We finally have a walker!
Isabella has been walking for just over two weeks now. She decided one day to try and stand on her own, and the next day she was walking (Thank you, Jaimee, for the walking tips). It went that quickly! It is so fun to see her little personality develop. She is silly and happy-go-lucky until she wants to accomplish something. When she's got a goal, she's all business until she's accomplished it!
In the first video (Oct. 8th), Isabella is learning to stand on her own. We'll never forget how amazed she was that her feet could hold her up. She kept touching her feet in curiosity. Have I ever told you how much she loves her feet- esp. her toes? She... loves. her. toes! Funny girl! She falls at the end of the video, but rest assured there were no tears. She's tough as nails... unless you hurt her feelings!
In the second video (Oct. 9, 2008), she's up and walking and oh-so-proud of herself.
This Wednesday will mark six months that Bella has been home. I can't believe it! Her growth and development has been remarkable. She really loves to learn, talk and sing. I don't remember if the boys could sing at 15 months or not. Maye it's just a "girl" thing. We can actually recognize the melodies she sings to us.
I'm going to jot down a few of her words, or time will get the best of my memory: bear, eyes, papa, grandma, nana, dada, mama, baby, blankie, Jo (for Josh), Key (for Lukey), bath, beeball (for basketball), bird, up, yum-yum, duck, read, and her favorite of all... MORE!
Sounds for: dog, cat, goat, lion, bird, duck, cow, horse, choo choo, car
O.K, I'm off to bed... !Hasta manana!
