Happy 18 Months, First Movie in a Theater and First Time Trick-or-Treating!!!

Happy November!

The past couple weeks brought more firsts and milestones.  We celebrated Braelyn's 18 Month "Birthday" on October 25th.  As a 1 1/2-year-old, she got a birthday cake and gift to open!  She loved them both!  Insert the overly used phrase:  "I cannot believe where the last year and a half went!"  Well, I can't.  Braelyn has grown and changed so much from the tiny 7 pound, 2 ounce little newborn we were blessed with on April 25, 2010.  She is so beautiful, intelligent, funny, tall and thin!  She is in the 92nd percentile for her height, but is very slender.  She loves her mixed vegetables, turkey, mozzarella, anything with pasta and vanilla sandwich cookies.  She will eat almost anything you put in front of her.  I am so, so thankful that she is not a picky eater.  (I got lucky with both kids...although, I would like to take some credit for healthy eating habits.)  She loves Team Umizoomi, Bubble Guppies, Dora and recently was introduced to BLUE'S CLUES!!!  That is her current favorite show.  She will talk into anything that resembles a cell phone and is already proving to be quite the girly girl, carrying around her purse, sitting at her vanity and playing with her Disney Princess Beauty Set, complete with hairdryer, curling iron, brush, lipstick and perfume.  She is my little princess, my wild child and my little sidekick.  Like her mama, she is NOT afraid to voice her opinion, especially when she isn't happy about something.  Ha!  Imagine that?


On Monday, October 31st, Braelyn went trick-or-treating for the first time!  She got lots of candy and had fun walking around with Mama, Dada and Dylan.  Here are a couple pictures of our pretty witch:

Last Sunday, October 30th, we went to see our very first movie in the theater with Braelyn, "Puss in Boots", a movie from the Shrek Empire.  How was it, you ask?  Ummmmm...I don't really know.  You see, I was busy keeping our little princess happy.  She got the hang of that movie theater business really quick.  We were delicately breaking off the tiniest of pieces of popcorn fluff and giving it to her, when next thing we knew, she was digging in the popcorn bucket like a champ...eating popcorn by the fistfuls...hard, crunchy, choking hazards and all.  (Yeah, yeah, yeah...I know, she has TEETH now!)  She had her sippy cup too, but was much more interested in Mama's big glass of ice water with the straw.  All in all she did VERY well.  She sat through (almost) the whole movie!  She got a little fussy towards the end, so Mama took her out into the lobby to run around for the last 15-20 minutes.  This was where she had the most fun.  I did not remember our camera, so only had my cell phone to take photos.  Please bear with the terrible quality, but still some very precious photos:
Looks like we'll be seeing Happy Feet Two in the very near future...

Happy Friday!!!
