The melting pot post

April 17, 2011

I feel like I have so much to catch up on and it’s not going to come out the way I want it to so here’s a stream of consciousness post.

Longer out than in: I thought most mommy’s knew when their baby was outside longer than they were inside but when I mentioned Feb 28th to some friends as Bella’s “longer out than in date”, they looked at my like I had 5 heads.  Oh well, Feb 28th marked the date that Bell lived outside of me longer than in me.

Here’s a shot from Feb 28th 2010 and Feb 28th 2011.

I loved that shirt and that apartment!

I love that Bean.

Bell was wearing a size 3 month dress here, the dress was a little large and this was before her most recent growth spurt.

10 months! Bella’s 10 month photo shoot went a little better than her 9 month shoot, she did give us a few smiles.  You may notice a change in venue.  We decided to start taking the picture upstairs in Bell’s room.  It gives us a little more privacy and gives Bell a little less distraction.

10 whole months!

You see Glowy?  That’s her BFF, she sleeps with her every night.  We actually have 2 Glows and are seriously thinking about getting a third and just keeping it in storage in the event of a catastrophic event.

Birthday Party plans: We are in prime party planning mode!  Who knew planning a birthday party for a 1 year old would be so complicated.  No pictures for this one because we haven’t send the invites out yet.

Park days: Bella has a friend that we meet up at the park.  Little Miss is 10 days older than Bell and right around her same size.  Little Miss is much more adventurous than Bell, she was crawling all around the playground and Bell just wanted to sit and play in the sand.  By playing in the sand, I mean, trying to eat it.

Because Bell is home with her Grandma all day, I worry about her social skills.  We are trying to take her out and see other people and children as much as we can.  I know that she will catch up as soon as she gets into school but she seems to be doing ok for now, it’s just something that I keep in the back of my mind.

Bonus! Shes the cutest bunny around

11 months! 

George is a new friend.

Big girl!

BFF Glow.

*Isabella can now sign for more and fan, she attempts to make the sign for cup and we know what she means but she’s not quite there.

*She does “so big” and smiles EVERY TIME.  She loves to smile.

*She has 8 teeth!  She is a teething monster.

*She weighs around 19 lbs and is wearing some 9 month clothes and some 12 month, she really needs the larger size for the longer legs.  Who knew we would have such a tall bean?!?

*Isabella can now say “mama”, “dada” and “hi”.  She is talking up a storm, her favorite word is “nine”, we don’t know what it means when she says it though.  She can also find us if asked, “where’s dada?” or “where’s mama?”

I can’t believe she is so close to turning 1.  Really, it boggles my mind.

***Also, if you are scrolling over the 11 month photos and are wondering why the title is Izzy8months (or something like that) it’s because N named them at like 7 in the morning.  Friday’s shoot was the first one that had to be done in the morning because of our work schedules!***

    8 teeth!!! wow! Aaniin just today cut her bottom teeth…and you can only feel them. (7 months). Are you guys starting to see the gulf between your friends with children and your friends without? We have a mix of both..and the ones without seem to not understand the concept of not being able to stay up till 2 am! ha!

    Very cute pictures. Have you started thinking about the prospect of #2? I was never able to fully commit to having the 2nd child…then there she was! I have 2 happy accidents! (the 2nd I think was subconscious though) It’s like jumping off a cliff.
