13 Months Old technically Isabelle has walked across the room...ONCE for her father (and I), however...she's really not into it. I mean, have you seen her crawl...speedy girl. So we're still waiting and trying, although her body continues to crumble if you put her on her feet (her way of getting out of trying). But Isabelle is capable in all other areas: talking, chatting, using words, hanging out with women and being a lovey girl.

Happy 13 Months Miss ISABELLE Jane!

This past moth has been very busy (as you can see with all the posts) and we have gotten to spend time with her Great Grandparents (GG Patty & GG Charlie) as well as her Uncle Nick, Nana Jane, Nana Janette & Papa Eric! So excited to see everyone else over the next few weeks! Until then....

Christmas Lights

I finally get it! Of course, like any child I have always loved Christmas. The celebration with the whole family, love, cookies, lots of drinking, lots of laughs and tons of gifts! BUT now I completely understand the celebration around DECORATING!!! SO FUN! I'm not sure if it is this way for everyone or if I've analyzed this incorrectly, but as a Stay at Home Full Time mommy there are no weekends, no days off and the only need for change is provoked by a tiny wonderful little girl. SO when there is a holiday dedicated to activities, events, crafts & fun, I am ALL IN!!! This Christmas is going to be so fun because of all the excitement of seeing family and sharing our baby girl, but the fun has already begun BECAUSE WE'RE DECORATING and I CARE!!!
So, here are the photos of Isabelle & I enjoying daddy putting up our Christmas lights. We don't have tree this year, although we do have a rosemary bush (thanks Mama), because we're leaving for the big day, BUT next year we shall! The decor inside is fairly limited, but we did get a real wreath, 2 poinsettias & some of our Santa's scattered throughout. Oh and our stockings of course...So no photos, but I'm working on it. Planning to hit up Target or Walmart after Christmas for some special deals for next year. Oh and I must get Elf on Shelf for next year...not sure Isabelle will get it, stocking holders, a train to go around the Christmas tree and so much more! So fun!!!
Love, Kat
PS - I do realize a number of you will forwn at the fact that she played near a ladder....but she's fine so get over it.

The Funniest Guy Around...

Daddy is Hilarious!!!

He is awesome!

He is cool!

But most importantly, HE IS SO MUCH FUN!!!

Love You Daddy! Isabelle

Who is the scariest of them all...



No children we're harmed in these photos...Isabelle just seems to prefer her mother (and/or women & her father depending on her mood).
Love, Isabelle
