A Little More Bella

I think I'm in love.
Saturday I think I was in shock.
Sunday I was smitten.
Today ....I'm in love.
(do you see the little smile?)
How cute!
I think I'm ruinent!
That's Texas for "all done in"!
AND.... I have to say thank you for all the
congratulatory comments!
I didn't know any of you 6 months ago.
Before I started this thing called blogging.
And ya'll made me cry with your heartfelt words!
Got out the pink kleenex again!
Ya'll are awesome!
....with her Uncle Bo
Three men and a baby....
Here come's the hand off!
Which hand goes where?

Pass almost completed!


And she's a sleeper.
She hasn't wanted to nurse.
Just sleep!
I'm sure that will change at some point!

The balloon fairy!

Her "Aunt-to-Be" Amanda
plans on coming out every weekend
just to hold her!

Charlie telling Bella goodbye.
He's got his photos to show
the guys at work tomorrow.
And he's wearing his
pink hospital wristband, too!
When he left work last Monday his boss, whose name is Terry Bell, was giving him a hard time. He said " are naming this baby Terri or Theresa (after me) aren't you?
Charlie said "No sir, we're naming her Bell-a."
"That'll do!"
True story!
I am so proud of him.
He has stayed by Jessica's side the whole time.
Hung in there through 18 hours of labor plus 8 hours of pre-stuff.
Holding her hand and coaching her through the contractions.
"Come on baby can do it!" he said as she pushed and pushed and pushed.
He changed all the diapers at the hospital.
Learned all about nursing the baby and patiently helped both Mom and baby.
After bringing them home he headed off to his job 2 hours away.
He's one tired but proud daddy.
Reminds me of his daddy...Mr. Hero.
Who took care of me exactly the same way.
He's going to be a great dad!
Did I say I'm proud of him?

Miss Bella....
Stretched out in her cradle
for the first time!

Yes...I'm in love!

It's amazing.
I knew it would be wonderful.
Everyone told me so.
But I had NO IDEA.
This _____.
All of the Above!
And it's only been 3 days!
I needed those pink kleenex in church yesterday.
It was all I could do not to have a full blown melt-down!
God....You are so good!
And thank you Jesus for the new job that you are creating for Charlie.
Remember...the one where he can be home with his family every night.
Thank you too for the abundance of milk that is coming in tomorrow.
Milk that Mommy is producing for that precious little Bella.
I thank you that You are supplying all their needs
according to your riches in glory.

Have a blessed week.....
from my delighted heart to yours!

All I could think about was:

Psalms 78:4 we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD,his power, and the wonders he has done.

It gets me all stirred up looking at these pictures and seeing that sweet baby in the hospital. some people just see an infant. Not me I see
A history maker
A world shaker
A legacy
A mighty woman of God

I know with the grandparents she has and the parents she has she will always here of the great things of God. Faith will be something so a part of her she will not know where she begins and faith ends!

That is something to be excited about!

She is precious! I love you girl. If there is anything I can do let me know!

Everytime I look at those pictures I smile and get chills at the same time. There is NOTHING more special than newborn baby's, especially when they are your grandchildren. I'm going to be a Gramma here again any day now, and I can't wait to hold my little "Morgan Clover". I have no words to tell you how happy I am for you!! Take care, Sue

I think she is wonderful in all her perfectness!
I forgot to tell you that the 23rd is my Graycie's birthday...she turned 7. She'll be thrilled to get another Bella for her birthday.

Patti~Kay, I love your names together!! Kay~Kay is perfect! I am going to be "Grammy" some day. When my kids were little they made me read "At Grammy's House" over and over. Your little Bella is a doll! That was a big baby for a first time Mama, bless her heart! I had Jesse natural and he was almost 8 pounds. Holly had only been a little over 5 pounds so when they told me to push it was funny because I wanted to and didn't want to all at the same time, heehe! The new mommy was so very brave to forgo the C-section and let nature do what it does best! I have no problem with this becoming a baby blog...We need more joy and wonder in this world and what better way to spread that around than with a new grandbaby?? We love sharing in your joy!
Blessings~ LillySue
P.S. Been meaning to tell you, I LOVE your hair!!
