My mom came down to help us for the first week and a half after Adam was born. She got in the Sunday night before I went in the hospital and stayed through the next Wednesday. She brought down a jogging stroller she had bought so that she could take Isaac running with her every morning. He was in LOVE! They went on lots and lots of walks and runs during my mom's time here. Isaac loved the chance to get out of the house and just spend time outdoors since it had finally cooled down.
I loved having my mom here to help Isaac feel special and to help me adjust to dividing my time between two cute boys!

|One day after a ton of rain my mom took Isaac out to play in the puddles. She scored major points in his book for letting him do that!|
|Bear-bear got a little bath (and then a major bath in the washer).|

After my mom left, Andy started his two weeks of paternity leave. We loved having him home so much!
|Andy always wraps himself up in a blanket in the morning so Isaac wanted to be just like dad! It brought back lots of memories from when my sister Stephanie and I dressed my brother up.|

On one of Andy's last days of leave we finally made it up to a little pumpkin farm in Richardson. We had a lot of fun until we went on the hay ride. I thought Isaac would love it, but it traumatized him a little.
We had planned to wait until we were in a house to get a double stroller, but it quickly became apparent that if I was going to be able to go on walks we needed one ASAP. We had it up in the apartment after setting it up, and Isaac had lots of fun playing with it.
Andy's first day back at work was Halloween. Luckily it was a short day since he came home early to take Isaac trick or treating.
