Better late than never.

A Portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2014

Isla: More and more independent. Crawling away, only turning back to check that I am still there, I can barely keep up. I savor the cuddles and snuggles I get as they are further and further apart.

A Portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2014

Isla: My little social butterfly. When we are out and about, especially at our Friday Ladies and Babies group, she is off! Crawling after other children, chatting up other moms, only ever looking back to make sure I am still around. She loves being around other people and, as long as she isn't getting into trouble, I quite enjoy it too!

 Isla: She pulls at the gate as her dad works in the kitchen eager to get his attention. She seeks us out like never before, she is a VERY social little lady.

2013: The Year of Isla.

When I was pregnant with Isla I had all these dreams and idea's of what I would do during my year of maternity leave. I thought I'd be so on top of everything! I was planning to do at least a monthly, if not weekly, blog post. That my humble blog would somehow become a sensation and it would take off. I was planning to become organized, a top notch home-maker, you know one of those pinterest perfect mothers. I know, it is silly. I was pregnant though and I was FULL of all kinds of anticipation.

Then came Isla...

(one week old...or so)

(One Month)

(Two Months)

(Three Months)
(Also, Three Months)
and time flew by and I had little time for things so much less important. You see, my daughter is growing so very fast and I don't want to miss anything. Time with her is invaluable.
(Four Months)
(Five Months)
(Six Months)
(Seven Months)
This year, I will try to do better but, I can't make any promises. I am planning on posting at least one portrait of Isla a week, besides that we will see what I have to time do. My wee girl is growing...and time is flying by.
(Eight Months)
(Nine Months)

We can call 2013 the Year of Isla because, in so many ways it was. We are so enjoying watching our girl grow and soaking up each moment we can while she is still so little. May you be blessed this year! I have a feeling 2014 is going to be full of fun too!

A Portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2014

Isla: Little lady is pulling herself up to standing on everything and so enjoyed playing with Nana this past week.

I am a little late to hop on the bandwagon as I meant to post my picture on Sunday but, better late then never I thought. This past week has been busy but, so very lovely. My mother-in-law surprised me by having my mom flown in for my birthday! It was such a marvelous gift and I so enjoyed watching my daughter play with her Nana.
