Update on Isla

Isla is now seven months old. Her eyes are gray with patches of brown. She has five teeth, three on the bottom and two on the top. She only uses her pacifier for naps and car rides. She can pull herself to a standing position and walk around holding onto things. She can crawl long distances, from one end of the house to the other, and can climb up onto the nursing stool.

She eats bananas, carrots, watermelon, cantaloupe and cheerios. The first two she eats in the baby food varieties, but the others are real adult food. She loves cheerios and drinks water from a cup with assistance. Her favorite objects are socks and a pink bear that has a blanket for a body that her cousin gave her. She takes the bear to bed with her and holds it in the car. She dislikes being strapped into her car seat, not being allowed to turn over on the changing table, and when mommy or gramma talk on the phone. When she is ready to fall asleep in the car, she turns her head to the side and closes her eyes.

She still likes smooth jazz and classical music. She prefers to be held by mommy, but daddy makes her really laugh. She is our joy, and we thank God for her.
