Tomorrow Isla will be 13 months old. She's changing so much! My parents were up this past weekend and noticed so many changes in her in the past few weeks. She is chatty chatty chatty...now saying ball, 'nana (banana), Bear Bear (her beloved teddy) and bye-bye to everyone! She's mastered going up and down the stairs, which means we never had to put up baby gates...allelujah! She just started doing the bear crawl a few days ago and is walking along all of the furniture. We think it will be another month or so before she is walking, though everything is a push toy right now. She is all about her books lately and has her favorites - The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Polar Bear Polar Bear and Miss Spider's Tea Party. We've smoothly transitioned her to one nap, and she's still a super sleeper with 12+ hours at night and 3+ during the afternoon. We've gone to the zoo twice in the last month and are loving our zoo passes. She's at such a fun stage now and is filling our lives with so much joy and laughter!
