Almost-Six-Weeks Stats; Neville


For Naomi, of course.  She’s now 9 lbs, 15 oz.  Wow!  That’s 12 oz. in just the past week.  Go girl!

In Isaac news, he’s created a brand-new imaginary friend, as of yesterday morning.  His name is Neville (Neville is also a Thomas & Friends character), and he’s “my black friend.” Note: Neville the train happens to be painted black, too. (As an aside, here’s a recent article about imaginary friends and child development.)

Strangely, I think, for an imaginary friend, Neville needs to “come over” from “his house” in order to play; we’re trying to convince Isaac that he can have Neville over whenever he wants, but that Mommy and Daddy can’t see him. This may take some time, but it’s pretty fascinating.



Too Scary to Eat


“His teeth are so scary I can’t eat those teeth.”

–Isaac, commenting on some Finding Nemo gummy fruit snacks, especially the one shaped like Bruce the Shark.
