Here Isa is contributing to a mural public art project in Pullman Historic District, Chicago.
Isa makes friends wherever she goes. He social and emotional intelligence is ever expanding.
She always has the attention of others.
Here Isa is exploring nature with her Papa. She is kayaking on the lake at Gram and Poppy's house.
This is an old photo, but Isa loves to make art, and here she is exploring colored chalk art.

I plan to start using this blog to capture more of the girls' development and learning. Here are some photos of Isa's writing and recent drawings (4 years, 2 months old).
This is a drawing of an elephant in a zoo cage.
This is a drawing of a 'scary guy.'
This is a picture Isa drew of Papa.

Speaking of Isa, she is an absolutely wonderful big sister. She is so kind and patient with her sister. Isa is doing fabulously at school. We are sharing rides with a neighbor, and she is getting to spend so much time speaking Spanish. She is already using full sentences!

Vivian is a large and lovely girl. She absolutely adores her sister. Actually, all she really wants is to be touched/hugged/held by someone she loves, and for someone to smile at her. She is a very good human in that way. If she's fussing...hold her and smile at her! She will instantly smile back! She also looooooves food. In a way Isa did not. She is always grabbing at our food and she eats whatever we give her. It's super fun. We are awaiting a high chair from Chicago, because this girl could spend hours eating if we had one.
She is scootching around a LOT but not quite crawling yet. Was sitting up unassisted easily at her 6 month check up. She babbles a ton and is saying all sorts of combinations of sounds. She's an easy, happy, lovely girl. No teeth yet!
6 month stats:
weight: 20.25 pounds
height: 26 inches
