Happy Birthday!

Today Arabella is six months old!  In that time, she has been home 22 days.  I’m hoping the next six months sees most of her time at home surrounded by love and family.

In honor of her life, I put together a slideshow of Bella.  It only includes pictures since I meet her, so her first two months are pretty sparse.  It’s long, but don’t feel like you have to watch the whole thing.  I loved making it!  She is my sweet, dear, stubborn, beautiful baby girl.

Happy birthday baby!

It is amazing how one little girl can touch so many lives. Her eyes absolutely penetrate one's soul. I look forward to meeting her in a couple of weeks.

Thanks for sharing her with the world Shelly. Happy Birthday Baby Bella.

Bella is beautiful! She is a gift to our family and we love her so much. Keep fighting little one!

This slideshow made me cry from beginning to end. First, because I am so thankful for this beautiful little girl. She is a blessing! Second, because of all this sweet child has had to go through in her short life. Third, because I realize what strength of purpose she has brought to your family, and to all of us. We keep praying for her.

I am a Bella blog-a-holic, I check the blog at least 10 to 12 times a day waiting for ANY updates on our sweet grandaughter. It will be so nice when we are able to check once or twice a day to see the happy home life without fear of a setback.

Happy Birthday sweet 6 month old!

Thank you Shelly for the beautiful history through photos of our beautiful Bella & her loving family. I love you all so much!
