Tim and I have been together for over 6 1/2 years (dating & married). I love him more now than ever. One of the reasons I love him even more is how he is with our daughter.
When I found out I was pregnant, I immediately began daydreaming of having a little boy. In my mind I had already pictured Tim and our son playing catch in the yard. I had thought about colors that I would want in a nursery for a boy... I was excited to have a little "Tim". So when the ultrasound technician told us that we were having a girl, my daydreaming changed from thoughts of blue to thoughts of pink...and honestly, now having a girl, I can't imagine having a boy. When we found out that we were having a girl, a new Carrie Underwood song came out. This song kind of summed up that short season for us. Here are some of the words:
"Since the day they got married, He'd been praying for a little baby boy.
Someone he could take fishing, Throw the football and be his pride and joy.
He could already see him holding that trophy, Taking his team to state.
But when the nurse came in with a little pink blanket, All those big dreams changed.
And now he's wrapped around her finger,She's the center of his whole world.
And his heart belongs to that sweet little beautiful, wonderful, perfect All-American Girl."
Tim is an amazing dady to our little girl. Some of my favorite moments of them together are seeing him hold her for the first time, hearing him read to her, and watching him take her in the water at the beach for the first time. He is so sweet and gentle with her, but she is going to know very quickly that she is not going to get away with anything. I truly believe that he is an incredible example of God's love for His children. Who could ask for anything more than that?
Happy Father's Day Tim! Brookie and I are so thankful for you!

So we decided to let her play with what she wants. Here are a few of her favorite toys...
door stoppers (which we now refer to as the boingy)
and the kicker...the little plastic hooks that attach to the top of the jumper. Why do I buy her toys???

Well, here she is...this is Brooke's version of crawling. Daddy calls it the army crawl and my parents call it scooting, but whatever it is, it's pretty cute!
This was a few weeks ago
and this is how she moves today! (btw...listen to her at the end. It sounds like she says hi!)
