Bella's Birthday

Miss Isabella is four years old today. She's a funny little thing. Mostly quiet with streaks of red-headed hot-temper and an interior life I think I will never be entirely privy to. She is sneaky, eating a bite out of every slice in a loaf of bread or peeing on my shoes because she is mad at me.

My sister jokes that Bella is a changeling because

1) She looks like a baby faerie

2) She's mischievous and unpredictable and

3) She'd rather be outdoors than anywhere else. She's beautiful, fearless, smart and resourceful. I am so grateful that I get to be the mother of such a spunky, fun little girl.


  1. Happy birthday, Bella!

    Spunky and adorable... just wait until she is a teenager! lol

  2. Thanks Krista, I'm guessing Bella will be a handful as a teenager, but she'll be a super cool adult.

  3. What a smile! Many happy returns to that cutie pie!
