It's still all so new, but it seems like our change in routine is showing me new sides of Isaac. Andrew is in school a lot longer and Isaac and I have time together when Isaac is awake (Andrew's school hours used to overlap with Isaac's nap time). And I can feel some shifting because of that.
Isaac has not had a lot of time to play when Andrew was not around. So seeing him play by himself has been fascinating. It turns out, that Isaac too, enjoys building and playing with blocks. Today he took out the jumbo legos, built a tower, and then when he was done, he put the legos back in the box and put the lid on. I wish he had thought to clean up the magnetic letters he scattered all over the dining room.
It seems like he is trying out his sea legs. Filling the void that Andrew's schooling created by becoming the New Builder. Because, honestly, someone has got to do it.
I made 2 dozen bagels this morning. These babies go fast, so I doubled the recipe and plan on hiding half of them in the freezer behind the ice cream. We'll see if they figure it out.
