play time!

This is what bella loooks like everyday. She has to be wearing her nightie gown even if I get her dressed, she goes in her room and comes out with this on! and she discovered the rabbit in the top of her closet, that my mom made for me when I was a little ballerina. Bella loves to dance with her! she named her Lavina...???

Little things that make me smile!

I have been needing something to look forward to lately, so I jumed on the valentines crafts, and the girls and I went out to get some fresh flowers and heart candies!!

Lela's walking!

see this little mischevious face? I am SO in for it!

and this is a thing of the past! I am so sad that I didnt get any good pictures of her stink bug crawl!

Now I am dealing with this!

...and this!

But these two are starting to slowly become buddies! its so fun to see them play happily together, but I have a feeling that one of these days, Lela is going to be able to pounce on Bella and get her back for all these months of torcher!

My baby is officially walking! yesterday she crawled only 3 or 4 times throughout the day, and when Dad comes home now, she walks to the door while waving her hand and saying da, da! Its so cute but kindof sad that she is getting big so fast!

Snow play

Yesterday we got dumped on, so I encouraged Bella to go out and play for a bit. She is such a home body, really loves to just be inside at home all the time! that lasted about 60 seconds, so we decided to try some other activity and made a little craft that aunt Cho gave her for Christmas, she was so into that!

We're back!

see the little scab in between her eyes? well, that is what she needed the bandaid for! she placed it herself!

Grandma came over to help me make some new pillows for our couch. She was telling Bella stories like Epimandas and Little Red Riding Hood, Bella was completely enthrawled!

I got one of them together, both smiling! amazing!

the other day, I walked in the girls room to find this! I guess she likes bananas,....whole!

my fluffy puffin!

So this is my least favorite month, it's cold, its grey, it's dark by 5:00 and everybody is sick! we have been sick for 3 weeks, but are pulling out of it and starting to join society again. Can we just take this month out of the calendar and add another month in the spring or fall? anyway, I'm a big raunch, but I decided to update my blog and add some random photo's from the past few weeks.

Baby Olea

Is this really my baby? what a funny face she makes sometimes! she is nine months and getting so big! why does she insist on getting in the trash? yucky! i have to keep the bathroom door shut because this is her favorite room, she loves to play in the toilet too! when I do finally let her in for bath-time she yells at the top of her lungs in excitement!

Bella gets a hair cut

Lately Bella's hair has been so tangly! She tells me that in the night while she is sleeping, the fairies come and play in her hair and that is why she has so many snarls, so I decided it was time for a hair cut! Jan cut about 7 inches off. I don't know why it took me this long to think of cutting it!

Popsicles and bubble gum

I thought it was winter... but it seems these days that all Bella wants to eat is popsicles and bubble gum! aside from the gallon of milk she consumes daily. Does that count for some nutrition?
