Stella Times…44 Weeks

Dear Stells,

Laughing SO hard at Nana Joan this morning! Check out those top 2 teeth that came in last Friday!

This week you have been cracking us up by mimicking everything we do. The best is when we run our finger over our lips and make a bwub-a-bwub-a sound and you do it right back at us! I haven’t been able to get it on video yet, but I’m sure trying! You spend the majority of your days giggling and laughing – we love that you are such a happy girl. πŸ™‚

Last weekend we took a little road trip (3.25 hrs) to go visit some friends and have a girls weekend. You had such a great time with Aurora – it was fun to watch the two of you interact! She is almost exactly two years older than you. It’s hard for me to believe you’ll be running around like her soon enough!

Hanging out at the pumpkin patch with your buddy, Aurora!

Love you two. πŸ™‚

Come Monday it was back to reality – that means work for me, and daycare for you. Thankfully Miss Jen sends me pictures of you all the time, which I absolutely love! Here you are enjoying some spaghetti and cottage cheese at lunch. You are such a goofball. πŸ™‚

What kid doesn’t like spaghetti?! πŸ™‚ Your daycare lady strips you down to feed you lunch, which cracks me up. We’ve started doing that too!

Wednesdays are my day off, so you and I usually spend it hanging out and playing at the house as much as possible. The chair below was built by your Daddy’s friend, Trevor, and you thought it was hysterical when I set you on it. You are getting so grown up!

Loving the chair that your Daddy’s friend Trevor built for you!

Later in the afternoon, I decided to dress you up in a silly/fun girlie outfit and send the text to your Auntie Emma. She asked if they made that skirt in HER size! LOL

Tolerating the crazy outfits I dress you up in. πŸ™‚

We also had a little play date with your friend Liam, yesterday. He is a few months younger than you, but he is crawling already, so it was hecticΒ takingΒ care of both of you!! Luckily you two have a lot of fun together.

Playing some music with your buddy Liam!

You light up our lives, little girl.


  1. Just seeing her laugh captured just makes anyone want to smile. Two crawling babies I bet they had you beat at the end of the day. Love that spaghetti face!

    We STILL strip Gracie down for certain meals πŸ™‚

  3. I could not stop smiling the whole way through this post!!! I love her smiles and giggly faces! So fun that she has started copying everything you do. She is such a gorgeous little gal. Love her fancy girly outfit! πŸ™‚

  4. She sure is one happy child.

  5. Wow! My first thought was “Stella’s got TEETH!!!” I felt like I had missed some huge milestone. And then you said they just came in on Friday and just wow…that happened fast. I love her expression in her weekly pic. That is one happy baby. And her laughter on the wooden chair is so, so cute and funny. Looks like her moms smile.

    Aurora is SO stinkin’ cute too! Does her mommy have a blog we can follow her too? πŸ™‚ Her and Stells are darling together!

    1. LOL, yeah, she got the bottom two a month or two ago, but the top two just poked through on Friday and Saturday. It changes their expressions so much when it’s not just gums anymore!

      Aurora’s Mommy is one of my very few IRL friends (our husbands went to high school together and we got married on back to back weekends) who knows about and follows this blog. She also has some IF issues, though she has never blogged about them. Keep her in your thoughts and prayers as they go through a tumultuous journey for #2….

  6. I love all of these pumpkin patch shots! What a great tradition!

  7. Love the new teeth! Lexi just got her top two in over the weekend as well! So fun πŸ™‚ The pictures of her laughing are precious – such a happy girl!!

  8. that laugh…..and that smile. They just get me every.single.time.

  9. She even looks adorable mid laugh. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  10. Stella is starting to look so grown up! I would not have recognized her in that picture of her in the chair. Holy smokes!

    She sure enjoys her little friends!

  11. I’m impressed by every week that you keep these updates up. What an amazing thing for Stella to have someday! I love her huge grin and her expressive eyes in these pictures!

  12. Happy babies are the best!!! I love all the pics of her – so photogenic!

  13. Love that pic of her on the bale of straw. She’s all like “look at me I’m on a freaking bale of straw!”
