Isaiah and daddy have a new game of catch - yes, Isaiah has mastered the fine art of throwing toys and, to his delight, daddy picks them up so he can toss them again. And again. And again. It's sort of like when he learned that if he dropped something it was bound to be picked up for him, although this has an added bonus because he can sense it's a game. To be honest, I can't wait for him to learn how to play catch with a ball in the back yard.

I know, I don't want him to grow up too quickly, but we humans are funny creatures. It takes us a significant amount of time to learn how to do things. 10 months old and though stable on his feet, Isaiah rarely trusts himself to stand for lengthy periods without holding on to an object... unless he doesn't realize he's standing alone. He scoots along furniture and pulls up to stand on and against anything and everything. His most recent discovery has been the realization that cupboard doors actually open, and there are things inside to get into! That'll be a fun one; our house isn't truly baby-proofed in that sense. So development is happening, but compared to other animals we're relatively slow at the whole process.

I suppose it is so we sit and enjoy each moment, each milestone. We move so quickly through life, that perhaps this is just another reminder to slow the pace down and appreciate the little things!
