Went to the Doctor last week and the stats are in, BellaRose is weighing at a whopping 17.8 lbs and is 28.75 inches tall! She is just so darn cute. The Doctor told me that she was now officially a toddler, but I have decided that I am not going to call her a toddler until I am ready, maybe when she is 2. She is my baby and I can do as I please!
Oh you guys, I got a little sad last week when I was looking at all her 1st year books, like "What to Expect the First Year" and ones along those lines, we are DONE with the 1st year!! We are DONE with those books!! How did that happen so fast? I know that there are so many more unknowns as we look down the road of her 2nd year, but our confidence as parents has sky rocketed. I don't find myself second guessing any longer, and if I do second guess then I know I was wrong, and need to go back to what my gut told me to do.





It appears that BellaRose LOVES water. She sees it and she can't help but get excited and go play, whether it be dog bowl, baby pool, or toilet bowl. She does not discriminate on bodies of water. What an equal opportunity baby! Just her luck because we are heading to the beach next week! We could not be more excited. I know that this year will be such a different experience then taking a newborn like last summer. Hopefully I will have some more exciting things to report to you at the end of the week. Have some fun in the sun.

Hey she can be a toddler for you until she decides to grow up. Some of us never do. Very Cute, I have a lake she can visit by the way. It won't be long until Rose can babysit.

The baby buns eeking out of the bathing suit... I am dying here.

I agree with the toddler thing being when she walks... that seems to make more sense to me :)

Oh I agree YOU can decide when she becomes a toddler! I think that picture with her face in the water is so great! What a cute little crazy girl!

Oh, this coming year is the most fun! My favorite is traveling with them and watching them discover things for the first time. She will just love watching the waves come up and get her. You guys will have a blast...bring us back some sand and sun, ok Sun!

Can't a girl take a blog vacation? Here is a comment: Your little watergirl is so cute! You're right, the beach is going to be a whole new thing for her this year. I don't think she will be content with taking naps on the towel. I wish I could see it. Don't you think she needs another beach trip around mid-September?
