Today...Braelyn is 2!!!

Happy Birthday to my sweet, precious Baby Braelyn!!! 

We cannot remember what life was even like before you came along, yet the past two years have flown by at a frightening speed.

I hope all your wishes come true, whatever wishes that 2-year-olds may have.  I know today will be a super fun day with your whole family!!! 

You are our little princess and we have big hopes and dreams for you.  You brighten everyone's day with your beautiful smile and contagious giggle!  We love it when you sing and dance and count everything in sight. 

We love you so much, Honey!!!!!  Happy 2nd Birthday, Baby Braelyn!!!!!

Have a great day...I know we will!!! =)

ABCs and 123s

Happy Friday!

Another milestone to discuss.  For the past few weeks now, Braelyn is saying her ABCs AND counting from 1-10 and backwards from 10-1!!!  She could count and sing all day!

She also wore her first 'big girl' bandaid the other day.  I put a Tangled (Rapunzel) band-aid on a little owie that she had on her knuckle.  She was so excited and kept it on all day!!! 

What a precious little girl.  Love her so much!!!  Only 2 months until her 2nd Birthday!!!  Wowzas!!!

Have a great weekend!

UH OH!!!

Good Morning!

Just documenting another cute fact about our Lil' Peanut.  UH OH is her favorite saying right now.  She says UH OH to about everything.  If I'm holding her and Daddy tries to take her, she says, "UH OH!"  If she falls down, "UH OH!"  If I try to change her diaper, she says, "UH OH!"  It's so cute and I just love it.

She almost has her entire alphabet down pat and can count to 10!!!  My brilliant little "Beep"!!! 

In other news, her brother was 1 of 14 students in his class of 150-something kids to get on the HIGH HONOR ROLL!!! 


Have a great day!

21 Months!!!

Hi All!

I'm going to keep this short and sweet, but figured I'd post something while I had a free minute.  Yes, a minute is all.  I've been VERY busy!

So, Peanut turns 21 months on Wednesday!!!

What's happening...

Whenever she's hungry, she tells me, "EAT!"  She could eat all day if I let her.  For such a tiny thing, she sure can put the food away!  She continues to eat extremely healthy.  In the coming weeks, I will share a sample of her diet, for the parents of toddlers out there that might be reading this.  Her current favorite breakfast is a banana and whole wheat toast or an egg, whole wheat toast and pears.  She will NOT drink milk or juice.  The only thing she wants is WATER.  ('Wa-Wa' in Braelyn language.)  I suppose this will have to be addressed with her pediatrician.  I want to make sure she is getting all the nutrients that she needs right now. 

She is singing and talking a lot more and making A LOT of sense now!  We laugh all the time, she's just so darn cute!!! 

Major Mama's girl...but what's new there?

Favorite things right now are blocks of any kind, her new kitchen, her new Disney Princess table and chair set, teaset and books of all kind.  She could look at books ALL DAY.  I love it!  She continues to show a lot of musicality by singing, dancing and playing on the piano.  I will get this girl into piano lessons, if she wants them when she is older!  I always wanted lessons, but my parents could not afford them.

I have a new high definition camcorder that I'm learning how to use.  In the meantime, please be sure to check out our YouTube Channel, BringingUpPeanut.  You can also find it by copying this link to watch Braelyn's Mickey Mouse "Hot Dog" Dance. 

Enjoy and Stay Warm!
