A Night For Pictures

Here's some more:

More New Pictures

Well we did get some new pictures today and here they come:

How about another video. She is really chattering away here...


Reach For The Stars

Well maybe reach for our toy fox is a better title for this. You guessed it she is beginning to reach for things now. Each day she gets better and better. Helps that she has a few toys she is especially in love with. So those she really goes after. Trying to make those little arms do what she wants and those tiny fingers grab things when she wants them. Naturally everything we get in those little hands comes right to our mouth now.
We've outgrown all our summer clothes. Thank goodness fall is closing in. We're also outgrowing most of our autumn 3-6 months things. She is going to be tall that's for sure.
We've been showering her with toys (sometimes I wonder who enjoys them more she or us LOL) and we're just developing wonderfully as a result. She is very visual and has found the tv a fascination!!! Mommy is also beginning to read books to her and she loves looking at the pictures.
She turns 3 months old on the 12th of October. Hard to imagine 3 months have gone by already.
No pictures for now. Will try and get some new ones soon. Of her sitting up and playing.

New Video and update

Are you ready for another update. So soon you say? Well you know how they change daily. She is getting VERY good at sitting up by herself. Still have to get a picture of that. Maybe later on today. She can almost support herself. She is now enjoying apple juice as well and tolerating that really well. She is an apple juice fiend these days. She really loves the stuff. We go through more diapers as a result but so be it :)
Her vocal skills are also really improving and expanding. She is into complicated screeches nowadays. She also lets us know with these same screeches when she is displeased with something.
So I have another video. This time I am storing them at YouTube so when you click on it it will take you there to view the video. Seemed easier than trying to cram them all in the space they give me here. So enjoy.

New Pictures

Nothing new to report today. Oh wait a minute. I remembered last night something I meant to add but neglected to. So I'll put it under today. Isabella has discovered how to suck on her tongue. We think she enjoys that almost as much as her pacifier? I'll try and get a small video of it for everyone.
For now, her Grandmother Pitcher sent a couple of wonderful pictures of one of their visits with her not to long ago. She loves to play the flying came and how cute is that face?????

The Diary Begins

The author of this new Blog is her Grandmother O'Bryan and I will be, for the most part, keeping up on things around here.
I wish I had begun this when she first came into this world but well you know how life gets away from you when a new little ones comes into your lives. So it begins here, officially, at 2 months (or 9 weeks) of age.
First off, this Blog is basically the day in the life of our sweet little Isabella Marie O'Bryan- Pitcher. I will be posting all pictures we take and all the videos as well. And there are many and will be many many more to come. Every day she changes. So enough, on to the reports.
She had her second Pediatrician appointment. She was born 7lbs and 15oz and 20 inches long. As of Thursday, September 13 2007 she weighed 13lbs and was 24 inches long. Are you as amazed as we all were?
As to who she looks like. Well like most babies and the people who see them with their mommies and daddies, they could resemble either but from this reporters perspective and the pediatricians, she is the image of her mother. That is definitely her mother's nose and that O'Bryan chin can not be denied. As to the eyes? Well they could be mom's but it's a bit early to tell as everything to her is a mystery and they are always WIDE OPEN! But whoever she resembles she is a beauty and we're not prejudiced at all LOL.
Now onto her current accomplishments.
She is, of course, talking up a storm and smiling as well. Something, naturally we encourage every waking moment of her days. We've been trying to get her to push up with her arms but, to her, tummy time equates to mommy wants me to take a nap and of course is met with great discord. However, not to be denied her rightful place in this whole development "thing", she is sitting up assisted. I can see you all sitting there at your computers saying "No, she is only 2 months old they must be joking?" But I swear to you it's true and pictures will follow of that great feat shortly. For now, sitting is the only way to go and the only thing a true genius baby should be doing. So we sit. We also have enlisted her mother, father and grandmother as her legs. Being she can't use hers yet we are her legs. And boy does she walk LOL.
There is so much in this world to see and we don't want to miss a minute of it. We rarely do. Naps are not our favorite thing right now but we do sleep anywhere from 9-11 hours a night. So we can handle the up all day thing I guess. Only problem is she has so much on her agenda that we get little else done around here. I mean a whole world to discover who has time for mom and grandma to vacuum and wash dishes, PLEASE!
How about a little video now? This was taken around about September 10th or 11th so it is very recent. How wonderful is she.

She had a visit Thursday evening from her Grandma and Grandpa Pitcher. They also agree she is the most perfect little thing. Again, we're not at all prejudiced :) How about a picture of that visit? Okay never mind, the camera batteries went out and all we got was a tiny video which you can't even see. Well definitely next time or Grandma Pitcher if you're out there send a few picks this way of your last visit and they will be up here ASAP so everyone can see. How about a picture of her Uncle Corey for now. He is completely in love with her and is getting the hang of babies. All kidding aside, he's wonderful with her and, as you can see, she is pretty comfy with him as well.
Well I will end this for now and get this posted so I can email everyone to go immediately and see it.
This will be a private Blog for family and friends only.
