Letters to Our Daughters – June


Dear Isla,

This is who you are at almost 19 months old.

You love to drink from a Tervis tumbler with no lid or straw. You’re very careful and watch us to make sure we’re watching you and think you’re a big deal. You are a very big deal.

You are starting to give strangers the stink eye. But then you yell ‘Bye’ really loud which I think is cute but might make the person think that’s your polite way of saying GTFO.

You call me Tee and you point to pictures of me and say “teeee”. 😉 It’s so sweet.

When I came home from work tonight you grabbed my badge and kissed my picture. You know you’re being silly too.

Your hair has started to part on one side. You have the same cowlick (eww why does it look so gross typed out like that?) as me on the same side of your hairline. It looks like your bangs are cut but they’re NOT!

You pet Chow and Dexter and say “sofffftt” and as you say this you begin to say it louder and pet them less softly until someone says “okay that’s probably enough!” 😉

You are so silly and love to dance to Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke. You steal my phone and find your way to rdio in a half second and in another half second you’re dancing! Your dance moves are so awesome. Like, really! And the head shake and the finger point and it’s just so stinking hilarious I’m gonna have to post a video soon.

You are the cutest, silliest, sweetest, craziest little girl I have ever seen in my life! I love you more than you’ll ever know <3
