I cannot believe that this year we finally have our little blessing! It has been a very emotional week! Izabella has been so cute this week. She just changes every day and every day goes by so quickly. We have had the best Christmas! Words cannot describe how she has changed our lives and how happy she has made us. Hard to believe we have been home with her almost 6 months!! Here are a few pictures from the week. I wil post more tomorrow as well...

Nothing Exciting Today

I have been behind on posting pictures this month. I have to admit I don't have the time to post like I did before we got Izabella. Today I have time so here I am. She is growing and changing every day and it is good but it makes me sad to know that she won't be a little girl forever. She is trying so hard to walk. She weighed 22 lbs. the last time we were at the doctors office. She is babbling a lot and says mama & dada and bye and she knows exactly what no means even though she does not say it. She know how to climb up the stairs as Scott followed her all the way up several times. We now have 6 teeth and there are more coming!! She just amazes me how much she has changed and progressed since we brought her home. I cannot believe 4 months has passed so quickly since we returned home. We will have our first Thanksgiving and Christmas and have so much more to be thankful for this year!! Now on to the good stuff!

This is the newest way we carry out cup...

We finally turned our carseat around.

I'm gonna be 1 tomorrow!!

We finally had to put up a gate between the kitchen and Family Room and someone was not so happy!!

Look how big I look! This was a day at the mall and all that looking around just wiped me out!! Then I was having fun playing in mommies laundry basket. It was full of laundry and I thought it was lots of fun!!

This was our very first social worker A. She came to meet our sweet Izabella!!
