19....20....21 months

Dear Isaac
Well forgive me for being so slack with your monthly letters, but just as you turned 19 months Mummy and Daddy got a huge suprise when we found out you were going to become a big brother. Mummy has been grappling with bouts of morning sickness (more like all day sickness) and feeling guilty about how much quality time Im not spending with you. It seems like Ive spent the last few months laying on the lounge, grumpy and feeling sick. It should get better soon little man!!!

We spent a week at the beach during the school holidays, it was lovely to get away as a family. Lots of walks on the beach, a trip to greenhills adventure park...you loved it all. You even slept in a big bed (with a saftey rail). The last few months have seen you develop quite a personality. You are extremely stubborn and like everything your own way. Unfortunately this is causing quite a bit of grief!!!! Your spoken language is still very limited, and so you have taken to squealing....loudly!!!!! Its driving us all crazy. You also have started grabbing a toy and bashing it on the coffee table when you get angry. I know a lot of it is frustration at not being able to talk much, but hat doesnt make it any easier to deal with , especially while mummy is feeling so ordinary.

On the flip side you can be the most loving little thing. You give us lots of cuddles and cute little kisses. You love to be right in the middle of what ever is going on. When daddy is around you are a real daddys boy....a good thing considering you wont be the absolute centre of attention for that much longer. You laugh uncontrolably, your are really ticklish and you frown at us all the time..its so cute!!!!!!
You arnt the most sociable little boy. you love being around older children, but around kids your own age you tend to pull hair and grab faces - not a good way to make friends!!!!! The only one you havnt tried this on is Jamie - lucky Jamie!!!! I know we should get out more to playgroup or visiting other little kids your age, but playgroups are always at your sleep times, which doesnt make for a fun outing, and I just dont seem to have the energy to get out and about at the moment.

The other day you managed the words "mumma baby" while we were looking at the ultrasound pictures of our new little one. It melted Mummys heart.

I love you my little man....to the moon and back!!!!
