Isabelle: 21 Months!

Dear Boss Baby,

Yup, that's your new nickname and it's so fitting.  You are such a bossy little thing and you truly think that you run this joint.  You'll point to a chair and be like, "Mama. Sit." or "Follow me." or "Come with me.  Outside.  Right now."  It makes us laugh because often times your tactics work with your big sisters.  They never want you to cry, so they'll do what you say... which is just how you planned it 😉.

You are such a big ball of energy and nothing except sleep slows you down.  Much to our dismay there is not one TV show or movie that will hold your attention for any longer than one minute.  You are a girl on the go and you have a constant need to be entertained.  (I feel like this sentiment was expressed in regards to Addy on the blog years ago.)  I am so glad that you have big sisters who can normally fulfill the role of Izzy's entertainer.  But if mama is there, you usually want mama.  And you cry and you whine until you get what you want from me.  If I had a penny for every time I heard, "She was fine and pleasant and entertained herself beautifully until you got here...."  I'd be a rich lady.  Here's a little glimpse of your busy self:

I love the "never mind" and "oh my gosh!".  You are such a clown 😋.

This month was Easter, so of course I had to get you girls all dressed up in your Easter finest and head to Bass Pro for pictures with the Easter bunny.  You were all about him until you had to sit on his lap.  Then all bets were off.

This picture seriously makes me giggle, it's that bad.  You're screaming and lunging for me, Addy's eyes are closed, and Emma has the world's fakest smile plastered on her face 😁.  These are the pics that we'll love to look back on.

And here you guys are before the neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt.  Different day.  Different dress 😉:

Dying Easter Eggs:

 This picture of you and your sisters at the park is one of my favorites:

You are so ready to get on a bike like your big sisters.  You ask for a helmet all the time and Daddy is getting the Strider ready for you:

Egg hunt at Lee and Sue's:

We went on a what was supposed to be a nice hike with the family in Hollidaysburg.  It was all fun and games until Addy sprayed bug spray in your eyes (by accident, but still 😠)
Aw girl, you were so pitiful 😢.

But your big sisters took good care of you 😊.

We went to visit Pap and Grandma and this is the last photo we have of him before he died.  We're so glad we were able to go out there that day:

The obligatory family photo:

More Egg hunts.  More loot:

And one last hunt at home to round out the Easter season:

Your love for all things with wheels continues.  You beg to get a helmet on and then want us to push you around on this scooter 😜:

Daddy and his baby 💗

Fun at Great-Grandma and Great-Grandpa's house:

Ugh, and sickness strikes us again 😝.  We can never seem to avoid those darn stomach bugs that go around:

We had to remove one of the car seats from the car for some reason and you were obsessed with sitting in that thing in the middle of the living room.  So much so that we kept it there for days and days because sitting in that seat reading a book was something that would actually occupy you for awhile!  You love, love, love this seat.  So Daddy put this seat in the car for you, and now you are forward facing.  Shhh, don't tell anyone 😉.

Oh Boss Baby, you are our little spitfire and you make sure that no day is boring.  We love you and all of your energy and sass 💗.  Happy 21 months little lady!
