I have been wanting to get one of these set up for a long time. I have a few friends that have some pretty amazing blogs and it inspired me to create one of our own to share with our family and friends near and far!
Today is Christmas Eve and our little family is kind of just hanging around. We slept in, took nice long showers, talked to Grammy and Grampy, Grandma, and then decided to head out for a bite to eat and some last minute ingredients for this amazing soup recipe off a friend of mines recipe blog. Jeremy is currently taking a nap while I am getting this blog set up while my babysitter, (Dora), is keeping my girls occupied!
I can't believe that Madelyn (Maddy) is already five months old! She is amazing! She has been sitting up for a few weeks now and is just starting to cut a tooth! She loves watching Bella and observing the way she does things. She just thinks Bella is the COOLEST!!
Bella is loving the whole I am a big girl/big sister role! She adores Maddy; a little rough with her, but you can tell she is enamored by Maddy and vice versa. She wants Maddy to sleep with her and eat with her and go play on the slide with her etc. Hopefully this lasts! She has been attending a one day a week play-school since September and she is doing rather well! Her teachers Ms. Ali and Ms. April say she is very, very bright but rather clumsy! A two year old she has indeed become!
Here she is hugging a Christmas Penguin up at the "North Pole" (Sea World). She is becoming quite the young child now, not so much a toddler anymore!
Sea World was so much fun this year! I have to say it was quite the impulsive, last minute get up and go decision. We left early that afternoon and came home late that night, but it was well worth the effort! Bella loved visiting the North Pole! She loved Shamu and all the lights and Christmas trees. It was an extremely special day for both Jeremy and I. You never understand how amazing bringing children into this world is until every cute funny thing that they do just makes your heart melt! Seeing her reaction to the ever-famous Shamu was something that neither Jeremy nor I will ever forget. Below is a short video of all the "snow" falling on Boo-Boo at Sea World Orlando! Merry Christmas Eve!
