I was trying to get Bella to try a bite of clementine, and she exclaimed 'No! It's hideous and gross!' (After which she ate two clementines.)
I was looking at some photos of my grandma and I got a little teary, explaining to Bella that I missed her. She reminded me I would see her again and I complained that it wouldn't be for long time. After some thought Bella said 'Well.... I think the best thing you can do is... Wait until you die.' Right then.
Ever since 'Bella' or 'Isabella' made it to the number one girl's name we've been trying to convince Bella to let us call her 'Izzy' instead, to no avail. One day Timm was calling her 'Izzy' and "Busy Izzy' and 'Belle.' She strode over and stated with authority: "Let's get one thing straight. When you call me 'Izzy', I am not listening to you. But if you call me 'Bella', I'll do whatever you ask.'
We were watching Finding Nemo in the car, and it was the part when all the baby sea turtles were jumping all over Marlin. Bella asked, 'Why aren't they giving him any personal space?' (She got that from me, insisting that she give me some personal space during a moment of extreme smotherhood.)
