The Truth? You Can't Handle The Truth!

Have I got some news for y'all!!! Take a good look at this photo of Bella. The next photos I will be putting up for show and tell will be totally different! Her C-pac was removed and a nasal line is now in its place. She began her immunizations today just like a normal two month old baby. She was taken out of her glass castle and placed in a normal nursery bed. The nurses are putting her off and on in a infant seat so she can take a look around the NICU and let the other babies see what they have to look forward to. AND...MY BABY HAS CLOTHES ON!!! Not that she likes them, but she has britches and everything. Isn't God good! This all means that she will be coming home and soon. You can't see me, but trust me, the tears and the smile says it all! Thank you God and thank you my friends for all your prayers. Isn't she just the perfect little southern girl? A true lady always wears gloves!To put a cherry on the top of my day, Lisa at La Rustique Market gave me the Lovely Blog Award AND Shelley at Sweet Pea Home has tagged me. Y'all know what that means, right? I get to talk even more about myself. Just when you thought it was safe to go into the blog pool! If you are bored to death with me, I suggest you click off NOW, otherwise, here we go again with even more blackmail info. Oh by the by, I am going to combine the two awards lists with the first being about me and maybe the rest being about Cat Daddy. He likes to get his props every now and then, too! BTW, does all this tagging remind anyone else of the game "Truth or Dare" we used to play at slumber parties?

  1. I broke my little finger being chased around the backyard by a bumble bee. I was wearing a swimsuit at the time, fell over the volleyball guards and didn't know it was broken until a week later when the swelling went down. Yes, there were witnesses!
  2. I dislocated my knee while dancing for a dollar at my son's reception. Yes, there were witnesses!
  3. I fainted and fell off the top riser during a choir rehearsal resulting in stitches to my forehead. I still have the scar and yes, there were witnesses!
  4. I wrecked my car in an automatic car wash while trying to exit. Yes, there were witnesses!
  5. While joy riding, I knocked my front tooth loose after jumping off the fender of a car when someone yelled Police. I tried to tell my parents I tripped off a curb, which they actually believed (I wonder why), but later confessed the truth. Yes, there were witnesses!
  6. I fell down a flight of stairs my first day at UNT (in a dress no less) and of course, there were witnesses, all guys!
  7. I can dance with the best of them ( don't count #2), but cannot walk across a room without hurting myself and yes, there are always witnesses!
  8. Cat Daddy was a wonderful dance partner until we said I do... then he did not.
  9. Even though he is 6', five feet of it is torso, but he sits a horse really well. Tall in the saddle!
  10. Except for the first two years we were married, he has lived on the same street all his life. When he was working out of town, I bought the house across from his mom and dad. We have been in the same home for 34 years!

Are you ready to call uncle? OK then, that's enough about me for now. The next time you hear from me I'll have new photos to rock your world! JENN HAS PHOTOS UP!!!

First of all, yay to sweet Bella - you go girl!

Next, I think I've found my long lost sister. Now I can speak freely of all the times I've fallen (off my aunt's front steps, in the grocery store, in the old car port) and hold my head up high! Oh yes, you go girl too, Debbie!

Thank you sweet Jesus! First for all the good news about Ms. Bella and second that you are still alive after all that! Yeah I saw the photo's Jenn has....they are just too cute! I was crying too! Guess it's all those baby hormones going around! I made it through my blog post tonight without crying for the first time in a week! I'm having too much fun...but then you told me it would be this way!
Big hugs...can't wait for you to get your hands on your little Bella...until then Jesus will hold her in His.

So happy for your family and sweet Bella, you all have been through a lot. Thank God the light at the end of the tunnel is here! Now try to stay vertical so you and CD can dance the happy dance for her! (Umm I just realized that sounded kinda bad) As usual you had me in stitches. Hugs, Pam

This was amazingly hysterical!!! You need fall protection and lots of insurance.

I'm so happy about Bella!!!! Wow, sitting in a baby seat and sleeping outside the box in a regular nursery bed - that's HUGE. I can't wait to see her new pictures. Praise God for His handiwork.

Jena Williams, Not So Shabby Interiors said...

Oh, how exciting! The best news I have heard all week! Baby Bella is a "little fighter" just like her MEME! So happy for you and your beautiful family!

janet said...

God IS good! Little Bella! We won't be able to call her that for long...she's showing us! What's with all the witnesses? Girl, you need some privacy!

Garden Antqs Vintage said...

Girl, you never cease to make me laugh. And...I know you posted on my blog where you were going but you know how strange things happen when you are shopping, right? Well, a little birdie told me you were going on a trip. I said I was going to have to sneak in your suitcase... Little Bella is just getting prettier by the day. Can't wait until she comes home.

lorhen82 said...

Debbie dear, though I don't think you getting hurt is funny, your list made me laugh until I cried! This day I dub you Queen Grace!

Thank the good Lord above that little Bella is doing so well...that's the best news! I know you're beside yourself with excitement, and we share in that with you!

Have a great...and safe...Friday! ~Lori

trash talk said...

I really hope y'all enjoyed laughing at my misfortunes and "Grace"! I think I'll install a sound track to my blog...which would you rather hear---"I Fall To Pieces" or "Can't Help Falling in Love"? Did y'all see the photo on Jenn's of Bella's little tears? You will melt!!!
Debbie

bella shabby said...

Hi Debbie, That little Bella is getting So Big. I know she is still amazing her doctors with her miraculous progress. Speaking of miracles - it's a miracle that you are still with us in one piece! Knock on wood - I've never had a broken bone or stitches! xoxo , Sue

donna baker said...

Oh Deb, thank the good Lord for Bella's progress. I can't believe it has happened so fast...and so incredibly well. I love all your foibles; I can so relate. I guess that's why they are all so funny. I love you. PS ~ my daughter that was pregnant about the same length of time as Jenn, is scheduled to deliver Eli June 23rd. Can you believe how early Bella came?

Tootsie said...

Oh Lordy girl- you crack me up! I once drove through the board that comes down at the parking ramp- and broke the windshield in my parents station wagon...and I cut my finger off with a broken Visionware casserole dish in the sink (it's reattached now- thank GOD for red dishtowels or my kids would have freaked out. ) I think you are definitely my soul sister...SURPRISE! Perfect news about Bella...
