Deer season!

Last year Brailyn was exactly a week old on the opening day of deer season.  Andy and Jennifer bought her this darling camo outfit so she got all dressed up for the occassion and went on her first day trip to Neena and Papa Dale's to cheer her daddy on!  She was absolutely beautiful!

Such a sweet baby!  So tiny!

So this year we had to do the same.  She is 1 year and six days old!  Makes me want to cry!  She didn't have a camo outfit, but my sister gave me some carhartt overalls.  They are absolutely adorable!  So we got all dressed up and headed down to Neena and Papa Dale's again!

My sweet baby girl in her overalls!  She has changed so much!

We got to play with Madi for a little bit when we got there.  She spent the night with Neena and Papa Dale.  The girls had a big ol' time!  Now that Brailyn is walking everywhere, they can have some fun!  Madi is the funniest little girl around!  She keeps us laughing!

 Around our house we have had some new and exciting things happening.  Tonight, Brailyn stood up all by herself!  I wish I had a picture.  She has always liked to sit up on one knee and have her other foot planted on the floor.  Tonight she got up like that again and just stood up!  No hands or anything!  Now the fun really starts! 
   I have also been weaning her from nursing.  It has been going really well so far!  We cut out our third feeding tonight, the one right before bed.  This leaves just her morning feeding which I will cut out in a week.  It is a little sad, but I'm sure it will be okay, and our schedule will be a little more relaxed!  I have been worried about this one, but tonight we ate our cereal and drank some milk before our bath.  After her bath-time routine, I added in reading a book in place of the feeding.  We read books throughout the day, but we have never fit one in at bedtime.  She was the sweetest little thing.  She just laid back on me and listened beautifully!  She is my little sweetheart!  Daddy got a picture!  Thank you Daddy!

Mommy and Brailyn reading a book!  This book is too cute, and at the end it says "I will kiss you nighty-night."  Perfect bedtime book!

My baby is growing too fast!
