She LOVES bath time, the other day I was in the tub with her and made the water a little deeper.I kinda just held her head and let her whole body "swim" and she LOVED it! She was kicking like crazy, happy as could be. Then she realized how strong she was and started to get a little scared so I had to hold her again. She is also doing so great at tummy time, she will lie there and play for quite a while. Her head control is already very good. She is still only getting up at night about twice to feed and then goes back to sleep. (with a few exceptions, but no one is perfect.)
Today we had our 1-month Dr. visit. She did great, only cried for a minute when she got her vaccine shot. :( Sure was sad, though! She is 23 1/4 " long (above 95%), 9 lb. 8 oz (50%) and her head circumference is 15" (70%). She is very very long and is already too long for 0-3 month clothes, but they are still too big around the waist. We are just wearing them short. She needs to get used to that anyway.
Pretty soon Grandma and Grandpa Bean are coming out for a visit so they can meet baby Brooke! We are all very excited!

This video we wanted to document her legs kicking away. She always tones it down a little when the camera comes out, but it's pretty good. (This is mostly proof of how much it hurt when I was pregnant). Another bonus is that you can here her "Zoolander; I've got the Black Lung" cry.
This video you can't really see anything, but you can hear her cute sleeping squeaky noises. She usually does them even louder now, but they are so cute!
Here is her getting pretty good at tummy time. She was one week old in this video; you should see her now! She looks like she can almost turn over. Not quite, though.

My family came out to see Brooklynn when she was two weeks old. They drove all the way from Indiana and Ohio! We had a great time! They were able to bond with their neice and cousin, they helped me cook and clean and I was able to get some things done while they held her. We even had time to go to Valley Forge Park and to their hotel pool for some swimming. (Except Brooke and I did not get in the pool.) Thanks so much for coming out and for everything you did to help out! We miss you already and Brooke can hardly wait to see you all again!
