Izzy iz 9!

April is our birthday month. My dad, Tristan, Izzy and my little sister... so, I'm broke. ;) Today is Isabel's 9th birthday!! I can't believe it!! Isabel was my 3rd kiddo to go to kindergarten and the only one I cried on!! She was my buddy- we did everything together. She has always been very smart and has always loved learning. She used to amaze people with how fast she could do the ABCs in sign language. She could read before kindergarten and could do math. She was always so mellow and quiet- TOTAL opposite of Livie. She was my biggest baby at 8 lbs. 2 oz. I joke that she still weighs 8.2. She hates the word "Hilarious" so we say it to bug her. And she acts like she hates it when Sei calls her "Sassy" but she secretly loves it. :) Her 1st word was "Granddad" and that was pretty much all she said until "backpack" from Dora. She could talk, just didn't feel the need to I guess. She could walk at 10 months, but preferred to sit on the ground, raise her arms up and say "Granddad" because she knew he would carry her. She's very athletic and although she decided to stop competing in gymnastics, she still loves to flip around. She's trying out dance now and the teacher says she's "got the gift." (She didn't get "the gift" from me!!) She was 2 when I married Sei and was calling him "Daddy" (on her own) within a month. She has him wrapped around her little finger! Isabel is awesome. She makes me so happy and I feel so blessed to be her mom!! Happy Birthday Izzy!! Love you!
