I was on the phone today with my sister, and while I was talking Bella decided to act out. She followed me around everywhere I went in the house just to annoy me. I had a hard time focusing on the conversation I was having. I had to put Bella in timeout. After I got of the phone, Bella came up to me and said "I'm real sorry. I know I'm not supposed to be naughty. I promise I will try harder not to do that again." I was thinking, yeah right. But she said, "I love you to the moon and back momma." Usually, I'll immediately respond with I love you to the stars and back, but I was taken back. Looking at my little Bella, I got all gushy. She has really grown up. I know she may have some behavior issues right now, but what kid doesn't?
Let's take a look back at some of my favorite Bella moments.

She was a really good baby though. At 3 months she was sleeping through the nights. Sometimes it was hard to get her to sleep so I'd sing all the typical baby songs, but the one song that seemed to calm her down the most was "This Kiss" but Faith Hill. Weird, I know. But it worked. So, I'd bounce her, slowly, on my exercise ball and sing that song. Worked like a charm! I think one of my favorite things about having a baby is dressing it up! Duh. Bella didn't seem too amused, though..
