New Stuff

Not a whole lot has been going on lately, but there have been a few fun things. A few days ago I gave Braelyn her first hair trim....I don't say "haircut" it was merely a trim of only the back! She was starting to have a mullet, and that's just something I couldn't do!!! She did awesome too! I probably cut off a good 1/2 inch of hair!!! It looks super cute if I don't say so myself! Now it will be much more even for the "grow out" phase! Here are a few shots.....



Braelyn pulling her fake laugh face! She cracks me up....she does this fake laugh all the time, and it is just the cutest thing ever!

About a week ago was my niece, Zoe's, birthday, so we went with them to celebrate at Peter Piper Pizza! It was super fun! We sat Braelyn on a few of the little rides there, and she seemed to really like it! It's crazy how big she looks on all of them! She's not my "baby" anymore...*sniff, sniff*




Last but not least.....just tonight as I was brushing her teeth, I got a flash of something white on her gums! It's a molar....but the story doesn't end there! I was so surprised, that I check all the rest of her gums too....Don't worry that she has three molars coming through!!!! I kinda feel bad that I didn't know before now, but she NEVER lets me get a good look in there without freaking out, PLUS she really hasn't been that cranky...good for me! Anyways, I think that's about all for now!

Love this Girl!

I can't believe my baby, *sniff*, is one already!!! Although she's probably not an official "baby", she'll always be that to me! I think she's a toddler now, which is super fun, but where did the time go?!
An update on her stats at her last doctor appointment are as follows: 20.9 lbs, and 29.5 inches long. The Dr. said she's in the 40th percentile for weight, and the 70th for height! She is nice and healthy for the most part. We did find out about a week or so ago that she has anemia :<>
She is so much fun in this stage...I love it!!! She's walking all over the place, loves to try all the food we eat, a.k.a. a moocher, & trying to say new words. When music comes on the TV or the radio she stops, looks, and almost immediately starts dancing to the beat!!!
CHEESE!!!


I had to sneak this video from around the corner of the couch. She got a musical birthday card from her cousins, and she figured out how to work it...so funny! Check it out!

*Birthday Girl*

Well, our sweet baby girl turned the big 1 on Saturday the 5th!!! The day started out by waking her up at 5am to take her over to her cousins house.....yeah I'm not kidding! Britton and I did a triathlon sprint early that morning! I wished it wasn't on her birthday, but it turned out to be ok! She just loves playing with her cousins...they even played in the rain a little! These are the first pics of the birthday girl after we got home....
This is one of her most favorite past times although she's not allowed to do it for very long...playing with the blinds!
We let her open her first present from us that morning...so fun!

And then she passed out....it had already been a long day!!


Your Invited.......


I was so excited and proud of this cake! It turned out just the way I wanted it too! It was alot of work, but totally worth it and sooo fun!!!
(the color is a little off in the pic cause it's in the fridge)

I think she liked it too!

"It's my party...and I'll cry if I want to!!!!"
The Big Birthday Girl!

Braelyn and her cousin Ellie

She didn't have as much fun opening all the presents, thus the reason for the binky! Thank you so, so much to our friends and family for all the awesome gifts...she really does love them!




I made her very own cupcake ladybug, and here she is giving it the once over!
And she's off...
In the act..

The ending result...
