on the way...

Well, my camera is B to the roken so it's going to be a while before we get more pictures... but in the meantime, I wanted to let you all know that it's not going to be long before Belle is walking!!! We have managed to get her to take a couple steps at a time. She's very nervous about it, but she does it and we make a big old production of it, clapping and whatnot and she claps too and then she'll do it again... :) SO i'm off to do some research to figure out what kind of camera to get!

Standing

Well, it has been a while (common theme lately) BUT I finally have this new computer up and running and while I still don't have my stuff set up for my camera, I figured out how to get the videos off of my camcorder onto this computer! So, here are some videos - some old, some new. :)

(but for some reason, they are all skewed, so everything is tall and skinny... haven't messed with it enough to figure that one out yet)

This one is a new one - from this morning. Our little Belle is now standing on her own for a few seconds!!!

The Sweetest Thing

So, last night, just as I was getting ready for bed, something spooked Jake and he started barking - right outside of Belle's room and he woke her up. Of course, she would not go back to sleep then and she would not stop crying when I left the room. So I ended up staying in her room last night on the floor, but while waiting for her to go to sleep, I was pretending I was sleeping so that she would maybe lay down and sleep herself. She kept looking over the side of the crib and smiling and throwing her toys out to me and throwing her paci's out to me... well, about 1:30, she finally sat down and was quiet for a while, so I opened my eyes to see what she was doing and I witnessed the sweetest thing. She was sitting up against the side of her crib, with her stuffed puppy in her lap and she kept covering her eyes then pulling her hands away and was playing peek-a-boo with her puppy!!! The she would pet the puppy and clap her hands and do it all over again... It was the sweetest thing. Even though we didn't get to sleep until 2:15am, I'm glad I got to witness that special moment! :)

Ticklish

Our Little Miss is VERY ticklish... She cracks up when Nick tickles her. :)

Learning to walk!

So, I got Belle a new little walker/bike thingy today. One of those little things that you put upright and they use it as a walker and then you can put it down and it's a little car thingy that they ride on. Well, it took her about 5 minutes to figure it out! She might be walking before we all know it! :) Maybe I should have waited to get this... oops.

Oh yeah - and she STOOD ON HER OWN today!!! It lasted about 5 seconds, but she did it! :)
