Totally Cute Things About Isabel

June 11, 2007 at 8:05 pm 5 comments


(In no particular order)

1. When she smiles, it’s a whole body thing.  Her eyes become upside-down crescent moons, she clasps her hands together and she moves from side to side.

2. When I’m feeding her, she grabs my thumb and squeezes it over and over just like you might do while milking a cow.  It’s a bit uncanny.

3. She prefers if you kiss her while her mouth is open and slobbery.

4. You should have seen her face when she first tasted peaches.

5. She absolutely LOVES that baby she sees in the mirror and plays peek-a-boo with her.  She tries to trick her by ‘sneaking’ up on the mirror quickly. 

6. Her tummy which is getting rounder every day.

7. She startles herself when I burp her.

8. She squeals during her bath and looks disappointed when it’s over.

9. When she drinks a bottle, she gets so focused and drinks it with such vigor, she gets beads of sweat on her scalp.

10. She idolizes her sister.  She is transfixed on Zannie if she’s in the room. 

There are many other things, but those are the ones that stand out.  She is beautiful, delicious and a treasure.  You’re all going to have to put up with my gushing for awhile.  For a long while.

    I wish I could see her in person! She and AP seem to have a lot in common, especially the growing belly and hearty laugh/smile. We sometimes refer to it as her Buddha belly.
