As summer comes to an end, we having been spending lots of time outside. Isabelle went to the zoo a couple more times over the past few weeks. She loves looking at all of the animals and giving kisses to the "Nemo fishes." Her favorite animals are usually the elephants, giraffes, and bears (all come with their own sounds!) Here is a picture of Isabelle with her friend Ava by the gorillas.
We also started going to Pajama Storytime at the Waukesha library in the evenings. Isabelle has changed a lot since we went in the summer - a lot more mobile and curious. She likes the songs and stories, but usually has a hard time sitting still for more than a few minutes. We have to take a lot of breaks to walk around, color, or play with blocks to make it through the half-hour! She goes to storytime in my library in Germantown during the week with Grandma Michelle as well. Isabelle has been working hard on her "1000 Books Before Kindergarten" program again this year - check out our favorite books at the bottom! We also have been going to toddler music class on Monday evenings.
