A year and a half has gone since my sweet baby Isla was born. What she has blossomed into since she was born 18 months ago is the most amazing thing. Every update I say the same thing and comment on how this month has been “the funnest” but truly every month just gets better and better!
She is obsessed with brushing her teeth. Actually let me rephrase that. She loves the thought of brushing her teeth. She likes bringing her stool over to the stink, standing on it and running her toothbrush under the water and then sucking on it. She is not a fan of the bubble gum toothpaste or when I have to do the brushing for her. Any tips on tooth brushing your little one???!

Play Food – Isla could play with this stuff all day. She also has some plastic frying pans and she will toss around her eggs and chicken legs just like a pro.
Baby Stella – This doll always seems to be a favourite but each month the interactions change. Now, Isla cares for her very gently. She sits her in her chair, gives her a bottle, fixes her hat and gives her kisses. I hope this is a glimpse into the future about how she will be with a little sibling around.
Roar: A Big Mouthed Book of Sounds – You all know how much Isla loves books but she can’t get enough of this one. It’s always the first book she gives me at night. Whenever I point to the title she goes “Roar!” She also can point to some of the animals that I ask her to find and she can meow like the cat and bark like the dog.
Magnetic Letters – These have spent a few months on our fridge until Isla really noticed them. She loves playing with the letters and helping daddy spell her name. Currently the letters have made their way over to the outside of the dishwasher.
Bubble Guppies – I have a feeling that this may be the theme to a future birthday party. This is the only show she will remain still for and whenever I mention that it is on she freaks out and grabs her chair to sit down.
Crayola Washable Finger Paint – Isla for sure has a creative side like me and she loves to paint and colour. These paints are the perfect thing for her. They are non toxic, come off easy and are in a great squeezable bottle.
