Happy Easter

Well, this weekend has been kind of eventful. We felt Brooklyn's first tooth coming in AND she started crawling. She is just growing up too fast. The Easter bunny came and visited our house and Brooklyn crawled all around finding her eggs. I of course had to help her a little bit. We love the holidays so much more now with our little girl! Happy Easter everyone!

Photo Shoot With Lisa

Here are some pics that Chris' Aunt Lisa took of Brooklyn. She will be 8 months on the 31st. ALMOST crawling...I am not sure if that is a good thing or a bad. We are having trouble at nights. At first she was such a good sleeper. I would wrap her up in this thing called snuggle me(or baby straight jacket) and she would sleep the whole night long. Well she has about outgrown that and now her hands are always waving and waking her up....Last night was the first night i just let her cry. It was hard and I went in there a few times to try to teach her to find her binkie on her own, but she did fall asleep on her own eventually...I hope she learns soon! Any suggestions? Still no teeth...but as cute as ever! Her hair grows the longest on top and that is why she is sporting the cupie doll hair do! We love our baby and she is always so happy during the day...Couldn't ask for a better girl! WE are so excited that it is getting warmer here and cant wait to play outside everyday!

Sunday, March 7, 2010 of our house!

The office...Finally in its own room and not combined with like 3 other things! We have kinda decorated this in a golf theme, but it still has a ways to go!
The kitchen...YAY more cabinet and counter space!
The family room.
The drapes I made for the living room...I am so proud of them!
The living room
This is the master bathroom. We have 2 walk in closets! Its the best!
Brooklyns Room... Chris' dad made the vinyl lettering. She really is a princess!
Brooklyn's room
Guest Bedroom...Whoever wants to come stay with us can!
Brooklyn's Bathroom. Isn't she spoiled? A bathroom all to herself. All we do in there is give her baths!
So we have been in our house for a month now. We love it so much. It is so much more convenient and we love our new neighborhood. The ward is great, although we still miss our old one. It is so nice to actually have room for everything instead of cramming the closets full.
We would love come on over! We are right off the Thanksgiving point exit, so you dont have to drive clear out in the middle of no where as my brother would say!

So the past couple nights have been RESTless. Brooklyn has been sick. She has had a fever and a way stuffy nose and seems to have had a little trouble breathing. At first we thought she may be teething because she started drooling a ton. We thought she drooled a lot before, but now she can completely soak her shirt within a couple of minutes. I cant really feel a tooth coming in but that doesnt mean its not there i guess. We took her to the DR. and she said her lungs sound fine but to watch her. Today she seems to be doing better so hopefully this will end soon so we can all have a full nights sleep again. Poor girl...shes such a trooper!

A little peice of summer!

We recently got a pass to the Lehi Legacy Center. This will get us through that winter slump where we feel like we have nothing to do and just want to go crazy! Brooklyn loved swimming when we took her, so I think we will be going a lot to get out of the house a get some physical activity going. If any of you ever want to come with us we would love it!

I have not blogged FOREVER! Sorry about that. We had a fabulous Christmas. It is so much more fun having Brooklyn around, even though she has no idea what is going on. She got toys galore from the grandparents that we have no where to put right now. Chris and I did not do too much for eachother because we are saving for our house, which if everything goes as planned we will close on it Feb. 2nd! YAY! We are so grateful for all we were blessed with this past year! There have been a lot of changes with a new baby and moving! I am most grateful for Chris for being the best husband in the world and for being an awesome dad! Here are some pictures of the holidays!
