The happenings and a few pics...

Brooke turned the big 1-5 last week. 15 months that is! Things have been so exciting and fun and busy that taking a second to put a post together has gone by the wayside.

At Brooke's 15 month appointment, the girl weighed in at 19.4 pounds (22%) and 31 inches (68%). Tall and lean, just like her Daddy!

Cool things Brooke is doing/saying and other things going on:

She walks everywhere. I guess I should say runs...girl moves fast!
She loves to play in dirt and is super brave about trying new things.
She goes down the slides at the park, no problem and no fear. Eek.
Jasper and Brooke have become the bestest of friends and it is adorable to watch them play!
She would be happy if she could spend all day, everyday outside. I think she will be mad at winter-better get some warm clothes!
Still LOVES food. All of it. How is she so skinny?!
Sleeping is stellar. 11 hours at night and about 2 during the day.
The words, oh the words: Mama, Dada, flower, Buba (Jasper), bird, book, bike, ball, shoes, nose, baby, nana, cado (avocado), fish, turtle, slide.....

And the picture fest of the summer (in random order):






















Adore my little family!!

Turning 1





Oh little Brooke, how did you get so big? It seems like just yesterday that you were a "teeny" little thing. Okay-you were never teeny, but much smaller than you are now.
The last year has been one of the most amazing in your Daddy and my lives. You are an absolute blessing, not only to us but to everyone who gets to be a part of your life. 

You are doing so many things now:

You eat EVERYTHING and ANYTHING and if someone is eating something the better share! You love yourself some popsicle! Even the tart lime flavor.
You have 2.5 bottom teeth and 1.5 on top-that second top one has been a bit of a pain.
Your hair is getting long and your Daddy loves to play with the little curls.
Your blue eyes stop people in stores all of the time.
Six days before you turned one you decided to take your first steps and have been working at the whole walking thing since then!
Jasper is your best friend. You get SO excited to see him, always.
You have started to sleep through the night again, which means you are my best friend! haha
You love hanging out with your grandparents and Auntie Errin and Uncle Colin and LOVE Milo!
You are so good at telling me what you want-your pointing skills are stellar!
You love to say flower and bird.
You are giving the best hugs now and your new thing is wanting to sit in my lap. I kind of love this one!

I feel so lucky to be your Mom and feel even luckier to spend everyday with you.
