We have been busy over the last few weeks preparing for Baby Smith #2 to arrive!!  Isabelle is very excited about being a big sister.  She makes sure to feed him breakfast in the morning (usually one of her pretend cupcakes) and gives him lots of hugs and kisses.  She has recently started taking care of her "babies" by tucking them in at night and putting diapers on them.  

Isabelle loves playing with her kitchen, reading books, coloring, watching Daniel Tiger and Disney movies, and playing with her fishing game.  She can count to 5 (usually) and knows most of her colors.  Isabelle learning new words every day, but still not a lot of talking yet.  We also had some surprisingly nice days outside lately and made a few trips to the zoo and archery range/park.

Look who's two today!!!

We had a pretty quiet birthday this year.  Isabelle celebrated at Grandma and Gido's house on Saturday with Uncle Matt and Katrina (and Uncle Mike on Google chat) and then at Grandma and Grandpa's house with Aunt Amber.  She was very excited to have cake twice in one day!!  Some of her favorite presents included toy food and cupcakes for her kitchen, a talking tea set, books, and her favorite disney DVDs.

Merry Christmas From the Smith Family!!

And here is a few of Isabelle from our Christmas Card pictures:


Highlights of this year's Christmas include watching the Grinch several times a day, Harry the Bunny, musical instruments, and a kitchen playset with new food.  We had a pretty quiet Christmas this year.  We went to my parents with the Klowak's on the 23rd and then spent Christmas Eve with DJ's family.  We also made Christmas tree waffles on Christmas day and read lots of our favorite Christmas books.

And here is our family Christmas ornament this year:

Isabelle is having lots of fun in the snow this winter.  She loves sledding and having hot chocolate afterwards!!  We've been trying to find things to do with the cold weather - making gingerbread houses at the library, going to the Germantown Christmas festival, baking Christmas cookies and lots of coloring and watching Disney movies.  Her current favorites are Monsters, Inc., Brave, and Frozen.
