This week

Let's start with Brynn:

Caleb loves truck books!

Caleb is not much of an eater. He has a few things he likes, eggs and orange juice are two favorites though.


We went to the local aquarium for the first time. We saw fish, penguins, bugs, snakes and spiders. Caleb liked the fish the best.

6 Month Pictures Are In!

We snuck in a few of Caleb too:

Awesome or Awful?

Ok, so this video will make you either think I'm an awful mother to let my son eat ice cream out of the container, on the counter. Or, I'm a pretty cool mother that lets her kids let loose every once in a while. I choose to believe the latter. Oh, and this really is what it looks like. I knew he started to do it and I let him. He was so happy.

So, I already posted some pictures from this photo shoot but I noticed I didn't post this one and it is so cute!

6 Months, Really?

I can hardly believe it but Brynn is 6 months old now. She had her 6 month check up on Monday and she's doing great! She weights 15 lbs 15 oz and is now in the 50% for weight (compared to her other appointments where she was 75%). That baby chub is already starting to melt away.
Brynn is still in the 50% for height too. She's just an average baby girl now.

Here's Brynn's first time sitting down to eat real food. She still isn't eating the cereals very well but I try every day to feed it to her. She does like those Sweet Potato Puffs however and it is so cute because Caleb likes to put them in her mouth.

Brynn is sleeping from about 7pm to 7am these days and takes 2 or 3 naps. She likes to be held, she likes to laugh when you play peek-a-boo or tickle her and she likes hold and suck on toys. She is also starting to pay more attention to Caleb. That is one I've been waiting for. It is fun to have two kids and see the way they interact with each other.
Once when Brynn was on the floor and started fussing (because princesses can't be left on the floor for too long) Caleb said, "Poor Bwynn." That is something I say when she is tired and crying and we can't put her down for some reason, or because she has been in her car seat too long. Caleb just took it to mean it's something we say whenever she cries.
Overall, Brynn is happy. When she first wakes up she gives you the cutest smiles and I feel like her face is more angelic than ever. I just like that she has a look about her now (more than just a newborn face) and it is so perfect. I love her!

These are the Days

I've been sewing again! I made a little outfit, headband and even booties (not pictured) for Brynn's 6 month pictures. We took those today and I will post them when we get them! Doesn't this dress look so elegant? I love it! (Thank you Pinterest for finding me a free pattern)

Thanks to a Relief Society activity at church I learned that it is ok to add spinach to smoothies. Caleb loves to make them and eat them:

Caleb picked up Brynn's blanket and said, "Bwinn blankie. Give to her?" I told him he could. He did this when he "gave it to her." (I asked him to do it again for the camera)

OH, and I forgot to mention Brynn is getting her two bottom teeth. I can't believe it. I was so excited with every new thing that happened to Caleb but with Brynn I don't want her to get bigger. I'm sad to see those new teeth coming in. Oh well. That's how time works I guess.
