4 Months!

Happy 4 Months Brynlee!!

We took you to your 4 month appointment about 2 weeks after you turned 4 months and you weighed 15 lbs 5 oz!!!  So Im thinking you were about 15 lbs at 4 months :)  You are 25" long!!! 

Clothing Size:
You are in 3-6 month onesies and outfits...time to pack up your 3 month clothes *tear*

Still in size 2 :) 

You are eating about every 3-3 1/2 hrs.  

You hair is still dark!
Your eyes are like a mixture!!  It cracks us up because we really don't know what to tell people when they ask us what color your eyes are.  Grey, green, and brown all mixed together!  I guess thats what people call Hazel! They are big and BEAUTIFUL!!!  I love that my girls have different colored eyes :) 

You are still sleeping great!!  You still typically you go to bed between 8-9pm and wake up between 6-7am!  IT IS AWESOME!!  We only swaddle your legs and you sleep on your back. You take about 45 minutes naps and lets just say there are quite a few of them a day.  You only last about 2 hrs before you are ready to go down again.  I think you get most of your sleep out at night!

Extra Stuff:

  • You sat in your Bumbo for the first time!  I think you like it b/c you can see everything so well.  I don't keep you in there for very long cause you are a squirmer.
  • You love chewing on your 1st finger and thumb.
  • Your legs are so like to stand up (with our help of course!)
  • You took your first trip to the beach (which also happened to be Brooklyn's first trip too).  Lets just say you were not a fan of the sand blowing in your face (who would be) and we had to keep cleaning you off but other than that it was so fun and you did well!
  • You are DROOLING like crazy...Brooklyn always lets me know that you have stuff coming out of your mouth.  Miss B is my little cleaner as I'm sure you will find out and she always says, "Uh Oh!" She says that when you spit up too ;)
  • You rolled the other direction this month....from stomach to back!!  Yay!!  
  • We took another trip this month to visit Nana and B-Pa!  It was the first time you have been to their house!  Another great trip!  You slept most of the way in the car but we did stop some to let you get out of your seat.  It is a 4 hr drive but on the way there you slept most of the time b/c we left after your bedtime!
  • You are sooooo smiley!!  We pretty much will get a smile back if we smile at sweet!

  • Look at those strong legs!

    I think she looks soooo much like Brad in this picture!

    Rolling over!

    I'm having issues with my computer and pictures....I need to take it in to get in fixed :(((  So this is why I only have 3 pictures of my precious Bryn for this month.  At least I have a few ;)

3 Months!

Happy 3 Months Brynlee!!

You are now 14lbs!!!  No problem gaining weight here ;)  

Clothing Size:
You are still wearing 3 month onesies....but filling those out nicely ;)  You are wearing 3-6 month dresses!

Still in size 2 :) 

You are eating about every 3-3 1/2 hrs. But by the afternoon you start to eat sometimes as much as every 2 hours.  I think you are filling up for the night SINCE you are now sleeping ALL THE WAY THROUGH!! You usually got to bed around 9 and sleep till 5-6....I can't believe it!  Anyway so the nursing every 2 hrs is no problem here since you sleep so good for mommy at night lol! 

Your hair is still dark but I can tell it is growing... :) Your eyes seem to change daily!  We took a good look at Brad's eyes yesterday and we think you will have his eye color...they seem to change too! They are like a mixture of green and brown.  Your eyes still sometimes look a little grey/blue, but then I think green ha!

You are sleeping sooooooo good!  At the beginning of this month you slept from 8pm -7am!!!  Typically you go to bed between 8-9pm and wake up between 6-7am!  IT IS AWESOME!!  We only swaddle your legs and you sleep on your back.  Naps are still kinda all over the place and I am ready for naps to get established a little better but I know that still might be another month or so. You sleep on your back no problem.

Extra Stuff:

  • You LOVE your swing! You get all happy when you start to see the mobile go in circles and light up!  She smile real big and straighten out your legs...its so cute!
  • We have caught you sucking your thumb a few times...just like big sis ;)
  • You take the paci ok...a little better than big sis ever did but not sure if it's a keeper yet.
  • At the beginning of this month you started trying really hard to roll over! You would get stuck on your arm and that would make you mad and I would have to come and help you out.  BUT by the middle of the month you ROLLED all the way over from back to your tummy!  You were so proud :)
  • I can't get enough of your smile!  Especially in the mornings when I get you you just give me the biggest smile and it makes me feel soooooo good!  
  • You are starting to get very vocal!  You just coo and coo at us....we love it!  
  • Brooklyn loves to find your in the morning (sometimes you are in your crib and sometimes you are in mommy's bed).  She still can't get enough of you!
  • Your little yawns are so precious!  
Holding that head up so good!

All ready for church

She loves her playmat....especially the sun :)

Nothing like two crazy girls to keep Brynlee entertained!

