Bella's getting very active

Sorry that we haven't posted in a week, but we have had our hands full with the little princess. Machel had a wedding in California that she went to and Uncle Luke came to visit Bella. Bella has been doing some things lately that are really surprising! Machel has been working hard with Bella and with the PT to get Bella more active. She is army crawling, but doesn't quite have a full crawl down yet. She is sitting up really well and yesterday watched an entire Baby Einstein DVD sitting on the floor next to mommy! She is starting to learn to pull herself up and she stands really well. Enjoy the pictures of our little Big girl!!

We miss our Charlottesville friends!!

I love to roll and army crawl on the floor

My Nana gave me this princess ball

Watch out mommy and daddy I'll be walking soon!

The puppies made the outside of the window dirty!

I want to play with my big puppy!

The Big boy wants in and the baby girl wants out!

Wow, so great she is doing so much as her age... it's even impressive for a non-preemie. :) What interested her to become more active? Nothing we've tried works for Rhys. Though he is starting to throw fits when a toy moves (by him grabbing, pushing, etc.) out of his reach. Oh for the day he decides to do something about it! We practice sitting (which he HATES), pushing up on tummy, pushing up while on his knees, standing... The boy just has no desire for anything save playing while lying on the floor. AGH, so frustrating. I think I can honestly say though that he probably would have been a late bloomer even as a term baby, that is just his personality. Hope all is well with you guys!
