The Isora Report: Month 3 & 4

Between our ultra busy soaking-every-last-drop-of-summer schedule and the lightening speed at which Miss Isora is growing and I haven’t been very good about updates. So here’s a very picture heavy drop of her 3rd & 4th month updates. Month 5 is coming up tomorrow.


Weight: 14.5 lbs.!! Wow!!

Height: 23.5 inches

Clothes/Shoe Size: 3-6 month clothes. Newborn and 0-3 onesies are way too small. Shoes? Nope…it’s summer. Really it’s even too hot for clothes. Hence the sticker on the tummy this month.

Milestones: This month she started her newest most endearing habit. Our little Boogie is officially a thumb-sucker. During our family trip to Oscoda she started sucking her thumb to soothe herself back to sleep and has been ever since. It’s absolutely adorable and no, I don’t plan on making her stop any time soon.

Because of her convenient little thumb sucking we officially moved Izzie to her crib in the girls shared bedroom. Once she’s asleep she’s asleep all night, well, as long as her big sister doesn’t wake her up. I love to go in there when they’re both sleeping and just listen to their sweet sleepy harmonies.

Month 3 also marked her very first laugh. It came when we were giving the girls a bath one night. Somehow we managed to get both girls into Isora’s baby tub and Cedella started splashing the baby. At first it was cute, and then just cause it’s her, Ella started taking it even further and splashing even harder. At first we thought she was crying, turns out she was laughing. Just giggling. With Cedlla giggling even louder and harder over her. She just adores any and every sweet torture that her sister puts her through. Poor thing.

Isora’s first time at the beach was this month too. Despite the chilly cold temperature of Lake Huron in June she seemed to really enjoy getting her feet in the squishy sand and feeling the cool breeze on her face. She never got a chance to put a fistful of sand in her mouth though. Better luck next year I guess :)

Favorites: “Alouette” Grandma Linda started singing her that song and she adores it, sometimes singing this to her is the only way to stop her from crying. Her Mini Sofie giraffe teether and anything she can put in her mouth. Flying like an airplane up in the air. Raspberries on her cheeks and tummy. ANYTHING that Cedella does is her instant favorite thing.


Weight: 15 lbs.

Height: 24 inches

Clothes/Shoe Size: 6-9 month clothes. A couple 3 month things still fit. Size 2 shoes seem to fit good.

Milestones: Teething has begun. The drool, the constant gnawing on other people’s fingers, even a little bit of bedtime discomfort. She’s been wearing her amber necklace and takes teething tablets when she’s especially cranky.

She’s now a master at the tummy time and rolls from her back to tummy and tummy to back with ease. In fact this month she’s rolled off the bed more times than Cedella ever did. The second you set this child down she is moving.

Little Boogie got to go to her first concert this month too. There was a fundraiser for the Broad Museum in Old Town featuring a band called Janka Nubay and the Bubu Gang. Straight outta Brooklyn by way of Sierra Leone. See hung out in the carrier all night and loved swinging and dancing with me and her dad to the music. And Janka Nubay even pinched her cheeks after. She was definitely the youngest patron of the arts at that show!

This month Izzie got to meet lots of family members and friends she hadn’t met yet. It was so busy I didn’t get a chance to take her monthly pictures. Between visits from our Canadian family, relatives from Lebanon and the Deirmimas annual reunion, it seemed like an entire month full of visits. And she seemed to particularly love meeting her cousin Mila.

And being passed around to everyone at the reunion hafli (dance party). Though, the party may have gone a bit too late for her.

The biggest milestone of this month? Food. She is completely obsessed. Haven’t given her anything more than a chunk of banana in her mesh feeder thingy, but she absolutely loved it. In fact she wouldn’t even let me pry it out of her hands without screaming in protest. So when her Jiddo offered her a cucumber she was all to happy to gnaw on it.

Favorites: Getting tossed up into the air. Being in the baby carrier on my back. “You Are My Sunshine” sung by me, Cedella or both of us. Hanging strawberry toy on her car seat. Bananas. Smiling, she’s always smiling.

Stay tuned…Month 5 is coming tomorrow!!
