9 months and counting

I can't believe it Bella turned 9 months yesterday. She is getting such a little personality. She loves spending her day playing with her toys. I could not have asked for a better little girl. Actually I did ask I prayed all the time that God would bless me with a wonderful little girl. I just never could have know how wonderful she would be. Sometimes she makes me want to tape her hands down to keep them off her oxygen line but this is of no surprise after the months in the NICU pulling things out. Just a small price to pay for the most wonderful little girl.

We had a great Thanksgiving Bella was a big girl and sat in her high chair with the family. Everything turned out very nice and we had a great time with family.

Not the best picture of Bella but a good one of Big Brother. I get so few now that he is older that when I get a good one I have to share it. Don't they look just a like.

So far this month. Yes it has been that long since I posted so be prepared for a long post.

Bella's first snow 12/2/09. We didn't get a chance to take her out to play in it she had a doctors apt. So by the time we got back home it was all gone. But she enjoy looking at it when we got in the car. And it was nice to see the snow coming down. This was from our front door.

She had her OT visit last Monday all went well. She showed us ways to encourage Bella to sit herself up. Big help something I would have never done had she not showed us. She is really into sitting up now in her chair and checking the world out from that point of view.

Last doctors apt she was 12 lbs 6 oz. Everything going good. She came off two meds so now just a single cocktail of meds for her twice a day. Went down to 1/32 on her oxygen. We still have to adjust as need at night sometimes to 1/16. Breathing treatments are as needed for the smoker cough she occasional has.

Sorry for the same 9 month pics didn't get any as good as Nana's so I lifted them from her And yes she has matching boots that go with this outfit. Just one of her and PARKER at the end of the day.

Since you lifted from mine...you won't mind if I lift the one of Miss Bright Eyes in her high chair! What a face!!!

I, personally, can never see enough pictures of your little Bella! Thanks for sharing them. My granddaughter Morgan is six months old now it is, indeed, fun to watch them grow and change daily. I hope you have lots of exciting plans for Miss Bella's first Christmas! Take care.

She is just the sweetest little gal... so cute with the satin ribbon. What a wonderful miraculous gift from God...she does look like her brother. I know you and your family are so grateful and have such a powerful testimony.
I am glad you stopped by and left such a sweet comment for me.
Kisses to Bella,

Hi Jenn, what a wonderful Christmas you are going to have. Miss Bella I'm sure will be the center of attention, and why not?!!
I love the photo of her with her GrandDaddy at the table. So so cute. Sounds like everything is going well with her and I just love seeing that gummy little smile!
Hugs and blessings, dear Jenn, and for your entire family. You have blessed me immeasurably this last year!
