Morning Girl

Isabella turned 1 month old on Monday, April 17th (Aunt Rose's & Uncle Joe's birthday). We took her to the doctor to find out she now weighs 9lbs. 14-1/2 oz. & is 22 inches long. She's definitely growing quite a bit. The past month has just flown by & Isabella changes every day. We have discovered that she is her happiest in the early morning when she first wakes up. This is the time when she is really playful & smiles the most. Isabella has been smiling since the first week she was born, but now she smiles more in response to things we do or say. She has even laughed in her sleep a few times. She's getting really good at holding her head up & just discovering the world around her. She really loves to stare at whoever is holding her & take in everything she can. It is fun to think about what the next month has in store but for now we're just loving the moment we're in.

Easter Sunday was our first time to take Isabella to church. She did really great, sleeping the whole time. We also took her out to the cemetery afterwards to visit her older sister. The wildflowers were beautiful out there. After church the whole family went over to Amy & Jamie's new house in Killeen for Easter fun & yummy food. We even had a little Easter egg hunt for Luke & Amar. Isabella & Jamal got a few eggs of thier own even though they didn't really do the hunting.

Happy 80th Birthday Ama!

We celebrated Anthony's grandmother's 80th birthday on Saturday. She is such an amazing woman! She has 14 children & so many grandkids & great-grandkids it is hard to keep track. (She even has 2 great-great-grandaughters & one more on the way!) We spent the day at the park with Anthony's family eating, playing games & just catching up. It was quite the reunion. Isabella did great for her first time being outside. She spent most of the day just napping in the shade. What a life!
