Izabelle’s New Grin

Izabelle was so excited to get her braces on last June. She’s not as excited these days…brushing, rubber bands, tightening, etc.

But from my point of view, her braces are AMAZING! Izabelle has only had her braces on for a little over a month and her smile has already changed!

I love this girl! I was born to be her mom. Izabelle is such a unique, spunky, creative, witty and beautiful girl.

Lately, Izabelle has been my little shadow. She walks with me, cooks with me, crafts with me…best of all: she talks to me…I mean really talks to me. She tells me about her everyday comings and goings, about what’s annoying her at the moment, she shares her ideas and she tells me about her dreams.

It is my wish that her and I stay close.

I know the day will come when she won’t want to spend so much time with me…when silly best friends and teenage boys enter the picture…but for now, I am loving every minute spent with her.

xoxo, Christie

    I’m sure the tightening is painful, but her teeth look so much better already. It’s awesome that you’re able to do so much together. It’s the stuff memories are made of.

    Loving all the flowers in the layout!

    Ah yes, the fun times with braces, lol, but she’ll get used to the routine and her smile will be that much more brilliant. The layout is lovely and here’s to wishing you stay close forever!

    I think it’s such a blessing that you and Izabelle have such a beautiful relationship. My mom and I are really close, and it’s always nice to see others getting to experience that special mother/daughter bond. Congrats to Izabelle too on her braces! She’s one of the few that can make braces look cool 🙂
