that FACE


Taking a cue from Michelle... I was already feeling a little cheered up by my little Bella Bean and thought about posting it... then I read Shell's post today and I knew I had to. For obvious reasons, Michelle's post struck a chord with me, and made me do something I rarely seem to do these days-cry a bit. I too am so lucky to have my little girl. Anyone who has spent time around her has probably noticed, she is such a sweet girl! I don't know where she got her sweet and easy-going personality, but she is just great! As Michelle noticed yesterday when we were over, Bella just kind of anticipates being happy. I was crawling around after Bella and playing with her. I called her name, and before she even turned around to see me on the floor with her, she started smiling in anticipation. She has this great wide open, mouth-agape smile that just makes you smile along with her. She is such a sweet and good girl and I have a lot to be thankful for and learn from my two little girls. One is the example of perfection and gives me something (someone)to work towards in the world to come, and one is a happy, shining example of why I am still here for now.

Another great photo Jessie, so cute. She is a cutie, and it was a treat watching her with Eva yesterday. They are so lucky to have each other and grow up together as cute cousins. I'm glad you're feeling a bit better and that you have this sweet baby to love.

You totally gave her the right name. She is soooo beautiful!

This made me cry a bit, too. I love what you said about your two little girls at the end. I hope beautiful Bella always anticipates being happy and can keep that outlook throughout her life. Because of my struggles with depression and pessimism, that is what I wish for all of my children. (So far, it's looking good for Lucas!)

So sorry to hear that you have been feeling sad. I feel bad for both you and Michelle. What a stuggle! Everytime I see a picture of Bella, it makes me laugh inside! She is such a cutie! What a personality. Looking to the four of you coming to visit.

Your way of finding the truly happy things in life is a true gift. It's sad but we don't always see what's right in front of our face and I think that being truly happy is 1) realizing that our Heavenly Father loves us and 2) finding joy in the minutia of everyday life. You're an inspiration to me Jessie and I admire your inner strength. And that picture of Bella is SO cute! We miss her (and you and Timm of course)!

Bella is a VERY cute little girl! I love all the pictures you post! (the one of her in the cart at the grocery store awhile back was really good) Also, you have so many interesting things to say. You make being a stay at home mom sound really exciting! :) Anyway, I don't get on often but just wanted you to know that every now and then, I enjoy reading your blogs and seeing the pictures you post!

Bella's face makes my smile every time I see it! I'm so glad I captured her with my camera phone, so that every time I open my phone my day is brightened.

Bella is seriously a cutie and I swear she gets cuter every time I see a pic of her. I need to come and see her in action! I am sorry you have been down lately and feel bad you have to struggle with depression, how hard! Luckily you have your Bella Bean to make you smile in spite of how you may be feeling.
