Merry Christmas! Love Bella
Wednesday, December 10, 2008
Beleive it or not, Isabella turned 4 months old today! We celebrated by going to the doctor's office to her second round of shots! After a brief moment of crying, she got over the shock of the needle and is recovering very well! :0) Needless to say, her two afternoon naps have been over 2 hours each! (Hints why I have so much time to post today!!) Lucky you!
Head Circum: 16 Inches (50th%)
This is Bella's new found trick. In the past 3 days, she has obviously realized she has a tongue. She doesn't know its rude yet to stick her tongue out at people, so for those offended, we are so very sorry! :0)
I helped mommy and daddy this past weekend at an event for under privileged families within four school districts in downtown Phoenix. I was dressed up in my Christmas garb and helped mommy pass out presents to all the families! I sure looked cute and I was so good the entire time! Mommy wore me in a sling and I just hung out, fell asleep and smiled at everyone!

This is Bella all dressed up in her "Turkey Brown" for her very first Thanksgiving! She was having a ball!
Thanks to a friend that volunteered to babysit for Bella while Chris and I took a date night out, here is Bella in her "little black dress" thanks to Aunt Stephie!
My first wedding! Congrats, Michael and Anneliese! I had a good time celebrating with mommy, daddy, and you guys on such a special day! Thanks, Cousin Hailey for the loan on my wedding outfit!

So, for now, humor us and enjoy our "first child" memories that we make such big deals about!

Today marks the end of my first week back to work. It was bittersweet. While I enjoyed getting out of the house a bit more than most days and I enjoyed getting back into the swing of things at the office, I also miss my morning naps with Bella and the slower pace I once enjoyed after her morning feeds.
Bella still has yet to roll over on her own, but she does like to do it now with a little assistance! We give her plenty of tummy time and mat time, but we'll let her roll on her own when she is ready! For now we'll enjoy the little bobble head she has become at times! She does have a great little grip with her hands! She doesn't really grab at the dangling toys yet, but when we put them in her grip, she hangs on tight for quite awhile!
While in Ohio, it was Cousin Travis' 4th Birthday. Hailey and I dressed in Brown and pink to celebrate the occassion!
Nap time with Pawpaw. This quickly became a evening ritual.
Bella did not have a 3 month doctors appointment, so we are not sure what she is up to as far as weight, but many people comment on her length. At the 2 month visit she was in the 50% percentile, but apparently most think she is very long and tall for a baby. I have noticed her growing out of some of her clothes faster these days! Chris and I still think its quite a mystery as to where her height is coming from, though! As you know, both of us are vertically challenged!
