Bella’s Week

Sit to stand

“OT made me sit in this new high chair – I don’t like it.  I want my old high chair back!”  (That is my interpretation of that look!)               Reading, though, that makes me happy!

Surrounded by toys                                 Swinging!!!  We had no nurse and Jason and I went outside to check on the garden.  Bella let me know by throwing her body toward the swing set that she wanted desperately to swing.  It’s been so long since she has been outside.  She loved it!

Her knee braces came in!!  She is checking them out before the patella guard is put in – and then standing.  I have such high hopes for those braces!

Beautiful Bells, you amaze me every week with your new skills and amazing smile!

She is SO determined.. in ways we all could and may possibly never understand. God has placed within that tiny body, a mighty fighter girl. She never ceases to amaze me and I look back to that fragile little infant that I fell in love with and I see now an unstoppable little toddler, that I still am absolutely in love with.

Bella you go girl .. you continue to show the world what the face of courage looks like!
