About US

My photo
Nate and I have been married for 2 and a half years now now which has gone by pretty fast! In January we were blessed to have Brynlee join our family. Nate works as a software engineer at Novell and I am so grateful for the hard worker he is and how he goes to work every day to support us. He is the best husband to me and the best dad to Brynlee and she can't get enough of him. I stay at home with Brynlee along with doing esthetics part time. And Brynlee just stays busy keeping us smiling everyday! We couldn't be a happier little family!

3 Months!

Yesterday my friend Jessica was SO nice and offered to take photos of Brynlee. These were Brynlee's first "official" pictures taken thanks to her! I can't believe that she is already 3 months old! She is at such a fun stage now. Here are some things she does (just so I can remember)

*She found her hands and can not keep them out of her mouth.
*She loves to grab her toes and pull her feet up
*She likes to bat and try to reach for objects we give her or that are above her head
*She will pull the butterfly on her bouncer that plays music and smiles while looking at them and sometimes gets frustrated if she can't get it
*She giggles and laughs
*Lately she has been sleeping at least 9-12 hours at night before waking up
*She likes to play a game in the car where I give her the pacifier, then I let go she spits it out and kind of gives a whimper/fake cry until my hand touches her face and I give it back to her. She does that over and over again then after a while she will keep it in. She is getting smart and I need to be more careful, I think she's trying to train me :)
*She still panics and stresses out when you take her bottle away if she is not done eating!
*If she is crying or unhappy I sing, "I'm a little tea pot, wheels on the bus, or the Itsy Bitsy Spider." She loves when we play and sing with her
*She has so many different faces she likes to make.
*She talks a lot more(well oo's and oh's) and coos at us and tries to carry on a conversation
*She still is our favorite girl and is so perfect for us. We love her more then anything!

Brynlee laughing/ Dancing

Below this post is the Video of Brynlee laughing while dancing with Nate and Jake which I posted so we could remember it. If you want to watch it turn off the music at the bottom of my blog so you can hear her better. (Maybe its just cuz we are her parents but I think it is so cute) It's pretty much her first time really laughing that hard and consistently and she is about 12 weeks in this video.
Nate is a hip hop dancer (whatever you call it) and ever since Brynlee was born he always has turned on the music and would dance with her, or move her legs and arms to the beat. For a little over a month now whenever he turns on his music she'll start doing it by herself wich we like to think she is trying to dance, although, I'm not sure at her age that's possible :) She's kind of been laughing the past couple weeks.
Last night we were hanging out with our good friends Kim and Jake and we were at their house and Nate, Jake and Brynlee all had a little dance party. Nate was holding her while dancing and then Jake started dancing facing her and she starts laughing more. (That's the video posted below which we wouldn't have had if it wasn't for Kim) It was so funny to watch. I definitely think she is going to take after her dad and become a dancer... although I'm not sure we should be getting her use to hip hop music at this age :)
