Who is this kid?

IMG_8190IMG_8193

I thought I knew who this child was – a sweet little girl with a quiet and content spirit.  Ah no…..  that would the little girl named Bella that was sick.  Almost two year old Bella is a totally different creature.  We have noticed the change.  Her nurses have noticed the change.  Her doctor has noticed the change.  She is getting healthy – her true personality is emerging.  She is happy.  She wants to play.   She can still get overwhelmed, but she wants to be where the action is.  She wants to be with her people.  She makes me laugh! And she is a huge Mama’s girl.  IMG_8166IMG_8223

Bella banging with spoons on a cookie sheet.  She was cleared to start working on crawling.  Lest this picture deceive you, she HATES this position.  As soon as she realizes what we were trying to do to her, she starts to squeak and squawk and shake her head no. Crazy, funny girl!

I just can't believe how big she is, and how old she looks! That shirt in the spoon banging picture is so cute. It looks like a Ukrainian shirt that we bought Arina!
