Little Bella has captured the hearts of our family and everyone that meets her. We want to share her story with all.

Bella Update

Bella is still super dramatic (where is the theater?), super cute, and super amazing!

She adores her niece Ellie.  We come up with all kinds of different ways to do her hair each morning, and usually by the end of the day, she has all of the bows and rubber bands out, leaving her long, thin hair in her face.

She adores her sister Joy, unless she is annoyed with her sister Joy, then her claws come out.  Sound like sisters to anyone?

She amazes me!

She loves her ballet / jazz class!!  She also loves her cupcake from Gigi’s afterwards!

She’s a ham!

She is doing well at school.  She has the best teacher who pushes and pushes her.  I am so pleased!!  (Don’t you just love her glasses?)

Therapy is going great – if I stop to think where we were, I get overwhelmed.

We are working on our fears of going to doctors and dentists.  We are watching our siblings go  (and survive! – not to mock her fears).  Slowly, slowly, she is getting there.

She loves to be outside!


All dressed up for church – where she is rotten because she can be!


She LOVES to mimic her big sister!


She got the flu – and, I love this part, she only needed breathing treatments – not oxygen – not a hospital.  Totally awesome!


She thinks she is totally big and wants to be involved in all big people conversations!

The Way She Prays

Every night I listen to Bella say her prayers.

We start our prayers with the phrase, "Dear Heavenly Father."

When Bella says it, it sounds like "Hello Father" or "Hi there Father."

Then she babbles on and on without me understanding a word, finally ending with a solid "Amen!"

I love it!!
