Brooke's Voice

I know pretty soon Brooklynn will be speaking in real words and it will be so fun. But for now I really like listening to her little "Jibber Jabber". I taped her just talking because I never want to forget the sound of her tiny voice.

Brooklynn's Binkys

So when I was pregnant with Brooklynn I didn't want to buy too many of one thing in case she didn't like it. That was the case with her pacifiers. I bought like one package of all the different kinds, because I didn't know what kind she would like. (Typical first-time Mom?)
So, she ended up loving the Soothie brand that they give you in the hospital. So I went out and bought a ton of them. It would be a crisis if we ever could not find one, right? So after I went out and bought so many of them, opened the packages and sterilized them all....she didn't really like the binkys that much after all. So now what? I guess we are saving them for our next kid. Brooklynn actually likes to give them to me more than use them herself. I think she sees other babies with them now and is interested in them, but she never really took to it. Now we have a game where she takes them all out of her stuffed frog and puts them in her mouth, puts them in my mouth, etc. I have to cry like a baby and say, "Ma ma!" and then she will put it in my mouth. I know, we are strange.

Brooke's New Chair

Thank you, Jamie & Jason, for Brooklynn's new chair! She LOVES it! She gets in and out of it all the time. We're excited to test it out at the beach on Monday! Thanks, Mom & Dad, for bringing it to us.

Sleepy Brooklynn

Today at lunch I got up to get a washcloth to wipe Brooklynn's hands & face and then I saw her starting to fall asleep, and then actually sleep. This was a first for her, falling completely asleep in her high chair. I got her up and she went right to bed! (Well, right after I took some pictures.) Poor Brooklynn.

Brooke's Game Continues...

So we ended up buying a bin just like in Florida for all of Brooklynn's toys. She continues to crawl inside of it and it cracks me up. What a funny baby.

Bye Bye Grandma & Grandpa!

Brooklynn made a nice stinky diaper just in time to say goodbye to my parents.
Thanks again for making the trip out to see us! We had a great time!

Reading with Grandma

Brooklynn constantly wanted to sit on Grandma's lap and she always brought a book with her for her to read. She loves this game. We all get to sneak a lot of cuddle time with her when she sits on your lap for a story.

Eating Out

We went out to Cracker Barrel Sunday morning with everybody. I think it was a party of 23? It was crazy. SO good, though. I need to eat here more often.

We also went out to my favorite Mexican restaurant in Norristown, it's so good. I love their nachos.
Brooke was only using the chips as a spoon to eat more guacamole. She LOVED it.

Brooklynn loved all the food. She is showing off with her spoon skills, eating a roll with a spoon.
Katy & Brooklynn were buddies!
This is Derrin's fiance, Katrina, who we got to meet.
