Bella is simply adorable...and independent...and lively...and hilarious...and loves to sing...and hilarious again.
Here we are enjoying the fun day on the porch...eating grapes and playing.
This dress was one of Cathy's dresses she had for her dress-up animals. But Bella decided she liked it so she put it on. And my skinny-mini-toddler fit into it!
"It's bight, mommy"
And, we're off. As you can tell, she likes to run!
Mrs. Cathy bought her first set of overalls. One Sunday afternoon after Bella's nap, she wanted to go outside to help Mrs. Cathy in the garden. And she insisted on putting her overalls on without a shirt underneath and she wanted her hat!
Doesn't this picture make you smile! I love it! Bella was so proud of her gardening skills.
Here's our beautiful daughter. We are in trouble when she gets older for sure...her daddy better figure out how he's going to scare the boys away.
We had a "first" in our household the other night. Bella is getting taller by the day so she was in need of bed clothes. A friend at church let us have some of her daughter's clothes that no longer fit so Bella wore her first nightgown to bed! I felt like this was a big turning point because I remember doing that when I was a little girl. My toddler has entered a new phase in life - marked by the wearing of a nightgown. Doesn't that mean she's older?!?
She's trying to act older too and wear mommy's shoes.
Here's our little man while his sister was in the garden. He's so pensive isn't he! I think he's a genius.
