I first met Bella when she was still in her mommy’s belly. Since then I came back to see her after she was born, and now for her first birthday/baptism. When I sat down next to her I couldn’t believe how much she’s grown, her big beautiful eyes just like her mommy, and her personality! Oh my goodness she is animated.
Have I ever mentioned how much I love animated babies? Because I do. I think they’re fantastic. When my sister was little she was a constant motor just humming along. I remember her in her walker (why oh why don’t they make those any longer? they were fun for decades!) peering at me around corners trying to run up behind me with a sneak attack. We all would pretend we didn’t see her and then she would run at us full speed ahead laughing hysterically.
At the church Bella spotted her family sitting nearby and was talking, waving, trying whatever she could to get their attention. She couldn’t believe that they weren’t coming right over to pick her up. Once the priest had baptized her you could see she was somewhat upset, why did he do that to her? She was wet! Later she decided she’d had enough and it was now her aunties duty to hold her hand and propel her around the party. In short, she was adorable.
I will see you again at Vivi’s wedding next year, please stay cute! I expect you to start recognizing me (okay at least a little bit!) soon.
This was her mommy’s necklace. Don’t you love things with history?This is Bella pointing out that she is now wet. Unacceptable!Did I mention Abril had hired a fairy for Bella’s party? There were also bubbles. And face painting. And balloon animals.The fairy didn’t create these cute little girls, but she did paint their faces.
Hope you enjoyed!
