Say What??

I needed to do a few Brynn updates cause I've been slacking lately. Apparently the girl is ready to crawl! She just can't seem to get the whole hand knee coordination down but she is staying on her knees much longer now! Time to baby proof...ohhhh the joys that lie ahead!

I've been working, working, working to get B to say mama for her first word. Well that didn't happen. Instead she said baba which Logan insists meant brother. He said, "No Mom! Brother was her first word! Now write it in her baby book!" He asks me almost daily if I've written it yet. Finally yesterday I got mama out of the girl and now she won't quit. It's so cute.

And that teething post I did a while back...well she's Finally got some! Two to be exact. Now she loooves to bite down on her spoon while I'm feeding her and hold it there. She's growing so fast.

7 Years/6 Month Portraits...

Yes, I know Brynn is almost 8 months old and I'm just now posting her 6 month pics! What the heck have I been doing? For some reason there was always something else I had to do that was more important. Maybe it's because I don't like coming upstairs to get on the computer! I feel cut off from everything else. Ohhhhh to have a laptop! One day I tell ya. Well, here they are in all their glory. Had a hard time narrowing down so Enjoy!

FYI, these studio pics I did at my sis-in-laws house.
The rest were just done around town.

And here is my Big 7 Year Old! So Handsome. This one will make a fine man one day. He's so considerate and thoughtful. He's been holding doors open for people for as long as I can remember. Even strangers! His wife will appreciate the fact that he can already do laundry and make his bed! Things that most men seem to be lacking. Now if we can just get those dirty clothes to make the hamper.

And here's brother and sister together. I thank my lucky stars everyday that I have 2 healthy, happy kids.

We hope you've enjoyed your stay!

Walden Farms...

Friday we went to the Walden Pumpkin Patch (best punkin patch this side of the mississippi) with some of our closest friends and had a blast! Brynn is sooo outnumbered in this group of boys!
Rundown of the group:
Me, Logan (7) and Brynn(7 months)
Carol and Adam (4)
Jamie and Bailey (3)
Carrie, Maddox (4) and McKane (2 months)
Aunt Tiner
We were a GROUP! The kids always have a blast when they get together and we all get to chat (when we're not chasing a kid down!) Lots of pics to follow...had a hard time narrowing them down.

This is the first pics of the day and Logan is already sick of them.

My Lil Punkin headWonder what they're all thinking here? Something was very interesting!

My other Lil Punkin Head

It only took about 20 shots to get a half way decent one. You should see the ones that didn't make the cut! Maddox's face is Carrie made over.
Our newest member...McKane

In motion hugging

I was trying to get a good shot of the 2 of them together and Logan did this pose. Then he said, "You like it when I do this don't you mom." Man, I've got the boy trained!
I hope they stay close forever!

It was a great day. I thank my lucky stars every day to have such AWESOME friends. Seriously, I don't know what I'd do without you guys!

Baby Model

Through the miracles of the internet I heard about a baby casting call. It was a girl out of Springfield, TN and she was doing a photoshoot for a company called Baby Legs. I have been dying to get Brynn a pair of these so I was hoping that if I nominated Brynn for the shoot I'd get a free pair...And I DID!! YEEAA!!! Well she just posted a few of the pics from the shoot. Copy and paste the link:

I picked the green and white striped pair by the way.

The "Video Games & Other Stuff Club"

Logan's bedtime ritual consist of what we call "sleeps". Basically you just lay in bed with him and talk about his day. Well tonights sleep was very interesting. It started this afternoon when he came home with a membership card that his buddy Spencer made him. This officially makes him part of the "Video Games & Other Stuff Club". Here's a rundown of how the club works so far:
1.) Monday is Mario day
2.) Tuesday is dodge ball day
3.) Wednesday is freeze tag day
4.) Thursday is chase girls day but also consists of Bahooki (which apparently means bottom) Ball day. You throw a ball and hit someone in the Bahooki.
5.) Friday is mix up day (I'm assuming this means they can play anything)

I'm sure this is just a starting plan and there will be more rules to come. Spencer is the leader of this club. It only has 4 members so far but Logan is planning on doing some recruitin' tomorrow.

Our sleep doesn't end there! Peyton is also in the club and he is the leader of another organization called Paco. I think Pacos are like a different race or species maybe. Anywho, Pacos walk around in the squatting form, which looks to be very painful. When anyone who's not a Paco comes near someone yells, "PACO INTRUDER!!!!" and all the Pacos scatter! Oh and they even have a Paco Dance. It's very amusing as well. Maybe Logan will demonstrate for you one day.

If you cold just hear the enthusiasm he has in his voice when he's explaining all this to me you'd want to be a part of these clubs too! Who knows, maybe one day I'll get my membership card...fingers crossed!
Ahhhhh to be a kid again!

Seven Month Faces...

If there's one thing the girl can do it's make some crazy faces. Here's a lil example of some of her latest work.

She always has a good time eating in her highchair and yesterday was no exception...hence the food on her face.
