Isla {9 Months}

Weight:  lbs
Length: 28 inches

Crawling everywhere
4 teeth (2 on top and bottom)

This past month I have definitely seen the most change in Isla. She seems to have gone from a baby to a toddler overnight. I really think it is the moving around. Once they are fully mobile, life changes. Isla can entertain herself for long periods of time now because she will crawl and grab new toys once she gets bored. And it is oh-so-cute when she crawls from one room to another after me. Given that it is summertime, those little knees aren't covered and are getting quite the workout. They get dirty rather quickly. 

Isla loves to eat and loves putting those teeth she has to use chomping down on food. She loves her some bread, pretty much any fruit (cantaloupe, watermelon, strawberries, banana, apple, mango, peach), veggies (celery, red pepper) and cheerios. Now that I think about it, she really hasn't found a food she doesn't like. Connor was the same way. It sure makes my life easy! Isla is pretty much eating three meals a day with numerous nursing sessions thrown in there. And she is still waking about every three hours at night to feed. What?! She is a growing girl! And I am a sucker. I can't help it. 

Isla is becoming more and more a mommy's girl. She usually would prefer being with me than with someone else. If I am not in the room, she is fine. But if she can see me, she wants to be with me. And, she is making people work harder and harder at getting her to smile. Basically this means she has stopped smiling for any random person who decides to stop and talk to her in a high-pitched voice. My kid is mean. I can't help it. 

Isla is getting to the point that she has a pretty full head of hair. Its to the point that random people compliment her mane. People especially make comments about her having brown hair and blue eyes. And they make comments about her adorable chubby little legs...its the only time in her life she will appreciate those comments, so we will enjoy them while we can! 

When sitting in chairs, Isla loves to throw herself back as hard as possible. She can even make her highchair move while doing this. Ian is always afraid she is going to hurt her head. I think it is kind of funny. She also has taken to stealing her brother's toys. It causes friction between them, but it is a good lesson in sharing! 

My sweet mama's girl, we are enjoying having you light up our lives. You are so easy going and love your brother so much. And its fun having a little shadow crawl after me!
