Wonder woman?

Bella got her helmet last Thursday and has been getting accustomed to it. She is doing great and as you can see from the pictures she is a total chunky monkey!! She is up over 15lbs now and is eating like a champ!! Machel did a wonderful job decorating her helmet, here are some pictures of Bella with her helmet before and after mommy painted it!

On a side note, a coworker of mine just had a micropreemie boy. Connor Wyatt Thoe was born at just under 24 weeks at 1lb 10 oz. Please pray for him as you have for our little miracle! Here is a link to their care page and we will add him to our preemie link too.

May the Lord watch over all of his precious angels.

Your little one is absolutely adorable. Especially with her helmet. I too have to make the decision for my daughter to have a helmet. But she is still in the NICU going on 8 months so well see. =] Take care

Great helmet. Yesterday at the grocery store I noticed that Ben and Jerry have an ice cream Chunky Monkey. Think they named it for Bella? LUV M

Man oh man that tummy looks like Rhys's... and the multiple chins too! She most certainly is a healthy little thing. Love the helment! I hope you have an easier time keeping it on her than I have keeping Rhys from pulling off his glasses. These guys are too smart for their own good! Hope all is well with you guys.

She is beautiful! Love the decorated helmet as well. It was so nice to meet both of you at Andi's birthday party. Mere was so excited you were able to come.

Good luck with the that cute chunky monkey...before long she'll be needing a tricycle helmet!

Hi! Michele, Mike and Brendan, Moira and Christopher all say hello! We are so happy to see that Isabella is doing well. She appears to be a wonderfully happy baby. Mike and I finally got our 3 home from the NICU, and it has been a challenge and a joy. My attention is everywhere, and I finally had to use the little outfit that you gave Moira to remind me to check out this blog and find out how things are going (do you also find that a good memory is a thing of the past?) I hope that things continue well, and I will be checking from time to time.
