That’s right, Isabella is a COW!!! I jest; she only dressed as one for Halloween. Bella has of course been growing leaps and bounds. The Dr asked if she could stack things on top of each other. She is already screwing on and off caps, climbing stairs, putting the right shapes through the right holes and identifying a dozen animals and their sounds. All that at 16 months.
Andi's training in the child physcotherapy field really helps Bella learn as she knows how to get children to figure out that they want to do things themselves and how to do things themselves. I am lucky in so many ways. Truth be told, I have felt this way since I meant Andi, Bella is the next step in being blessed. I feel guilty asking the Lord for anything else.
We moved Isabella to a toddler bed a few weeks ago and she has taken to it in one day. She even climbs in herself at bedtime and lies down. I think it is the independence that it gives her, making her room truly her room.
I am burying this as I want to be cautious, but we are 8 weeks pregnant with Bella’s sibling. We will keep you all posted.
Other than the above, things are moving along quickly with Isabella. Not a day goes by that she does not do something that makes Andi and I look at each other with big saucer eyes and wonder how she learned to do that.
We wish you all well and hope that the next 2 months of holidays find you healthy, happy and full of the love of family.
