I'm a big, big girl in a big, big world...

Lunchtime has to be outside cos it gets so messy!

Isla's "fish" look
Cheesy grin :)

We look at Isla now and think.... 'Who are you??'. She has changed so much, both in looks and personality. Her latest visit with the Well Child nurses have her above average in height (obviously not her mama or daddy's genes!) and average in weight (altho we think she's a lil fatty!).

Isla LOVES eating and will always have food in her mouth! Her favourites at the moment are fruit and veggies... altho she has also shown a liking for McDonalds cheeseburgers & fries! (esp hash browns for breakfast!)

She is an avid reader and loves reading (and re-reading) favourites such as 'Brown Bear' and 'The Wheels on the Bus'. She is starting to pick out detail in books, such as finding the moon in ' A Kiwi Night before Christmas' or thumping her chest when she sees the gorilla in 'Rumble in the Jungle'.

Isla is a real social butterfly which can be quite embarassing when you are out & about with her. The other day at the playground I lost sight of her for a few mins only to find her eating another kids food out of their lunchbox! She just walks up to people and tries to give them hugs...or beg for food...or flashes her cheesy smile at total strangers to try and get attention. Shame!

At this stage she is showing flashes of 'faalii' (must come from mama) and is a bit of a clown (definitely daddy!). Am really enjoying this stage - she is walking all the time now, even trying to run and is noticing more of the world around her.


  1. meany mommy having her eat out on the porch LOL put down a big ole tablecloth or material and let her make a mess LOL Mind you it's nice there so I suppose she really love being outdoors :))

  2. Maddy would chuck all his veggies over the balcony when we weren't looking if he was eating out there.

  3. Am amazed at how well Isla eats. Although when she comes to visit us she gets chocolate and chippies and all the bad stuff that Micah eats!
