Welcome to another fun Saturday Playdate! Today we're playing with Gina from The Ish Blog. "Ish" is the nickname of Gina's adorable little boy, who is the subject of her blog. She writes about all of their fun family adventures, and I always look forward to seeing a cute picture or two on Wordless Wednesday. I just recently found out that Ish will soon have a baby brother, so a huge Congratulations goes out to Gina and her family! Now she will get to have double the fun, like I do! :-)
When you're done here, stop by Gina's blog and check it out. Leave a comment and let her know you stopped by from the Playdate.
Hi everyone! I'd like to thank LeeAnn for inviting me over for a Saturday Play Date!
My name is Gina. I write a blog called The Ish Blog - all about life with my toddler son Matthew, who we call Ish. My husband came up with the nickname when we found out I was pregnant - not knowing if we were having a he or a she we wanted to give the little bean a gender neutral nickname that we could call him/her. My husband suggested "Ish" - and it stuck! Even after we found out he was a he, we still continued on with the nickname - and we still use it today!
Ish turned 2 this past September and we are entering a whole new toddlerhood phase - his vocabulary is off the charts (which is a good and bad thing!) and we are starting the daunting process of potty training. We are also planning to convert his nursery into a big boy room soon - as we will need his nursery furniture for his little brother Noah - due to join us in late April.
Life with Ish is crazy fun. He has such a great little personality and is truly a joy to be around. He loves to laugh and play and hug and kiss - and he always says "sweet dreams" to us as we tuck him into bed at night. We love taking him on little adventures through our sleepy little suburb in NY - from farmer's markets to local town fairs. This is a rare shot of me and Ish together (I'm always the photographer!) and it's one of my favorites:
Have a great Saturday!
