Baby Belle

I received an e/m from my friend Sarah B. in April with these precious attachments.  
Our Beautiful Belle when she was just a baby!!! 
 OH MY!!!!  
I am so GRATEFUL that Sarah found these and sent them to me!!!
Thank you Sarah!!!!

Now, although these pictures are one of the Best Gifts I have ever received.  
And I will TREASURE them FOREVER!!!
It is hard to not think of what our girl went through prior to coming home!!
She was a sweet precious innocent gem that was left in a crib constantly!!!

 I look at these pictures and I just can't help but wonder why we didn't get to her sooner!!!
Why did she have to wait so long???
My Beautiful Princess!!! 
Just left in a crib All Day - Every Day!!!

But that was THEN!!! 
This Is TODAY!!!!
At Therapy!!!
Working on Balance all by her Beautiful Self!!!!
It is no wonder our sweet girl was terrified of so many things where she did not feel secure.
I mean she laid flat for so very long!!! 
That's all she knew!!! 
So she wanted absolutely nothing to do with this balancing tool for the longest time.  
I think it is safe to say SHE HATED IT!!!
Well those days are OVER!!!!  
This Girl 
 Right Here 
Ms. Isabelle
She is not the girl that was confined to a crib for 3 years. 
 She is the girl that got OUT!!!!!!!


  1. Wow Bellie, just look at you go! You look so big standing up there on that balancing tool. You're doing an awesome job, so proud of you.

    Can't wait to see you again!
