You've Come A Long Way Baby!

Just a reminder of where you were just a few months ago, but Baby Bella, look at you now!Through God's grace, you are as fat as the town dog and twice as pretty as any Miss America!
I look forward to calling you Madame President some day! You are my little Yankee Doodle Dandette.
I hope everyone enjoyed the 4th...I know we sure did! (Isn't she just tutu precious for words...all 6 lbs. and 15 oz. of her?)

Look at you getting all festive with your independence banner. I love it. And look at the precious bundle of love. I'm so glad to hear she's doing well, Debbie. She's just beautiful...just like you.

I know she's the light of your life. And she's a fighter that's for sure. As always, I will remember her in my prayers. Hope you have a great week!

She sure looks healthy. Will she be coming home soon?

She is just a little doll! Did someone say that she might be a little spoiled when she gets home? But then, she will certainly deserve it. Love the pictures of her. Keep them coming.

That lil' princess is certainly the apple of Granny and Grampy's eye, I can't believe how she's grown...nothin' like being a Grandparent...now I have to chase those sweet cheeks for a kiss...that is unless I have cash in hand!

Prrrrrrrrrrr...proud to be a Cat Daddy Kitten!!!

She has her grandma's pretty face and flare for fashion, I see. Wonderful, Debbie, so happy for you all.
