almost four

isa is so very much a little girl on the edge of being FOUR these days. it's like she woke up one morning and she was already a year older... just like that... even though her birthday isn't for another month. as is usually the case with her, she goes through these rough times (usually lasting about a week) and then comes out on the other side with some amazing new skill or level of comprehension or vocabulary. this was certainly the case a few weeks back, when she seemed to be throwing a fit at the drop of a hat and we just couldn't figure out what the problem was. maybe her little brain was working overtime and the rest of her body just couldn't keep up! now she seems to be showing us that all that hard (brain) work paid off. for the last few days she has been amazing me with the things she says and the words she can use (in context) all the sudden. this afternoon she said, totally out of the blue, "Mommy, I am really impressed with this necklace you brought me!" well ok then! this is another one of mei's photos from last week-- apparently isa was really concerned about the fact that there was a strange brown shape inside her banana. can't say i blame her, that is the radioactive sign afterall! ha!


  1. cute pic of Isa... yes, I would question that banana as well...lol cute... she is growing up again.. wow... what changes she has already come through! Give her a hug from us!

  2. This doesn't surprise me at all. Talking to or listening to her is like doing so with an adult. LOVE the concern over the banana. I would have just not liked the fact that it was riper than I prefer. Way to go Isa...a girl after her mother's own heart.
