I absolutely love watching my children grow and develop in so many areas of life, from the physical to the verbal to the cognitive, and so much more! Back in January, in an effort to capture some of the hilarious and insightful things Isaac would say, I started trying to write them down in a special journal. I knew I wanted to remember these adorable quotes for years to come as well as make him feel important; that what he had to say mattered to me. I've been planning to share these little "quotables" on the blog for some time, but am only now getting around to it. Maybe these glimpses into my son's mind and the things that make me laugh will only be meaningful to me, but just in case they bring a smile to your face too, here are some Isaac Quotables. :)

"I'm just warming up for da team to pway basketball!"

"No, my tummy is full now. All my udder (other) food is down in my footsies.
- That's good. That will help them grow big and strong.
"Then I will dump my socks out of my sock basket and share dem wiff JoJo. And when I get bigger, I will wear Daddy's. And den, I'll get bigger and touch da ceiling."
"I'm waffing (laughing) to see what sport it is!"
"I want to build a bridge outside and a tree house. And I'll live in da tree house so it won't rain on me. And I'll share my tree house with JoJo and Adoniah."
"I'm going to bang da house down!
- If you do that, then where will we live?

- Isaac, if you could be any animal, what would you be?
- Oh, that's a good one! Why would you be a dolphin?
"Cuz dat's what people turn into."
- Well, people don't really turn into dolphins, but we can use our imaginations and pretend. What would you do as a dolphin?
- Oh, is that why you want to be a dolphin? Because you like to swim?
(nods his head 'yes')
- What else would you do?
"Eat fish. And drink milk."
(Can you tell we've been reading about animals, and he remember that dolphin babies drink milk from their mother?) :)
