Look What we Found...

...In our basement! We aren't totally sure how it got there. David had been downstairs for about 10 minutes feeding his worms that he has for compost (so so gross!). He came back upstairs to get something and then went back down and right away said, "Uh there is a bird down here!" All of a sudden I hear chirping and David trying to catch it. He brought up this basket with a rug on top. We took pictures and set it free.
I left the door open to check the mail that day and David left the back door open while he was checking on his garden. We aren't sure who let it in. So far since we decided to buy this house we have had a dog sneak in, a cat, mice, and a bird. So crazy! Makes for great stories though.

Three Months

Our little Brooklyn Bean is 3 months! I cannot believe how fast the last three months have gone. She is such a joy. For the most part she is such a happy and content baby. She definitely has her moments, but we wouldn't trade her for anything!
(I am not sure why my camera put a weird date on the pictures.)
Things about Brooklyn at three months:
-If she doesn't have her binky in her mouth, she has her hands in there. (Like the picture above.)
-She is starting to drool a lot so I wonder if she is teething.
-She sleeps on average 9 hours a night and has since her first night home from the hospital.
-Is such a great nurser!
-Smiles like crazy at mostly everyone. Logan loves her a little too much so she doesn't just give smiles away to him.
-When she is fussy at my parents house, my dad can always calm her down by swinging her in her carseat.
-She is starting to grab at things.
-A couple of weeks ago she started to really find her voice. She squeals happily all the time and is especially loud when its quiet. Like in Sunday school...or when daddy is still sleeping in the morning.
-We think she looks just like a cabbage patch doll with her chubby chubby cheeks.
We love our Brookie bean so much and couldn't imagine life without her!

A family friend of ours guest posted on my moms blog this last week. She makes the cutest crafts and is giving one away on my moms blog. All you have to do is be a follower of both blogs and comment on both to let them know you are a follower. Just head over to my mom's blog here. I can't figure out how to post a picture of the cute craft, but it is very cute!
