5 months and growing.....

WOW!!! I can't believe how much Isabella is growing and changing. I have already packed up two HUGE boxes of clothes that she has out grown. She can now sit up and soon will have her first tooth..... it is all going by way too fast! I wish she would stay this little forever, but at the same time it is so much fun to see her learn and grow more and more each day!

Bella's First Christmas!

We had such a wonderful Christmas with Isabella.... we could not have asked for a better Christmas present!!!
A few of her Christmas pictures...

Christmas Eve we had dinner with the family and then went to a candlelight service. Bella loved all the singing but her favorite was all the beautiful burning candles!

Christmas morning Bella woke up earlier than usual (6 am), so Marc and I had a chance to sit in the living room with her and see what Santa brought.

After crawling into bed with Nini and Papa for their Christmas wake-up call, Christmas commenced with the whole family!

Christmas was wonderful ... and we already counting down the days until next Christmas!!!
