6 Months

I cannot believe Brooklyn is already 6 months old. I feel like time goes twice as fast now that I have two kids.

Brooklyn's stats are:

Height: 24 1/4 in.-- 3%
Weight: 14 lbs. 8 oz.-- 20%
Head Circumference: 42%

Her stats are kind of all over the place. At 6 months Brooklyn:

-Hates eating baby food.
-Loves pickles!
-For the last month has just wanted Mommy. Cries a lot when she can't see me. Within the last week it hasn't been as bad so I am hoping this phase is on its way out.
-Loves to take showers and swim.
-Loves her big brother so much. He can almost always get a smile out of her.
-Has had some rough times sleeping through the night. Logan did this at this age too. I think its because she is teething.
-Loves playing with toys.
-Sits up on her own.
-Loves to spit.
-Her spitting up has slowed down which is awesome!
-Kicks so much when she is on her stomach is scoots her all over.
-Started sleeping in her crib just last night.
-Although a little more demanding is still such a good baby and such a joy!

Busy Summer

We have had such a busy summer. Last summer wasn't the greatest with me being pregnant, nannying, and working on our house all summer so my goal has been to make this summer awesome! We have been having so much fun. Here is some of our summer so far in pictures.

Ignore the poor quality of most of my pictures. My camera is really terrible.
Brooklyn tried cereal for the first time...and hated it. In fact she still hates it a month later. We have tried several vegetables and fruits with it and she still cries when we try to give it to her and spits it out of her mouth.

Logan took swimming lessons with my cute cousin. He is not quite swimming but is a lot more brave.
More swim lessons.
I asked Logan to change Brooklyn's diaper one morning expecting him to say no. He said he wanted to so I let him. Possibly one of the funniest things I have ever seen. I was crying I was laughing so hard. It was even a poopy diaper.
We have gone to Seven Peaks several times. Luckily, this is how Brooklyn spent most of her time. She is very much a mama's girl lately and will scream hysterically if I am not holding her.
Logan and Lincoln at Seven Peaks.
He is getting so brave in the water. Maybe by the end of the summer he will even go down the big slides with us.
We went to the Sandy Fair. This little lady was an angel in the stroller the whole time.
Logan had lots of fun at the fair. He got to do crafts, go on a firetruck, and get SWAG.
Logan insisted I take his picture. I am pretty sure we have this exact same picture from last year.
My kiddos in their Red, White, and Blue. Of course I couldn't get a good picture of the both of them.

I can't believe summer is already half way over. We still have lots more to do though including a vacation to Island Park with all of my dads family.

Backyard Campout

One thing David has been looking forward to since we found out we were having a boy was be able to do campouts with him. When we first started looking at out house one of the best things about it was the huge yard. Since David didn't have work this weekend we decided to take advantage of our awesome yard and do a campout. Logan was so excited about it and talked about it all day. While him and David were setting up the tent he was talking so fast and so much about all the things they were going to do.

First we had a fire to roast marshmallows. My parents got us this firepit for Christmas and we have definitely been getting use of it.

Next was reading stories in the tent. Logan loved that he got to sleep in a sleeping bag. After stories, Brooklyn and I went and slept inside and the boys read a few more books.
They slept out there all night. I thought for sure they would have ended up inside at some point in the night. Logan even out slept David. After he woke up he asked if we could do it again. Lucky for him there is a big cousin sleepover at my grandparents house tonight. He can't wait to sleep in the tent again!
