Most importantly, Bella has started to knowingly smile at us this week. She has always seemed to recognize our voices and turn towards them but it is so great to pick her up or talk to her and have her give us a great big smile! Unfortunatley, I have not been quick enough to get a picture of her smiling yet, but I am sure I will be following her with a camera all week until I get one! She also seems to notice and watch the colors on the tv now. This morning I sat her in her bouncy seat in front of the tv. A few moments later I heard her making a strange sound and turned around to check on her. She was watching Mickey Mouse playhouse with a huge smile on her face and making a cackling sound. I would swear she was laughing! It was the cutest thing to see. Of course, I ran to get the camera and she wouldn't do it again, but I did get a couple of pictures of her engrossed in watching Mickey Mouse clubhouse.
I can not believe summer vacation is coming to an end and with it comes running the girls from school to dance, soccer and cheerleading. With three little girls, I do not forsee all of the many activities slowing down anytime soon! We have been wondering how all of the running around will be with a little baby in tow and I guess we will soon find out! I am so happy that September is almost here and hope that cooler weather soon follows!
Just look how big little miss Bella is getting!!!
