July and 10 months already!!!

Brookelyn enjoyed playing in the Tupperware drawer. Abby didn't leave her side the whole time we were there.

Abby and Adam did a great job babysitting

After out trip to Nebraska, I flew to Fresno with Brooke and Kyle came home. I decided to spend a couple weeks with my family and it also gave me a chance to do some swim lessons. We ended up staying with my sister, Judy, because my parents house was a mess from renovations. Brookelyn had a lot of fun playing with her cousins and aunt. I was able to see most of my family and was also able to make a little money with my swimming lessons. I also got the chance to visit with friends that I hadn't seen forever. It is always nice to catch up with good friends. I met with a friend from high school, Kimmy "Wilcox" Sorenson, and she gave me a ton of cute clothes for Brookie with lots of match bows. I am very blessed to have such great family and friends that love and support me. Thank you Judy for being hospitable and keeping us for so long. We love you!

Playing in the bath with Brenna

Brooke is going to be 10 months old in a few months and I can't believe how fast time is going. She is so much fun and has become such an easy baby. She sleeps well, goes to sleep easily, and even when she doesn't get a lot of sleep she can still have fun. She nurses about 4-5 times a day and eats three meals a day. She is getting closer and closer to walking, loves to wave, make silly sounds, claps, plays games with us, and got her first tooth this month. She is really in to this cheesy grin, where she kind of snorts and show us her gums and little tooth. It is the cutest smile ever! She talks constantly and eats all the time. I bought her this snack container that she can feed herself from, but the puffs don't fall out and she loves it; it is her favorite toy and impossible to take away without tears. Even if it doesn't have a snack in it, she will put her hand inside and crawl around with it. She gives us kisses all the time and also gives others kisses. She still laughs when I say no, but I do think she understands what it means. She seems to understand what a lot of words mean, but just can't say them. She says three words: mama, dada, and baba, but she talk all the time. She prefers to jabber more than anything. Another favorite game she likes to play is taking things out of baskets, drawers, and purses, but after she takes things out shedoes put it back. She is quite the monkey, climbing over everything! There is nothing that she can't get through, past, or around; her persistents is inevitable. Here are some of my favorite pictures from the month.

Having a great time on the Riverboat at Disneyland

Daddy trying to make the same look as Brookelyn. I think they look a lot a like in this picture.

I made this picture bigger thinking you might be able to see her cute, little tooth

She is so precious!
