This lady is 11 months old today! We only have one more of these little photo shoots left and that breaks my heart a little bit. But I don’t need to talk about this yet so let’s move on! Last month Isla ate her first Thanksgiving turkey (and mashed potatoes and stuffing and leftovers, too), says “Hey Tootse!” to every dog she sees, fell in love with a staircase and now wants to climb it every single moment of every day and still has zero interest in walking (and this is a-ok with us). She talks nonstop (but still will not say mama), loves to give kisses, is the mayor of everywhere (“hi! Hi! HI!!”), eats E V E R Y T H I N G (unless it’s green and a vegetable) and likes to point (ahem, she’s bossy). OH, and this morning we said, “ONE, TWO …” and before we could finish Isla said, ” TEEEEE.” I’m not kidding. What is happening? This month we’re going to work on our first steps, host our first Christmas with family, meet that scary Santa and enjoy every single second of these last days of our first year with our amazing girl.
We love you, sweet Isla Bee. Please cut mama some slack this month because I’m going to be kind of a mess as we approach your first birthday.
