First Animal Sound Before the Big "1"!

We have had a lot of firsts lately!  It's so exciting to see what she learns and does from day to day!  Here is a video of her first animal sound! You have to listen closely because this is the only time she does something quietly!  Excuse the shakiness of the camera! I was trying to record while sitting on the floor and blowing bubbles from the container sitting on the counter!  I have some good videos of her squealing with the bubbles but I like our little monkey video!

Spaghetti is what we are having for supper every night!  Last night we had spaghetti and I gave some to Brailyn.  I didn't cut it up this time. I figured she could handle it.  She had a blast!  We actually got to eat our food at a normal pace instead of really fast or really slow.  She just sat there and ate and played while we finished our supper!  Miracle food? I think so!  Hope Jody really likes spaghetti!

Yummy and so much fun!

This girl is definitely a pasta, potato, and bread girl!  That may not be a good thing!

Here are just a few pics from the past week.
Mmmm, mmmmm! I love spaghetti and meatballs!  Not sure how we got it above our eyebrows!

Ready to go cheer for the curley wolves! She looks so big!

Enjoying a nice day outside with our toes in the grass!

Family Fun Weekend!

We had a wonderful weekend!  Andy, Jennifer, and Madi came to Prescott.  They stopped at the house, we had some supper, then we got ready for the ballgame!  They looked too cute in their matching outfits!  We enjoyed the game! Well what we saw of it anyway.  We don't really get to watch the game anymore! HA!  Then on Saturday we headed to Neena and Papa Dale's for the day!  Neena and I got to watch Madi and Brailyn.  They are so much fun and the sweetest little girls if I do say so myself!  Brailyn walked quite a bit on Saturday!  She wanted to keep up with Madi so bad!  She would just let go of stuff and take off! A little too fast sometimes!  I think they are going to have lots of fun!  We may have our hands full.  I'm not sure which one will be the ringleader!  I think it may be about equal!  Brailyn would scream(just for fun), then Madi would! They loved that game!  Anyway, here are a few pics from the weekend!

All ready to go to the ballgame! The only way to get a pic together is to hold them down!

Aunt Jen keeping the little ones occupied!

Madi lost some steam! Don't worry she caught her second wind! I thought this pic was precious!

It got a little chilly! 

Oh I love it! 

The end to a wonderful weekend!  Do you like my mohawk?

Fun on the Farm!

So I know I have posted nearly everyday this week, but a lot of stuff has been happening. So here is another one!  After the fall festival yesterday we went down to Neena and Papa Dale's so daddy could do some work around their deer stands.  So I decided Brailyn would have her first farm experience.  I dressed her in her overalls and we took off!  After daddy got done with all his work, it was time for Brailyn to have some fun.  She took her first ride on the tractor with daddy! She wasn't so sure about it at first but after a while she had fun! Also, she only had one nap yesterday so she wasn't getting real excited about anything last night.  After her tractor ride, all three of us went for a 4-wheeler ride.  I think she liked the wind blowing in her face.  We rode up to see the cows.  She started getting excited by this point.  She really loved the cows!  She wanted to get them but they wouldn't get close enough.  We headed back and stopped to look at the ostriches.  She liked them too!  I didn't want them to come close!  After all our riding, she got to swing in the swing that the put up for Madi and her!  She really enjoyed herself on the swing.  At supper she had a little bit of a hamburger, but she chowed down on some tomato! She loved it.   It is so fun watching her feed herself!  We had a great day hanging out on the farm!  I think she is going to love it!

I love this picture! Riding off with daddy!

First tractor ride!

First 4-wheeler ride! Not fond of this pic of me, but it was the best we had!

Laid back on daddy letting the wind blow through my hair!

Let me get 'em! She looks so cute in her overalls!

Come here cows!


Just swinging! She was clapping, she was so excited!

Got a mouth full! I was cutting them up but she grabbed a big piece and popped it in!

I love some tomato!

Fall Festival and Fashion Show!

Today was Prescott's fall festival.  It's nothing real big but they have some booths and other activities and people from the community come and sell stuff too, kind of like a big garage sale.  On the courthouse lawn they had a few activities.  They had a pageant, the dance classes performed, a photo contest and this year a fashion show.  We entered Brailyn in the photo contest.  I'm not sure how she did. We did not get to talk to the lady doing it.  Brailyn was also in the fashion show.  The woman running the store asked us at the ball game the other night if Brailyn could be in it and wear her curley wolves tutu.  The tutu came from her store.  We told her yes, so today Brailyn modeled her tutu and one other outfit.  It was really fun and she looked cute.  We didn't get to get a lot of good pictures because it was going so fast, but we still got a few!  After the fashion show we just walked around a little enjoying the nice morning.  I think Brailyn had fun! We sure did! 

Before the fashion show started! This was her first outfit.  I think it's adorable! I may have to go buy it!

I love it!

In her second outfit! Her tutu!

Just hanging out, enjoying the ride!

11 months!

Our sweet baby girl is 11 months old today(by the time I get this posted it will probably be yesterday!) I can't believe we only have a month before she turns 1! We had a very fun, busy day today!  We met my sister and my niece and nephews in Magnolia today for lunch and shopping! Brailyn was supposed to nap on the way down there but she decided to just "talk" to me the whole way! It was so sweet! I ended up getting a few presents taken care of for upcoming events so that was good. My sister brought me the dress she picked up for me that Brailyn will wear for her 1st birthday party! I already have it planned just have to buy the needed things!  I can't wait! I'll talk more about that when the time comes! Right now we will focus on 11 months! 
At 11 months Brailyn can:
  • Give people "sugar" = a mouth open wide and usually a lick at the end!
  • Clap her hands- most of the time it is when we sing "If you're happy and you know it"
  • show you her tongue when asked!
  • show you her hair when asked!
  • wipe her nose when you give her a cloth or wipe!
  • This week she has started letting go of whatever she pulled up on and taking about 5-7 steps!
  • crawls all over the place!
  • says: dada, mama, doh(dog), and du(duck) discriminately!
  • go and get almost anything you ask her to get
  • turns the pages on her books
  • wave bye-bye and hi
  • blows kisses
  • gives hugs when asked
  • she eats anything we put in front of her! Today she had mac and cheese and some chicken nugget!
  • she loves her blanket buddy that we put in the crib for her to snuggle with! It usually works like a charm if she wakes up, she'll go right back to sleep!
  • she is beginning to climb on things!
  • she can drink from a cup but she would make a huge mess!
That is all I can think of right now!  Here are her 11 month pics!

We love our sweet baby girl!

Busy weekend!

This past weekend we went to Rye to see my mom and dad.  I hate it because we don't get to stay long.  It's always a quick trip, but we managed to squeeze a lot in.  Brailyn got to go see all of her great grandparents this weekend! She had a blast! She was the sweetest little girl too! On Friday night when it was time for bed, we went to tell everyone good night and she gave everyone sugar! This is the first time she has really done that! Then when we were leaving on Saturday she started blowing kisses! Of course she doesn't actually throw them away, but it's a start! Here are some pics from the weekend!
