So HAPPY To Be Your MOM!!!

Hi! Brooklyn had her one month check-up today. It has been a pretty crazy month for this little one. After a two week battle, she has finally gotten rid of her yeast infection...but now has developed GERD or gastroesophageal reflux disease. It's basically acid reflux, but it has been causing her a lot of pain. Poor little thing:( They prescribed her zantac today, so hopefully that helps. Other than that she is doing great! She has grown TWO inches and gained a WHOLE pound, so that makes her 8 lbs 10 oz and 21 inches! The question I get asked the most is how she does at night and I am happy to report, she does AWESOME! I feed and put her down at about 10 pm and she sleeps until 3 to eat and then sleeps until 6 or 7. It is really more than I could ask for! So different from her sleepless brother at that age. I think these two look a lot alike, but I can tell their personalities are completely different. Braden was a pretty fussy, crabby baby whereas Brooklyn is mostly chill and content with life.
No matter what though, I am so thankful to have these two!  There really isn't any other way I would want to spend my day! 

*On a side note- check out this new google chrome download I think it looks sweet and it makes the internet super SPEEDY!


Braden's New Trike

When my parents were here they brought Braden this trike, and he loved it, but it was a little small for him....

I looked on craigslist and I scored with this little beauty!

It is PERFECT and he is absolutely obsessed with it. It is now a daily thing that we MUST ride to the park. I follow him with Brooklyn in the stroller and off we go. He loves to lead the way and he is so good and stays on all the sidewalks and looks both ways before he crosses the street. I am so proud:)

Later that night Braden and Tom had on the exact same Nike outfits-It was so funny. I love my boys!!!


Easter Fun

I finally had both kiddies asleep at the same time and what did I do....Scrapbook-its like therapy for me.

On Saturday we drove to Mesa to Aunt Debbie's ward Easter egg hunt. Braden was a little freaked out by the Easter bunny.

Sunday we had a yummy ham dinner with the Garlock's and another Easter egg hunt in their backyard.

Week With The Fam

Oh my gosh, I am sorry it has taken me so long to post more pictures of this adorable baby girl!! She is the best baby and we are so blessed to have her here with us. My family left today:( It was so good to have them here and today is going to be a major reality check-we will see how it goes...Here are some pictures from this last week.

Pictures the hospital took

Braden reacted pretty much the way I thought he would. He wanted nothing to do with her and just pushed her away and said "NO BABY!"

He has warmed up a bit since then. He will now give her kisses, give her the pacifier, and play with her toys:)

My dad chillin' with Brooklyn

Tom only took one day off from work and he is so beat, but such a trooper! He just loves his little girl!

Her favorite spot to sit and hang out-propped up in the nursing pillow.

Her other favorite spot-the bouncer/vibrator.

Her favorite spot to take a nap-the swing.
