When Izzak was 2

For some reason I can't find a picture of Izzaks 2nd birthday....thats really bad. Don't you love it when other family members buy your kids noisy toys? You can see the little piano thing at the bottom of the picture here but he got the whole band for Christmas before he turned two from my parents. Wastn't that nice of them? This was a typical picture of Izzak always on the move running through the house to his own music. If you look in the picture to the right Joshua is behind him trying to pull himself around to play with his big brother. Whom he adored at this age.....not so much anymore I wish they still adored each other.......

Our house looks terrible in this picture but we were in the middle of remodeling the kitchen so we didn't have any cabinet doors. Boy was that fun with a two year old!
Here is Izzak at church on Easter Sunday wasn't he cute?

One of Izzaks favorite things to do was riding bikes. He had his first tricycle when he was 2 and a bike soon after. Can you tell how happy he was to ride?
In Portland every year at the beginning of June we have the The Portland Rose Festival which consists of three different Parades The Junior Parade which is entirely for kids and all kids in the parade, Then the The Starlight Parade which is all at night after dark (this is the favorite of our family by the way the third parade is the big one The Grand Floral Parade. We also have The Waterfront Village which is the big carnival but it is very expensive to take the kids to. It is right on the river that cuts through the center of the city. Along with the carnival is another big event that people look forward to and that is what you see below....
Which is when Fleet Week started. We get US Navy ships and Canadian Navy ships that come into our Port Downtown and allow people to tour the ships. I remember in high school when the bad girls would get excited during this time...umm you can guess why. I was not involved in that. Izzaks Uncle Josh took him to a lot of the festivities this year. He was 16 and realized that with Izzak being cute and all and a huge flirt that he would be a great "chick magnet". He was a very dotting uncle back then though so I new Izzak would have a great time and he did.
Izzaks 3rd Christmas! This was the best one yet for him because he actually had some clue what was going on. Also he was finally starting to talk by now, we were so very happy about that!

Izzak funny at the end of this year? We managed to get down to Kelly's Grandparents house in California this year for Thanksgiving and had all of his family together including some who had not met my dear son yet. Izzak was fully potty trained by 2 and was in the potty with everyone in the family sitting in the living room just outside when Izzak yells out "Momma, Momma my butt don wok". Yeah he still hasn't lived that down. Everyone in the family remembers it.
Izzak had some gains this year in his speach and was finally getting to have some words. Of course most of the time it wasn't understandable, except to me, but it was so nice to finally find out what his sweet voice sounded like!

Alright I will try to not make these posts so long but I am enjoying remembering some of Izzaks younger years. Hope you all don't mind.

All those noisy toys! Now we have young neices and nephews I can return the favour. Mind you noisy toys are not as bad as dry clean only kids clothes!

Really wonderful photo's of Izzak - and your comments too - give an insight into Izzak at 2 years of age.

I luv the photo of Izzak on the ship - must have been a great day out for him to enjoy seeing the fleet.

Eagerly awaiting the next instalment of this wonderful posting.

I love going down memory lane as well. We've been doing that lately with videos. I forgot how darn cute they sounded!

I meant to say also that I look in the background when I take a picture, clear off a counter or something, but my husband doesn't! I look back at some photos and am so embarassed by the state of the house!

In your case, I didn't notice the background until you mentioned it. :)

Portraitopeter, we rarely pay to much attention to the weather. We have saying in Oregon. "If you don't like the weather? Wait 5 minutes it will change. That or count on rain". I am hoping for sun this weekend though.

i love hearing stories like this and even better with the pictures!
I just noticed that you've added me to your blog... thanks.... I just realized today...(duh) that if I add all the blogs that I read to mine that I don't have to keep going to 'favourites' to find these blogs...
I added a few at the very beginning then haven't added any since... so I'm just in the middle of doing that now.... have a great day!

Could not resist.

Blessings to you all from a howling windy Scottish Evening.
