Isla is 11 Months Old.

What Isla Loves:

Music - anywhere and any kind

Dancing and moving to the music... and watching others dance. (Itsy Bitsy Spider, Wheels on the Bus, Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes, the radio, the TV....)

Little Gym

Baby Einstein...the songs and puppets specifically

Playing with her toys, pulling them all out of the box

Being read to... she definitely has favorite books and she loves turning the pages



Her momma's jewelry, cell phone, wallet, purse and everything in them

The suspended bronze geese at the mall

She still adores Ashby!

What she is saying:

"HEH" for head

"Ha-br" for Harper

"Ba" for ball and balloon

"Buh" for book

"AaaAH" for Ashby

"Muh" for more

"Uh-oh" when things fall on the floor

What she is doing:

Moves her hands to any song you sing, but especially nursery rhymes that we move our hands to

She has a kind of crab-like crawl, scooting but putting limited weight on her upper body

She can stand all day

Loves to walk if we help her

She has mastered the sippy cup

Frustrates us when she throws food from the table

She will identify her nose and our noses

She gives a mean high five

She has blown a few kisses

She loves flipping light switches

Every night she turns the water on and off in the bathroom

She blows on most of her food and will point to her bird mobile and blow in its direction

Other stuff:

She got her first haircut!

She moved up at Little Gym from the "Bugs" class to the "Birds" (she seems really interested in the bigger kids that are moving around)

She has great fine motor skills. She can carelessly pick up the smallest crumb, moves her first and second finger back and forth when we sing Itsy Bitsy Spider, and can easily push the smallest buttons on electronics

She is taking less and less formula and eating more and more food

She has had cow's milk

Those Long Legs.

I need to post an 11 month update very, but I wanted to share...
Today Isla stood on her own for about 30 seconds. She was standing in front of a full length mirrow just grinning from ear to ear and she swayed around. I could just see the wheels turning, she was so proud, it was the cutest thing.

Summer Is Coming!!

Thanks Aunt Sally for the adorable romper!! We LOVE is so very "IPO"!! The blue in the flowers is beautiful with her eyes, and the pale pink makes her cheers look super rosy. XOXO

Hanging out with our Wash Park friends. It is so nice that Spring is here now!


I had a window open the other day and Isla was enjoying the breeze while sitting at her walker, having fun lining up her toys. She does this with her food sometimes too.

Little Feet, A Little Sassy, A Little Stylish!
