Cutie Patooties

We have quite a few cutie patooties in this family. First this cutie patootie is getting too big for her bouncer.
These two had their first dance competition and did such a good job! (Paola is yelling at someone behind them. Teehee!)




This little cutie patootie was there to watch.A couple days later Paola and I took the kids to the park. We thought we would see how Brooklyn did in the swing. She loved it! She was so relaxed she fell asleep.
Cutie cousin Allie!







We got a video of her swinging. I don't know why it's showing sideways.

Feeding the Ducks!

The weather was so nice today, we decided to take Brooklyn to the duck pond by our house and feed the ducks!


They were fearless and would eat the bread right out of our hands. It was a little scary at first to have so many ducks come at you at once.



Dad didn't think it was necessary to comb his hair for the ducks. LOL

On our way home Brooklyn was so tired, she fell asleep with her toy in her mouth. So precious!

She love her toes

This little girl is growing up so fast. She has been grabbing her toes for a couple weeks, but now she loves putting them in her mouth. She is so funny!

Rice Cereal

At Brooklyn's 4 month check up Dr. Smith said that she showed all the signs and would be able to try rice cereal. After we picked Dave up from work we went to Wal-Mart and got her first box of cereal and some cute bowls and spoons. Her first reaction was so funny, but she seemed to get the hang of it.

Look at her face in this picture! ^
Now that she seems to be doing well with the cereal I am trying to keep a night time routine where she has her cereal, we take a bath and get ready for bed. I hope it works.

At 4 months she is 87 percentile for weight and head, and 99 percentile for height! She also got three shots, but she was such a good girl.

Brooklyn is 4 months!

* She blows bubbles on cue.

* She drools a lot. We are wearing a bib all the time now.

* She laughs now! It is usually when she is so sleepy.

* She has moved from the newborn bassinet to the pack n play next to my bed at night.

* She takes her naps in her crib. I think this is more of an accomplishment for mom :)

* Her hair is growing in, it looks like it will be light brown for now.

* She is wearing 6 to 9 months clothes.

* She has cradle cap pretty bad. Dr. Smith gave us some ideas to help with it.

* She grabs her own feet and rolls back and forth from side to side.

* She gets the biggest smile on her face when she sees her daddy. I don't know if it's because she gets tired of hanging out with mommy all day, but it's so cute.

Being this little girls mom is amazing. It is such a blessing to finally have that feeling for myself. I have to admit I am one of those paranoid moms but I'm really trying to bring it down a couple notches. Thankfully I have Dave and Ashley here to help me out with that. It has been so fun watching this little girl grow so far.
