Stella is so sweet. She has a little lamb that I made for her when she was a baby. Jeff was playing pretend with her and letting her give the lamb "drinks" of beer. So, then she got an old bottle off the table while he wasn't looking and ended up pouring it all over the lamb. I was very upset about it, and I yelled. So, Jeff tried to wash it off in the bathroom and it has been sitting in there ever since. I think that was about 3 weeks ago. Last night we went in the bathroom to give Stella her bath, and she said "Sorry about the lamb Mama." It was so dang cute. I had Jeff come in to hear what she was saying, and she said, "Sorry about the lamb mama, it was an accident." She is the biggest sweetheart and I love her so much!

Sensitive Angel!

Stella has been so sensitive lately. I mean, she has always been sensitive, but it has just been multiplied lately. I have always considered it a good thing, I want her to be an empathetic person who is kind to others. I have multiple examples to back it up! Yesterday, Christmas, we were watching Home Alone at my parents house. At the end when the old neighbor is outside seeing his family for the first time in a while she got upset. She says, awwhhhh, and gets frowny and teary. We tried to explain to her it was happy, but she was still upset. She can tell by the music in a movie if it's a sad part. We watched Wall-e earlier and she was getting emotional about that one too.
Oh, we also were having issues with one of her Christmas Presents. She got this teddy bear that has bandaids and comes with a stethoscope and ear thermometer. So the bear talks and says "I'm ready for my check up." But when he says he has boo-boos she gets upset and cries. I am wondering if it's ok for her to be so sensitive. I don't have the first idea of what I would do to "correct" the situation, but I hope it's ok.

She has been doing super with her manners today. Usually you have to say "What do you say?" to get her to say please or thank you. But there were a few times today where she used please all by herself, and once Pretty Please! :) Do you know how dang hard it is to say no to a voluntary pretty please in a little toddler voice? Wow! She is so special.

One last sweet thing she did today, when we were watching Wall-e, the girl robot and Wall-e were hugging. Stella said, "They love each other!" It was so sweet, she is super perceptive just like me.

She also had an amazing Christmas, we all did!

Such a precious gift from God

Stella is so special and I love her so much! I just wanted to type out a few if the cure things she does. I'm afraid I will forget. Her most used phrase for at least the part couple months is, "Come back soon!" She says it to people and things, even if she's the one leaving. Another thing she says a lot they it's so sweet, "Mommy need to hold you!" She is a mommies girl, so if someone else has her and she wants me, that is what she says. A few mornings ago we were in the car and Someone like you came on the radio. It was a really neat moment to be in the car singing with my baby. She melts my heart everyday.

Growing up!

The night before last Stella fell out of her crib. It was awful! She was fine, it was just scary. After she fell I took her to bed with me, but she didn't go back to sleep. It was dark in the room and she said to me, "I don't see the moon anywhere, Do you?" It was so freaking cute!

Since she fell out, I didn't want her to be in the crib anymore. That happening one time was more than enough for me. So, I have been busting my butt to try and find a bed rail to go on the side of her crib. She slept in it last night with the one side completely open. She did pretty good. The first time she woke up, she was standing in the bed. I don't think she had realized she could get out. The second time, she was standing at the gate I put up at her door.

She is growing up so fast...

Christmas time is here!

This year Stella is really getting into Christmas. It is so much fun. She is very interested in santa and did very good when she went to see him today. She loves reading The night before Christmas, and can even read some of the lines. She is smarter by the day. Her memory is ridiculous. Not sure if I mentioned her singing the Adele song, but I will post the video. We also got an hilarious one of her with the iphone. Tonight we read I love you stinky face, I live that book. Then she was saying I love mommy, so I'd say I love Stella. Then she said, I love you mommy. My heart melted. She has said love you before but it was just so sweet the way she said it. Man I couldn't love her any more. Paw paw got her a little people nativity set and she loves it! She its going to really love Christmas just like me.
