Snapshots: Isaac at 2.25 years old

Me:  Isaac, can you look at the camera please?
Isaac: Just a minute, I'm looking at the flowers.

Any time we ask a yes or no question he prefaces his answer with "probably."

For example,
Me:  Would you like a banana?  
Isaac:  Probly, yah.

Jacob:  Isaac, is Sophie buckled?
Isaac:  Probly, yah.

He's started playing pretend.  Some of my favorites:  Using the vacuum hose attachments as fire hoses to put out fires all over the house.  Using the balloon pump to "fix" his car.    His sisters have also taught him various Harry Potter spells.  It's pretty adorable to see him pick up a pencil and yell "DUPIFY!" (stupify)

He loves to play in the water.  Especially drinking fountains and sinks.  He offers to wash the dishes anytime he hears me remind someone to put their dishes in the sink.  He'll come running in from the other room, "I wash the dishes mom!  Where's my chair?"

His love of water is rivaled only by his love of sand/dirt.  This is his current favorite spot to play.

He asks questions all day long.  "Where are we going?"  "Mom, what are you doing?"  "What are you making?"  When I answer him he usually responds with a quick "hmm" as if he's thoughtfully considering the answer.

At any given time he has in his bed roughly 3 stuffed animals, 2 blankets, 4 pacifiers, 6 cars, 8 books and as many misc toys as he can get away with.  Every day at bed/nap time he collects a few more things to take to bed with him.  Periodically, I have to ignore his protests and empty out his crib so that there is room for him.

When he first started talking he came up with his own words for certain things that he couldn't say correctly.   Deedoe (Sophie), Addie (Blanket), Duba (pacifier), Muck (pants).  He's used these words consistently for over a year.  This past month he started calling some of them by the correct names.  I'm going to miss his made up words.  Especially hearing him say "deedoo deedoe" (thank you, Sophie)
