school is def in session. my lack of posting is evidence enough.
she was nineteen weeks old yesterday. where does the time go? she has started squealing like a crazy woman and it makes us laugh every time she does it. it's amazing how loud that little thing can be. when i am rocking her she is enjoying scratching at the fabric on the back of the glider. she seems to really like the noise it makes. if she is sleepy and trying to fall asleep for a nap on the couch she puts her hands over her eyes and moves them around. if she can get a hold of my hand she will pull my hand up over her eyes. it seems to soothe her to sleep.
a couple days ago she started grabbing my face while i was feeding her. sometimes it hurts, but most times she is gentle enough. i love that she is exploring with touch and learning what i feel like.
one day last week i picked isla up from the house down the street and there was another baby there as well. holding isla in my arms chatting with the woman that keeps her, isla would look at the baby, laugh like i have never heard her laugh before, and bury her head in my shoulder. and she did this three or four times. i had never seen her do that and i cracked up at her being so silly.
bobby's uncle and aunt visited isla and came to see our new house.
as always isla welcomed the extra attention.
we enjoyed a walk to the pond in our neighborhood
and introduced isla to the ducks. she liked them.
love that little aggie bum
i forever want to remember how adorable she was in this hooded towel.
facetiming while mama is at school
and while daddy is at work
the woman who cares for isla in the afternoons sent me this one day.
look how happy she is! baby smiles are the best.
i cherish the hours we spend together each day after school.
i miss her terribly when i am away.
our first date night out since isla was born.
the blurriness is right. on. point.
took a day trip down to college station to see my little brother dylan propose to his adorable girlfriend, rebecca.
i. can't. even.
this is one of my favorite pictures of her.
it is just so isla. those eyes. those perfect little lips.
i love her to pieces.
this onesie is now a bit tight. she wore it for all of three weeks.
