Isabella has a habit of sneezing while eating. Sometimes I think she does it deliberately, waiting until she has a mouthful of food so she can propel it all over me. How it got all over her face, though, I don’t know. This picture was taken while we were at my parents’ house after Christmas.

Yesterday she somehow managed to tip over her new toy basket and was happily going through the toys one at a time and spreading them all over the living room. (I’ll post a picture of that soon as I can.) Today she’s got hold of an advertising circular and is having a blast wrinkling, waving […]

Isabella just loves standing. She’s now pulling herself up anywhere she can—including some scary places, like on the top of the changing table, and some funny ones, like on me. And she’s so proud of herself once she achieves her goal… just look at that smile.
Seems I never get a cold without it turning either to a sinus infection or bronchitis or both. And that’s when I stuff myself full of all sorts of over the counter drugs. To make matters a bit more complicated, I took a pregnancy test last week and it came up positive. So I was […]
Sorry no blogging recently. I’m sick. I’ll probably be out of commission for a while. More details when I return.
