Isaac and the Ducks

Wow...been so crazy busy, I have had zero time to blog. So much to say, so little time... :) Plus I wanted to leave my Maddie post prominant for a while. (Note: Have done several orders already and have some parties booked! Keep spreading the Maddie love!)

We had a great first Father's Day. Mostly because my work-a-holic husband decided to take the day off so we could be together as a family. Have I ever told you how much Isaac LOVES his Daddy? Cause he does...it's almost sickening, really. :) He is becoming quite the mini version of his father...looking more and more like him every day. Sigh. I was just an incubator, I guess. :)

Anyhoo, we had a lazy morning of baby snuggles and cuddles and a wonderful lunch of Daddy's favorite burritos. Isaac gave Daddy his presents (an Ohio Sta.te commuter bag fulled with little goodies, including a Tshirt that reads "Daddy needs a beer"...very white trash, I know. ;) ). Then we took Isaac for a walk around the nearby Spr.ing Lak.e. where he made some new friends

Isaac LOVED the ducks. He loved Daddy's duck noises even more, and tried to make them himself. My little genius baby. He watched them for so long and smiled and squealed as Daddy held his hand out to them. The ducks were very friendly...a little too friendly in my opinion, as I watched several of them nip at my husband's fingers thinking they were food and envisioning my baby's foot in their mouths. I swear, I am not paranoid. Once the geese rolled in and actually started to climb up on the banks and bee-line towards the stroller, we decided it was time to move on.

When we got home, we were all still making duck noises just to see the smile on his face. His love of ducks is apparently not limited to real live ducks and the quacks made by Uncle C's duck toy for Dozer brought a similiar reaction. Loves him some waterfowl, my boy.

It was a wonderful day for us, and made us realize just how very important is to spend time together as a family without phones and TV and other distractions. We have commited to one Sunday like this a month. It doesn't seem like alot but it really is to us. I sure do love my boys. :)

Aww, that sounds like the perfect Father's Day! That's adorable that Isaac loved the ducks so much. Isn't it amazing when your baby tries to mimic sounds they hear?!
