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.

Grandma Nana and Grandpa Papi are here

Bella hasn't seen her Nana and Papi since January. She was a little over 2 lbs the last time they saw her and now she is almost 14 lbs!! My mom hasn't put her down the last 2 days and my dad has been spoiling her and making her laugh and smile with his crazy faces and movements. Here are some pictures of them with the little Bellaboo.

Happy Happy Happy Birthdays!!

We were celebrating 3 birthdays this weekend. First, Bella was 6 months old on Friday!! We are constantly amazed by how big she is getting and how fast time is flying by! Second, Juno our yellow lab, turned 1 last week and she has been a handful! Lab puppies always are but she especially likes to chew on things from hoses to fences to potted plants. She is super sweet, very loving and obedient, she will be an amazing dog once she grows out of this puppy chewing phase. Finally, we have the old lady, HAHAHAHA, Machel turned 29 today. This is the first of many, many 29th birthdays!! Bella and I went out and got mommy some Starbucks, breakfast, cupcake and a balloon this morning for her birthday. And what is Machel doing on her birthday? She is driving to grandmommy's house. Bella has a helmet appointment Tuesday morning, where they will take a 3D scan of her head and the following week we will pick up her helmet. So HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the 3 girls in the family!!

Here are some pictures of our fun weekend of celebrations!! Bella is loving all of her outfits (well I think Machel is loving putting them on her)! Thank you to everyone who has given her such an amazing wardrobe, also check out Bella's shoes, Nike's given to her by Cam and Cynthia, her first sneakers.

Birthday Meatloaf!!! Puppies love the meatloaf!!

Baby Chunkster

She is so cute and getting to be so big!! She is up to 12lbs 6oz and definately eats like her parents!! We really are fortunate that she is doing so well and so very thankful. She is growing right before our eyes and looks enormous to us!! 2 weeks ago she was 10lbs 14 oz, last week 11lbs 11oz and now she's 12lbs 6oz!! We tried to tell you all that she was a chunky monkey!!! We are going to begin to give her cereal soon with her formula.

Here are some big occurances from the past week:
Last weekend we went to Grandma's house again and then to Houston. Bella got to see her godfather Luke and Machel was able to attend a baby shower.

We have scheduled her helmet consultations and she will be scanned on Tuesday the 9th and fitted on Thursday the 18th.

We took Bella to the pediatrician on Tuesday because she had a mild fever and runny pooh. She has also been spitting up more than usual the past week. Dr. Johnson thinks it is reflux and Bella is on baby Zantac. She was amazed by how big Bella is and very happy with her progress.

Yesterday she was a bit fussy and did not sleep at all. Machel said that she maybe slept an hour. Needless to say she was tired last night and she did the unthinkable, she slept through the entire night!! She went to sleep at 9pm and slept until 6am. Then the little chunky monkey ate 8oz of food and went back to sleep again!!

Enjoy the pictures of our big girl!! Thanks to Cam and Cynthia for her new swing!!