Meeting new friends!

Sister L-O-V-E

(I love how B holds her sisters hand in the stroller)

Got that thumb ;)

Sweet Brynlee!

    Bryce came for a play-date!!  Since they have moved to Magnolia (back in March) we don't get to see them as much and I know Miss B misses her best friend :(  BUT they have so much fun when he comes and just pick up right where they left off ;)  Cousins are the best!'s June!
    Time to bust out the pool!
    Hadn't even bought swimsuits yet ;0
    Oh what fun they had :)

    A Smile

    Brooklyn requested that her little sister sit by her so they could watch
     Mickey Mouse together this morning!

    Not sure if Lil' B is smiling cause she loves Mickey Mouse 
    or because Big Sis is holding her hand ;)

    2 Months!

    Happy 2 Months Brynlee!!!

    I saw this layout on another blog and decided to use it as well for here is month 2!

    At your 2 month appointment you weighed 12lbs 1oz and 24 inches tall!
    (a side note....Brooklyn was 11lbs and 22 3/4 inches tall) 

    Clothing Size:
    You are wearing 3 month onesies!  I have put you in a few 0-3 month dresses but even those seem too short...they almost look like shirts ha!  I can't beleive how quickly you are growing!!!

     About half way through the month we switched you to size 2 diapers!  

    You are eating about every 3-3 1/2 hrs.  At night you usually wake up once but sometimes twice.  You usually have a late night feeing about 10 or 11 and then you might wake up at 2-3am then again maybe around 5-6am.

    Your hair is still dark and it looks like you have about as much as you did when you were born.  Everyone comments on your dark hair!  Your eyes are still very dark...almost grey/blue.  

    They are big and beautiful!!!!

    You sleep very well during the day (mostly the morning half) and it is not too hard to get you down.  At night it is another story.  You start to fuss and we know you are tired!  We swaddle you and sometimes have to bounce you, or walk around, or go into our bathroom with the water running or fan to help you fall asleep.  Gone are the days when you would just fall asleep anywhere at anytime ha! You also like to be awake for a good while between 8-11pm!

    Extra Stuff:
    • You slept in your crib for the first time early this month.  I did not want this AT ALL :((  I am so sensitive to all your little noises that I just can't sleep.....when mommy doesn't get sleep it is hard for me to function and take care of you sweet girls.  Daddy is now sleeping in your room b/c I just couldn't have you all by yourself.  When you wake up to eat he brings you to me.  I don't really like this set up but didn't know what else to do.  I wish I could just have you snuggled up right next to me all night :)
    • I had a doctors appointment and you got to meet Dr. Ball for the first time.  She was suppose to deliver you but was not working that day.  She was excited to see you and said you were just perfect!
    • You took your first ride in the double stroller with Brooklyn!  It was a great walk and you pretty much slept the whole time!
    • We took you to a restaurant for the first time also!  You slept for about 1/2 the time and then cried the other half...I think you wanted to eat what we were eating lol!
    • You are starting to hold your head up really strong girl!
    • You are such a good baby!!!!!! We got our first real smiles this past month.....ugh just melted my heart!  I LOVE IT!!!!  and I love being your mommy!  So proud of you sweet Brynlee!

    Here are a few pics from the past month :)

    Love your cute yawns!

    Brooklyn : "OK I guess we can keep her!"

    This pic cracks me up.....Daddy was bouncing Bryn while reading the newspaper. 
    When I saw them I laughed cause it looks like Bryn is reading the other side of the paper lol!

    Loving those baby rolls!

    Already telling secrets ;)

    Pretty girl!

    Miss B is still so sweet to her sister and loves to cuddle with her Bryn!

    Going on a walk :)

    We caught a smile :)

    Brooklyn always wants to take a picture 
    with her sister after we take her monthly pic ;)

    Park Day

    Saturday we decided to spend our family day at the park!  It was a beautiful day!  Brooklyn enjoyed paddle boating with Daddy for the first time...she liked feeding the ducks and saw some baby ducklings too!  We had a nice picnic under some tree and ending the day taking a train ride all around the park. 

    We made it to the park :)

     Paddle Boats

    Picnic Lunch

    Sweet Bryn enjoying the ride!

    Train Ride

    (Miss B really was having a good time...haha. 
    She was pretty tired by the time we went on the train though.)

     What do you see Miss B?!

    Brynlee slept the entire train ride on Daddy's lap....we couldn't get her in the picture :(

    "In the Beginning..."

    This is Brooklyn's first memory verse :)  We have been working on it at home.  I think she learned it in about 2 days.  So proud of my sweet girl!  Love you Brooklyn!

    Oh and of course she had to teach it to her sister..... (I caught her right in the middle as she was moving Brynlee's hands for the word "Created") Made us laugh when she was clapping her sisters hands for her bahaha!
