Okay, Okay so I am posting this on her 10 mos old day but at least I am doing it. She is a crazy doll that Brinlee. She is walking, practically running, plays peek a boo, says all kinds of words. Let me see, she says, uh oh, dad-eee, nate, seth-y, thank you, ouch-eee, dog-eee, and a load of other words I will remember at 2am. She is going up and down the stairs. She has figured out how to open anything with a pop-up lid (like toothpaste, bum creams, etc. She bites, hits, scratches and pulls hair. She is crazy in love with her brothers and begs them with her eyes and hands to pick her up and take her to play with them. She climbs onto things, opens cupboards (broke a pan and a candle yesterday). She loves to be in public. She hates to sleep and will fight and fight (herself) to wake up even though she is so tired. Oh yeah, and she has her Dad-eee wrapped around her little finger. Oh my it is bad. (and sweet too) and I love her to pieces. Funny thing about her penguin. She fell in love with the beanie babies at a store we were in, she just kept hugging them all. I let her pick and although not my choice, she kept picking the penguin. We finally realized she loved it because of a penguin Christmas toy we have that sings songs that she played with a lot at Christmas time. If I am able, I will post a video of her trying to help me hang up clothes. We captured it after watching her do it before and Nate and I thought it was so hilarious.
You know your too fat when your 7 year old (almost) continually makes comments about your weight. Tonight's comment "at least you have big muscles mom". I hate my arms. Here is the darling picture of our family but awful of me to prove I have big muscles right now!
This has had a painful journey, this little itty bitty darling tooth! She is 5 months old now. Brinlee is starting to go up on all fours and either pull herself to standing (if something is close enough and high enough) or launch forward on her face. It is like watching an acrobat. A tumbling princess. She is definitely mobile and can get what she is after. She is amazing!!!! She is wonderful!!! Now if she would just sleep. She is way too busy to sleep. She is always so excited, I think it is all of the entertainment here with these 3 brothers. Noah and Seth ran the jog a thon. Seth ran the whole time. He has been working hard during P.E. to improve his time on the mile. He started at 9 something and has worked his way down to I think 7:20. All 3 boys have enjoyed being on our community swim team and are doing a mini-triathlon on Halloween.
Noah has been working on this baby for weeks and he finally got it out. Funny thing, I think the tooth fairy was so tired/half asleep because he put the money inside Noah's pillowcase. Now Noah is missing his two front teeth. Cutie!
