Isla at 7

Dear Isla,

Today you turn seven. Seven! I cannot believe how big you’re getting, but I’m so proud of the young lady you’re becoming.


You’ve become such an amazing role model this past year, not only to your peers but your family as well. You have no idea how much your sister looks up to you, and I’m so glad you and Norah have such an incredible bond. I know it’s not easy sometimes being the big sister, but you do such an amazing job.


I know every parent says this about their own kid, but you are so incredibly smart! Your desire to learn and ability to understand new ideas is remarkable and you’re going to go so far in life if you keep going the way you are.

You’ve also grown so much in dance; your passion for ballet is so wonderful and I hope you continue to have it as your passion. Dad and I love watching you perform and we can tell how much you truly love to dance.


Isla, I hope you never stop being you and that you keep being such an amazing human being.

Happy 7th Birthday, Squiddo!

Love you for always,
