And Isaac haning in his awesome stripped cotton pants and jacket, getting ready to do some christmas shopping. Well, he sleeps, I shop

Here is yet another little video of Isaac "talkin." He cracks me up daily now with his little chatter and his learning to use inflection in his voice.
As a new mom, I hear cliches ALL the time from everyone i see, be it at work, the grocery store, or the Dr's office...ones like "time flies, enjoy it because before you know it they'll be going off to college" and also that it just gets better and better each day. So we've hit the 3.5 month mark and this is by far the best. I cant imagine it getting any better --love the smiles in the mornings when he recognizes us, the belly laughs at his goofy daddy, and how he's finding his voice. I laugh at myself because i don't think i can even count the number of times in a day that I say i love you to Isaac; many times it just comes out and i don't even know I'm saying it. i hope he doesn't get sick of hearing it ;)
Not much is going on here, we're excited for the holidays--sad to say i've got to work both black friday and christmas, so both holidays are pretty tied up. Considering i don't work thanksgiving day, I've decided we're going to head up north for 3 days to Minnesota to see my Grandpa Tom and let him meet his first great grandson. Mom and Dad will be there so of course that will be enjoyable as well. Can't wait to see the other family in the area either though, Carolyn, Barb and Barb's family.
Can't wait for thanksgiving to pass so we can get on with the christmas festivities...This sunday Brian and I are going to see the Rockettes Christmas Spectacular (it was here for about a month last year at our Broadway theater called Playhouse Square--i wanted to go SOOOO bad but never made it) so I am super pumped about that!! (that was one really lllooonnnggg run on sentence :) Brian just told me yesterday that we have free tickets through the Coast Guard if we want them! How awesome is that? Then it will be time to put up the Christmas tree and i think the little guy will love it. I can't wait till the day that he can make ornaments- i still love looking at ornaments i made as a kid and i still take pride in putting them on the tree :)
We hope all are well and we love you guys! We miss having family around, i know it will really hit us (and you) during the holiday season, but we've all just got to remember and hold onto the fact that its just for a season, meaning in life. 5, 10, 15 years down the road we'll be closer to home and spending holidays together. Luckly we do have great friends around us that are opening their doors to us at thanksgiving (for Brian, since he cannot come to Minnesota with Isaac and I) and again at Christmas.
LOVE Carlie, Brian, and Isaac
