Babies are always on the go. Baby Bella is no different. She has a very busy day ahead. Baby Bella says good morning to the little birds that greet her. Baby Bella has a pink balloon, as she lets it go she stretches her arms up, up and up. At the park, Baby Bella bends down to the ground as she watches tiny ants carry a large sandwich away. Baby Bella can paint. She paints with black and with white. Baby Bella can smile when she is happy and frown when she is sad. It’s the end of a very busy day and Baby Bella, goes night, night.
