Isla in June

Isla at 20 months does not stop talking.  Ever.  As we’ve all been sharing one room for the past three-ish weeks, we’ve discovered that Isla also talks in her sleep!  It’s really fun to hear her try out her language – building sentences and testing out new words.  She’s using two, three and a few … Continue reading

Isla in April, part 2

Can’t miss my once a month opportunity to unabashedly brag on my ball, baby, animal, book, Elmo, Barney, car, outside-loving 18 month old! Isla is quite smart, if you ask me :)  She’s learned to recognize a few letters, and in the bath last night she was playing with her foam letters and numbers.  She … Continue reading

Can’t believe our girl is 18 months old!  Happy half birthday to our sweet Isla Marie! Isla a year ago: And now:

Isla in December

bites, Bites, BITES!  This is Isla’s favorite and by far her most used word.  She hasn’t added any other new words this month, but is chattering in “Isla language” a lot more. She loves singing songs that have motions…  “10 little Islas jumping on the bed”… “If you’re happy and you know it”…  but her … Continue reading

Isla in November

For Isla’s first year, I’ve kept a running list of all her big milestones.  Rolling over, first tooth, first steps, first word, and so on.  She’s hit all those big firsts, but she’s still learning so many new things, it seems like every day she’s doing something.  I thought it would be fun to record … Continue reading
