5 year old Izzak


Okay it is getting late I need to do todays post....

Here is Izzaks fifth birthday party. We thought it would be fun to do it at Chuck E Cheese. Yeah it was kinda. Izzak was deathly afraid of Chucky. I shouldn't have been surprised, he creeps me out to....

He is the little guy standing next to the girl in the jumper near Chucky with the hat on everyone was singing the birthday song and Izzak would not take his eyes off of him for fear he might get him.



Opening his presents with icing on his face, so cute. The little girl in overalls standing next to him is my friend Kara's little girl they are only 4 months apart.


The party is also where we decided to announce that Madison was on her way. We knew it was a good idea to be in a crowd since we knew some people would have negative feelings about it. My parents were happy, Kelly's not so much they thought it was terrible and why would we want another baby. They were very vocal about it which is strange since they have 4 kids also.


This was the kids spring picture taken actually about a week before his 5th bday but I think it counts as a five year old picture (after all he was 2 weeks late). Aren't they adorable though.....

Not sure exactly about Izzaks crossed arms and Joshua playing with his shoes though. This was also at the Picture People which I love!


I am a good mom this time and remembered to tell people that Izzak became a big brother for the 3rd time this year to His baby Madison.

Okay I thought he was protective and adored Kenzie when she was born. It paled in comparison to his devotion to Madison! Can you tell a bit by the way he is looking at her for the first time?


He is holding both of her hands in the picture. Since he was 5 this time he knew what was going on while I was pregnant and even had imput in her name. When she was born he was so excited and loving. He insisted on helping to change diapers and holding her all the time. I had a hard time tearing her away from him sometimes and I would find him sleeping near her crib sometimes at night. By the time she was 6 months he could get her out of her crib before she cried and sometimes even changed her diaper! He was actually really good. No poopy diapers though...I wouldn't let him do that. I really found the caring side of this boy with Madison and everyone else saw it as well. God forbid she cry! She never had much of a chance since if she started crying in bed he got him out if she wanted to eat and I didn't pick her up right away he brought her to me. Look at that proud look on his face....
She wasn't actually crying in this picture she just looks like it.
This year he became very helpful around the house not just with helping with Madison but he wanted to do things like help vacuum. Notice Madison in her car seat close by?
Also a big event for Izzak this year. He started Kindergarten....
He had been doing well enough with his speech and the school convinced me he didn't need anymore extra services and they would just keep an eye on him. Unfortunatly I listened to their advice (I will get into that in later posts) and am still paying for it now. He loved Kindergarten though and his teacher loved him also. He did struggle but they told me it was normal for him to have some struggles because his Preschool was more focused on his therapies then the normal preschool would be.

He continued to be a very sweet boy and he was known as the neighborhood greeting committee all on his own. He was very friendly and not afraid to speak to people even with his speech being a little behind people loved him and everyone on the block knew who he was. It was hard not to especially since he was so polite.

what a beautiful post and pictures. izaak is a wonderful young man, and a great big brother. i love that he watches over his sisters. i like going to chuck e cheese because i get to eat that yummy chicken sub sandwich. my friend usually calls me when she takes her grandchildren there, and we sit and talk and eat while they play. i imagine a big 'ol rodent would be sort of frightening to a small child. i never thought about it before.

it's good to be back blogging. had some family issues going on, but there's nothing like peace of mind to help deal with things. have a great weekend!

Izzak shows his sensitivity so beautifully in the photo with baby Madison - a tender moment to be treasured.

This walk down memory lane has been so wonderful and appreciate your allowing us all to share such tender moments with you.

Hope you are all enjoying the weekend.
