From Minnesota with love

The day before Easter Brooklyn received a package from her Aunt Ann in Minnesota. She was so excited to open the box. She got so many fun things. Below is a picture of just a small portion of her new stuff. This little lady is so lucky to have so many aunts that love her so much even in Minnesota.

The peach fuzz hair is in full force today! :)

Brooklyn is 5 months!

How is it possible that this little girl is already 5 months old?

* She had her first illness, an ear infection. It was so sad I took her in for continuing to have a fever, once Dr. Smith looked in her ears she said it was an infection. She has to be on antibiotics for 10 days. It was so scary to have her fever get so high. Thankfully I have amazing sisters to call. I now call Mandy, Dr. Miles.

* Since she was sick, she is back to only falling asleep in my arms again. She hasn't napped in her crib for a couple weeks now.

* Her way of communicating has changed to little squeals. It seems like she is screaming but with a smile. :)

* Her sleep pattern is getting more and more in sync every day.

* She LOVES going outside and just watching all of her cousins play. She gets excited and sticks her feet straight out when they talk to her and run and play in front of her.

* She is doing really well on rice cereal. We have made it a little thicker and she is fine with it.

* She tried her first puff from Aunt Kristen the other day. She really liked it but couldn't seem to keep it in her mouth. It was so funny.

* She is always sucking on her two fingers, and drooling constantly still.

* She likes to watch some TV, her favorite is Sesame Street.

* Her hair is getting longer. After she baths and it dries it sticks straight up. I call it peach fuzz.

* Her craddle cap has cleared up, thanks to a natural shampoo we found.

* She loves to go for walks in her stroller. We have been trying to go everyday until it gets too hot.

This little girl's giggles melt my heart. When she sees you she gets the biggest smile on her face. She has the sweetest personality and loves being around everyone.
