Big Sister

It's been TOO long since I've updated Isla's blog. I have been incredibly slack (and pre-occupied) so while she's at Nanny & Poppy's place with Ian, I'll use the peace and quiet to update on my big princess.

Isla is doing very well. She's adjusted so well to all the goings-on around here lately, I am so proud of her. The biggest change for her to get used to has been the arrival of her little sister, Harper. Initially I was worried that Isla wouldn't respond very well to Harper coming home with us, but she's been such a treasure.

The first night that Harper was home with us, Isla went to bed as usual, but when Harper started crying at 1am, Isla woke up screaming, she hadn't heard H cry before and was scared LOL. Now, whenever H cries, Isla either puts her hands over her ears and waits for it to stop, or comes in to me saying, "I think we have a problem here" haha. She's too funny.

We haven't had physio since I last updated, it's been so hard to organise while I was pregnant (especially when her physio only works 2 days a week, and one of those days Isla is at kindy). Will try to get her in either this week or next, but it's difficult as I still can't drive after the c-section.

We've had a few lapses with the toilet this past week, I'm not sure if it's in response to Harper, or if she's just forgetting to tell us that she needs to go to the toilet. Hopefully it's just forgetfulness (is that even a word?) and things will work themselves out.

She's doing really well at Kindy, nothing but positive reports coming from there, although she has developed a bit of an attitude lately that seems a lot like her friend at Kindy, but then it could just be a phase as well.

Looking forward to Xmas this year, Isla is so excited. She's asking for a "Barbie Piano" - which is an electronic keyboard covered in Barbie - who I hate, but she's been asking for it for MONTHS now, so hopefully I can find one in the next 3 weeks! She's getting a dance cam thing which she'll be SO excited about, I can't wait to give it to her!

Not many new pics, I haven't had the time (lately!!) or the energy to take any, but will endeavour to take some tomorrow... famous last words...

Ally, I just love that pic of Isla holding Harper!

So happy to hear she is being such a good big sister and enjoying it all.

Had to giggle at her comment about Harper crying, hehe so cute!

Must be very so nice to hear Isla is going well at Kindy, makes you feel a little more at ease to know that I bet.

Hope her toileting picks up again soon. xx
