10 Month Old Peanut

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today, Miss Braelyn is 10 MONTHS OLD!  WOW, almost a year old????? 

I LOVE this picture so much!  She's looking at a picture of her brother!)

At 10 months old, my baby has grown and changed so much from the little 7 lb, 2 oz tiny girl that we brought home from the hospital.

She now weighs 20 pounds.  She likes most any baby food, as long as it's fruit.  She is not a fan of many of the vegetables.  She likes baby yogurt melts and baby cereal puffs.

She says Mama, Dada and Num-Num!

She loves to sit and play with her toys and is moving around really well. 

She scoots backwards really fast, but does not go forward yet.  We think she might go straight to walking!

She is a Mama's Girl, but loves to spend time with her Daddy and Brother.

I don't know what we ever did before we had her!  She is so much fun and brings so much joy to us all.

We love you so very much, Braelyn!  Happy 10 Months! 

Coming soon...details on her 1st Birthday Princess Party, which I am starting to plan. 

Please find my new business venture on Facebook:  Braelyn's Boutique and PLEASE "like" us! 

Have a great weekend!

Spring Fever

I believe we all have it.  It's been so nice these past few days!  I just hope we don't get any more snow or cold temps. 

As I mentioned yesterday, we have been BUSY.  Last week, we went with "Da-Da" on a short trip out of town.  He had a conference to attend for work and me and the kids got to do some serious shopping.

We even got some reading in.  Braelyn loves much that she was looking at Mama's book too...
Anyone with a baby knows just how much stuff you need to pack when you travel.  I did an excellent job...I remembered everything!  The only thing I hadn't thought about was bath time.  Oh no, my tiny girl was to bathe in a BIG TUB???  As you can see for yourself, she did great!  (I don't know why I was so worried!)
We spent the first day shopping at the mall across the highway from our hotel.  We found a couple of things...Dylan got his Green Bay Super Bowl shirt that he wanted.  We got Chris a Green Bay Super Bowl pub glass.  I got a few clearance shirts.  I wasn't overly impressed for the time that we spent there.  In my head, we should have left with bags upon bags of good stuff!  My poor kids were tired after all that!

A couple of weeks ago, we bought Braelyn some clothes at Target.  I really love their stuff.  However, this cute little shirt has a small head opening.  We sure did get a cute picture out of it though.
I LOVE this outfit from has a little mesh skirt attached to the shirt.

Like I said above, she likes to read!  Here is cute picture of Braelyn and her Daddy reading the Sunday paper...
Sunday night, we went to dinner at the Bamboo House with Mom and some of my siblings.  We had a great time!  Do you see the look on Dylan's face?  He had a blast!
Chris attempted to take a picture of's a cute one, but he had a funny expression on his face and Braelyn looked away!
What did we do for Valentine's Day?  Chris took us out for dinner on Saturday night at our favorite steak place for Valentine's Day.  Sunday, we went to the Bamboo House.  Last night, he came home with roses and a beautiful card and toys for the kids...(and Subway for dinner!)  What a great guy!  Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Next post:  GARDENING...(I bought all of my seeds for this year's massive garden!)  I'll be looking for advice on a few things!

Have a great day with lots of melting snow!

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!

I am a slacker.  I have been very bad with my blog for the past couple of weeks.  Please forgive me!  We've been very busy!  I will bring you up to speed tomorrow...

I have a lot of pictures to post...but here is one of Braelyn in a "vintage" Jem Nightgown.  Her Aunt Jenny found it for her.  I LOVED Jem when I was a little girl, so I was pretty excited that she found it!

Have a good day!

Green Bay's Good Luck Charm

Good Morning Everyone!

I thought I'd stop in for a quick post.  We got Peanut's new carseat (will post pics tomorrow).  I like it!  I'm just not really looking forward to switching seats.  It means another step towards being a "big girl."  My baby is growing so fast!

Anyway, I have to say WOOHOO to the Green Bay Packers!!!  SUPER BOWL CHAMPS, BABY!!!

Did you know they have a good luck charm????

Yes, they she is:
What a good girl!!!
