Story Time

One of my favorite things to do is read stories with Isabella before bed. She has gotten so smart that when she knows its the last book we're going to read and we get towards the end of the the story she flips back to the beginning of the book to make story time last longer! I remember hearing stories of myself stalling at bed time.

Here it is!

Today we were all three in our bathroom getting ready for our day. Isabella stopped and looked at Ben because he had a piece of toilet paper on his chin. Ben said, "I cut my chin shaving, Daddy has and owie." Isabella was okay with his answer and left the room. She came back saying, "Here it is! Here it is!" She was holding her Winnie Pooh band aids in her hand.She pulled one out and handed it to Ben! She was so proud of herself for being able to help!

We just came home from a four day trip to Saint Louis to visit my family. Every morning when we were there Isabella's cousin Abigail (who is only 12 weeks older than her) came over to play. The girls are the same age and they love playing together. They spend a lot of time wanting the toy the other one has but that is typical for their age. Saturday when we were at Abigail's house Isabella told me she wanted water. I gave her her cup but she directed me into the kitchen and into the cabinets until I found Abigail's cup and she asked me to fill it up for her. The girls have always traded cups when they play together. It's one of the cute things they do.
Tuesday Abiggail and Leslie went back to mom and dads house to help mom with some things. Abigail was expecting to see Bella again. When she realized Isabella wasn't there to play she began to cry, "Bella, Bella". I'm so glad our girls love each other so much!
