She Says

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.)

adorable! i was counseling jack on how to deal with disappointment the other day. i probably said something like "there will be disappointments in your life, and you have to move on. don't let it ruin your day." and he said, "You're sounding like a Hippie Guru to me..."

The personal space one made me laugh out loud. And I love the "let's get one thing straight." That girl is not lacking in personality!

I was laughing so much Josh called in from the other room wondering about the hilarity. Oh, Izzy.

Great advice from one so young. My favorite, however, is the Izzy/Bella comment, "Let's get one thing straight. . ." Too funny! Love her--love you.

The personal space- hilarious! I call it my zone and I sometimes hear them telling each other "You are in my zone!"
