Growing Family

On Thursday, August 13, 2009 at 10:41 a.m., the Imig/Zomermmand family welcomed their newest addition, Isaiah Luca Imig. He is healthy, his parents are proud, and we are all blessed! I look forward to seeing this little bundle of joy become a little man. Being in the hospital, holding this new precious life in my arms, I could hardly believe that nearly 5 months ago it was me in the hospital bed beaming with pride as my baby girl was passed around the room.

Nearly 5 months ago I couldn't get sweet Baylie to eat the way I had always imagined she would eat. But countless pumping sessions later, and many more to come, she is a healthy 15 lbs. and 6 oz. Time consuming? Yes. Worth every second? Of course! I cannot believe the time has come for us to purchase a highchair. Baylie has taken a fast liking to rice cereal and will be trying new fruits and vegetables in the weeks and months to come. Do I need to make the airplane noise in order for her to take a bite? No. Do I do it anyway because I think it's fun? Yes!Mmmm!

Nearly 5 months ago Baylie would cry. Yes, she still cries. But more often she "talks." Sometimes I listen intently. But most times Derek and I are laughing so hard she then becomes intent on us. We enjoy listening to her stories that will someday turn to words, which will turn to sentences, which will turn to countless questions, which will eventually turn into back talk . . . maybe I don't like where this is headed . . . I will be content with the babbling for now!

Nearly 5 months ago you could lay Baylie anywhere and she would stay put. Now she rolls. For now she just rolls from back to tummy but it's only a matter of time before she figures out how to roll across the room. And then it will be time to baby proof everything. I can already see the frustration on Derek's face when he can't open doors or cabinets with ease anymore!

Soon Isaiah will catch up to Baylie and the 4 1/2 month age difference will go unnoticed! I am sure Baylie will convince him to play house, just as I did with my cousin Jeffrey! And I am sure Isaiah will have Baylie playing cops and robbers in no time! What an exciting time in our lives!
