Oh my Isla Grace, you have turned in to quite the wiggle worm as of late. You move all over the room. Of course, since you primarily only go backwards, you tend to get stuck under furniture a lot and that makes you mad. Whenever you make your way over to your brother's toys, he always moves them back out of your reach...sorry about that. He's not the best at sharing. 

You now lift your chubby little hands out to me when you want me to pick you up and will do that to others as well. You tend to not like being left in a room by yourself, but as long as someone is there, you are happy. Your brother especially makes you happy. You just love watching him go, go, go. You are starting to understand "jokes". If I put food up to your mouth, wait for you to open your mouth, then pull it away, you laugh. I even heard you laugh at peek-a-boo for the first time the other day. Hilarious, I know. You prefer eating books over having them read to you. And you will put just about anything in your mouth. 

You have lost weight over this past month. I am going to contribute that to you eating solids with gusto (and solids have less fat and calories that breast milk) and are moving all over the place. You are definitely a lover of food. Especially the solid stuff. You have eaten all sorts of non-ground up food already - bread, watermelon, yogurt chips (and not the baby freeze dried ones), avocado, tortilla, cheereos...and the list goes on and on. I told you she likes food! You still prefer veggies to fruit. Way to be healthy! 

You are now sleeping in your own bed at night and are only waking up about once a night to nurse. This whole saga deserves a post of its own, but I am OH SO HAPPY we have arrived to this point. And arrived to it without allowing you to cry it out (I don't have the heart or willpower for that). Its fun to see you all snug in your bed. And to see you twisting and turning all over that crib. You seem to prefer sleeping on your stomach...or at least that is how I find you when I go in there. When I lay you on your back, you instantly throw your hands above your head to sleep. You are a light sleeper though. So if your brother makes too much noise or anyone for that matter, you wake up.

    2) You're an amazing photographer! She's so lucky to have you as a mom for LOTS of reasons but that's really cool.
    3) I LOVE that she scooches herself backwards under furniture. So cute.
