Love Bug

Being a mom has been the the most amazing experience...and it has only been 4 1/2 months. It makes me think about life in a completely different way. For Valentine's Day this year I thought about what traditions I want my children to remember. Some of those traditions include, Valentine's jammies, a card, a small meaningful gift with heart-shaped pancakes for breakfast, and something cute for lunch and dinner... I haven't decided what yet (suggestions welcomed!)which is ok because Brooke is still too little to even know this day is different than any other. Here are some pictures of her first Valentine's Day!

This is Max. He is Brooke's "boyfriend" they are in daycare together and they really like to hold hands! This is not a posed picture.

4 months

Well, I know I haven't posted much lately...mostly because this month has been difficult...I went back to work and Brooke went to daycare. Brooke has been sleeping through the night since she was 8 weeks old and decided to stop the second day of daycare...which has made the whole transition that much harder. I always thought that I would go back to work after I had kids, but I think by the time Brooke was 2 weeks old I was already trying to calculate if I could stay home with her. Right now we know it's not a posibility, but maybe someday... I do have to say that I am so thankful that, if Brooke has to be in daycare, she is so close to me. I get to go feed her on my breaks and go visit when I need mommy time since she is on the same campus and only a few yards from my office. And I do really like my job...without those 2 things it would be miserable!

Brooke is now 4 months (and 2 weeks) old. She is so much fun right now. She laughs, rolls over, and tries so hard to talk and sit-up. I am loving each new thing she does! She is 26 in long and is in the 93 percentile and 14 lbs 4oz and in the 62 percentile.

We feel so blessed that God has given her to us.

After we picked her up...She really had a great day but this picture is too funny!
