As everyone knows we have so much to be thankful for this year besides our Bella girl we are also so thanksful for all the wonderful people we have meet along this jounrey who have gone from starngers to friends support us along the way. It is truely a blessing to have been given such a wonderful gift from God to have been able to see his work first hand as I watched Bella grow from 15 oz to now 8 months later 12lbs.
Miss Bella is ready for some turkey but she will just have to settle for vegetables this year. Last week she got squash with her rice cerel. Hates the rice but loved the squash. Then this weekend it was carrots and today PEARS. I know we have not made it through all the vegetable but what can I say I am a bad mommy. LOL.
Me and Bella have been busy working on the house for Thursday and lots of christmas decoration for Friday. Hope you will all make it out to Winnie and Tulula's Christmas open house. What better way to start the christmas holiday than with some great junk. I know Mom and Dad have been busy pulling from buildings to make the spot extra shinny. Hope to see everyone there Bella will be warm and cozy at home with Daddy while I get a day out.
This was one of the first things I bought after Bella was born, she finally can fit in it.
Lets see. Tuesday Bella had her first visit with Ready Start to work with the OT. She is still moving right along. On Thursday Bella turned 8 months old. I can't believe 8 months has passed already. Can someone please tell me how to slow things down. She went to the doctor for her RSV shot, oxygen check and weight in. She was moved down to 1/16 on oxygen doing fair to good with that change. Stats range better during the day when she is playing between 95-96% and then drop a bit at night but this for Bella is the norm. She tends to drop a bit once she is in a good sleep. But put her on her tummy and she stats the best. She can even knock off the oxygen and I have no idea she has done it till I go to check her. She is making great progress. She goes back in two week for blood work. I have refused to let her get anymore shots and blood work on the same day. Seems to be the two together is what put her oxygen out of wack. And her doctors agree plus what choice do they have I have to sign for them to give her the shot. LOL.
We went on Saturday and got her Christmas dress and shoes. I also got to make a stop into the Funky Monkey to see all the new christmas stuff. I grab a big chunky black and white heart ring that matches my Betsy Johnson braclett Roby got me for our aniversary this year that I have not had a change to wear. Seeing as we spent our anversary in L&D. Can't wait for a mom and dad night out to wear them.
We will be busy busy the next two weeks as this is our first year to have thanksgiving at our house and we are transforming the empty bedroom (soon to be Bella's new room) into our dining room for the dinner. I am so excited about that. Should be a lot of fun or a lot of yelling between me and Roby.
I have a long list of project I am working on between now and the end fo the year. Still never found the spray for the glitter had to make a trip back to the store for another can. I am sure it will show up someday. Will post some project as they get done.
Working on some fun stuff for the Winnie and Tulula Christmas open house that I will be putting in mom's spot. Don't forget to mark your calanders I know all the vendors will have great stuff so sleep in, save your money and skip the black friday sales, For Winnie and Tulula's Christmas open house you don't have to get up at 4am. Sale starts Friday Nov 27th from 4-9 that is PM.
Started today off by looking for some adhesive I bought a few weeks ago for glitter and couldn't find it. This made me realise how unorganised my craft room really was. So I started clean it up and once things got put into boxes and organised I then felt like being crafty. Still didn't find the spray so that project will have to wait till another day. So I decided to make a thanksgiving banner for my kitchen while Bella took her long morning nap and played. Sweet girl she let me get it completed finished before she got mad. This year is our first year to have Thanksgiving at our house. I am exited and want to make it as festive as possible.
Now I am trying to get her to take a good afternoon nap so that she will be well rested for the OT visit she has today. But someone forgot to tell miss prissy it is nap time.
Check out my craft project love days when I get a good night sleep and she takes a good morning nap. And I can work on project. Hope to have many more days like that.
Bella has had a very busy week. Tuesday she went to Baylor to have a swallow test done. It was actually really cool. We could see her on the xray. They watched as she took a bottle of barium fluid to see how she swallowed to make sure it was going down OK. Good news with that is that she no longer will need the thickener they had add a few weeks ago. The xray tech said she did great and could start taken a regular bottle without the necter. She also tired rice cereal and they said she had no problem swallow that as well. So we have started offering her cereal this week. We couldn't get a good picture of the test this was the best we could get.
On Thursday she had her appointment at the house with ECI. That went great she is at a 4-5 month old in all her development with the exception of her social skills and on that she is right on track no delays she is right at an 8 month old. Go figure. She did not qualify for ECI to come to the house based on her devlopment bur they will bw coming once a month to work with her just based on her birth weight and how early she was alone. We are glad about that anything to help her development along until she is a year old is a good thing. They weighted her and she is 12 lbs. Can't belive it.
Friday she went to visit Nana and Pop while I ran some errons. Of course Nana did not take any pictures and is now wanting for me to send her some. Bad Nana.
Saturday her Tia V came from the other side of the planet which is Mabank. Vicci brought her fancy smancy camera and had a photo session with Bella. Bella wasn't very cooperative as she would stop smiling every time Vicci held the camera up, but she managed to get a few good shots.
Hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween. Just a few pics of my favorite things I got this year for Halloween. I love TJ Maxx and Marshall's. I got small print at TJ Maxx. For my birthday mom got me three Annalee trick or treat dolls. They are too cute in my cabinet behind my couch I hate to take them down. I actually hate to take any of my Halloween down. Halloween is our favorite holiday. Me and my hubby general have a Halloween party but well this year was low key. We got Bella a cute costume and tried it on her this week and well little bit was way to little for it. She looked at me like mommy have you lost your mind. Luckily I had made her a Tutu a few weeks before for Halloween so she was good to go. We started the day with trying to take pictures of bella in her Tutu and she was all smiles and possing until the camera came out then we got cranky baby who after two shots was so tired she crashed. Then while I was getting ready to go she woke up a happy girl just in time for us to head out. I managed to get a few somewhat good picture of her
We went to see Nana and Pop who had just finished redoing the spot at Winnie and Tulula's after spending some time with Nana and Pop we then headed to Oak Cliff to Grandma's house.
We still managed to get a few treats. The boys got Peeps from Nana and I got some cute vintage Halloween kitty's. Can't wait to find a project to use them on. And Bella got two new teething rings. That is right folks little girl is a mad dog drooling baby who can't keep her hand out of her mouth. No signs of a toothy just yet but she is definitely feeling something cause she is chewing like crazy on anything that gets near her mouth. Roby dressed up for work. Can you guess his costume. :)
