Brooklyn is 1!!

Well she was one in November. The poor thing was so sick on her birthday and we had to move her party to the next day. It was just a fun family party. She is so spoiled she got lots of fun gifts and loved everyone singing to her. One of her birthday presents was getting her ears pierced. It wasn't her most favorite at the time, but she looked so cute. Thank you Ashley for helping me get her little party set up so fast.

And my amazing friend Reyanna with Rey of Light Photography did her 1 year pictures for me. I absolutely loved them. She did such a great job and really got Brooklyn's personality in most of the pictures. I can't believe this little cutie is 1!!

* She loves reading books. She will just grab a book herself and babble and point to it.
* She has 5 teeth! In the month of October those babies came, and she looks so cute.
* Loves feeding herself. Her favorites are bananas, chicken and mac n cheese.
* She is not walking yet. She is getting more brave and standing on her own, but no steps yet.
* She gives the best hugs and kisses. Sometimes when she kisses you, she sticks her tongue out.
* Talks so much. When Ashley says a name, she repeats it in her own language.
* Still has her unique crawl.
* Gives us the funniest scowl when she is confused are not happy about something.
* Let's us know when she is unhappy by giving us a little scream.

We are so truly blessed to have her. She makes our life so much brighter and I do not know what I would do without her. She is perfect in every way. I cannot wait to see what the next year has for us and this little girl!

Brooklyn's First Halloween!

We had such a fun Halloween this year. Brooklyn loved it. She loves being outside and thought it was so neat to go to neighbor's doors and get candy.

A couple days before Halloween our ward had a neighborhood party. A sweet co-worker had lent me a adorable bumble bee costume for Brooklyn. I loved it but didn't try it on her until the day of the party. (I know that's bad) So when we took her it looked cute but she was way too tall for it. But she wore it anyways. She just used the bumble bee head has a pillow.

Ashley wanted to surprise everyone and dress up. She found the beard "recipe" on pinterest and it was hilarious.
 Brooklyn was so cute when Daddy put on his costume. I think hearing his voice helped, but it didn't seem to bother her one bit.

 Since the bumble bee costume was too little. I was in a scrabble to find something else. My sister in law had said that she had wings and a halo. Then Mandy lent me the pretty white skirt. So it was perfect, she was our little angel.

 Penelope was the cutest monkey/gorilla.

 Allie had it made, she would just roll right up and say trick or treat! With mom's help of course.
 All the kids were pretty much done
