My Busy One Year Old

Do you ever feel like you are so far behind that you don't even know where to begin? That is how I feel about blogging right now. There are so many things I want to blog about with so little time to do it. Even right now I am trying to type while my one year old tries to type for me.
Whenever I think life is busy it just seems to get busier. We have once again started the crazy process of moving. We have 6 weeks left in Cooperstown, then on to Rochester. We are in the process of buying a house - very exciting. I will blog more about that later. If all goes well, we will be moving on May 30th and flying to Utah on May 31st. I can't believe it is that time already. But first things first.

Our beautiful little Isabella turned 1 years old on Feb. 4. She is such a sweet girl. She is walking all over the place and just loves to explore. Her smile and laugh can turn a bad day - good. We are so excited to get to Utah so that our family can get to know this little girl. Most of the fam and many of our friend have yet to meet her in person.
I have noticed that I am able to enjoy each stage more with Bella than I did with Savannah. I was always so stressed with Savannah and trying to figure out how to be a mom. I don't think I have completely figured it out but I am able to enjoy it more this time around. Of course it helps that Bella is my little mama's girl and loves to snuggle.
We had a low key birthday celebration with our friends the Harry's. Once Bella tasted the yummy frosting, she dug right in. The ice cream was also a big hit. All was well until we heard a weird sound in the middle of the night. Seth went into Bella's room and found that she had thrown-up everywhere. We thought we had probably just stuffed the poor girl with way too many sweets. Then two days later Savannah started throwing up and it lasted all day long. We were very glad when that stomach bug left our house.
Here are some more pictures and a video of our sweet little Bella.

I love this girl!

Bella loves to wear Savannah's bike helmet. The funny thing is it almost fits her.

Looking cool in my new sunglasses.

I love seeing this face every morning. She wakes up so happy.
