9 Months

Well here we are… 9 months of fun and the trouble is just beginning. Isla can now pull herself up and walk around the room at lightening speed – you might think you’ve put everything out of reach… and then I find her stacking her books on the floor so she can stand on them to reach…! She can stand without holding on for 10+ seconds at a time before falling over so I think we aren’t far off walking!

She’s so much fun and an absolute joy every day! She now gives out high fives to everyone she can & waves whenever anyone or thing comes & goes! She’s had her first pair of jeans, trainers and now sandals which only help with her crawling faster – which can never be a good thing!

“High Five!!”

And of course she is obsessed with my phone, laptop, camera… anything shiny with buttons! I’m already failing at my pre-baby declaration of never giving in & letting her have it!

And off she goes again…

Merry Christmas from us!

Seeing as it’s Isla’s first Christmas we were always going to get a little creative & I couldn’t resist turning my little angel into a little elf… Here are just a few from our MANY photoshoots over the festive season!
