Isla spotted a bird..."Birrr!"
Off to school we go!
Home from school now, and cutting loose before nap time. Isla was circling the kitchen island saying, "Choo-choo!"
20 months is SO much fun! Isla is all personality. She is sweet and gentle, thoughtful and always observing....taking everything in. She gets fussy when she is hungry and silly when she is tired. She gives us kisses all day long. Sometimes on the face, but often on the knee or hand, whatever is closest. Hugs are frequent as well.
Isla loves her little kitchen, mixing things and using all of the noise making toys. She is quick to serve not only Greg and I, but Ashby and her baby dolls too. Isla also loves puzzles right now. The more challenging the more interested she is. Observing her work on her puzzles is priceless. She will often hold the wrong piece over an opening and say, "nooooo", then slide it around the board repeating this until she lands on the correct spot.
Isla is talking and babbling more than ever. She will try to repeat anything we ask her to, sometimes her words are very clear other time she just gets the correct amount of syllables. Some of our favorite things that she says are, "Love you Momma" and "Love you Pappa". She says "Thank you", and "Please", she will tell Ashby to "Sit", she will tell her "No" and "Go" if she is getting in her way and then when she is happy with Ash she will say, "Good girl!" One word we hear often is "mess" it sounds like "mesh". Isla likes order and will point out crumbs on the table, dirt on the doormat, or just anything that looks a little messy!
