mentioned he is quite the show off too....takes after his daddy ;-p 
He has such a cheesy smile, and if he is holding something in his hand while i take a picture he holds it up to show me. He has about a million little mannerisms, and i love every one of them!

We also spent a day in Rockford shopping and we found a few very cool items that we just couldn't pass up. There was one store that i absolutely fell in love with. It was called WAR (women at risk).
I will tell more about it later.... it really stirred up my heart and broke it in a way that hasn't happened for a while now.
It has been a week full of much needed girl time, and a lot of laughs. It feels so good when friends can appreciate our very silly sides, doesn't it?

Dan and i have been so busy with so many little activities, that we haven't had much time to spend together. I really miss him. I miss just spending the evening as a family. Last night felt like the first time in a couple weeks that we could just be us. We ate dinner, played with Isaiah, went for a walk, and attempted to play a new game that Dan just purchased recently. It was nice, but we were both a bit tired. Hopefully a date night is coming up soon.... hint hint, wink wink to that lovely husband of mine.

Enjoy the pics!
