Isla is...7 Months Old?!

In the words of your older sister, "My goodness grace-bibs (a.k.a. "gracious")!! I am shaking my head at how fast days have turned into weeks little Tuppence. You are growing up ten times faster than I am prepared for and I just want you to always be this little! I missed posting your milestones at six months so I'll try to catch up here.

*You weigh roughly 17 pounds and are already wearing some of your big sister's clothing that she didn't fit into until she was 18 months old! *

*You wear a size 4 diaper. *

Now that we aren't traveling I am back to making your food which is easy, cheaper and makes me feel good. So far your favorites are pureed sweet potatoes, carrots, and avocado. But you still don't like rice cereal. No way. Or green beans.

Yesterday (11/15) was Grandpa Gerry's birthday and you celebrated from America by calling him in Co. Cork Ireland to giggle at him while Teagan gave him her best of the birthday song. And this day also marked your first taste of fruits. You loved apples and double bonus, Tea ate some of your grub as well!

You roll over now, sit up on your own and have shown the beginnings of an army crawl. Hmm. Except that last part is totally untrue. You want nothing, not even a milisecond of a thought, to do with being on your tummy. I hate it when you cry and always scoop you up. Sigh. We gotta get busy before next week's check up with your pediatrician or she might get Daddy involved!

Teagan has become an attentive big sister these days. And I mean that in a positive way. Generally. The look on your face here kinda says it all..."Uh, guys???"

And here.....

I love you little Isla! I always tell Teagan you two are my "angels-sent-from-heaven-above!!!" (ala Raising Arizona).

We are hours from my birthday and two memories I carry with me from today are that you played and splashed in the bath for the first time today andddd...your first tooth came in! I am so PROUD of you!! Bless your heart, the past week hasn't been easy. You've had high fevers, a virus in our house and little sleep. But through it all you've been stellar even when Daddy sneezed his old sneezy sneezes that positively broke your heart and reduced you to tears. So you got through it little Tup and I knew you could do it!! But that's it, ok? No more growing up. I love you today, tomorrow, forever.

And I kiss you, Mommy


  1. I love little Tup too. She and Tea are just so beautiful. First tooth!! YAY!! Maybe that is what that fever is all about.

  2. Hi there, I am stopping by from Couponing From Florida to Michigan. I am your newest GFC follower. I would love a follow back.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. She is so beautiful and I loved getting to give her a good squeeze on Saturday! Her hair is even prettier now! I love, love, love it!


We'd love to have your comments so post away!
