Baby Isaac loves his $1 bouncy seat! Here he is with his lion--made at a
Kenyan women's craft co-op. When Craig opened the lion at our shower, he
thanked the Ankroms for the stuffed bear. The lion has been officially
renamed "the bear with the wig."
Craig plays Shalom Aleichem on the guitar for Isaac's first shabbat. Isaac
had to enjoy the challah, meatballs and spinach salad second-hand. That

Grandma Ankrom calls it "Isaac at the beach."

that Aunt Kim was called into the dean of admissions office following her
interview to be told that she was immediately accepted.) Here is Isaac in
his first ever OSU sweatshirt and the Michigan hat Mommy knitted for him.
He has some growing to do. Maybe he can fit in them for next year's game.
He looks as enthusiastic about the game as Wendy...
Wendy after a late-night feeding. Notice Wendy's pregnancy freckles and
Isaac's yellow tinge. Both Mom and baby are recovering well from the birth
aside from a re-aggravation of Wendy's tail-bone injury. She has to sit on
an inflatable doughnut to nurse.
Isaac gets a sponge bath. Isaac hates to be
cold--can you tell? He doesn't mind sitting around in a wet and pooey
diaper, but woe to anyone who tries to change it unless the room is about
