Bella’s Week

Because she’s adorable


These two love to play ball, rolling and taking it from each other.  LOVE seeing them being friends!


My crazy Bell – she still fits in the sink at five years old.  She was having a great time on the swing set.  And she has finally, four months post op, starting to take some steps again!!


Our friend Zachary stopped by.  She wanted to check him out.


All dressed up for sisters’ piano recital.  Love how she is leaning against the door and it looks like she is standing.   Note to self:  Bella isn’t ready yet for piano recitals.  Sitting quietly for that long – no way!  Oh well, it was worth a try!  At least she looked cute.

Bella’s Week

Sammi did her hair.  Bella is the cutest kid ever.  Playing the Wii


Bella’s 5th Birthday – Wednesday was Bella’s 5th birthday.  Her birthdays always blow me away.  And to see how far she has come this year – amazing! 

I went up to her school for lunch.  She ate two grapes.  Crazy kid!  I brought cupcakes for her class.  She didn’t eat hers, but she liked the attention.

I stopped at Sonic for some tator tots for lunch.  She ate a couple!  Wahoo!

So much of how we celebrate revolves around food, and she doesn’t eat.  Oh well.  We tried to present a dinner something she has shown interest in the past – chicken nuggets, tator tots, and cheese puffs.  (Not nutritious, but it’s her birthday.)  She ate one puff.  Sweet girl.



They were so cute – one of the boys turned off the light and they use a battery operated light.

Her teachers and therapists were kind and gave her little gifts.


Her big surprise for her birthday was to talk to Miss Rachel from Signing Time and Treeschoolers.  We all loved that!!  Twenty minutes one on one with Miss Rachel!

Happiest birthday my Bella – we love you!  We are so grateful you are in our family!

Here is a short segment:

Later Jason, Bella, and I went shopping.  She is such a happy little girl right now.  I am so happy that she is doing well enough to show us her personality.  How I love this little munchkin!

Therapy –  PT went to a class and now wants to take a step back and focus on her core.  She is looking into getting her a DMO.  Oh this girl – it was eval time and no way was she going to show what she can do for Speech.

Working in therapy, a stop to examine a leaf – how I love this picture!!


Playing with her sister – the higher the better!


As fast as I can load the basket, she unloads it!
