Pickin' at the guitar

She loves to strum the guitar. I recently showed her the picks to help
strum with and I'm still trying to decide if it was a good idea.

Life as I know it...right now

Other than pictures we have not updated the blog in awhile. I have noticed that I am not the only one though as a lot of our friends who now have a kid or now have more than one child have also slacked on updating their blogs. I believe kids are a good excuse now that I have one.

As my job has moved me to be more involved and IzzyB is way more active that I feel like I do not ever get to get on the computer at home. I constantly have to remind myself that when I get home I can't just sit on the couch and veg anymore.
But you know what makes it easier to be reminded of that? When I walk in the door after a day at work and I hear those little feet running and she turns the corner into the kitchen and yells "DADDY!" as she sees me.

I would always see those types of commercials or scenes in movies where this happened and it would warm my heart...but now as it happens to me it MELTS my heart. Just seeing her get so excited to see me and as she comes in running to give me a hug then asks mommy to join for a group hug...those are the best moments of my day.

One of her favorite things to do is to go check the mailbox with me. She always yells out "MAIL!" after I ask her if she wants to go check the mail with me. So we march outside and I give her a piece of junk mail to carry back to the house and she is always so proud to carry it in as she helps daddy.

All of this to say, as IzzyB is growing, learning, being adventurous, and seems to get into trouble more and more frequently, I have less time to sit down and update the blog. I will try to upload pictures as I remember to. Thanks for listening and I hope everyone is well!

Ice cream date

Amy and I swore we would hold off on sugars for IzzyB for a long time.
We have found that the expectations you had for your parenting styles
before you have children go out the window when the child arrives. We
don't give her sugary stuff everyday but we do give her treats
occasionally. But this day I took her to the golden arches and we
shared an ice cream cone. We both enjoyed it and had a great time
while mommy was away. The ride home with the windows down and IzzyB on
a sugar high rush was highly entertaining for me. I highly under
estimated the amounts of laughter this little girl would bring me.
