Seven Months

"The Belle" (Anabelle's newly acquired nick-name, and don't forget the "The") is seven months now! Holy cow that is weird. She is the funniest little thing. Multiple times a week I break out in true laughter because of something she does. She absolutely loves sitting up and playing. She can go from sitting position to her hands and knees now, but then she just plops to her tummy. She rolls all over and plays with her toys. When she has toys directly in front of her she tries really hard to reach them, if she cannot then she ends up just rocking on her hands and knees and scooting herself backwards, and she gets super mad. Think about it, wouldn't it be frustrating if when you wanted to go forward, and the harder you tried, the farther you became :) She loves when I put on primary songs, and she loves when we play the piano - especially when her Dad plays for her.

 She loves to hang out on her side (yes, in model position that is) and it is super funny. {Yeah girl... show us those bones :) We are all looking forward to Halloween!}

 Anabelle loves going on stroller walks, especially now that she can sit in the big kid seat rather than laying back in the car seat. 
I am so so grateful for this little one. We've had some quality bonding time this past month while Shane was a workin' fool. (Before the Sept.15th tax deadline he was putting in about 80 hrs of work a week!) I am glad I had a little friend to play with while he was gone! Thank you hunny for working AROUND THE CLOCK to provide for our little family! I am one lucky wife and mommy.
Here is a video from last month that I never got around to posting...

Take Time to Smell the Roses

I made some bouquets and thought it would be fun to take some pictures of Anabelle with them. She is so curious these days! She had fun playing with the flowers, attacking them, and tasting them :) She was so entertained by everything outside, luckily Daddy joined us at the end to help me catch a few smiles.
