I have loved having a blog just for Isabella, but it was getting difficult to seperate her adventures from my own, so I've decided to combine all three of my blogs (I know, crazy) into one. I will be using labels to help ease browsing...if all you want to see is our gorgeous daughter.

Photos of our trip to the Bronx Zoo while my mom was visiting. Isabella had a really good time. See more adventures at the zoo here.
Isabella really wanted to hold the ladybug, but we decided to let it live.

Robb's Farm. We enjoyed licking our sweet, creamy cones and being entertained by the silly farm animals.

I never got to finish all my posts on Saturday...It was such a beautiful morning; a bit brisk but very lovely. It had rained a lot during the week so the puddles in Central Park were fantastic. This was Isabella's first experience in puddle playing. As I watched her running through the puddles I tried to remember what it felt like to have water slushing around in my shoes. She seemed more contemplative than ecstatic over the experience.

I'm realizing it is quite impossible to do anything with a toddler around. But I've also been learning that she really likes to help me do things. So with a lot of patience, creativity and redirection we have been working together to make our home wonderful. Here Isabella is helping me make Brian's favorite cookies, oatmeal chocolate chip. Even though we are done with all the measuring and mixing she is signing "more". We'll have to do it again soon, because I really had a great time too.

The Orchid Show is going on at the New York Botanical Gardens right now. One Sunday afternoon we went to enjoy the warmth and greenery of the conservatory. I was looking forward to a peaceful, relaxing environment while gazing at the intricate orchids. Instead we encountered masses of people looking to do the same. We felt like cattle being herded through a tropical world. Although it was beautiful and warm, the closterphobic amount of bodies made it impossible to fully enjoy.
