Teething...and Bella update. I never thought teething would be so hard on a baby..I knew it could not be "fun" but Bella is having the hardest time with it. Poor thing had/has a runny nose and diarrhea. Plus all the other symptoms/signs of teething.

She has started waking up at night like a newborn. She was sleeping completely through the night before this. I can see two pearly whites on top that have not broken through and I can feel two on bottom that have not broken through.

I had a bunch of friends on Facebook tell me their best teething advice..but if you have any..PLEASE feel FREE to leave it for me here :)

She has so much slobber but I think that is kind of cute! ha. Other than that, Bella is growing and doing wonderfully. I am going to have to baby proof the house this weekend. She has started to roll everywhere..she no longer wants to stay put and play with her toys on her quilt. That is so old fashioned apparently. She wants to be where the action is! ha! The girl cracks me up.

Yesterday (on her 5 month birthday) she started to get up on her knees a bit. I have a feeling she will be crawling in no time. I have noticed it more and more in the last 2 days. I try to help her but she gets mad at me..ha! She is so independant and strong-willed (like her daddy!).

I hope you all have a very Happy New Year (and safe!) We will be kicking it at home with the kiddos..exactly where I want to be :)

P.S. I will post some Christmas pictures soon!

Bella's 5 months old!


You are 5 months old! I can not believe how much you are growing. Your daddy and I love you so much!

You weigh about 17 lbs now. I am not sure how long you are..we will get that at your 6 month checkup. You are such a joy to be around.

-Just moved up to a size 3 diaper
-Mostly wearing 3-6 and 6-9 month clothes

You are a great eater. You have started eating solids much better. Peas and Green beans are not your favs but you will eat them mixed with cereal. Your favorite is act like you can not get enough of them! It is so cute the way you open your mouth like a little baby bird...I could just eat you up.

You have mastered rolling. You will roll all over the room to where you want to go. It is absolutely insanely cute! I think you will be crawling soon but I am not rushing it because we have not "baby proofed" the house yet. ha.

You still sleep all night, except for the past couple nights because you are teething. I can see one coming in on bottom. I hate that you are hurting but I know it will pass too.

You just had your first wasn't anything special to you because you didnt know what was going on. ha. But I cherished seeing you amazed at your new toys. I love watching you grow and develop.

We moved you out of your infant carrier into a rear facing sit up seat. You seem to like it very well. I love it because you do not fight me when I have to put you in it :)

You love your daddy so much but still tend to be a mommy's girl. I think you look a lot like me and your daddy.

Bella, you are so loved by everyone and I am loving every second being your mommy and watching you grow into your own little personality!

Love you forever and always,

Mommy and Daddy

Christmas Pictures

Yes, I am still alive. I know my blogging has really fell by the wayside since Bella was born..but I just have sooo much more to do these days :) ha! On Thanksgiving weekend, my sister in law took some family Christmas pictures of us. Here are a few of my favorites:

I have several others I really like but I cant find them on my computer for some reason. I will try and post them later this week :)

I am pretty sure I won't blog until after Christmas. So I wish you and your family a MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
