I know I have posted a different video of Isabelle dancing but this one is a really good video. This was the day we had her birthday party so she really was showing off for everyone who was at her party. She liked all the attention so she would do it more to get all the laughs from everyone. It was quite hilarious.

Isabelle got a really fun rocking horse from her aunt and uncle last Christmas and she has really been enjoying it. She has learnt how to make the horse make noise and how to sit on the horse and rock it. it is also one of the words she understand, when you say where is your horsie she will always look around the room and then point at it where ever it is.
We have had so many Christmas outfits for this year that we have been putting them on Isabelle since the last weekend in November I think. This little outfit came with a hat and we didn't think she would wear the hat because she isn't too fond of hats. But to our surprise she wore it at home during sunday school and half way through church before talking it off. We were so impressed. The video was mean to be a picture but the camera was on the wrong mode so I decided to post the video anyways. Sorry that is it sideways, you can't turn it.
One evening Isabelle came out of her room with one of her pajama shirts and then she sat on the living room floor and tried to put the shirt on to her foot for a good 5 minutes. She was quite determined that she was going to get it on and seems to not want to give up until she got it. It was quite amusing.
Isabelle has been doing really good with her walking lately. She tends to only walk at home and not when we are out at other people's house. It almost seems like the doesn't want to make a fool out of herself in front of others. LOL At home most of the time if she falls down she will get right back up and continue to walk where she was headed. She is also growing her vocabulary quite fast. I think she has 5 words now. Her first word was Yes then This. She would say this to everything like she was wanting to know what it was. she now also says Hi, Ball and Bye Bye. and is getting close to Hat, baby and belly.

Isabelle normally won't sit still for you if you want to read her a book but if she finds one on the floor, which there are many around, she will sit there and flip through the pages and might bring one to you ever so often and actually want you to read it to her. She is becoming quite the little carachter and is so much fun.
We have been trying to get in to a routine with brushing Isabelle's teeth before bed time. She has done really good so far. She doesn't mind having the brush in her mouth. It is funny the that she puts her toothbrush under the faucet and wants to put water on it. I don't think she has seen us brush our teeth very often maybe on Sunday mornings before church. Oh well it is really cute. The other day she got in to her diaper bag and the one thing she had pulled out was her toothbrush and she was brushing away. I hope that that is a sign that teeth brushing won't been an issue in the future if we keep it up.
The other day I had Isabelle's booster chair out becuase I was watching another little kid and had given a snack to Isabelle in it. We just left it on the floor and for the last few days she has played with it more than she has played with her toys. She does like to try and stand in it but she has been listening really well when I tell her to sit on her bum. we moved it to the living room so that if she tips it and falls it is a little bit of a softer landing and she has done that a few times

We helped tim's parents pack up some of there house a few weekends ago. I was helping in the garden and tim was helping take boxes from the house to the garage. Isabelle woke up from her nap and we were both busy so this is where Tim put her. She enjoyed it for quite awhile before getting bored of it. I have to admit that she looked pretty cute in that box. I am so glad that we have such a content daughter and that she can have fun in a cardboard box.

Isabelle has now figured out how to get the person who is giving her a bath soaked. She has learned to splash very well. She doesn't care if she gets water in her face, which is good. She likes her bath as long as it is warm. We took her to try a friends pool yesterday and she hated it. I think the reason she didnt' like it was because the water was cold. the day after tim gave her a bath and he started it out cool and she screamed until he made it warm. oh well we will have to keep trying the pool. maybe it will be good enough once the sun has warmed it up a bit.
We were at Tim's parents house about a month ago and Grandma had a doll that blinked and showed it to Izzy and she went crazy for the doll. She was waving her arms like crazy and was squealing quite loudly. She was so excited to see this little doll. It was really cute and I am sad I didn't think to get my camera out and tape it. Grandma found a little doll at a garage sale a few weeks back so now Izzy has this little doll and she really likes this one too.
Isabelle so far likes other little kids, they don't have to be paying any attention to her the just need to be close enough for her to see them. In Sunday school other little kids could come and steal a toy away from her and she wouldn't care, she would just smile and laugh at the little kid. We had the little kids sing a few songs in Church awhile back and she was so excited she again squealed and waved her arms. I hope she stays this way, liking other kids, it's really cute so far.
The last few days Isabelle has decided that she doesn't want to nap in the evening but she definatley still needs to, if she doesn't she is tried by 7 pm. I would put her to bed at 7 but then she wasn't to get up at 7 and I don't. we will see what happens. Today she was nice enough to actually nap this evening

On july 4th Isabelle started to move around other then rolling. She isn't doing the normal crawl yet but she is doing an army crawl where she puts her knees up under her tummy and pulls herself with her arms. It is fun and hopefully she will learn how to crawl soon. even though that means I will have to watch her way more carefully, but it will be fun.

Isabelle One Day Old
Isabelle One Month Old
Isabelle Two Months Old
(we didn't get a good one because she had the flu)
Isabelle Three Months Old
Isabelle Four Months Old
My Little Girl has grown so much, it's hard to believe that she has only been around for four months. It feels like a lot longer. She is still doing really well, very content and happy.

Quite awhile ago we taught Isabelle how to make this noise with her tounge and lips. She was doing really well and then we couldn't get her to do it for quite awhile. Now she is doing it again. It almost seems like she does it to show off.
One day Mark and Helen babysat Izzy for us and I guess Mark was doing that to her and she was copying him and Mark got all excited that she was copying him, much to his suprise he did not know that she already knew how to do that.
There just happened to be a laundy basket in the living room so we propped Izzy up in it and Dad had the great idea that it would be fun to take her for a ride around the kitchen. I don't think she knew what to think, she might enjoy it more once she gets older.

Christmas at Grandma and Grandpa Thiessen's
First Time in her Tinkerbell outfit
Wearing her Bella Bunny
Since we have had her at home she has been a great baby. She rarely cries and if she does it normally means that she is either hungry or sleepy. She has been a really good sleeper and has been sleeping thru the night since she was a month old and before that she would maybe wake up twice in the night to eat. During the day she will put herself to sleep while she is in her play yard. She started to smile the day before she turned a month, she has been talking for quite awhile now and it seems like she is going to laugh soon. She likes looking at herself in the mirror and enjoys it when we read books to her. She just started to hold on to toys.
Isabelle just got her first set of shots last week and she did pretty good. She still has a click in her hip but we are double diapering her to help that go away. So far she is a really good traveler, we took our first trip with her at 3 weeks old. We went up to Niapwin for Alumni weekend and for her to meet uncle Matthew for the first time. She traveled really well. On the way home we were 15 minutes away from home and she had had enough. She cried for a bit but once we took her out of her car seat for a few minutes she was good. We have also now traveled out to Saskatoon for Christmas and she did good then too. While we were in Saskatoon for Christmas Isabelle got sick. She threw up 3 times, twice on some one. She had a stuffy nose but was good otherwise. You could tell she was sick because she wasn't herself, she was whinny and wanted to be held. Which was good because there were lots of people who wanted to hold her.
Anyways that is a little bit of an update on our family since we became a family of 3.
