Imagination, Imagination

Isaac has an incredible imagination now; I've only recently begun to realize this. Every once in a while when I can't really play with him, I'll have him "get in the car"-- he buckles up from his booster (the bed) and I drive, while very illegally holding a baby, and he tells me where we're going. It's fun. He loves it when I do the sound effects...I must say I am a little rusty, but I'm getting better. We go to school, have animal parades, but the most beloved is the bus.
He knows the ASL sign ("ding for the next stop!") and the sound of any bus passing our house. But lately he likes to get on his own bus. My last morning at the hospital he kept climbing in the shower. We were like, "where's Isaac? Is he in the shower??" and he corrected us from behind the door: "No, it's a bus." Oh, okay..... My favorite sound, which is terrible of me as a mom, is still resonating in my head: Isaac was fooling around in the "bus" and got caught in an unexplained spray of cold water-- the helpless "aaaaaaaaah!!!!" still echoes in those halls. heheheh, good times! At home the preferred bus is our closet with the sliding doors.
His new game is playing firefighter. He makes his Dad have a broken leg or something and call 911, specifically asking for Firefighter Isaac. Over and over! But Jared loves it.
I don't know if I mentioned this in the blog yet, but Isaac is amazing with Noah (so far)! The most aggression he's shown was when I was typing at the computer with Noah in my lap, and Isaac came up and put his mouth near Noah's head. A couple of minutes later, Isaac was gone and Noah's hair was wet and sticking up in the middle of his head. There was no crying, so it couldn't have been that bad. But it has been surprising to us how much Isaac loves "Little Brudder." We have decided to keep Isaac the Little Dude, by the way, so Noah is Little Brudder... "I can make it on my own!"

How fun that Isaac has such a great imagination-you could tap into it and write great children's books and make millions! (that last part was definitely influenced from my husband who is always thinking of the next way we or anyone could make millions)
