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.
“I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”
“O Sovereign Lord,” I said, “I can’t speak for you! I’m too young!”
The Lord replied, “Don’t say, ‘I’m too young,’ for you must go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you. And don’t be afraid of the people, for I will be with you and will protect you. I, the Lord, have spoken!” Jeremiah 1:4-8
So I decided that this will be my last Bella's post for a while probably not another one for a year. But don't worry she will make apperances on my other blog ;)
I could take a long time telling everyone who reads my blog that Bella is the love of my life and that I can't imagine spending the day without her even when I do take a break after an hour I can't wait to get back to her and I spend that whole time wondering what she is doing. I think instead I will just share some picutres with you all of Bella's past 3 years.
So Bella has come a long way from the 15oz 3 years ago 1st Year
In case anyone was wondering if Bella has become a real Trashette the proof is in the boots.
She loves her pink Junk Gypsy T-shirt and her pink Cat Daddy Cowgirl boots. Not to mention some silver spoons. She is becoming just another member in the Talking Trash Family.
3/9/09 23 weeks 1 day Bella's survival rate jumped from 10% to 53% this is probably because most hospitals do not consider 22 weeks to be viable yet and for our hospital under 24 weeks it is the parents choice to put them on the vent. We had to choice to put Bella on the vent.
Among babies born alive at 22 weeks, fewer than 10% survived; at 23 weeks, 53% survived;
