Bella walking on the treadmill

Bella waiting to walk on the treadmill for the very first time.
Megan helping Bella get ready to walk.

Bella walking with mom and dad holding her hands. She loved it, she had the biggest smile on her face when she was walking. She was very proud of herself.As we are very very proud of her. Bella has worked very hard to get to where she is at today. Bella has learned so much already, we can't wait to see what she will do next.

Bella taking steps on the treadmill. All the kiddos were so happy with Bella , they all were clapping for her.
Mama and Bella , mama was so excited for Bella walking on the treadmill. We were giving each other high five. Bella didn't want to get off of the treadmill. But we think she should start out a few minutes at a time. Then she can build up to a longer time..
Bella has done so well this week. She is working really hard on potty training and walking by herself. We will see her walk by herself one day very soon. She watches all the children run and play and she wants to be right with them. So i am sure she will be up and walking and maybe running some day soon. Bella can stand by herself and hold on to things and walk along them. She is very good at that. She just is not sure of letting go yet.
Bella loves her little brother!! There for awhile we were not very sure of this. But the last few days she has really shown affection towards Jordon. We will ask her if she wants to hold her baby brother and she smiles, so we put Jordon in her lap. She gave him a kiss on his head today. How sweet is that!! Bella is really turning into a big girl now. It has been so awesome to watch her come out of her shell a little at a time and really blossom .Bella has surprised us all. Because when we went to adopt Bella it didn't matter if she could walk or talk every. She is proving all of us wrong. She also is using some of her signs, when she wants to. Bella will also feed herself if her daddy is not home. When daddy is home she wants no part of feeding herself. She has daddy wrapped around her little finger, and that is right where she wants him.
We love you Bella and are very proud of all of your accomplishments !!
Yes, we love all of our children, big and small!!!
