Brooklyn's 15 mo check up!

Sorry we have not been around. James was home for a week since he had leave for 2 wks. He left last Friday and our weekend was crazy busy! A little update on Brooklyn

Brooklyn is 15 mos today! She is 22 lbs and 31 in! Getting so big! Dr said she is doing great and growing perfect! He was thrilled to hear she has been off the bottle for a few weeks now. She eats everything and is saying about 4-6 words now. She is very smart though and understands lots. She will bring you her shoes, any toys you ask for and knows where her belly is to name a few things. She is also walking, running and climbing on everything now! She doesn't like the dr at all though- even when they weigh her she screams! She screamed through him checking her all out. He confirmed she is teething BAD! She has 4 teeth that are all the way through and another 4 including 2 molars that have popped through. Mainly on top, but the whole bottom of her gums are swollen! She had to get 2 shots which she cried since I was holding her still but didn't flinch with the shots. Then while waiting for the doc to sign a school form once she was finally calmed down she fell holding her cup and busted her chin and lip. I felt so horrible! Her whole visit was traumatic! She hates the Dr as it is!

She was doing better tonight but went to town on a teether for like 15 mins! LOL Hoping she sleeps well tonight as she was up for like 2 hrs last night! Ugh! So that's her update for now!

Update on us!

We have been busy for the last month and its starting to slow down... or maybe start up again! lol
*** Check out www.dropshots.com/bbsmom for pics of everything we've been doing****
We took a trip to Atlanta mid- January to say Goodbye to my beloved Grandfather. It was so wonderful to see all the family and rejoice in the wonderful life my grandfather lived. We truly miss him! Brendan also got to see snow for the 1st time so he loved that.

I then took a quick trip to TX to see James for the weekend. While there we attended our 1st Military Ball- we had a great time. It was such a nice weekend for us to be able to spend together pretty much alone!! We needed it after the crazy times through the holidays.

Then last weekend my mom, the kids and I went to Disney! We had such a great time. Brooklyn did pretty good- she doesn't like the characters at all but enjoyed playing and going on some rides!

Brendan started basketball so he is enjoying that every Sunday and now has started baseball so it will keep us busy every weekend! He also just received his Red Belt in Tae Kwon Do tonight! He is doing great in school and excels in all sports he does!

Brooklyn is doing great- she is getting so big. She is 14 mos now and walking/running everywhere. She is such a sweetheart but then can be so moody at the same time! She is learning more and more everyday and it amazes me to watch her figure things out.

James is in TX right now and we're currently trying to figure out what the future holds for all of us. He is due to get out of the Army this summer but we're still weighing options on what he may do- so stay tuned for more updates on that :o) He is actually coming home in a few days to spend about 10 days with us so we are very excited about that!

So that's it about us for now... oh about me- I just stay busy keeping up with the kids, work is crazy busy but not much new!

Hope everyone is well- let us know how you're doing too- we love to hear from everybody!

My princess was baptized today!

It was such a beautiful day. Brooklyn was baptized at New City Church this morning. Family & friends were there to share in the wonderful ceremony and lunch afterwards at a local Mexican Restaurant. It was a great ceremony even though she cried the second our Pastor took her which we knew would happen! Thanks to all that were there. We love you all.

God Bless Brooklyn

Happy Halloween

We hope everyone had a great Halloween.
Brooklyn stayed home with me again today since her fever didn't break till last night. She was much better today- still moody, clingy and not fully herself till this afternoon. The fever is gone thankfully and she is getting back to normal- we're so happy!

We went to Brendan's school this morning to watch his parade in his costume then at about 4 pm we walked through the plaza next to our house as they had Trick or Treating- Brendan made out very good on candy there. Then he had a party at Tae Kwon Do from 5-6- more fun! We ate at my parents house and then walked around their neighborhood. Brooklyn was so good riding along in her stroller watching all the kids and her brother! Brendan got SO much candy- we went to a lot of houses and made it back to my parents house just in time for the rain to start coming down!

All in all it was a fun Halloween. Brooklyn was so tired by the time we got him she basically dove for her bed and went right to sleep!
Hope everyone else had a great day/night!
I posted all pics on the website if you want to check them out.
