Memorial Day

We had a great Memorial Day.  Our day started out with breakfast with some of David's family.  Logan had  so much fun with his cousins and we enjoyed chatting with his family.  After breakfast my parents took Logan and Brooklyn to Grantsville to look at some family members graves so that David and I could go see a movie with my siblings.  We went and saw Men In Black 3.  Of course the only thing I took pictures of were our last activity.  Swimming and BBQ at Aunt Kate and Uncle Michael's house.  It was our first time swimming this year.  Logan of course loved it.  He is a little fish.  Brooklyn loved it, but was so cold the whole time.  The pool is heated, but she was shivering like crazy.  That didn't stop her from wanting to be in the water.  It was a great day and we can't wait for lots more swim parties this summer!

Brooklyn in her cute bee swimsuit.  She is at such a difficult age with pictures.  All she wants to do is grab the camera.

The back of the swimsuit.  How cute are those wings?

He is so confident in the water with his life jacket on.  Hopefully pretty soon he will be confident without it too.

Brooklyn only wanted her daddy to play with her in the water.  She is definitely a daddy's girl.

I am so happy this kid loves the water so much.  And this life jacket makes this so much easier in the pool!

16ish Months

This is the most recent picture I could find.  It definitely shows her grumpy side!

This little lady is 16 months old.  I haven't done an update on her for awhile and I really need to document some of the things she is doing.
-We haven't been to the Dr. since she turned 1 but her weight is about 18 1/2 lbs.
-She absolutely loves the water.  She would take several baths a day if I would let her.
-She loves clothes and shoes.  She will definitely let us know if what we pick out for her to wear is not what she wants.
-When we pick her up to hug her she pats our backs.
-She loves to give kisses.
-She has a love/hate relationship with Logan.  She loves him so much and calls out for him when he is not around, but she also loves to push his buttons.
-She loves baby dolls.
-She loves to carry around purses.
-She is 12 teeth.  8 in the front and 4 molars.  Teething has been awful for her.  It is really sad to see how much her mouth hurts.
-Some words she says at 16 months: Mom, Dad, Logan (Wo), Hil, woof woof, meow, tweet tweet, go, car, bath, Grandma, Grandpa (bapa), ball, bow, she pretends to snore, juice, shoes, please, sorry, thank you, cracker, cookie, candy, fish, hot, cold, yes and her favorite word NO.  She is saying new things all the time.  She also will sign more, please, thank you, milk, candy, fish and sorry.
-She can point to her nose, eyes, mouth, ears, tummy, toes, hands, arms, legs, and hair.
-She doesn't really love to eat.  I am thinking it is from teething but things she will almost always eat are, any kind of fruit, cheese, chocolate milk, juice, spoonful of peanut butter, black beans, and any kind of sweet.  This girl has a major sweet tooth.
-For some reason this little lady loves to scream.  She screams when she is happy, mad, sad, or just because.  I am really hoping this is just a phase and it will end soon!
-She loves to dance.  She will dance to any kind of music and even tries to sing along.
-When you ask her to give you a high five she will.  When you ask her to give you bones she hits her head on our nuckles.
-Church is really getting rough with her.  She does not want to sit still.  Luckily I am in the nursery so she comes in there for half of the time so David can actually listen in class.
-Whenever she picks a flower she puts it up to her lips and blows on it.  Any kind of flower.
She is such a little diva, but I couldn't imagine her any other way.  We love our little drama girl and can't wait to continue to watch her learn more and more.

Puddle Jumping

This morning Logan looked outside the window and asked if he could go play in the rain.  So we did.  The kids had so much fun.  I don't know how they weren't absolutely frozen, but they were soaking wet and didn't want to go inside.

Brooklyn fell several times in the puddles and it didn't even phase her.

Logan loved running from far back and jumping in the puddle.

Her hands were frozen because she kept splashing the water with them.

My two cute kiddos playing together.

They had so much fun playing.  It makes me excited for when the rain is actually warm so they can go out and play again!
