Happy little helper, friends and followers

I truly am blessed to have such a happy little baby. Isabelle is always full of smiles, and she very rarely cries. As long as she gets to hang out near momma, she's pretty content.

I was emptying the dishwasher yesterday and I sent her up on the counter to supervise my work.
I've got my eye on you, mama. 
Don't worry...I never left her alone for even a moment. 
If you've never used a bumbo, they're very sturdy, and despite even the most frantic 
movements by baby, they don't tip or move around at all.

Isabelle knew I was working really hard at unloading the dishwasher and I think she wanted to cheer me on. 

After a few minutes, she realized that there were some spoons that would make terrific toys within her reach. 
look what I found!!

How big are you, Isabelle? 
I'm THIS big!

Also, Isabelle and I were lucky enough to have a few visitors yesterday. My friend Tracy and her son, Landon, came over for a few hours. Tracy and I have been friends since high school, but she lives about 3 hours away, so I don't get to see her nearly as often as I'd like. In fact, this was the first time I've seen her since little Landon was born. It was so great to get to meet him. He's just a few weeks younger than Isabelle is.
We spent most of the morning chatting and catching up, and I didn't get as many pictures as I would have liked. In fact, I'm disappointed I didn't think to take one of Tracy and Landon together. Of course, we did manage to take one of our kiddos together though. 

Aren't they cute? 
I think they were overwhelmed by two mommies trying to take pictures at the same time :)

In other news, I updated my Recipes page today. Feel free to click there anytime you need some dinner or dessert ideas. I hope to add to it more frequently...I've sort of been making the same things lately. Tonight we're having chili for dinner...nothing exciting. 

Lastly, did you think I was kidding when I said that my husband watches my followers? In fact, lately it's a big contest to see who notices any new followers first. Allow me to submit for you some visual evidence:

  11. Yay Mommy! Isabelle is adorable! It's cute seeing her in different places in her bumbo so she can always be part of the action!

  12. I wish I could still use my Bumbo! Faith has learned out to flip it (yeah, I have no idea how she does that), so I can't use it anymore. Isabelle sure looks sweet sitting there watching you work :)

    Maybe I need to add the "follow" box to my blog. I still only have 26 followers. My friends won't follow me. They say they don't know how. Haha :-)

    My husband never goes anywhere near a computer, so he doesn't keep up with my blog. But, I share exciting blog news with him and have him read posts now and then.

  19. She is SO adorable! I love how excited she looks.
    And your husband is too funny girl!

  20. Thanks for stopping by my place! Your girls are adorable!

  21. Cute! I like the idea of putting the Bumbo up high in your kitchen so she can see everything you're doing. My baby is a few months younger than yours, but she's such a happy and smiley baby too, especially when she's interacting with people. Isn't it great to have happy babies!!!
