Isabella is really coming along. She loves to watch her feet. She can't stand to lie back. When you lie her back, she does crunches trying to sit up. And as soon as she is sitting, she tries to stand up. She won't sit down. She loves to cruise the house with you and will sit and watch any activity you are doing. I just describe what I am doing to her and tell her what everything is. We went to a barn yesterday. She enjoyed seeing the horses, dogs, cats, and the barn. We talked about the sounds everything makes. Day before yesterday, we cruised around town. We went to see Gina and Carma and she went for her first visit to Daddy's office. This past weekend she and I spent the weekend together. Everyone else was in Batesville. I enjoyed having her to myself. There was very little time to bathe or eat, but it was nice to have an excuse to play with her instead of handing her to someone else to play with while I tried to get something done. I think she realized how much I like her. She has been much more secure and grinny since then. For weeks she has calmed when I pick her up and prefers me when she needs comfort, but this week she is grinning at me the most. I love her grins. She grins all the time now.
She was on the back porch with Blaze, William, Rachel, Grant and Morgan today. She was out there for a long time with them on the swing. She acted like she was a big girl.
David had her on the changing table and put her clothes over her face. He said, "Where's Isabella? There she is!" and she grinned big everytime.
She was adorable in her little bouncy seat today. She was batting at her toys vigorously and would kick her feet at the same time and grin. William got a little video, I think.
