She's all growed up

Isla insisted on a "friends" party this year.  
And since she is now 7 she had to have it her way.

She's my one and only girl and it breaks my heart to see her grow up.  I can still remember our first day together in the hospital.  I was dead tired but could not sleep.  For the first year of her life I felt as though I had won the lottery.  And, truly, I had.  

This year isla quit biting her nails cold-turkey so she could get her ears pierced.  Our previous rule was that she had to be 8 years old but told her if she didn't bite her nails for a week, she could have pierced earrings.  She did it.  No cheating. No problem!

She loves to read and write.  And her favorite thing to write is SONGS.  

She also is the best big sister to Macrae and Rhett.  She helps out with anything they need.  And I recently taught her how to change diapers.
