Isla at 5


How quickly yet another year has gone by! You’ve grown so much since your birthday last year, I can’t believe you’re already 5!

In the past year you’ve definitely come into your own. You have enough personality for ten people – you have an amazing mix of silliness, kindness, sassiness, and attitude – and while you’re always keeping Dad and I on our toes by testing our patience we wouldn’t change you for the world. 

You just finished preschool and you absolutely loved it; I just know you’re going to love going to kindergarten just as much. You’ve made so many friends over the past year too, between school and dance. I hate to brag but you seem to become friends with just about anyone, and I’m so glad.

Of course, on top of being a great friend you’ve also become an ever greater big sister to Norah. While you two definitely scrap and fight like any sisters would I can definitely tell that you truly love one another. I hope this continues as you both get older and you create and maintain a strong bond.

You still love to dance and sing and you love watching movies. Dad and I took you to watch “Moana” in the theatre and you’re still obsessed with it! You also love the movies “Sing” and “Big Hero 6″ and if there was a limit on how many times you could watch a movie I’m sure you would’ve met it a thousand times already!

Kiddo, I hope you continue to learn and grow as much as you are right now. I’m so proud to be “Isla’s mom” and cannot wait to see what the next year brings your way.

Happy Birthday, Squiddo! I love you!

Love always,
