I figured that after typing these up every month, they would get easier and less emotional but here we are at another month and I am still a sobbing mess as I write this. The days, weeks and months just go by way to quickly and instead of having a tiny baby I can hold in my arms all day, I have a crawling, walking, talking and singing all day long little human. As much as I find myself thinking back to those early days, the new things Isla experiences everyday and what we get to experience together definitely makes the fact that she isn’t a wee baby anymore much more fun! So is doing SO much and watching her grow is the best thing ever.
Clockwise from top left:
Tea Set – Isla and I have tea parties all the time. Her Granan bought this for her in hopes and getting her ready for real tea parties some day like my Nana and I use to have. Isla pours the tea, dumps in the creamer and then stirs everything in. Then we cheers!
Egg Set – Isla can’t put this little set down. She carries it with her everywhere she goes. Inside are 6 eggs each with a different shape on the bottom and colour. You have to match the shapes and put the eggs back together. She can’t get enough of it.
Baby Stella – This little gal may have been mentioned before but Isla has found her again and they are best friends. She holds her, feeds her a bottle and gives her hug. So nice seeing her lovable side.
Land of Nod Chair – Isla will sit in this and read a book, no joke. She loves and feels like a big girl when she is sitting in it. We have to watch her pretty carefully around it because she uses it as her own little jungle gym. She climbs on it and rolls all over it. It has a little handle on the back so she carries it around and there is even a little pocket in the back to put her books.
Crayons – We are on a real colouring kick lately. We were out with my dad for dinner a couple of weeks ago and they were colouring together and she hasn’t stopped since. We now have lots of beautiful artwork to add to our fridge!
