Super Bella

We definately have our hands full lol! 3/31/11

My Bella boo never fails to surprise me. That 18 month old is like a monkey the way she climbs on things and holds herself up for moments at a time. Like her sister, Bella rolled over the day we brought her home on our bed and was lifting up her head the same week. Around 7.5 months she could pull herself up in a sitting position when Matt would lay her down on the couch and hold her feet. At 10.5 months she would carry those big boxes of diapers around!

Now for fun she carries around this 6 lb weight around or anything else she can lift. She started climbing out of her crib at almost 16 months. Luckily, she hasn't tried again for awhile. We also have to watch, because if Bella is hungry she will pull herself up onto her highchair's tray table and climb right into it. We have found her doing this on numerous occasions now.

I know there are other babies that could do the same thing and even more, but for Matt to freak out at her "superbaby" strength and ability, makes me wonder if she doesn't have some kind of super powers or maybe she does get it from her daddy, so he says ;)  I'm just going take credit by saying she's that way from me breastfeeding haha. :)

Disney On Ice

On March 2nd Matt and I took Alaina to Disney On Ice. Everytime the commercial came on Alaina would jump up and down and say how she wanted to go, so we wanted to surprise her. Bella stayed with grandma while we went "shopping".

Looking pretty to go "shopping" with Mommy and Daddy ;)

Matt wanted to see how long it would take for her to figure it out. As soon as we got out of the truck, she started seeing all the girls dressed up in their princess outfits and crowns. Then she asked if we were going to see the princesses. :) She got the BIGGEST grin on her face when we told her yes. It just made my day to see her that happy.

It turned out to be a wonderful evening with our lil princess. She was SO good and polite. I mean she's always my lil angel, but this night her halo was glowing brighter than usual.  It got me thinking that maybe she's fighting for attention those times when she acts up, so I try to remind myself that now, when she isn't so "angelic" ;)

Matt and I agreed to try and have date nights with our girls alone even if he takes a girl one day and I take one another day. I want them to know that they are equally loved. Saturday I am taking Alaina with my friend Jen to see Hop, while Bella does something special with daddy. It should be fun.

We got to see many Disney characters and almost all of the princesses. I never went to an ice show before, so I was really looking forward to it. It was so colorful and fun!

Alaina just sat there in awe and everytime a new princess skated out, she would yell her name and say how she wanted to give her a hug. It was so cute.

Matt even enjoyed it and said it was much better than he expected. Our Bella boo will definately have to join us next year. <3 "May all your dreams come true." I know mine have ;)
