New words

Just yesterday, Brody learned some new words.

Baby, diaper and his most favorite new word


He has always loved chasing our kitty around

and giggling because she runs from him terrified

But there is an added excitment for him now that he can say her name.

All day yesterday he ran around YELLING coco, followed by a huge grin on his face....

he is so proud of himself when he learns new things.

Happy Happy Birthday to ME!!!

My mom threw Chelsea D and me a splended birthday party last Sunday.

Chelsea's Birthday is the 8th and mine is the 21st so its always fun to have a joint party. Especially one that is fit for a queen...we had banners, boas, and even crowns!!! Our cake was delicious and the presents were great.

Thank you Thank you THank you mom and dad for always celebrating us and loving us!!!



Our little Brooklyn got her ears pierced on Friday.

She did so so so good. I wanted to get them done while she is young so she wouldn't remember the pain, I've heard it is a bit tramatizing when they get older. She only cried when the needle went in her ear, then she was calm as could be. I was shocked that she did so well. I have quite a brave little girl.

She looks darling with her little bling bling. :)

2 months

Having you in our life has been such a blessing. You are sweet and lovable beyond words and bring such a great spirit into our home. You love looking at everything and taking in the world around you. You could stare at the lights in our house all day, while you look at them your little legs get kicking and you smile with such excitment. You love to watch what Brody is doing, your eyes wonder around following him as he runs about, soon enough you will be joining him, running and giggling behind him. But for now, please stay little and cuddly for momma to snuggle. We love you little princess and love everything about having a girl, especially one that is as beautiful and sweet as you.

18 months

Brody you have turned into such a little boy the last couple of months,
you are into everything and climbing on just about anything.

You are my little buddy who loves to be played with. If I am busy doing dishes or making dinner, I can always count on you to find me and push with all your might against the front of my legs until I will stop what I am doing and hold you. I love that I am special to you, I know that one day you will be grown and not long for the affection that you want now. That is why I always have to remind myself that the house work can wait, you can't, as I have already found out.....time goes by too quickly. My baby is not a baby anymore, you are a big boy and learning so many things everyday. Some of things you love right now are:

-Talking- you have your own little chinese language that you chat all day long. You must say some pretty funny things because you laugh at yourself and think that you are so funny. Some of the words you are good at and we can understand; daddy, mama, ball, shoes, sponge bob, on, more, done, and all the sounds of the letters.

-Shoes- you are always putting mine and daddy's shoes on and walking around the house. You also get into your shoe drawer in your room and get them all out to look at and try on. The first thing you say to anyone that comes up to you is "shooos", it cracks me up every time. :)

-Balls- Anytime you see anything round even if it is an orange, you say "ball" and see if it will bounce. Your basketball is your favorite thing. Last night Daddy put you to bed with it and when I went in to check on you, you were cuddled up to it so tightly with your arm around it. So darling!

-Making messes- You are my little tornado. I don't think you do it on purpose, you are just this little explorer that wants to see and touch and throw everything. I seriously clean up 700 times a day, but you are well worth it.

I love you my little man!!!! Try to not grow so fast.
