The differences...

Love watching these girls and seeing the differences and growth, development and especially personality. They are both so uniquely special! I love how God crafts each one of to be special in our own way.

7 months of sweetness...

Our lil peanut is officially 7 months old. She is full of happiness. I am sometimes amazed at how happy and breathtakingly sweet this little girl is. Oh, and she is incredibly loving.

  • She smiles and giggles a lot
  • Lights up when she sees Isla
  • Is rolling over
  • Loves to listen to my voice
  • Is sitting up
  • "Talking" and cooing a lot! - its as if she is humming sometimes
  • She's very ticklish, easy-going and content

We feel incredibly blessed to spend every day with the cute little miracle of Laylin Jane!

Happy birthday... in advance!

Isla has been to several of her friends birthday parties recently. This has led to her asking me if it is her birthday, every single day! Sometimes she asks multiple times. Its almost as if she is dreaming about her very own birthday party because she usually asks me as soon as she wakes up in the morning and after nap time.

Some days she doesn't even ask. She just wakes up and proclaims, "I'm ready to go to my birthday party now, mama."

I've been trying to explain to her how long she has to wait, and what month her birthday is in. It's so hard to explain time frames at this age though. If I have something exciting planned, I usually wait until day of to tell her because she will get so upset if she finds out its not happening on that very day.

Our every day birthday conversation has been going something like this...

Isla: Is it my birthday today mama?
Me: No, not yet.
Isla: Ok, my birthday is on Saturday.
Me: Your birthday is still 3 months away. It's in June.
Isla: Ok, when it's my birthday, I'm going to have an Elsa party!

Some days she says Ana party, but most days she tells me she wants an Elsa party. I've been contemplating having a (family) Elsa party for her, just because. It's hard for me to wait too! She is really into birthdays this year and parties all together.

I can't believe my little firecracker will be turning 3! The days are long, but the years are short -- so true!
