Bella Rose - 7 months old





This little girl is such a sweetheart! I just love her happy little face! Bella cut her two bottom teeth this past week! She just took it in stride! What a gem! She sits all by herself - which just means that I have to watch her more closely around Kaley and Thomas! She sleeps through the night like a champ! We are still working on the solids - mostly I am just lazy! I am trying to get into a schedule of solid feeding time for Bella. She loves to eat solids, but I am not very consistent at giving them to her. She loves apple juice from a sippy cup. She is growing too fast! She is such a fun, easy baby, and I just want it to last longer! We love our Bella!

Today a tricycle, tomorrow a motor cycle...


These two crack me up! The other day, Max was giving Kaley a ride around the street on Thomas' tricycle! Kaley liked riding better with her arms under Max's, but I didn't get a picture of that! They are the cutest little friends!

First bath in the sink!




Bella has graduated from the blue baby tub, to the sink! She has been taking baths in the big tub before Kaley and Thomas, but on Sunday we tried something different! She loved it!

Seven Peaks - End of Summer Blast!

As a last blast of Summer, my parents took our family to Seven Peaks for the afternoon! We had so much fun! We took a ton of pictures, so here's some highlights!

The Prophet said to plant a garden....

These are the first fruits of my garden! We only planted tomatoes and cucumbers this year - to make sure we could really do it! We had our cucumbers and tomatoes with dinner last night, and they were yummy! Our tomato plants are out of control, and our cucumbers are doing well too! Next year we will have a bigger garden with a little more variety!

Smiles that make my day!
