week 35...

miss isla grace is 8 months old!!
she is such a fun, happy little girl.  i can't believe how fast she is growing up.  she is learning and doing new things everyday.  
just a few things i want to remember about isla at 8 months...
crawling like a pro.
pulls up to standing on everything...  can even stand up with just her hand on the wall.
has stood without holding onto anything a couple of times (only for a few seconds).
loves the tv remote and our cell phones.
is learning to wave... that backwards wave is so cute.
throws her hands up in the air when we say 'yay' and clap.
still taking 2 naps a day.
has one tooth. 
is learning the word 'no' when she stands up in the bath tub.
is eating 3 meals of baby food a day and 4 bottles.
loves puffs.
babbles and talks a lot but no 'real' words yet.
has started to mimic sounds we make.
smiles and giggles when people talk to her at restaurants or stores.
she gives big open mouth kisses... love this!
more polka dots and stripes... and the cutest baby moccasins ever!
isla is fascinated with the carbon monoxide detector... weird.  and these windows are the perfect height for her.

she loves watching abby in the backyard.  doesn't she look like a mini person when she stands up... so cute!

we needed a new mattress for our guest bedroom so isla tested them all out for us.

delaney, alaina, and i hosted a wedding shower for our sweet friend katie last weekend.  we had some fun work friends and yummy food.  here is katie... isn't she beautiful!  katie is seriously one of the sweetest, most fun, loyal, caring people i know.  we love you katie and can't wait for the big day!

another big event happened this week...
baby jet kingston lancaster was born!
isn't jet the cutest name ever!!  he has a big brother jack.  jack and jet.  love it!
so of course we made t-shirts to celebrate the occasion...

isles was very excited to go meet jet!

lindsey and chad kept baby jet's name a secret until after he was born.  so she wanted to do something fun to announce his name.  lindsey dyed t-shirts grey then we screen printed his name on them.  right after he was born they announced his name to all the family waiting to meet him and handed out the t-shirts.  so fun!  the shirts turned out perfect and were a big hit.

and finally here is precious jet...

isla had a fun visit.  we missed linds and clayton at the hospital but isn't that door wreath so precious that linds made!

happy birthday jet!  we can't wait for tons of play dates!
(doesn't lindsey look amazing after just having a baby!!)
we have had a fun week celebrating and we are so thankful for the amazing friends in our lives.
happy 8 months isla!
we love you always!
