New Pictures, A few With Mommy Too!

I had a few minutes this evening before stepping out so I thought I'd take the chance to post the new photos we took today. These are of Belly's new Christmas Tree along with one or two of Belly and Mommy and the tree. Not enough pictures of Belly and Mommy being take.
Also, because I just couldn't resist any longer, some tubbytime pics. Enjoy.

Isabella's Christmas List

Well with the holidays being so close I figured, Well Belly figured, she had better get to work on her Christmas List. This is for her family. So here goes.
Fisher Price Toys...
Any of the Amazing Animals Toys, and I do mean any and all.
Ocean Wonders Musical Fish bowl (belly is a total fish nut)
Peek-A-Blocks Alphabet Blocks
Actually any of the Peek-A-Block sets.
Little Tikes Toys...
These first 4 are bath tub toys (Belly loves her baths)
Floating Fountain
Glow Pals Assortment
Bathtime Band
Melody Beads Piano
And anything else you think she might enjoy.

Mommy wants to introduce her to many different kinds of animals (stuffed of course) so anything wild animal related would be awesome.
Like Tigers, chimps, monkeys, snakes, Zebras, Lions, etc. You get the picture.
And also of course, a girl can never have enough clothes. For winter 6-9 months for spring 9-12 months.

So there is a rough Christmas List for yah all.
We're all very excited about Belly's first Christmas. The next post here with be her own private Christmas Tree compliments of mommy of course.

Now This Is A Video!!!

So much to talk about since our last post. Well Bella and the doorway Johnny Jumpup didn't really work out. She would get so crazy in it she'd swing herself around and ended up bonking herself in the head on the doorway. Soooo... we started looking for a Jumperoo, which is a stationary jumper not in a doorway. I was on the lookout for a Fischer Price Rainforest Jumperoo. Sure I could have gotten a brand new one but you don't want to know how much that would cost. So (again) I hit Craig's List, which is where we have found some GREAT stuff for Belly and began my lookout. After a few disappointments, I finally got my hands on one. hardly used at half price, just a trip to Cohoes.
We knew Belly would love it being it has TONS of cool toys and lights and bells and whistles on it. Last night was her first try out of it. WOW!!!! A picture, or rather a video, speaks thousand words.
But before I post the video, more news. Belly is learning to hold her own bottle so mommy and daddy picked up a few small easy to hold little bottles with handles etc. She's having a great time and getting really good at holding her own bottle. She is also learning how to feed herself (with a spoon of course) She LOVES doing that. Nothing more fun than putting something in your mouth and lo and behold it has your favorite food on it!!!
Her back is getting so strong these days that this afternoon, while mommy was changing her, she sat her down on her changing table expecting she would lie down and instead she just sat there!!! All by herself!!! Well needless to say it didn't last to long as she still needs practice and some strength but she is about a month away from sitting up by herself now. She can also roll from back to tummy now. THAT was a long time coming. Now if she'd only do it in the middle of the night :) mom and dad would be happy.
Let me see, anything else new to report. Well her Great Auntie Janie and Great Uncle Kevin were finally able to come for a visit last night. Belly had a fun time with them and she thought they were pretty neat :) They got to see her in her new jumperoo for the first time. We all just sat around giggling at her. Took her about 2 minutes to figure out what to do. That thing is a God send!!!!
Anyway, onto the video of the day. Enjoy all.
