Although March has just begun, it has already
generated lots of photos, so we thought we'd give a preview to our
newsletter. The second weekend in March, Isaac's Bubbe and Zayde
(grandparents Comisar) came to visit. Isaac was quite enamored with
Craig's mother, giving her more laughs than we've yet heard.
Thursday, March 9, Isaac had his first (and
hopefully last) visit to the ER. One of Wendy's hairs had gotten
wrapped tightly around his toe and formed a tourniquet. We suspect
that the hair had been there for over a month (Wendy recalls finding
hair on that toe awhile ago and thinking she'd removed all of it).
As he grew, the hair began to cut off circulation and to cut through
the skin. For details and pictures,
March 10 marked the one year anniversary of our
positive home pregnancy test. We were so excited and nervous. We
never could have imagined a son as wonderful as the one God blessed
The weekend of March 10 also happened to be
graduate recruitment weekend. This is when our department flies in
all the students they've admitted for the following year to wine
them and dine them. Well, it is supposed to go that way but somehow
we can't ever quite get things to run as smoothly as other schools
do. We tend to be plagued by a lack of interest from current members
of the department. This year, however, our fellow graduate students
turned out en masse to recruit the new students. To showcase how
family-friendly our department is, Isaac was required to be on the
scene. Considering he'd just had toe surgery, he was quite a trooper
over the two days of recruitment!
Craig and Isaac catch a nap at the poster
session on Friday night. Craig had been out quite late welcoming the
recruits to the hotel the night before--the reason he missed the
entire toe episode.
