Such a beautiful day today. Took Bella's 5th birthday pictures.
So my baby girl will be 5 on Wednesday, can't believe it has been five years.
It is hard to believe that 5 years ago I had no clue what I was having all I wanted was a healthy full term baby but God had other great amazing plans for us!
I am so grateful and blessed to have been giving the greatest gift in the world of our beautiful health little girl. I love what having had a preemie has given me & allowed me to be able to share with other preemie mom's. I think it is such an amazing gift.
So in the last year Bella has been a busy girl. Lets get an update on her likes and dislikes & who she is. Plus lots of pictures! Mom is crazy with the camera.
This year we had actual snow without ice & Bella loved it till her butt got wet & cold then she was done.
She was Sofia the First for Halloween down to her stuffed clover to carry with her when she went for her Tricks & Treats.

She loves to go to Playschool. Can't wait till school starts she is so ready. She loves to watch the school bus drop kids off everyday in front of our house! So just made sense to have a school bus 5th birthday!
She is still healthy & growing.
36 Inches 30.2 oz
Naps are few and far between
I would tell you what words she knows but that would take to long. Let's just say she told me Sunday her birthday party decorations were Fabulous. Think she is spending way to much time with her Nana. She has her Pop wrapped around her finger. Along with her daddy & everyone else!
We are so blessed to have this beautiful little bundle of energy & attitude. Thank you to everyone who has followed her story & prayed for her over the years you are all apart of her life & I am so very grateful for that.
That's more than 3 and less than 5, Bella is so smart sometimes. She has been counting down the days till her birthday. This year she is so excited about her birthday she keeps telling me that it is like Christmas but all for her. LOL A little selfish I know but she did help me pick out all her party decorations and the stuff for the goody bags. We spent the day taken pictures and tomorrow for her birthday she will spend the day with Nana & Pop one lucky rotten little girl. Can't believe how fast 4 years have gone by and how amazing & wonderful they have been with her.
Ok be prepared lots of Bella pics of her Summer Time fun...
It is hard to believe it has been 3 years since we brought home our tiny little girl.
So since I have not updated in a while lets get you all up to date on the Bella Baby.
Lets start with this little girl since day one has had a mind of her own even on her due date. And she still does. She does everything in her own time and when she wants to do it.
Down to potty training, we have had a battle of the minds on this one and so far no luck. She knows the potty, she loves her princess panties, she does not hate the potty but she does not really want to be potty trained just yet. LOL
She talks like crazy.
In three years we never made a trip to the ER for healthy issues, but this summer she got a new princess chair and managed to fall backwards out of chair and hit the back of her head. We called 911 because she had what seemed to be a seizure. EMT's said she seemed fine and had us take her in. Doc at ER confirmed she is ok. Seizure like symptom was an over stimulation of nerves causing muscle contraction. She is ok and is her normal self. mom and dad on the other hand were a nervous wrecks! Once we got back for the doctor to check her out first thing she asked him was for chicken.
This summer we took her to the beach. She loved it lucky for us we have her big brother who takes her to do things that we might not do like go in the ocean. LOL She loved the big waves knocking her down, she just got back up and waited for the next one.
I also spent my first long weekend away from her in three years. We made a trip to Houston to pick up her big brother it was nice to get away for a weekend just the three of us. We love our Bella but we were three for so long that it was nice to just be three for a short time.
She loves all things princess, this is her reading a bedtime story to her baby.
