…. that Bella and I were laughing hysterically together at Aaron Brothers the other day. She found a mirror (what could make her happier?!) and was “showing her muscles” and kept watching her self and being silly and laughing. I couldn't stop laughing.
… that Bella likes flipping through my design books and Ohhs and Ahhs at all the pretty photos.
… that while going through my Preston Bailey’s Design for Entertaining book we chatted about her future wedding. She gravitated towards pink peonies. Melt my heart!
… that Bella hugs back … TIGHT.
… how many kisses Bella gives Mommy and Daddy. It’s like she can’t get enough sometimes. Little does she know, the feeling is mutual!
… that Bella is a ham!
… how there is one specific place Bella holds her “baby”. She has to hold the seam of the ruffle and suck her thumb … simply has to. Luckily I’ve caught onto this habit and can now help her find the spot quickly. It makes her smile every time I hand her baby to her with the ruffle seam exposed. It’s the little things :)
… that Bella is learning and growing. It’s amazing to see her little mind turn and to watch her as she learns new sounds, colors, animals and images & can really grasp what we’re saying to her.
… looking at her big brown eyes and imagining the world through them. She is so happy and blessed it shows every time her face lights up!
… watching Daddy play with Bella. It’s incredible to see the love between them!
…when she squishes up her little nose and smiles so big that her eyes close and her head tilts back just slightly!
… that Bella loves me so much. What more could a Mommy ask for?!
