Our cutie today!

Here are some photos of Bella today. We went to the park and then had some delicious rice and peas for lunch. She loves the swings, and loves to feed herself.

This Photo might be my new all time favorite. She is so gorgeous!!

This is how we eat all our meals, with Big City patiently waiting to snatch up her leftovers and foods pushed off the tray.

A Few more Photos for you

So here are a few more pics of our Ginger Snap. She is doing better with eating solid foods! Here is her face after some squash and couscous! She is so cute, I must give her 1000 kisses a day!

There is a free zoo in madison, and Bella loves it. She prefers to people watch than see the animals, but either way, a trip to the zoo is a good time. She went on her first carousel too. She wasn't too sure about it. She rode the panda and held on for dear life. It was pretty funny to see.

Every time I take a picture now, Bella makes a new, hilarious face. I rarely ever get a real smile...She always has a new face for me. What a little ham!

Long time no see!

Sorry we haven't sent out pictures has been very busy!

Bella has 4 teeth in and 2 breaking through the gums. She is rarely cranky about it, which is awesome! If she is in pain, she rarely lets us know.

We are working on her eating solid foods, she loves purees and disolvable things like cheerios, but hates to eat food in its true form. Everyday we try something new in hopes she will eat it. We have succeeded a few times, mainly with toast, pancakes, waffles, blueberries, banana and watermelon. She won't eat a pea or a piece of shredded cheese, or a noodle or a piece of meat...She is picky with texture.

She is completely mobile, crawling everywhere. She is lightening fast and a complete destructosaurus, as I call her. She loves going after electrical cords and light sockets. If not completely watched, she loves to chew on dog toys and shoes. Her favorite game is to see if she can crawl to the dogs water bowl before we notice and splash around in it. Mommy and daddy hate that game!

Her best friend is our dog, Big City. They play tag, tug of war and chase all the time. Bella is enamored with him, and Big City thinks she is his personal play toy. She has recently discovered the art of pushing food off her high chair tray and loves to watch him come eat it. I feared this day, and it has arrived. They are tweetle dee and tweedle dum. I am so glad Big City is good with her.

Bella is 19 pounds of fun, excitement, laughter and chaos. We love her so much and can't wait to see her continue to grow. She might look like daddy, but her personality is ALL MOMMY!
