Swimsuit Dressup

Much to Braelyns dismay, I had to try on the swimsuit my sis-in-law gave us from her girls! We haven't gone for a dip yet, but I couldn't resist trying the whole outfit on her! She handled the pictures okay, but didn't really like putting it on. She's all ready for the summer now I guess, although she doesn't even know what's coming with these Arizona summers! I must say that I'm not ready at all for the 115 temps to come, but with it hitting triple digits just last week, I know it's not far away :<>

I'm finally getting some of the new pictures of Braelyn and us up!! We had them done about a month ago, and they are adorable. Our friend Raelynn did them(, and did an awesome job!!! I was gonna put up more, but our computer wasn't letting me put more up for some reason. Enjoy!

Our little Princess has a Tooth!

It's official: Braelyn cut her first tooth!!! I knew it was coming and over night it cut through! It makes her seem like such a big girl!!! I also had to take a pic of her in her "princess" dress she wore Sunday. It's adorable, however there are these glitter dots all over the pink part of the dress, and we were all covered in it!!!! It's still cute though!
Here's the tooth! She was quite reluctent to let me get a picture, but I insisted! :>

We are triatheletes.....kinda!!!

Yesterday, Britton, Cooper(his brother), Jay(business partner/friend), and I did a mini-sprint triathlon in Litchfield park!!! Crazy, but really fun! I'm training for an all women sprint triathlon in May, so it was nice to kinda get a feel for how it will be! It was hard, but we are all proud of ourselves for finishing!!! We had to do a 300 meter swim, 8.4 mile bike, and a 2 mile run...whew!!! Anyway here are a couple pics of us afterwards!

Braelyn also came to show her support! This is her with her cousin Ellie

Happy Easter!

We hope everyone had a good Easter! Ours was really nice. We got up, had breakfast, went to church (at 2pm...yucky time), and then had a super yummy dinner with Cooper and Ahlena, our only family here! :> It was fun to put the cute bunny ears on Braelyn (thanks Grandma Black), and get a cute Easter dress, although next years will be more eventful cause she'll be able to walk around for an egg hunt!! I can't belive how fast time is moving, and how big Braelyn is getting!!! We love her soooooo much, and are so grateful for having her in our lives....she was worth the wait!!! Here's our girl:

Big girl bath :>

So, since Braelyn has been sitting up so well, I thought we'd try taking a bath in the big tub. She did pretty well, although we are in desparate need of some tubby toys!!! She only slipped a couple times, and had a very quick face plant (she didn't like that at all!), but I caught her fast! I couldn't resist taking some pictures to document it!

Outside in the Spring

The weather has been absolutely beautiful here lately, so it's been fun to hang out outside a little bit with the babe! That way she'll know what the ouside looks like before it gets unbearable!!! While we were hanging out in the grass I just had to take some pictures of our girl. I think this blog should now just be called Braelyns blog cause she's totally taken it over!!! :> She looks so solomn in all her pictures, but I swear she really does smile!!! LOL She gets pretty facinated with what I'm doing and so she just stares!! She's such a great girl!
